Get Your Pooch Onboard With Collar Folk When Planning A Getaway
“I have always been an animal lover. When I did reach a point where I wanted to pursue my passion, this field was a very natural choice. CollarFolk is the perfect expression, given my education, experience and passion. I am lucky to have a very supportive family and group of friends. Since my father himself is an entrepreneur, he was overjoyed when I broke the news. India has a large number of pet lovers and with increasing humanization of pets, this space is evolving. But there aren't many good quality products and credible information available for this audience. CollarFolk is a lifestyle brand for pet lovers. From the coolest pet inspired products to discovery of pet friendly holiday destinations, coffee shops and local events curated for pet lovers, we are their one stop shop. Every dog that accompanies her human to a coffee shop they found via Collar Folk inspires us, every girl that enjoys her morning mocha in a Collar Folk tumbler keeps us going.
I began my career in sales and distribution at Vodafone, since sales is a male dominated vertical in general, I was the only girl in the team. But honestly it was a level playing field. You get kudos when you perform well, you get the stick when you don't. Being a girl only saves you from expletives, nothing more! When you build a business from scratch, there are challenges everyday. I try not to fret about it and focus on the solutions. I travel to the hills and disconnect. My time there is usually spent indulging in outdoor sports/adventure and some amount of reading.”
