Why did u choose work from home career?

After finishing UG, I felt bored at home. I started selling my creations through Ebay. Slowly it turned as my career and created an identity for me.

Earning depends upon the buyers requirment as my products go on with any occasion and season. Approximately I earn Rs.6000 to Rs.10,000 per month from this work from home business.

All crochet products like pouch, key chain, handbags, flowers, blankets. I also sew cute fabric bags, pouches,kids and baby frocks, fabric flowers, cushion and quilling blankets. I make handmade jewelleries also. I make customized things also as per requirements from customers.

Tell us about your important turning point in your business:

My important turning point was when other crafters started referring me for their crochet embellishments.

Tell us about the difficult times you have faced and how did u manage to recover:

Completing work on time is the only difficulty thing for me. Since crochet takes a lots of time to make, I have to work day and night when I get order in large quantity. Sometimes I need to request more time from customers.

What are the difficulties you face in working from home career? 

Since I am staying in a small area, getting right materials are not easy. So I prefer to buy from online stores. Some of my friends also help me in buying things and sending them to me.
