Ep. 166: Sustainability For Kids - An Entrepreneur’s Journey From Vision To Reality With Anhely Millán

Interviews, strategy and advice for building your online business with your host Trudy Rankin. 

 

 

 Summary

 

Ever struggled with creating an online presence for your brand new business?  Especially if you have zero experience with website building or how to build a sales funnel?

Anhely Millan, the voice behind Sustainability for Kids, has “been there, done that” and learned how to turn those challenges into learning opportunities.

Anhely is on a mission to provide education in sustainable practices and develop collaboration opportunities for the greater good of our planet.

She discovered her passion for education when she was a Chemistry teacher for a secondary school while studying Applied Chemistry at University. That experience made her want to continue educating children in complex topics.

 In early 2022, Anhely founded Sustainability for Kids and published her first educational book ‘The World Behind Recycling’ with the aim of providing children the knowledge and tools to embrace sustainability in their day-to-day activities.

Join me as we dive into Anhely Millan’s journey of setting up her website with zero knowledge, navigating through many, many iterations of that website and her “aha” moment with Canva, all thanks to her hairdresser!

 

We also talked about:

 

  • The pressing need for a shift in mindset amongst entrepreneurs AND people who care about sustainability, prioritising collaboration over competitiveness
  • The challenges faced by entrepreneurs when setting up online platforms
  • The role of family, acquaintances, and sometimes even a hairdresser in a business journey
  • The importance of resilience in business, fuelled by passion and purpose
  • The impactful role that community support and validation plays in an entrepreneur’s journey
