- Mention your struggle which you have to face to start your venture
Well, To be honest, I started with very ease, took money from my father and announced to be an entrepreneur with a promise that I will return his money within 6 months, also will add same amount to it, which thankfully I was able to do. I started off very well from Jaipur, Rajasthan but only recruitments weren’t giving me satisfaction, being a creative person, I always missed bring something unique and there from, I started my Events.
Gradually started with roadshows for brands like Yamaha/Sony/Panasonic and there from no looking back. Being an entrepreneur, I always had this freedom to imply my creative ideas and thoughts to it, which helped me in long run.
Mommies World For U & ME happened to me, when I was on a break from Solutions and a new mommie was finding few things not comfortable to handle, meanwhile a family tragedy, where I lost my dad, made me more focused towards this mission, where I wanted to help everyone in need, by me or some other mode. Started MW on Whatsapp with few moms in Feb 2014, took a big turn, when launched on Facebook on April 29th, 2014. A random initiative became goal of my life, for one simple reason that my father didn’t got last minute help and had to leave this world. I am so proud to share that MW isn’t helping mommies or kids but their families as well, in lots of ways, virtually.
MW Forum is my baby and have nurtured it since 2+years now. The love and support, I have received is beyond words. My father taught me to complete things before you head for new and that became my MANTRA of life. I still handle 4/5 projects same time but make sure to complete it as promised.
- From when you have started
Solutions Consultant will be completing 16 Years on Jan 10th, 2017 and MW Mommies World For U & Me is 2.5 years old now, growing with my toddler.
- Family Support
My father has been a role model to me, my mentor and my lifeline. I have been blessed to have a family where before my marriage, My Father Mother Sister Brother gave me full freedom and support to work and follow my dream paths and after marriage, my In Laws are playing same role. I have tremendous support from them to work and organise my lifestyle the way I want. After my Father, My husband is my backbone, he helped me after marriage at every step, where I needed it. My best Critic and Well Wisher J

My family has always been like a rock support with me, they are proud on me for choosing Solutions Consultant as a profession and MW as a personal choice. My College Friends and other relatives totally support and praise me.
- Ups and Downs Being an entrepreneur
Being an Entrepreneur, the only ups and downs, I felt was the time, which I had to manage initially with my family, a workaholic like me, work without looking at watch, but this way, I feel to be growing more and learned to prioritize the things around me. No entrepreneur is perfect, we all are still learning with lots of ups and downs in life and that’s what makes us STRONG !
- Your Dream
Dream is to touch the Sky!! To touch lives around me, To make my dad proud and to be able to fulfill my child’s all desire. Become a BEST MOTHER, Successful Entrepreneur and want to remain a child at heart.
- Are you happy choosing your way to be an entrepreneur?
Yes Yes !! Very much !! Business runs in my blood ! Very Happy to be an Entrepreneur J
- Difficulties you have to face being a women in your field
Difficulties, being a women, not really but got good competition from other women and trust me, more than defeating them, I loved winning!! You see, the purpose isn’t to insult or pull down anyone but to excel and rise high in whatever we can do, you must have heard, ACTIONS SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS, I believe in it totally.
- What do you think about necessity of empowerment of woman
Women, today are very strong, self-starter and eager to explore new horizons. We also keep meets for women empowerment where we meet Powerful Women who are doing exceptionally well with their business. The word “Empowerment” has “Women and Power” in it and every field, women are proving themselves gracefully.
