Ex-TV personality and teacher, Nura, is the owner of Pearlista. A female-only hair salon that she has built from scratch without any background experience. Pearlista offers a wide range of hair styling services and also produces its own line of products such as shampoos, conditioners and makeup remover wipes. Nura impressively achieved to physically expand Pearlista at other prime locations and today, it is at Eunos, Clementi & Orchard. Apart from business, she’s a seasoned Real Estate agent with Propnex since 2012.
Nura’s parents’ expectation has led her to start her career in education as a teacher. Due to motherhood, becoming a realtor was the only sensible option for a work-life balance.

In this episode, we talk more about her early days, entrepreneurship journey, motherhood and more.
