[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, my name is Nimi. I'm Jaswant. And I'm Simi, and we're here to help you turn your passion into a full-time business. NIMI KULAR: We run a family business where we produce and sell natural Indian seasonings and cooking kits that help you make authentic, healthy, and delicious Indian dishes at home in a fraction of the time. We started this business seven years ago as a side project, and we turned it into a full-time business.
Although we started small, we have now sold thousands of cooking kits throughout North America, and we just signed a contract to sell our Indian spice kits in Whole Foods in the US, which is a huge milestone for us. Shopify has helped us expand our business, and we're excited to help you turn your passion to profit and create a thriving business through this course. SIMI KULAR: Each of us are going to teach different lessons in the course, and we want to be very clear with you that this is not a course about selling food products.
This is a course about creating and launching your dream business. Whether you want to create and sell jewelry, clothing, food products, or invent something brand new, this course can help you. This course is designed to be a guideline for how to start your business. You can take the course in order, or you can jump into different modules based on where you are now. Each lesson stands alone. Now let's go to the first lesson where my mom will share with you how and why we started our business.
