Mrs.Divya says she has always been a quick learner. She assimilated, observed and associated all that she learnt to different aspects of her life, which made her stand at the pinnacle of her career. The story of rags to riches of Mrs.Veena Kumaravel-her mentor, had inspired her to never give up and always look for solutions for problems arising in life. Her greatest risk was establishing Sano. Building a team was not easy; it took a lot of patience, care and persistent effort to make her team stand where they are today. She almost gave up when she lost her previous Business (franchise) at the age of 22 for no mistake of hers, but it was her mentor, family and friends who pushed her to start this company. She started it with zero employees and clientele. She was the only employee of her company for the first six months. Every time she faced a struggle she questioned herself – ‘do you want to become a diamond which exceptionally went through stress or you want to become a graphite’. Financially it was a strain, which affected her personal life as well. But she endured it and here she stands now. After a year she has 7 employees under her, three branches in Chennai, one branch in Bangalore with added association & tie ups with many sport academies and product development companies. She tasted success as she always believed in herself and her capabilities. She took criticism and kept improving upon it. The many challenges she faced during her journey include hiring Employees, firing a few, opening more branches, co-coordinating the team, making them work as a unit, balancing personal life & career and finally getting time for herself.
As her employees are the ears and face of her company she ensures that every employee’s individuality is preserved because that is their USP. She makes sure that they work according to their strengths, helps them understand why mistakes happen, finds the solution for it and thinks about how it can avoided the next time. Together they pool their collective interests to grow a multi-faceted company.
‘A family is the most important background for any person, be it an entrepreneur or otherwise’-says Mrs.Divya. Her parents, husband, in-laws, brother were all by her side, supporting her decisions and choices in life. She was never stopped or asked to be the “dutiful” daughter in law. Her career was always considered important and she kept gaining more respect as the time passed.
She says follow your dreams, never focus on problems and instead focus on the solutions. The solution is what encourages the feeling of happiness in your body. The solution is what brings light to your life. Whatever you choose to do give your 200% and never find reasons for not pursuing your dreams.
