How proud it makes a parent and mentor when they see that the kid they raise or the student they taught is doing something on her own. Fighting all the odds and standing firm on her dreams and doing everything with all her heart to achieve them.
This story is of one hard-working passionate girl who got inspired by people around her and decided to start her own business. 22 years old Shilpa Sundrani from Jabalpur is a BBA graduate, who lives with her small family of her parents and a brother.
When asked Shilpa who as a person she is, she says, “A talkative tiny speck with an itch for tattoos and travel. Music is medicine. Writing is therapy and a good read is my kind of unwinding. As for everything else in between, there is food.”
Like everyone Shilpa also before pursuing BBA had the same plan for doing MBA after her graduation but while working with her friend she was sure that she have to enter the world of Digital Marketing.
Shilpa reminds me of one of her courses mate who also was very enthusiastic about fulfilling her dreams named Khushi Manglani from Indore. Khushi is a back-pain therapist and also works along with her father in his business as well. Khushi is also starting a new India’s biggest Finishing school (VENTURE)called – L.I.P.S. (LIFESTYLE, IMAGE, PERSONALITY &SKILL DEVELOPMENT) + India’s biggest culinary school along with a hostel resort for the students, will be launching next year.
Shilpa says, “I use to work for my friend while doing my graduation he had a business of e-commerce dropshipping store, that’s how my interest developed in it, after completing my graduation I knew that I have to do something in the digital field and now when I see what I am doing I love it. I explore new things daily, I am constantly learning new things”
As soon as Shilpa completed her graduation she searched for a good institution for her Master and she came across Digital Gurukul, Shilpa got a really good review about Digital Gurukul and took admitted for a Master’s in Digital Marketing, “Wanted to enter the digital world fully and digital gurukul was the way to it. So I took admission in digital gurukul and learned a few things while studying at digital gurukul.”
While Shilpa was in the course she developed an interest in Social media management, Email marketing as well, Shilpa thinks Digital Marketing is a field where a person is always learning new things which attracts her even more.
Shilpa started her own eCommerce store in 2021 with the name Lavish Station, she is also working for Himalayan Organics as a Shopify developer as she never wants her learning to be stopped, “I started my own store and generated revenue in millions through FB & IG ads. Currently working at Himalayan Organics as a Shopify developer but now also doing social media management, Email marketing, Facebook and Snapchat ads, marketing campaigns, and a lot more things. Constant learning is what I do.”
She adds, “I want to run my own e-commerce brand and at the same time I also want to teach people about e-commerce, dropshipping, and email marketing. I want them to know how versatile the digital world can get which makes it very interesting.”
Shilpa says she was already sure what she have to do but for that, she needed to brush her skills in the best possible way for which she gives credit to Digital Gurukul and Dr. Raj Padhiyar sir, “There were so many new things that I learned through Digital Gurukul. Raj sir has always been a great mentor, he always welcomes new ideas and guides you through them.”
