Meet Poorly Boo
How did it all start?
Poorly Boo was the vision of Mumpreneur
Manju Bhatia, who quickly realised that many new parents did not have the
essential remedies in their homes for when their little ones became ill. Having
young children herself, Manju was often in the company of other mums with small
children and often heard them saying their baby had a high temperature and had
to run out to get some medicine.
Manju thought, “Why are so many new
parents so ill equipped at home? Why do so many not have the medicine in the
cupboard to alleviate their symptoms?”
Manju become a mum in 2013, she made sure she was prepared with all of the
remedies and over-the-counter medications that she might need. Although it
didn’t stop the sleepless nights when they were poorly, it did mean she had what
she needed so the family could all rest a bit easier.
2017, Poorly Boo has been selling essential healthcare products online at: https://poorlyboo.com/
Who is Manju?
is originally from Yorkshire, where her interest in business came from working
in her parents’ uniform shop, Natasha’s.
The family run business, which had several outlets in Yorkshire, sold
school uniforms to dozens of schools in the region. At a young age, Manju had a
strong business nous and enjoyed the buzz of a business environment.
helped her father set business goals and was successful in growing the business
to reach a turnover of more than £1 million.
successfully reaching their goal of £1million, Manju left her family home to
get married and start her own family. She focused her attention on raising her
2 children, and after spending time with new mums and their babies, Manju
realised there wasn’t anything in the market to help new parents understand
what medicines and remedies were important to have on hand.
Her eureka moment
came during these conversations, and PoorlyBoo was soon launched.
