Meet Operate CEOS Malv Hayer And Kash Atwal
Hello, It Is A Pleasure To Interview You. Tell Me Something Important About Yourself
We are two young entrepreneurs from Birmingham, where we are in the property business, and we’re now venturing into the Sports drink business with the UK’s first nootropic sports drink, OPERATE.
What Inspired You To Start Your Business?
We are both into fitness and wanted to create a drink that provided health benefits, as well as a great taste. Nootropic is a fascinating area, and we see this being a massive trend over the next few years. Nootropics are drugs, supplements, and other substances claimed to improve cognitive function, mainly executive functions, attention, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals. So by including these in a refreshing, hydrating sports drink, you get lots of benefits in each sip!
What Services Do Your Business Provide?
We launched OPERATE with three flavours:
Raspberry and cranberry – To help speed recovery after exercise
This drink contains natural raspberry and cranberry juices plus Ashwagandha extract to help you recover from the mental and physical exertion of exercise. Amino acids help your muscles recover, whilst the naturally occurring antioxidants and polyphenols in green tea and goji berries will ensure you enjoy the benefits of your workout for longer.
Lemon and Yuzu – To give you a boost.
Enjoy the natural zingy flavours of yuzu and lemon to keep you refreshed with none of the guilt. Natural caffeine from green tea gives you a pick-me-up whilst the Vitamin B-blend contributes to energy-yielding metabolism. Acetyl-L-carnitine can help improve your memory and thinking skills, making your body and mind work harmoniously.
Peach and Green Tea – To perk up your energy levels
Power your workout with Vitamin B3, which reduces tiredness and fatigue. L-theanine, found in green tea, is used as a supplement to boost mental function, whilst the naturally occurring caffeine will kick-start your energy.
How Do You Stay Motivated In Your Business?
We stay motivated by always having the end goal in mind and never forgetting why we started this business. We want to help people lead a healthy lifestyle and create a product that allows your mind and body to perform when you need it most. That’s what OPERATE is all about. Keeping these goals and the passion at the brand’s core makes it easy to stay motivated – even when things are a bit tough!
What Challenges Do You Face The Most?
Our biggest challenge is managing our time as we both run other businesses. When we started OPERATE, we committed to spending equal time on both businesses. We also put a lot of focus on the structure and processes, ensuring everything runs as smoothly as possible. We’d still like another few hours each day, but we can give our best to both businesses by keeping focused.
How Do You Handle The Challenges Along With Family Life?
We both try our best to take time away from work to spend quality time with our families to ensure a healthy balance between the two. We believe that not taking time out is a ‘false economy’ – you must look after your mind, body and family if you want to look after your business.
What Do You Do For Self-Care?
We both love going to the gym – so that’s a big part of our self-care routine. For us, it’s about keeping active, eating healthily, and drinking OPERATE!
I Am Sure Some Aspiring Entrepreneurs Are Reading This. What Advice Would You Give Them?
Our advice is to stay consistent, believe in your vision, and take action. And always remember why you started your business venture in the first place.
Last But Not Least, Do You Have Any Questions For Me?
First, I would like to thank you for allowing us to be on such a great platform. I would love to know what motivated you when starting this platform and what made you start it?
Thank you very much for the question, Malv and Kash.
I started blogging because I wanted to empower women (single mothers specifically) to become more independent and lead a happy and healthy lifestyle. The only way I could do that was to share my own story. In terms of motivation, I had a lot of self-doubts and a lack of confidence in the beginning – what is it about my story that people would find exciting, and How would my story change other people’s life.
After researching social media and other platforms and outlets, I realised that many single mothers and women were struggling with everything. Whether is it with a newborn baby, managing finances, not knowing where to start from or what the future holds for them. I also noticed that there wasn’t enough support to empower single mothers or women, in general, to become more independent.
When I started sharing my story, I discovered that many readers were inspired to change their stories and learn different ways to turn their dream of a better lifestyle into reality. This motivates me to carry on and search for other ways to help.
I want to say a Huge Thank you to Malv and Kash for participating in this interview.
And I wish them all the best.
I hope you enjoyed that.
