Almost a year and a half back, I was thinking to restart second innings in my career. And I was also grieving for my father’s sudden death. I couldnt think of a full time work as my younger one was only a year old. I always believed the mother has to be with the kid during formative years. That’s why i took a break from my full-time job as a CivilEngineer from a reputed real estate company in Bangalore when i was expecting my elder one. The only solution was to find a job which allows me “Work from home”.I spoke to many of my friends, wellwishers, family members, ex-colleagues and found out there is no such job which allows to work from home. But i continued my search.One day i saw a post in one of the prominent Facebook group that one woman was looking for a content writing kind of a job for school workbooks. I met her,we had a conversation, i found everything was perfect. She fixed a decent amount as my salary.I was really excited. Training and work were going hand in hand. Exactly after amonth ,something didnt work and due to her personal issues she moved from Bangalore and i stopped working with her. I was kind of depressed.After this failed attempt i was a bit careful while choosing work from home opportunities but again i couldn’t continue with one more institiuion as their work culture didn’t suit me.
My search was on ….One of those days i saw a post in one of Bangalore’s famous mom’s group about Ruchita Srivastava enquiring for a work from home intern for her digital marketing agency. Like Many women who messaged in the post i too messaged her in the messenger. We had a brief call and from the next day itself she told me to start working,I was clueless and i told her i don’t have any experience in Digital marketing.She assured me she will guide me behind but i will be the front face of the brand. I was bit hesitant as i never i worked like this. Both Ruchita and Anshika helped me to understand every
single word related to Social media marketing. I used to ask silly doubts too.That was the beginning of my second innings.
Never looked back. Never thought am I in the right place. Both Anshika and Ruchita never made me felt like that. I always felt how can someone give training without meeting us and without seeing us. But these two superwomen are doing that. Most of our discussions happen in our WhatsApp groups.We respect each other’s time. health, familyand most importantly kids. That’s the reason we are here. Financially I may not be earning equally like many full time working women. But I am with my kids when they need me the most and same time I am using my time effectively and productively. And most importantly, I am happy.
Thanks to these two superwomen who helped me to build my confidence, unleash my capabilities and correct me step by step. For me Virtual world is not virtual ,its real.We met our entire team and,clients virtually. We put our 100%efforts to give the best to our clients.Their feedbacks are the real yardsticks to our hardwork.I really thank Almighty ,my parents, husband, in-laws and kids being part of my beautiful journey in my second innings.
Believe me We girls are going to create a lot of magic in Social Media Marketing.Stay tuned with us.
