Being good at what you do requires diligent work and many hours of your time and sometimes lifetime. Some people love their job and some do it for the love of money! The job hence should not define you as a person; an accountant may be a trapped potter!

Along with this she’s is running and an Online Jewelry Portal! Phew! She definitely is a Wonder Woman!. Her start up journey began in 2011. She started MyFashionVilla.com during her job days when she used to read all international Fashion and Lifestyle blogs every day. She eventually began enjoying those blogs even more. Further she adds, “I used to spend 6+ hours a day reading such blogs and understanding how they produce content, how they collaborate with brands and what is their revenue model”. In due course she started Googling and ended up with the thought to do an experiment! And that's how MyFashionVilla.com took birth (Yes! an experiment!). Whoa!

Hetal shares how she you felt like that she can't do anymore and she also felt like giving up every next day! She also adds, “That's the beauty. You fall down, you learn, you raise yourself up and take the next step! That's me and that helps me keep going!”
It took Hetal around 6 years to build a great and loyal readership for her website and she absolutely loves the feedback she gets and that what makes her work extra hard. She holds a Masters Degree in Computers which helped her stay up to date with the technical aspects of modern day technology. She would read international fashion magazines and blogs for hours and that’s what spiked her curiosity and she started her own fashion and make-up blog. She taught herself the nitty gritties of the blogging business and revenue.
When she just started in 2011, it was homogeneous task as there were initially no brands or PR companies to work with in Ahmedabad and it was extremely challenging to approach the companies and PR in Mumbai & Delhi. The walk for her was not always easy, she too felt like giving in and getting a job but then this made her happy and she knew the long term benefits and she would work with tremendous determination.
Hetal describes how the glamour quotient is changing in Ahmedabad. She feels pride in acknowledging Myfashionvilla.com as the oldest Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle blog from Ahmedabad and how it’s growing day by day.
To all the budding entrepreneurs, it will not be easy, work your way and you will eventually fall in love with the challenges and overcoming all the obstacles. The real zest lies in being able to create something new that benefits the audience. You yourself will be your biggest motivation. Hetal advises to be creative and to come up with your own ideas. Hetal believes in individuality and being oneself. For those wanting to begin their blogging journey from her own experience she suggests not to rush for the numbers and avoid the shortcuts, earn your readership and put in your all efforts!
