Tell us your bold boss story!:
Hi. I’m Salma and I’m a Business Coach & a Brand Strategist. I help women bloggers and entrepreneurs build a strong online foundation though Profitable & Automated Business that they love. I also help design Engaging & Lead-generating Brands and Websites.
I am from the beautiful town called Coonoor, situated in the Niligiris, India. By qualification, I have a Masters in Biometerics and Cyber Security and by heart & passion I am a crocheter, craft lover, blogger and design enthusiast. I love everything pink and pretty & have an obsession with organizing and keep thing simple and neat.
I used to believe that WEBSITE wasn’t important and was afraid of spending on it, afraid to show myself out there, thinking that I wasn’t capable or knowledgeable enough to share my expertise. All of this negativity inside me, but ONE DREAM OF BECOMING SUCCESSFUL. And without putting myself forward, how was I gonna achieve it?
I have been hiding my talents away and locking them up in a closed 10 feet room to just get faded and engulfed. I wanted to make it BIG, I wanted to be successful and I wanted to be seen. That’s when I started my website and BLOGGING. It initially started with my blog on crafts and DIY. I created a blog for myself, a logo and branding kit. I also created Printable planners and sold them through Etsy. This is how my entrepreneurial journey began.
So I have been successfully blogging for over 3 years and have also been a designer and entrepreneur with my brand ‘Craftadise’ where I sell handmade products. I also started my Design services in 2016 with the web designing and development skills I learned in college + designing skills self-learned to share my knowledge and help other women entrepreneurs and bloggers just like me.
With the help of my blog and website & blog, I received various accolades, few of which include: Young Entrepreneur of the month, May by OpenDesigns, Top 5 Art & Crafts and Home decor blog in India, Women Achiever by ICICI Bank, Featured in various US-based craft/business websites with my Online Presence.
Now I also coach Business Entrepreneurs on how to come forward, turn their dream to a full-fledged Online Business and make a consistent income that they're proud of. I now have a Facebook group with over 300+ passionate, young and rising women entrepreneurs where I share my knowledge and expertise every day and encourage them to come forward and make their own strong foundation online.
