In a conversation with Akanksha, “ I’m 25, A Women Entrepreneur and very much inspired by the middle-class Baniya Families and that’s okay, says Akanksha Chandok.”
“I want every little girl who’s been told she’s bossy to be told again she has leadership skills.”
In an interview with Akanksha she said, Coming from a non-business background, Punjabi family, lifting herself from millennial jobs wasn’t that easy. Facing sexual harassment at the workplace along with not being excited enough about her work at her job was a trigger that made her discover the best time to quit her job and start her own legacy.
Call it everyday encouragement from her friends and family. She was supported by each and every person present in her life to be by her side through thick and thin and believe in her no matter how dark the times were in the past.
Hooting with laughter she says, a major inspiration of her encouragement came from the middle-class baniya families, “I am an admirer of this community that consistently produces India’s only world-class industrialists call it Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal, Founders at Flipkart. Their tight control over numbers is the reason that “meri companion mein lambi-Chaudi gadbad nahi hui (this is why there’s been no major trouble in my company).”
They have an acute sense of analyzing the market gaps. That’s the reason why they are the biggest lenders in the land. The culture of debt, credit, and flexibility with interest rates is their stronghold. This is the reason why you will see the majority of Baniyas in the money-making and investing business.
I learned the technique of smelling money from these business-minded people who never miss out on opportunities to make money. I involved myself 24X7 with business. I developed a nose for a profit-making venture and single-mindedly focused on my business almost at the cost of not having a social life with my close ones and still being supported by them.
Besides the above facts she says, commitment honoring is another quality I came to inherit with my time networking with people outside of different nationalities. I always strive to deliver products or services in a committed time frame. Commitment is something I practice in my personal and professional life that makes me stand out from the crowd.
