This woman entrepreneur’s amazing startup story will help you overcome the toughest of challenges in life

1

“I am a big believer in taking chances. I always wanted to experience a different region/market especially while doing my MBA.” – Richi Sood, Founder, Richcharms


H
ow it all began?

I think it is part of our generation’s DNA to explore the world. Being born into an entrepreneurial family made it natural for me to seek this path, but it also made me quite aware of how bumpy the road may be at some points. So it definitely helped me adjust my expectations and realize that I have to be resilient.

In every success story, you will find someone who has made a courageous decision. 

The beginning of something special:

Every multinational company was once a start-up. Every redwood tree was once a sapling and every professional was once a beginner. I am young, curious for knowledge and willing to take the risk of starting a trend than to follow one. I always wanted to meet new people in my life with my own visiting card representing a company’s CEO. Richcharms is a fashion website where we retail Indian Jewellery.


The First Signs:

During my travels, I used to pick up stuff from various places, and my friends would ask where I got them from. That’s when I realized people were willing to buy different types of Jewellery, but didn’t know where to buy them from. That’s how I thought of this.


I Started with Rs 5000 –
Richi

Initial investment? There was no such investment I put in but I still boot-strapped my business with my savings of Rs. 5000. After my MBA, I was uncomfortable in my 9-5 bank job. I thought to switch it and looked for better opportunities. I joined my father’s stock broking business, but then I realized I am not made for cubicle job system and the only way for me is to start my own venture and become my own boss. Belonging from a middle class family, and a small town with less resource, it’s a risky deal to startup so early that too being a girl. But to make a mark, we have to start from somewhere.

What clicked for “Richcharms”?

Richcharms
is attracting enough customers even when I don’t have a working website. All I’m selling the products are through a super active Instagram Page and Facebook Page. Instagram page has good following and quick response time as well. This online store only keeps apparels, accessories for the young girls. So, the target market is niche, but demanding at the same time.

Managing competition in an unique way:
Competition in this sector is a big risk, as there are thousands of competitors eyeing your customers and profits too.

 Challenges I face:

  – Doing Business Development becomes tough sometimes as the vendors are not easily available and are not accustomed to this business.

– A start-up needs almost 3 years, to sustain the brand and the entrepreneur herself.

– Lot of female competitors, also its difficult for a lady to handle tricky client sometimes, but things get managed by the confidence.

As a Women entrepreneur, I feel liberated, economically independent and at the same time struggling to tackle family pressure and handling a new business. One year has passed and though I have achieved more than I thought, but it’s a long way to go to create a big dent.

Why Physical Intimacy Has An Edge Over Sex?

Written By Sameeksha Aggarwal

Introduction

Human psychology is one of the most intricate psychologies of the world. Every one of us needs companionship of a good soul at some point of time. Generally, strong physical intimacy includes holding hands together for hours, hugging each or sitting close to each other etc. Stability of emotions is cardinal to live a life of elation. It only comes from physical intimacy with our beloved ones. On the other hand, sex is just a physical involvement of two people for fulfillment of their biological needs.

Why Physical Intimation Is A Broader Concept?               

Physical intimation has a broad spectrum while sex does not have that. Each one of us needs someone with whom we can pour our heart out and be honest with our every single emotion. This person can be anyone in this world but when it comes to sex, it is not the same. Physical intimacy starts from infancy and remains until the last stage of our life. Somehow, it has the power to pull us from the phase of darkness and bring us into the light of enlightenment.

Physical intimacy is the foundation of the sex. Though there are, one night stands but that too occur due to dilemma of emotions. Emotional stability is key component to have a balance life. No one knows that how profound is the effect of hug at time of dejection.  An assurance that everything will be fine is sometimes very important no matter how bad the situation is. Sex is just a moment, while physical intimation is a phase that always stays with us in form of memories.

Conclusion

In a nutshell, physical intimacy is the heart of every relationship and there is nothing, which could replace it. Sex is momentary happiness and is short lived too. Thus, physical intimacy gives us strength at time of need and makes us strong with every hard situation. Emotional fitness comes from knowing someone deeply, honestly, and with continuous exchange of optimistic energies.

Social Media Won’t Spoil Everything. The New Generation will survive it

Written By Indus Content Team

Social media has been the crowning jewel of the 21st century. The first recognizable social media site Six Degrees was launched in the year 1997. Nowadays, Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter are the officers in command in the world of social media. Social media has been a prominent part of the lives of today’s youth. Social media is no longer just a place for socializing or chatting. Because of social media, two people who used to chat together are now together or better even married and starting their own family. I think we can hardly find a youth of today’s generation who doesn’t have a Facebook or Twitter account.

While many argue that it’s becoming detrimental to the growth of the young minds of the young generation, I personally think that if used properly it would turn out to be only a boon for all the people using it all cross the world.

1. Educational Help – Parents are of the view that if their children use social media it will hamper their studies and they will soon lose their focus and consequently be getting poor grades. But, today’s generation is much smarter than that. WhatsApp or Facebook groups are created to spread various important messages, regarding the class activities. So one doesn’t have to dial up everyone and inform them over the phone one by one. When you are stuck with a problem, just post the question in the group containing your friend’s circle and within minutes you will be getting the solution or at least the views about that particular problem.

According to a report made in recent years, about 59% of the youth of this world use social media for the purpose of studying

2. Spreading Awareness – Nowadays most of the people get informed about what’s going on around the world through social media. According to a report, about 27.7% of the people in US get information about then happenings in the world through social media. News gets dispersed must faster once it gets into social platforms. The youth of the world no longer has to wait for arrival of the next day’s newspaper to get up to date with the world. Instead, what they do is just see the various Facebook pages and are informed immediately about the recent happenings by someone whom they don’t even know.

3. Social Benefits – About 88% of the people in this world get to keep in touch with their family and other loved ones through social media. Also about 57% of today’s teenagers have made friends through it and 52% of the teens have improved their bond of friendship by using social media. In today’s hectic world, it’s almost next to impossible to get in touch with each and every member of your family through telephone and so social media has only helped them in this cause.

4. Increasing Job Opportunities – Social media has been successful laying quite a strong platform for the young people who are in search of jobs. Most of the people get informed about the various job prospects that are looming over their heads and the companies to get to advertise their need of more employees through social media.

Thus, it can be said that social media is immensely beneficial for not only the youth of today’s world but for everyone one why wants to stay connected with this world. But even social media has its various cons. But we all know that nothing or no one is perfect in this world. But if we use social media only to our own advantage; it will be a powerful weapon which can be our beacon of progression and success in the near future. And who better to do this than the youth of today’s world.

 

5 Things That Will 100% DESTROY Your LOVE LIFE

Written by Indus Content Team

If you are in a committed relationship, there are various things which you need to keep in mind. Relationships are not just about having each other’s company when you need them, but you also need to care about your partner if you wish your relationship to last. A relationship is a budding tree, no matter how old it is. You need to nurture it, cater it and of course love it.

A relationship provides you the necessary happiness and will make you a better person if you have chosen to stay with the right person. So, there are certain things which you should be avoiding when you are in a committed relationship. Following are the ten things that will definitely be killing your relationship if think that a relationship is a game.

1.Saying ‘No’ – It might be not be a very big or serious thing to ponder over, but, if the all the ‘no’s keep getting added up, soon you will be facing a serious crisis in your relationship, which might after sometime be the cause of your breakup. Relationships are very subtle, even when they are ten years old, just like a piece of glass. If you try to hold it tight, it might break and again if you try to hold it too softly, it might slip out of your hand and break.

2. Long Fights – I don’t believe that fights are bad. I mean that there are no relationships where the couples don’t fight with each other. After each and every fight that relationship only gets stronger and stronger. But long and frequent fights are not at all a good sign. if you wish to be a part of a long term or rather an everlasting relationship. These sticky fights can seriously kill your relationship sooner than you know.

3. Being Alone After A Fight– The brightest day can soon turn out to be the dullest day of your life, if you had a serious fight with your partner and there’s no one to console you. You start feeling lonely and find no happiness around you or even start to judge your partner and the relationship which you are having with him or her. Both of you go separate ways and start to lick your wounds and soon realise that the one who should have been the cause of your happiness has now become the cause of your sorrow and loneliness.

4. Being Untruthful– Keeping secrets and not trusting your partner is a matter of major concern if you are in a relationship. It will definitely hinder the growth of your relationship and that growing distrust among you will soon be the cause of your breakup.

5. Cheating On Your Partner– This might be the most heinous crime that you can perform if you are in a serious relationship. So, if you are caught kissing or even worse caught making out or fornicating, that will be the end, there and then. Never even think about it. And if you are cheating on your girlfriend or boyfriend right now, tell it to your partner and end it. At least she will know the truth. No point being in the relationship anymore.

Warning! You Are Slowly Killing Yourself By Doing These 5 Things

Written By Pathikrit Banerjee

Life is the biggest reality show on this planet, everything is so unexpected. There are challenges everywhere; each incident brings out a different side of our personality. Some things hurt us deeply, yet we can’t change anything about them. From the atmosphere inside our workplace to the relationships we are in, imperfection is present everywhere. We do so many things for the people we love, but it doesn’t always come back. This creates depression and we can feel our self-confidence becoming lesser and lesser. You deserve some love too. If the people around you are not giving it to you, it is time for you take up the responsibility. Your journey matters, your emotions matter, “You” matter.

1. Feeding the negative thoughts: Negativity is present all around us, it is very easy to let it inside our brain. Social media promotes perfection; we constantly keep comparing our life with others. Acceptance is the key here; it bridges the gap between expectation and reality. It is not a quick process, acceptance comes slowly. But once it arrives, the confusion is cleared. You have integrity, always value that. Your struggles can’t go to waste; keep marching on the path you have chosen for yourself.

2. Next Addiction: This is a strange addiction in which your mind tells you to search for better things. From a better job to a better relationship, next addiction will never let you settle. Be happy with the things you have right now and try to fix the weak areas.

3.Trying to please everyone: People are different, you must accept this quickly. They have different agendas and your job is not to fulfill that. You have limits, never cross those boundaries to please someone. People should see your weaknesses and learn to accept you.

4. Overthinking: Nothing kills your happiness faster than overthinking. It is a toxic thing; you need to remove from your system. It never solved any problems; it always exerted extra pressure on your mind. Keep yourself occupied with various things, there should be no room for negative thoughts inside your mind. Break the imaginary cages and free your spirit, good vibes are precious.

5. Holding on to the past: We all have made mistakes in life, it is natural. Everyone wants to press the “undo” button at least once, but life gives us only one shot. Instead of thinking about the mistakes, we should try to learn from them. This is the only way; we can make the future better. Remembering those troubled memories only brings us pain, it keeps us captive. The past can never hurt us, if we don’t let it.
