This book is in Self-Help + Romance genre, which makes it relatable to the youth. The book also deals with topics like start-ups, early marriages, and depression. Her work in the book grabbed attention and ultimately lead to many great opportunities. She is currently writing her 2nd book, which will be published in 2020.

‘9-5 can be stressful but not when you do what you love’ – Sanskriti

Business Woman:

Soon after her book, she released a blog which later turned into a women empowerment Community called – Slay Strong. Recently, Slay Strong walked into content writing services and is running successfully.

Slay Strong is diversifying into women formals and is about to launch a clothing line called ‘Basically’.

The most special part of the clothing line is that all the clothes on the site are stitched by the women tailors of India. So, when you buy something it not only empowers you (by being affordable and comfortable) but also those women.

Formals and Basics allow you to be yourself and be able to express your personality loud and clear.

Our Unique Selling Points (USP) are:

  1. Comfort: Yes, for the most extended times, women’s clothing has been pretty and pretty uncomfortable. We are keeping in mind that our customers are girlbosses who are working hard for their careers, on their dreams and need a stylish yet super comfortable work/formal outfit. Most women spend 8-9 hours working and more than an hour traveling, we are making sure that their clothes are the last thing they need to worry about.
  2. Affordability: While you are hustling to make your dreams come true, your clothes should not burn a hole in your pockets. Most formals in the market are crazy expensive, and hence we decided to bring in the BETTER quality yet at affordable prices.
  3. Women Run Company: Yes, from the CEO till the receptionist, this is an all women-run company. We approached talented and skilled women tailors across the country to stitch our clothes. These also include women who are not allowed to go out and work (or are for some reasons unable to). It provides them a livelihood, and it gives us the most exceptionally stitched comfort work wears.

Every piece of clothing not only empowers the woman purchasing but also the woman who stitched it.

College Dropout:

Due to family problems and a mental breakdown, Sanskriti had to drop out of her college. However, this fact has never stopped her from dreaming big and achieving them. She believes strongly in education and learning throughout an individual’s life. She did her high school from Mysore and joined a college for Business Management but had to drop out.

Related Interview:

You can have a degree and still be uneducated. Knowing that she couldn’t finish college only inspired her to learn something important every day. Before being a writer, she is a reader and all that she has learned about writing, business, money and so has been through books and well, internet!

What’s next for Sanskriti Mishra?

She is successfully running her business, hustling hard to make it big.

She is writing her 2nd book on Entrepreneurial journey to inspire the youth of coming generations to ‘go for it’.

She is acing with time-management skills to balance between her 9 – 5 and her business.
