Q1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this business/ entrepreneurship?

I have been passionate about makeup since a long time. I never liked doing much on myself but I always liked decking other people up. But I was working since I was 21 and was doing pretty well in my career and quitting that was a very tough call. Everytime I decided I should start doing something for myself I would be held back with my very peaceful and relying job. It was a risk to leave my job and start something am very new which I didn't have much knowledge about other than very basic stuff. 

At 28 after I had a son I just decided to start something which I love. Knowing it’s a huge risk to leave my job, relocate back to Mumbai, leaving my husband and starting from scratch was a big challenge but equally exciting. And thus began my journey!

Q2. Kindly share some information about your Business, products and services here.

From brides to photo shoots, fashion I do all kinds of makeup and hair but I am more inclined towards bridal makeup, I also conduct Classes for students who are interested to start their own career in this line. I have also had the opportunity to work with one of Kerala’s actor which was a huge push to my career. I have had brides in Mumbai, Gujarat, Kerala etc. have also done brides internationally.

Q3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing business?

God has been very kind to me, I haven’t faced much struggle. It was a very smooth run for me, my initial year as an independent Makeup artist was quite a hit and I was very much occupied during the wedding season. But I have given 200% of each bride, I haven’t slept nights before a wedding thinking of each look. I just don’t believe in makeup but I believe a bride will look beautiful if the entire look is curated perfectly.

Q4. Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties in your business?

Till this lockdown happened everything was going pretty good with my weddings and Classes going hand in hand. But now with lockdown all over and Mumbai been affected worse there isn't much action happening down here.

Q5. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period?

Initially I thought this would be over soon. But soon the realisation hit in that this is going to be with us for sometime. Now I have started putting up some informative videos and tutorials for my followers to share some knowledge and also that I keep my page live and not let it disappear as ours is a very competitive market. It is very easy to go lost in this crowd.

Q6. What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for next five years?

I want to become the best in business! Want people to appreciate me and my work. I want people to know Priyanka John without much introduction. I am very confident in the next 5 years with gods grace I will reach where I want too! 

Q7. How would you advice/suggest new entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain in business?

Be confident,  trust your dreams and work very hard. Don’t give up on yourself by looking at others or thinking the journey is difficult.

It may take time, every journey is different but with time and dedication no one can stop you from achieving success
