Welcome to Beyond Artistique

Saturday, 12 March 2016
Here is a little background about our business. This business is a partnership between 3 couples (husband and wife) and all of us are coming from engineering and medical background.



This business was initially set up during a crisis period. Two of us were on unpaid leave to focus on our autistic children. The rest were in another part of Malaysia (Sarawak) for their job commitments. Oil price was going down continuously, a huge amount of oil workers have lost their jobs, goods and services tax was going up, recession that results purchasing power to decline badly, etc. Yes, all in one at the same time. Many entrepreneurs had to shutdown their businesses temporarily.

We take it as a challenge. In Islamic view, 9/10 of the income (source of rezeki) is coming from business. Yes, quite a big portion, but it comes with big risks and challenges as well. Business teaches us to put trust and reliance on Allah that rezeki is coming from Him.

“If you had all relied on Allah (SWT) as you should rely on Him, then He would have provided for you as He provides for the birds, who wake up hungry in the morning and return with full stomachs at dusk.” [At-Tirmidhi]

Unlike persons who are employed full time, they know that they will receive a fixed salary every month. The level of tawakkal may not be as strong as the full time entrepreneurs. May Allah grant us the highest state of faith one day.

Back to Beyond Artistique, it is a combination of a few businesses under one roof - boutique, mini cafeteria, beauty spa, hair salon and class for selected courses. The name is combined from our two niche businesses - Beyond Mama and Artistique Couture.

Our boutique cafe is based on vendor concept, but we are adding our own products in stages. To the interested vendors out there, you are welcome to apply our vendor program. Minimize your risk of spending huge amount of money to pay for commercial shop, staff salary and utility bills.

Since all business partners are having full commitments at work, we may have limited time to update this blog regularly. However, you may follow our Instagram @beyondartistique that is linked to our Facebook page to see our updates.

Till we meet again :)
