This is a follow up story for Sayar Care. If you're interested in reading how they got started, published over 2 years ago, check it out here.
Hello again! Remind us who you are and what business you started.
I’m Zee, I founded Sayar Care; we create new formulas using underutilized clinical research.
We found that existing clinical research is pretty underutilized due to the way studies tend to be arranged in the world of research. By using studies that have already been verified, we found that it’s possible to create unique formulas for unsolved problems.
Tell us about what you’ve been up to! Has the business been growing?
I’ve been letting Sayar run as it runs; the most interesting thing I’m working at the moment is an idea for making the concept of the blockchain have a greater real-world value. Its core idea is to use knowledge as a base; so we’re using the blockchain and your ears. I’m fascinated by it.
Your world is your world, and in all reality, you cannot prove it otherwise. As a result, the only thing you can do is what is for you.
The pandemic has actually directly affected Sayar; probably due to a combination of Amazon’s shipping changes and that people are spending less, our sales are quite reduced.
We’re holding on well. What pushes me forward there is the fact that research to create something can still be dramatically changed, giving users a way to acquire what they need faster and cheaper than what is currently the standard.
What have been your biggest lessons learned in the last year?
Unsure. I don’t head towards takeaway messages, but what I’ve noticed so far is that isolating people, forcing a drastic change, can cause great things to be made, great things to happen.
Sure, a pandemic can frighten people; but the world heads toward greatness, at a universal scale. You can see how that’s happened over time.
On a small scale, world change causes frightening things to happen. As the time after the event grows, it becomes clearer and clearer how the event in fact has led to an increase in the wonder of the world, an increase in understanding.
This universe is vast, and every action causes a multitude of further actions that are nearly unpredictable. And yet, life has gotten continuously better since the first human existed.
What’s in the plans for the upcoming year, and the next 5 years?
Move overseas, launch that audio project (sign up for the beta at nybble.me), maybe raise a family.
Moving overseas has been a long time goal, and my other projects are very conducive to a move.
Having a family is something I want. It’s a core aspect to who I am, and so it is included in where I’d like to life to be.
Have you read any good books in the last year?
Oh yeah totally. I’ve always loved Antoine de saint-exupéry’s The Little Prince; so I read all the rest of his works, and just loved them. I’m also remembering Stasiland by Anna Funder, a really altering read about East German and what it was like to live under that.
Antoine de Saint-exupéry is unique in his writing, in his discussion, in how he sees his world. It’s a glorious presentation of his experiences.
Anna Funder’s book was a great peek behind the curtain of what can happen under rulership and economy like what existed in East Germany. Seeing events in the past and how they resulted helps make the present and future greater.
Advice for other entrepreneurs who might be struggling to grow their business?
Find what it is that exists for you to do; the thing that simply is.
There’s little else. Your world is your world, and in all reality, you cannot prove it otherwise. As a result, the only thing you can do is what is for you.
Fighting against that just means pain, frustration. Fighting can only bring you away from the contentment that human desires.
Are you looking to hire for certain positions right now?
Maybe a Sen Dev., or someone with unique expertise in the blockchain. Someone with insight and ideas that I haven’t considered just yet.
