An optimistic mindset will always take us to great heights in our life. The contribution of women in our society is phenomenal and in recent times they have emerged breaking the conventions, as entrepreneurs, business leaders, national leaders, and much more.
They have proved that women are capable of succeeding independently without relying on others. Ms.Ezhil Thamaraiselvan is one such inspiration to all aspiring women entrepreneurs. She runs Viraja Fashionista, an online store for women’s clothing, named after her beloved daughter, Viraja.
How did it all get started?
“The best version of yourself comes out during the most difficult times of your life”.This saying is very much relatable to Ms. Ezhil. Being a single mother, she started Viraja Fashionista(3rd September,2016) to generate an additional income to finance her family’s needs. She was bold to start this business all by herself with a very minimal investment of Rs.5000.By doing so, she has proven that everyone can get into the journey of entrepreneurship irrespective of their background and get started without a bulk investment.
Extensive support from the family
As we all know sometimes our family members turn out to be our best friends. Ms.Ezhil is currently staying with her Mother, Mrs.Manvizhi(Father Mr.Thamaraiselvan expired on 2015)and her two brothers Mr.Kumanan and Mr.Valavan.The contribution and support she received from her family are highly remarkable as they always motivated her to rise higher in life. They also helped her whenever she needed their help in the business as well. She says that it would not be possible to run the business successfully without the support from her family members and wishes to dedicate her success to them.
The smart choice
Choosing the right business domain is very important for any entrepreneur to be successful and Ms.Ezhil understood this very clearly and made a thorough analysis before diving into the business right away.
She found out eCommerce was booming and had a great scope in the future and hence decided to set up an online store exclusively for women’s clothing.(Launched on February 9,2017)
Her prediction and business analysis were right as they have now emerged successful in generating monthly sales of more than 4 lakhs.
