Meet Trailblazer Farah Yazid

Today we’d like to introduce you to Farah Yazid.

Farah, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started making healing crystal jewelry in 2014. It was a really rough year and the crystals were so helpful that I wanted them with me all the time! I didn’t always have pockets, so I started making jewelry for myself. I was approached about my jewelry so frequently that I just decided to make a business out of it so 4 years later, here I am!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road but I feel like I managed really well. From dealing with licensing, to suppliers, to taxes, to learning the best ways to utilize social media. It’s a lot but with a bit of trial and error I’ve caught on.

Starting a business seem so overwhelming if you don’t know how to get the right information, so my advice to others just starting out: do your research, don’t be afraid to ask for help, never stop looking for ways to grow, and whenever in doubt, seek advice from professionals.

You got this!

We’d love to hear more about Farah Yazid Designs.
I am a jewelry designer that makes handmade healing crystal jewelry. Every piece is unique and has healing properties like lifting your mood, curing a headache, easing anxiety, increasing focus, boost your communication skills, etc.

My first crystal was Clear Quartz which is great for balance, boosting positivity, absorbing negative emotion/energy, protection against radiation from electronics and much more!

Clear Quartz helped me to deal with the loss of a really close relative and I’ve been hooked ever since.

What makes my business different is that it’s not just about jewelry. it’s about looking good and feeling good and sharing those vibes with the world. My goal is to help people be the best version of themselves.

So much of the media coverage is focused on the challenges facing women today, but what about the opportunities? Do you feel there are any opportunities that women are particularly well positioned for?
I feel the opportunities for women are endless. As long as we support each other, there’s nothing we can’t do.
