Dr Saba Qutub of Armstrong Health and DRSQ Skincare has been named as a finalist for the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards in the Rising star and Multicultural Business Excellence category.
Dr Saba Qutub is a mother of two beautiful girls while balancing her successful career as a Medical Practitioner, Cosmetic Physician & an entrepreneur. Born and graduated in India, she moved to Australia for post-graduate training. With rest of the family in India, she struggled to build her business while figuring out the ropes of a toddler and a newborn and had times like breastfeeding her newborn in between clients.
In 2017 Saba opened Armstrong Health, which is a Smart Health Clinic working towards the emotional and physical health & well-being of individuals and families in Geelong. She later launched DRSQ Skincare in 2018. There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Dr Saba Qutub explains, “The word mumpreneur says it all. I love being both a mom and an entrepreneur, and I couldn’t see my life without either one of them. My children and business make me who I am, and I wholeheartedly believe that it’s important for mums to know that it is okay to want both!”
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Dr Saba Qutub gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise. “I believe that passion is a person’s driving force to be successful. If you are passionate about it, then you should chase it. That passionate drive should be deep at the bottom of your heart because starting your own business is hard work, and if someone isn’t genuinely passionate about it, they will most likely quit.”
