From Homemakers to Wealth Creators
"Millionaire Housewives tells the stories of twelve enterprising homemakers who, in spite of having no prior experience in business, managed to build successful empires through the single-minded pursuit of their goal, defying all stereotypes. If for Savita Chhabra-vice chairperson of Hygienic Research Institute Pvt. Ltd-entrepreneurship happened on account of unfortunate events striking her hitherto secure world, for Ambika Pillai-one of the most well-known names in the world of hair and beauty today-it was the need to be financially independent that led her down this path. For others like Indian celebrity chef Nita Mehta, entrepreneurship was the result of a niggling sense of wanting to do something beyond her traditional role as a homemaker. Amidst their varied motivations and struggles, Millionaire Housewives offers valuable lessons for homemakers who want to venture into entrepreneurship."
