Business and motherhood can be looked at as 2 ends of the spectrum called life. One is where the individual gets into a logical and reasoning self, while the other is where she is nurturing, caring, and emotionally connected to her offspring. It is very important to understand that the business needs an emotional touch, and motherhood can succeed only when approached with a pinch of logic, reasoning, and assertiveness.
Our varied experiences, along with the zeal to explore, are what make a person excel in whatever she does. There may be times when we may feel torn between the two. However, both are acts of sustenance, of life and its prerequisites. And the word ‘Excel’ is a subjective term, and we all measure it differently.

On this special occasion of Mother’s Day, I am thrilled to share my journey as a Mom-preneur, gracefully embracing the dual roles of a dedicated mother and Director of HR at Code Fire Technologies Pvt. Ltd. A Balancing entrepreneurship and motherhood has been both challenging and rewarding. It requires determination, adaptability, and a strong support network. Alongside my roles, I founded SchooladmissionIndia.com, simplifying the school admission process for parents and contributing to the education sector. I pay tribute to my family, who inspire me with their milestones and belief in my abilities. Drawing from my experiences, I share tips for aspiring Mom-preneurs: clarify goals, establish priorities, build a reliable support network, delegate tasks, and master time management. Above all, self-care is essential. “Embrace the symphony of motherhood and entrepreneurship, and let your path flow with grace and possibilities.”
Let us celebrate Mother’s Day and cherish the joys of motherhood and entrepreneurship. Together, we can make a positive impact on our personal and professional lives, nurturing a harmonious balance between our roles as successful businesswomen and loving mothers.

Entrepreneurship is the act of starting and running a business. Women, despite facing cultural and societal barriers, have become successful entrepreneurs by combining their womanhood and business acumen. The advent of technology, better education, and available resources has helped women nurture their careers while balancing household responsibilities.
Women entrepreneurs have realized their potential in driving inclusive growth and employment generation, motivating many women in rural and urban settings. Harnessing the economic potential of women has proven to have a cascading effect on health, education, and gender equity. Zainab and Fatima launched Zeefaa, a sustainable clothing brand, to provide livelihoods to craftsmen and tailors across the country. Despite facing challenges, the sisters have emerged as successful businesswomen, homemakers, and role models for women pursuing their dreams. Overall, women have proven themselves to be successful entrepreneurs who excel in both business and motherhood, and their contribution to inclusive growth and employment generation is immeasurable.

Shuchita Gupta is an adventurous person who likes to try out different things and has varied experiences. She’s combining her knowledge and experience to do something close to her heart, i.e. Healthcare. Shuchita Gupta is also a strong corporate leader who has worked as a Consultant CFO with many start-ups, such as E-Enable Technologies, adda52.com, Zupee, and others, with her last assignment as Director of Finance at Moglix. Coming from a corporate background and being willing to do something meaningful was her yearning. So, one day, she left her stable job and co-founded Care4parents.in and Eazyhealth.in along with Dr. Aman Khera.
As per Suchita, “Women should not be afraid of experimenting or taking risks or afraid of failure. We are born multi-tasking people… Not only can we manage house and work responsibilities effectively, but we also bring a certain creativity and personal touch to everything we do. My family has been very supportive and has guided me all along.”
