With a lot of passion and dedication, we have a story today of Tanya Mittal founder of HandMadeLove. She is incredible and successful young and beautiful girl, who achieved great success as an entrepreneur.
She began her entrepreneurial journey at the age of 20 and made herself a self-made millionaire in a year with zero initial investment starting from Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, India.
Tanya believes that the challenges are not struggles rather they define the right path for us. It was during my college days that made me what I am today. I went to school and worked at the same time offline and sometimes online for youtube-to-mp3-converter.org. I never liked my college and the environment I was in and I even had a hard time in completing my architecture course as my sheets were stolen from time to time. I couldn’t trust anyone as a friend. The worse was when I started to develop severe signs of depression in the third year, being so disappointed with a normal routine, just check who sat back on their hostel bed, crammed theories, scored well, and aims at having a decent job. My idea about life was quite different, I just couldn’t be satisfied and constrained by what most people were doing in life. I always wanted more out of me and I always believed in me and doing great. I consider self as a challenge and try to be better than the previous Tanya Mittal with more helpful hints.
Tanya says, I always had a huge inclination towards everything that was handmade, because they have more meaning and purpose to them and with time I realized that I should make my hobby my business but this all also goes to my friend who had convinced me to start this.
