Truly great stories!
Posted on March 10 2016
I didn't want to write this on Women's Day as it would have looked like a part of a campaign, and I'm not entirely sure if you have read the stories of some truly inspiring women we put up on Smytten Reads
Without a doubt, we feel privileged to have a chance to work with these inspiring women entrepreneurs and when we say we are #SmyttenByHer
, we truly mean it. Being an entrepreneur is tough. I am sure you have read a lot of hardship stories of many successful entrepreneurs and their resilience. Sitting on a cushy high paying corporate job, I always used to think what could it be that kept these people so motivated and determined in such tough times. Admittedly, it must have been different for every individual - but for me, one of the biggest motivating factors has been the privilege to meet these amazing people pursuing their dreams and building products & brands from ground zero. Every time I have a coffee cup conversation with them or a phone call discussing some interesting ideas around our partnerships, I feel refreshed and re-energized. The passion they bring to business, the clarity they have and the finesse with which they deal with the problems is really admirable.
