The face behind MISEICO | Sustainable Skincare & Wellness- Michelle Chan
What’s your story?
I am a lifelong learner, deeply passionate about and inspired by nature’s boundless wisdom. Like many women, I’ve navigated the transformative phases of perimenopause and menopause. In my search for answers to ease these life stages, I studied natural skincare formulation, exploring the ways nature can holistically and sustainably support our well-being. With a vision to redefine ageing as a chapter of empowerment and self-love rather than a period of decline, MISEICO was born. More than just products, MISEICO offers sustainable skincare and wellness solutions that are a testament to the belief that age mirrors wisdom, experience, and the beauty of evolution. We champion each individual’s journey, encouraging them to embrace life’s stages with grace, confidence, and a commitment to holistic well-being.
How & Why did you start your company/passion work?
Starting a business is both challenging and rewarding: 1. Trust Your Instincts: Your intuition, honed by your experiences as a woman and possibly a mother, is a powerful tool. Use it to guide your decisions and understand your target audience better. 2. Embrace the Journey: There will be ups and downs, but each challenge presents an opportunity for growth and learning. Celebrate your successes, big or small, and learn from the setbacks. 3. Seek Support: Surround yourself with a strong support system, be it family, friends, or like-minded entrepreneurs. Remember, asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. 4. Balance & Boundaries: It’s essential to set boundaries and prioritise self-care. While passion and determination are vital, so is taking time for yourself and your loved ones. 5. Stay Authentic: Your authenticity will resonate with your audience and set you apart in the marketplace. Stay true to your values and mission.
How do you bring BALANCE to your roles as MOTHER: FOUNDER: SELF?
Balancing the roles of MOTHER:FOUNDER:SELF requires intention, flexibility, and self-awareness. Here’s how I approach it: 1. Prioritize Self-Care: This is foundational. By ensuring I recharge mentally, emotionally, and physically, I can give my best to both my family and my business. Whether it’s a short workout or just some quiet reading time, I make it a point to carve out moments for myself. 2. Time Blocking: Designating specific chunks of time for work, family, and personal pursuits helps create clear boundaries. For instance, setting ‘office hours’ for work and specific quality time for my children ensures that each role receives dedicated attention. 3. Seek Support: I lean on my support system—be it family, friends, or team members—to help manage tasks, provide emotional support, or simply lend a listening ear. 4. Reflect and Adjust: Every week, I reflect on what went well and what didn’t. This helps me adjust my strategies and ensures that no role overshadows the others for an extended period.
Any recent accomplishment you would like to share with us? (personal/professional)
On the professional front, MISEICO recently launched our Aromatherapy Elixirs, a line crafted to support those navigating the challenges of perimenopause and menopause. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, reinforcing our mission to offer sustainable skincare and wellness solutions and to champion a holistic approach to well-being. On a personal note, I recently completed a mindset course, which not only advanced my personal development but also equipped me with tools to integrate a growth mindset into MISEICO’s brand ethos and product experience. Both of these accomplishments underscore my commitment to continuous learning and growth, both for the benefit of MISEICO’s community and for my personal journey.
