Sanchitha V - CEO of The Creative House-Handmade by Sanchitha
Great Companies: Please tell me something about the business and how did you come up with such an idea?
Sanchitha V: I basically deal with handmade products such as handmade gifts, dream-catchers and everything handmade. As a child, everyone will have access to arts and crafts as an hobby and i retained that hobby even after growing up also. For me, doing art and craft is a stress buster and relieves all my other stress and i do them during free time. I used to gift handmade gifts to my friends and family for their special occasions and my work got spreading in and around my friends and family and got a recognition and that is when i thought of converting it as a business because of getting so much positive reviews. Now, we have customers from all over India.
Great Companies: What are the various services and products provided by your company?
Sanchitha V: We provide handmade products such as dream-catchers, handmade gifts, bookmarks, cake and cupcake toppers and everything handmade.
Great Companies: Why should one choose you over others in this field?
Sanchitha V: Basically, people have their own likes and dislikes in each and every business. I would not say choose me over others. Everyone is unique in their own way. When it comes to handmade, everything is unique and no two handmade products are same.I would not prefer my work to be compared with others. I know that people have various platforms to do business with but, I'm happy when people choose us over that.I would like to thank you them for that.
Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?
Sanchitha V: As a beginner, when i thought of building this business, i had negativities from my friends and family like "How can crafting make you a living?""How can you survive in this field?" And many more. But, i followed what my mind told and didn't worry about others. So, now you see me here. The people who were laughing over me at the beginning also look at me as an inspiration. That is kind of great feeling for me and I'm happy that people accepted that. I would even suggest people a thing "If you cannot encourage, please never discourage"
Great Companies: What do you think are the few main things which are most important for a successful business?
Sanchitha V: Firstly, the way you approach with your client is most important. Talking sweetly with them makes them have trust on us. Even the way you work also attracts people.
