What's your business, and who are your customers?

SleepGift offers unique products to provide protection from ever-increasing EMF and 5G radiation, which negatively affects sleep and mental health. Our customers are middle-aged, educated mothers who are in charge of their family members.

Tell us about yourself

I am a medical doctor with a Ph.D. and 25 publications in medical journals. I started searching for solutions for my teenager's sleep problems. When I read an article about the link between EMF exposure and dropped sleep hormone levels, it made sense. I developed special weighted blankets that are made with EMF shielding fabric and filled with natural materials from the earth.

When the sleep quality and quantity are improved by decreasing EMF exposure, then the body's physical and mental wellness improves. I would be happy to offer this solution to increase awareness of the health risk of wireless signals around us and improve lives through natural and safe solutions without any side effects.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I created one-of-a-kind products that improve people's health and wellness while protecting them from long-term damage from invisible EMF radiation.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

In today's high-tech world, managing a business requires many skills and comes with a lot of responsibilities. The challenges lie between the financial stability of the business and being socially and environmentally responsible. Finding a balance between them is the hardest thing.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Build a team with multi-tasked individuals and listen to them.
  2. Make your team's well-being a priority rather than making a profit.
  3. Take action to preserve the planet for future generations.
