Meet Maahi

March 23, 2024

Meet Maahi of Maahi’s Minis and More!  She is a student at Hartshorn School in Short Hills, NJ, and we are excited to showcase her business in the TREP$ Student Spotlight.  Read more to learn how Maahi’s’s participation in TREP$ helped her learn to be attentive to potential customers:

My name is Maahi and my business’ name is Maahi’s Minis and More. The products I sold at the TREP$ Marketplace were soaps and lip balms.  I always wanted to make homemade natural soaps.  My sister had the idea for the lip balms.

Participating in TREP$ was not like any experience I’ve had before.  It felt like I really owned my own mini business and like I had a little shop.  I enjoyed walking around to my other friends’ shops as well.

The most challenging part of my business for me was paying attention the whole time, because some people walked away from my table since I was not tending to them.  I also could have made more lip balms, as they sold out very fast.

The part I was most proud of was my display.  I think the display caught a lot of people’s eyes.

My advice for anyone planning on starting a business is to start early because it took 5 weeks for me to make 50 soaps!
