Meet Sativa Belser

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sativa Belser.

Hi Sativa, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I wasn’t exposed to social hookah smoking until I moved to Atlanta, early 2019. I’ve tried hookah smoking once or twice back home in Ohio, but it was a different ball game when I got to Atlanta; a totally different experience. The hookah scene here is like no other. I have witnessed the popularity of hookah smoking amongst the young crowd, and the more my social life expanded in this new city of mine, the more I fell in love with it too. Hookah smoking makes me feel good, in a sense of a buzz-like effect, and it’s a social activity that I find fun to share amongst my peers. In Atlanta, you will find hookahs in just about any nightclub and a few restaurants and lounges too. I found interest in starting my own hookah business, Sohl Hookah, with hopes of expanding social hookah smoking. I want to widen the use of hookah smoking to different audiences, and the best way to do that is to bring the hookahs to private events… events where you normally won’t find hookahs, such as weddings, corporate parties, birthday parties, things of that nature. My goal is to provide a pleasant hookah experience to any event while sharing my love for hookah with clients and their guests.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Starting your own business, big or small, has its rewards and its obstacles. Unfortunately, the obstacles are unavoidable. One of my biggest obstacles with Sohl Hookah is the pandemic. With the virus not really going anywhere, people have had their suspicions of hosting private events to prevent the spread of disease. While launching this business in the heart of the pandemic, business has been quite slow; however, with faith and patience, I anticipate that as the world slowly gets back to where things left off, more events will be in effect and Sohl Hookah will be providing luxury hookah services to add a memorable experience to any occasion.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Sohl hookah was formed around the vision of enhancing private events while providing the best hookah experience. I proudly utilize quality hookahs, heat management devices, and top brand tobacco flavors to allow for an amazing hookah session. Aside from Sohl Hookah, I work full-time as a Triage Nurse in Dermatology and I am a Mommy to an adventurous and bright 3-year-old.

How do you define success?
My definition of success is bigger than a career. Bigger than wealth. Success is a feeling of accomplishment from within, and the path one takes to reach their success is different for everybody. I find that success comes with years of experience, the good and the bad. It comes with wisdom. It comes with faith, desire, and a purpose. It comes with happiness, and it comes with love.
