Anyone, especially a woman, who’s made it big without a fancy, educational degree.
I started my career as a copywriter in advertising. After 6-7 years, I gave that up to pursue my artistic streak … and spent the next couple of years exploring ceramic hand painting and baking a variety of ceramic products.
Then along came, my daughter and poof!, overnight I became a full time mommy. A couple of years later my son was born. By the time he turned two, I just knew I had to get out there and do something m-o-r-e! Better still, I knew what I had to do!
Comfeed Nursing Pillow was born in 2007 as a result of my personal battle with breastfeeding. Not being the quintessential ‘businesswoman’, it was tough. There was lots to learn but thankfully, there was also tons of family support. So what started as a small venture soon gained popularity and momentum by word of mouth and by encouragement from gynaecologists, paediatricians, prenatal consultants etc.
Realising that there was very little focus on the pregnant woman and her comfort and support, I launched PILLOW TALK, a venture focused on designing and developing products aimed at making the 9 months journey and its immediate post-delivery period more comfortable and easy. Thus were born, Comfeed Pregnancy Pillow and Wedge Pillow soon after.
Needless to say, there’s no looking back now and lots more in the pipeline to watch out for!
