Making Shopping Safer, with Sabrina Noorani
After a very bad allergic reaction to a skin cream, Sabrina Noorani discovered that there was no standardization for ingredient lists on product labels. So she started ClearForMe, a centralized platform that works with brands and retailers to provide ingredient education and transparency to customers.
Here’s some of what you’ll learn in this episode:
- Why ingredient lists on products can be confusing or misleading.
- Why it took almost two years of struggling to get the business off the ground.
- The reason ClearForMe didn’t end up being a consumer-facing business.
- The benefits Sabrina has experienced from joining an entrepreneurial coaching program.
- Checking goals: If you set measurable goals and check on them, you’ll avoid feeling like you haven’t accomplished anything.
- Different names: There are many different ways that certain common ingredients can be listed on product labels.
- Setting deadlines: Setting a deadline for something can light a fire under you to get it done.
- Goals first: Setting a measurable goal right off the bat means you’ll realize sooner if a method isn’t working.
- Issues in common: Entrepreneurs can relate to one another’s issues even if they’re in entirely different industries.
