Inspiring Women 2019

By Sanaa Sachdev

Some of the most successful businesses are run by women who’ve worked hard to pursue their goals and witness their dreams come true.

 

However, it’s not the person’s gender, but a great idea, dedication, optimism and perseverance that can differentiate a successful business model from a struggling one.
