Success Stories:
Her Story Her Way

I am a graduate in Finance from Sukhdev College of Business Studies. I started HareePatti with aim to save Investors from the mis-selling that happens in this trade do and make those investors wealthy and wise. It is a financial consultancy firm providing financial advisory services & distributing financial products.  

What led to inception of Hareepatti?
I am into profession of helping people manage their Finances by default. My father started off this venture in 1985 and in 2005 due to his untimely demise, the onus was on me to carry forward the legacy at the age of 21.  

How did you get the idea of starting your own company?
Initially I stepped into the business to maintain and retain my family’s goodwill but at a later stage realize the need of right financial advice is what is not easily available to the masses. It became a passion and today after 11 years , I feel happy when I look back.  

What all challenges did you face while creating Hareepatti?
Being an entrepreneur is tough. You are always on your toes and I absolutely love that feeling. It’s true that you are your own boss however at the same time you will find yourself working in all segments of the company in absence of even one team member. You have to be ready for new challenges and experience at all the times. Being a women and entrepreneur at the same time demands lot of hard work, lot of multitasking and lot of patience.  

According to you, what are the top three essential skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur?
- Believe in yourself and your gut, the world will believe in you.
- Be Patient, the best things in life will come unexpectedly and the best is yet to come.
- Art of Execution and Delegation and building the right team.  

What are your views and opinions towards the ambiguous need to promote women entrepreneurship and women empowerment in India?
Women entrepreneurs form almost 1/3rd of all entrepreneurs worldwide. They are almost in all possible sectors. Without any offence, I personally feel, what men can do, women can do it better.
