|They say you shouldn’t mix friendship with business. But Sheetal Bapat and Anjali Joshi have a different tale to tell. Before joining hands to start their own venture, both women were holding their own in full-time jobs. Sheetal was working in the Software industry at first, and then as an IT teacher for a couple of years. Anjali was working as an accountant for 12 years, before she decided to hand in her papers. With time on their hands, the two friends turned to their shared passion of creating decorative embroidered items.
From passion to profession
Things took an interesting turn when the two friends decided to sell these decorative items, and found many takers. With a renewed sense of motivation, they decided to convert their hobby into a professional business. But how can you run a business, when you have no clue where or how to start your business? That’s when the duo heard about deAsra, and made it a point to attend one of our seminars.
The deAsra seminar lights the way
The deAsra session outlined the basics of starting a business, which was eagerly attended to by the two enterprising women. Inspired by what they had learnt, the two entrepreneurs then booked an appointment with the deAsra team. Looking back, Sheetal and Anjali feel that this was the defining moment of their professional lives.
