When I can’t look for inspiration on my Pinterest boards, I start looking up to my favourite entrepreneurs whose words and actions are nothing less than a Gold mine. I do follow them on Twitter but what intrigues me more than their tweets are their interviews and chats which can teach anyone on how to simplify their complicated lives and reach zenith levels of success. Their journeys are so motivating and full of wisdom which don’t just make for a good read but also for life-changing lessons.
In no particular order, here goes my list of the top entrepreneurs which everyone must be following:
Swati Bhargava is the co-founder of a company which has brought a revolution in the way in which people shop online now. The name is CashKaro.com. The trend trending in e-commerce right now is cashback. It means that when you shop from online shopping sites, you get to earn! CashKaro is India’s top coupons and cashback websites which always provide that extra to its users and thus make their shopping experience rewarding. She was an investment Banker who turned into an entrepreneur. Coming from a small town ‘Ambala’, the lady turned her dreams into a reality.
Rati Tehri Singh
Cofounder of totalgadha.com and founder of makeupandbeauty.com, Rati Tehri Singh is a perfect example of a girl who just decided to pursue her dreams. She had a passion for cosmetics and started writing about her experiences with different brands on her website. Soon, she found voices from other writers too. Her site has grown on to become India’s top makeup and beauty website in India. She also owns a Fashion and lifestyle blog which is full of awe-inspiring looks and words.
The founder and CEO of Limeroad.com, Suchi Mukherjee is extremely happy in the manner in which her vision has shaped up. Her scrapbooking community has cent percent original user based content which is extremely helpful. She thought of Limeroad venture after giving birth to her second child when she realized while browsing online for jewellery that there was no consumer technology play that made discovery of products easy and entertaining, just like reading a nice magazine. Go through her interviews and you will be filled with motivation to kick-start your tiring day.
She is the co-founder of makeadiff.in, which aims to mobilize young leaders to ensure equitable outcomes for children in shelters across India. Determined on taking the problem of socioeconomic inequality in India, Gloria Benny came up with this. The girl even worked with Google for 5 years after she completed her graduation. The volunteers in MAD teach more than 6000 children across 20 cities in India. And the number is only bound to increase. Her social venture has even received various awards and won hearts of millions.
Aditi Gupta is the founder of menstrupedia.com, which serves as a friendly guide to healthy periods. Brought up in a small town ‘Jharkhand’, she had to put up with the shame associated in buying sanitary napkins and as a result, had to resort to using rags. It was only when she started with her college; she realized that there was so little awareness regarding it in India. That is when she came up with this idea. Her Hindi comic book which was developed for educating girls on this topic won her a Ford foundation scholarship.
There are many more Indian women entrepreneurs who prove that women weren’t born to spend their time in just kitchen.
