Quest to give to less privileged inspires me, says Zanzee Spa Beauty & Style CEO
Few beauty therapists have made the kind of telling impact that Elizabeth Bolatito Salami, CEO of Zanzee Spa Beauty and Style, has made in the last few years.
Although Zanzee Spa Beauty and Style is a household name in the industry, Salami Bolatito Elizabeth says the need to make more money and acquire the things she needs drives her to push more into exploring the industry.
“It has not been a smooth ride, but we are happy with how far we have come. I am not content with the journey so far, so I am not relenting.
“I still want to make more money and build a house. That’s part of my aspirations. I was able to conquer my early challenges with perseverance and determination,” Salami said in an interview with The Guardian.
The fashion and lifestyle therapist who has been toiling day and night to produce new Zanzee Styles for the Yuletide shares with the public what she and her team are up to.
“We’ve been very busy with the new designs, both male and female, ahead of the fast approaching Christmas season. So my handsome kings and pretty queens, it’s about time we showed the world we didn’t come to play. We came to rule, and rule we shall! I also want to use this medium to appreciate royal fans of Zanzee Spa Beauty and Style.
“I want to say a big thank you to you all for your love is so sweet. I do not take your love and patronage for granted. I know you’ve got lots of choices, but you chose me. Ese gan modupe o! Mio ni jo ra mi loju o ( I’ll never be full of myself!),” Salami said in her native Yoruba dialect.
She further advised young and upcoming fashion and beauty therapists to never give up, no matter the difficulty.
“I made sure I put in enough hard work without excuses. That’s why I would always tell the young ones who want to become self-made entrepreneurs to never give up on their dreams. They should work like slaves. Surely, tomorrow they will be crowned with success. I don’t believe that Nigerian youths are lazy. With the right tools and the right orientation, the sky becomes their stepping stones,” she added.
On how she’s been able to cope with running businesses on multiple fronts, the Zanzee Spa Beauty Style boss maintained that the nation’s fluctuating economy and copyright infringements have always been part of the issues she fought hard to overcome.
“Copyright has been my major challenge since inception. Then I also face economic challenges, especially the exchange rate. In addition, our kind of business also tackles unhealthy competition,” added Salami.
