Every beginning is difficult. I remember mine like it was yesterday. It was back in 2013 when I’ve decided to embark upon this entrepreneurial road of mine. Everything at that point was limited. I had limited access to funds, limited access to resources, therefore extremely limited access to talent and a computer that I had to keep connected to a charger constantly because my battery was acting out. Even my phone had limited performances. Oh yes, even today, I remember this so vividly, but much more than the difficulties, I remember the people who back than helped me shape and build Bastet Noir and Angelina Blazheska was one of them.
Angelina Blazheska, the founder of FitKit is wearing Bastet Noir’s pink silk dress
Today, Angelina is the founder of an amazing fitness app called FitKit, which is a monthly subscription based mobile app that lets you exercise in Skopje’s best fitness centers, yoga studios and gyms of your choice. This powerful woman is a mechanical engineer whose ambitions for world domination and strong sense of self make her the ultimate cool face of Bastet Noir and one of the most interesting women entrepreneurs we’ve had the pleasure to work with.
Who is Angelina Blazheska?
Angelina is a mechanical engineer, newbie entrepreneur and a girlboss :)
Almost a year ago, you’ve launched the app FitKit. Can you tell us a bit more about the idea behind it and what you’ve learnt while building it?
What’s a normal working day like in the life of Angelina?
I don’t have normal working days. :D Somedays I don’t have the time to take a shower or workout, but only yesterday was Monday and I spent normal working hours in a spa center.
Do you have a motivational ritual, something you do to keep yourself focused?
No, I don’t… Do those things really work? Now you need to help me find one! :D
Favorite female empowerment speech
3 most important lessons you would like to share with everyone who wants to start their own business…
" Don’t overthink anything, sometimes all you need to do is trust your gut, get up and do it.
Its okay to have expectations, but its not okay to be too hard on yourself when you don’t live up to them.
Reward yourself — thats why you became your own boss. And don’t forget to give back!"
Women who inspire you…
Girlboss that I admire and look up to is Sophia Amoruso. And of course Emma Watson, always and forever — no one can outsmart Hermione!
