MY very own Journey......ALL IN ONE

posted 10 Mar 2017, 07:48 by JAIN MONISHA ANANDRAJ
Till now you all got an little excerpts from my 5-6 month journey.
BUT, today I'm going to proudly narrate my learning experience from the small joys to big failures. 

It all started out when we presented our Business Proposal for Pine-o-Chio, on the 22nd of October 2016. 
This is going to be a long post as i will take this opportunity to share all the things i haven't been able to. This little feelings which cannot be expressed until now. 

Firstly, Words can't describe how happy I am to be able to successfully lead with my team to this stage. The euphoria and relief is priceless. 
There have been numerous sleepless nights and even if I did sleep at 2-3am, the thing to wake up to a bad news or disappointment was torturous. There were a lot of things I had to deal with, like, coping up with the stress along with my team, always having the be positive and never give up spirit and motivate my team members even if i'm on the low side, manage my time effectively and work out ways we all can smoothly run this business (almost there).We won over a lot of trial and turbulences to get to where I am today.

Scrolling through from the first team post to the most recent one, it brought back a sense of nostalgia and gratefulness. Some of the small yet major for me events were as follows:
1) When I had the right and capability to endorse a business (it was a huge moment for me)

2) I created our own Instagram Account and followed and followed up with all customers here. 

3) One of the first ready orders I took a picture of with my DSLR.

4) When we decided the add-ons, I went and bought the perfect sized one along with around 40 scraped wooden pieces all at once, which I had gone back and forth for 4-5 days every morning at the Paya Lebar industrial estate.

5) First set of 17 orders stuck and ready to be scrubbed !!!

6) U-Flea and MAAD

7) Comments and Suggestions through our customers..


8) Completed first batch of orders and review.

9) Signed an official agreement and put a step into the zone of Social Entrepreneurship.


I am proud to say I can now call myself an entrepreneur. But nevertheless, there is still much to learn and I won't stop.
I would like to thank everyone that have helped us during our hard times and everyone who have contributed. Without you, Pine-o-Chio will never be what it is and I will never be who I am today. Thank you so much.

Till Next Time,
