Inspiration to continue the start-up journey

Stemming from the passion of entrepreneurship of the mother that he always respected – Ms Dong Hai, the businesswoman behind the famous leather shoes brand Dong Hai Sai Thanh. Ms Dong Hai successfully built a famous and long-standing brand of high-end leather shoes with more than 80 years of development in Vietnam. For Mr. Paul Hung Nguyen, Ms Dong Hai is not only a traditional mother taking on a family and caring childrens, but also a brave and assertive entrepreneur on the market. He said that one of the decisive key factors for her success is that she was always positive and proactive in all parts of her life.

From the inspiration of his mother, Mr. Paul Hung Nguyen always wishes to spread the spirit of positivity, proactiveness of her life to all Vietnamese women. He said: “Modern women today are faced with a lot of pressure to support their families, to strive for their careers and most importantly, to love themselves all at the same time. In order to do that, it is essential to have good health, optimism, and a blithesome spirit”.

When the opportunity came, due to the frequent traveling between the U.S. and Vietnam, Mr. Paul Hung Nguyen often faced digestive disorders because of time zone difference. On an accidental occasion in the US, he discovered that Kombucha is a fermented drink that is not only delicious, but also rebalances the digestive system, helping to support a better immune system.

From the “opportunity” to find out the secret to improve his health, Mr. Paul Hung Nguyen decided to embark on the journey of giving the gift of health to everyone in 2019.
