So, here is the story of one incredible and successful young and beautiful girl, who achieved great success as an influencer and entrepreneur.
Establishing a handicraft business at the age of 18 with zero initial investment, which has now reached to a big platform, has earned her name much honor.
They say, If you are young adding to which you’re a woman, ‘entrepreneurship’ shouldn’t even be considered as an option you can look forward to. The ones who go against the grain face logic troubles in their way. As a woman and an entrepreneur myself, I can comprehend the situations well in facing the perturbing attitude that society holds against such personalities.
Saloni Mittal spoke of her life before appearing as an entrepreneur, saying, “I’ve always been a creative person while having keen interests in sports as well, in my school days I was a state skating champion. Having to be blessed, being born in a business class family, a pampered childhood was an obvious thing, till I entered my hostel life.”
Saloni speaks of her early college life as, “Hostel life was a hard time, till I discovered ways of keeping myself occupied with what makes me happy. With hard time, I mean things were troublesome as my projects were stolen. In the stream of fine art, our days were booked with projects and sheets to be submitted in a limited period of time. Out of jealousy or what, in the beginning, there was barely a single person I could trust as ‘friend’. The worse was when I started to develop severe signs of depression in the year, being so disappointed with a normal routine, just like any other girl who sat back on their hostel bed, crammed theories, scored well, and aims at having a decent job. My thought process was different, and I very well knew my potential, and abilities are getting blocked by the hostel walls. My aspirations weren’t meant to be constrained by what most people are doing, but there was a point when they were. Standing in and moulding myself was never a problem, but more than anything else I honor my uniqueness, so, I chose to be different, and stand out of the box instead. I don’t compromise on my personality.”
I use to visit a nearby village to help people. In my opinion, if God has graced you with wealth and knowledge or in any other way, you should help those who are in need.
Being desirous of knowledge, learning something new came hand in hand with every day’s sunrise. However, pedagogy feels relevant only when I get to know its logic, and anything without a logical ground becomes too heavy for me to digest.” Says Saloni Mittal
Saloni says, “It’s not that, I always planned to start Surprisesworld, but, I always knew working under someone else isn’t my cup of tea. My Sister encouraged me to give my creativity a professional ground. More than anything else, it makes.
Saloni told “I made an Instagram page with the username ‘Surprisesworld’ on November 4 ,2016.posting a few pictures of my previously made craft items. It only had 8 followers at that point of time, but I got 2-3 orders as the month had Valentines Week coming. Now, I have huge number of customer support .
Saloni Mittal is the proud owner of a gifting company, Surprisesworld that she set up in 2016 at the age of 18 with Zero investment. And today, she has come a long way in not just establishing a successful business, but has also given back to society to the best of her ability.
She admits that her work life is so hectic that she starts her day at 7am and works non-stop for up to 18 hours straight. So, ‘me-time’ is still something she fancies and dreams to have someday. But right now, she only wants to be able to inspire people around her and support those who have dreams in their eyes but face some hurdles in making big in life.
When asked about her role model, Saloni said, “I am my own role model, and it takes some real hard efforts to compete with your own self in the search of betterment. Maybe someday, I will be the next Ambani, but till then I don’t mind being sleep deprived. I don’t plan to move out to inhabit a big town; I aspire to make my own town a metropolitan. And I believe in backing my words with actions. My Father has always fought the world for me, and he is my strength.”
After that she started modelling . Modelling is something that came naturally to her. Even though When she finally debuted as a professional model, Saloni took the industry by storm. Her natural beauty, both in body and mind shone through and has always kept pushing her forward. Even today, she claims it to be the reason for her constant growth both as a person and as a self-made successful woman.
During the lockdown, instead of picking up any unhealthy habits, Saloni decided to instead utilise her free time by taking to social media. It provided to be a very good way to expand her audience as well as helping her story encourage many young girls, something Saloni is very passionate about. She gain millions followers on social media in very less time. But Unfortunately, she faced a major medical scare in between and found half of her body and face paralysed. Doctors advised her to give up hope, but once again Saloni didn’t let others tell her what she could and couldn’t do. Slowly, she healed and once again returned to her work and her fans with full enthusiasm.
