I am Pinky Dawar, a housewife, a mom and now a home-based women entrepreneur. I am based in Delhi. It's been 8 years of marriage and a mother of 2 little kids, I have realized that money is very important in one's life - I mean money that you earn on your own, money that gives you satisfaction, confidence, and financial independence. My husband is always there to support me but I always get to hear from my known ones that I am good for nothing because I am not financially strong. This actually hurts me a lot. And now that my children have started going to school, I really wanted to do something that will help me to earn while being at home. Since my kids are still small, I didn't really want to take up a job though my husband always suggested that I should work. I wanted to stay at home and also do something to earn. Thus, the idea of doing a home business came to my mind.
Little Feet was launched
Thus, I launched my brand Little Feet, which is into making 3D impressions of hands and feet. I started exploring the concept on the Internet, especially YouTube videos. I got the materials and started making impressions of my own hands, my kids and husband for learning and trial purpose. Soon, I became an expert in making 3D impressions and I started taking orders. My Little Feet is growing and I feel happy that my work is appreciated as the hands and feet impressions really look real and beautiful. These impressions last for a lifetime and are good memories to be preserved forever.
My Words of Advice
Today I feel proud that I am on my own and earning. And yes, without my husband's support this would not have been possible. All I like to tell other women like me is that
"to work or to not to work is purely your choice. If you are happy with the "housewife" tag, then remain so. But, don't let others judge you for being a housewife. You have your own capabilities and no one should put you down. Work on your skills and if possible, use your skills in a better way. Money is necessary. And when you earn on your own, there is always a great satisfaction".
