Irfanali Moledina has a nose for business as a founder of an essential oils business | Canadian Immigrant

As a young immigrant from the U.K. growing up in Calgary, there was one thing that really bugged Irfanali Moledina about his home in Canada: mosquitoes. He used to use bug repellant pretty enthusiastically, until he noticed that the chemical-laden product caused the siding of his family home to permanently stain!

That memory stuck with him as he graduated high school and went to the University of Calgary to study commerce. While still studying, he started a small distribution business. The product? A natural bug repellent.

“I always knew I wanted to be a business guy,” says Moledina, who decided to pursue an accounting designation after university, too. Today, the Ismaili CPA is not only a partner of a busy Calgary public practice firm RMI & Associates, he is also the CEO and co-founder Natural Distributions Ltd., a.k.a. Purple Frog — the evolution of his earlier insect repellant distribution business.
