Shibon was tired of working her 9-5 and decided to spice up her work life balance

She used the workshops to help her set up a business to honour her late Mum’s memory.

After 20 years as a Housing Officer, Shibon was feeling burned out and in need of a new direction.

She loved cooking authentic Jamaican food - specifically her late Mum’s recipes - and was looking for a way to reignite her Mum’s memory. She signed up for the business workshops and Olive Mae’s kitchen was born…

“It was what I needed. The courses helped me break everything down, financing, cash flow and how to promote my business. It was a really big help.”
