What inspires women entrepreneurs to dream big and keep going for it? Some enterprising women business owners tell us who they find inspiring.
Khyati Babbar, the Founder of Santulan, a Health & Wellness organisation, finds Nisha Dubey who heads the Human Resources for Grasim Industries and Amita Maheshwari, the head of HR at Star TV very inspiring. The one aspect that Khyati finds common in both of them is that. “they are authentically vulnerable with their own teams.” The communication that they have with their team wherein experiences are shared and explored is what inspires her the most.
The founder of Elder Care Services, Tanvi Mallya, gets her inspiration from Pooja Dhingra, the founder of LE 15m a high end patisserie. What she likes the most about Pooja is the honestly with which she started her business with, and the fact that she has focused on her own strengths.
Babita Baruah, Senior Vice President at J. WalterThompson, had a very different take on this question; she is inspired by all the home chefs who have managed to “overcome the rigours of work at home without stepping out of their homes.” These are the people who have the ability to create an economically independent identity for themselves and be competitive with other large businesses dealing with food. It is this “resilience, competitiveness and confidence” that inspires Babita.
Monika Manchanda, a Food Consultant and Blogger, feels that Sairee Chahal of Sheroes, a career hub for women, is her inspiration. Sairee’s focus on bringing women back to work is what should inspire everyone. Monica adds firmly, “We need more women back at work.”
The founder of Winnaki Kids, Archana Kale, looks up to Erin Brockovich who started out with nothing except a lot of passion but was able to do what she believed in, which Archana believes is an important trait in any business. She says, “Unless you go after it, you are never going to achieve it. You’re going to fail and that’s pretty depressing.”
