What was the inspiration for you start your own business or take up the career you are in?
Coming from a family where women being independent was always a focus and where even my paternal grandmother was a working woman, it was an inspiration .We were always told to be independent and make a space for ourselves. Hence, the go getter attitude was there from beginning.All the women in the immediate family before marriage were working women and achievers in their own spaces.However, post marriage challenges were there as none in the immediate family were into jobs. Hence, to be sure of myself and be determined and clear of my goals was important. I knew my journey in life clearly. Hence, to balance both profession and personal was something I tried to do in the best manner.
