Featured here is one of Swati Das’s outstanding work.

How did you decide to start your entrepreneurial journey

Until 3 years ago I was just another corporate employee doing a regular 9 to 5 job. However I always wanted to have a startup of my own and be my own boss. Since I was 13 years old, I loved makeup. I could spend hours in the drug store browsing the aisles of colors and products. I would endlessly watch makeup tutorials and practice the same on myself. On several occasions I received compliments and few people thought that I was a professional makeup artist.
All this while, my entrepreneurial spirit was itching to break out. So, with a mix of drive, determination, and a little bit of nerve, I decided to give up my well paid corporate job and follow my dream…..and that was the origin of HEAD TURNER MAKEOVERS.

 

Since childhood I have been very fearless and passionate towards my dreams. My immense love for my work and hope for success has kept me progressive in life.

 

What are the key challenges you face in your job?

The last 3 years have been full of learning and experience for me. Nothing happens overnight, its blood, sweat, and tears. Beyond talent and skill, passion is the one quality that carried me through the rough patches as a freelance artist in a rather tough industry. Beauty industry being highly competitive, one needs to be constantly aligned to and vigilant of the ever changing trends in the fashion world. The industry is also very seasonal and hence it is impertinent that one keeps upgrading ones knowledge as per the market requirement.

What keeps you going?

Interest and hope are the two things that has kept me going in life. Since childhood, I have been very fearless and passionate towards my dreams. My immense love for my work and hope for success and has kept me progressive in life. My strong ability to endure against all odds has helped me realize my dreams in life.

 

 

What is one advice you have for anyone else wanting to start something on their own?

Hard work, conviction in one’s belief and can-do attitude can help you tide over any challenge in life. Single minded focus is imperative to making one’s dreams a reality. I would finally like to sign off with my favorite quote:

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” — Albert Schweitzer
