Entrepreneurship Opportunity For Women

Work from Home is something which most of  the young moms look for these days.
As they want to spend more time with their kids and family and at the same time want to utilize their free time positively , doing some work and earning a decent income.

I  was  also looking  for various work for home options , while researching for opportunities online came across lots of  jobs which claim to give decent / consistent income  throughout  the year.
I applied to a few of  these was disappointed to see one has to pay joining fees to start working.
Later I came to know these are fraud schemes to lure  job seekers to pay money and evaporate.
I am happy that I didn't  fell prey to these schemes.

I have been hearing from few friends who sell women ethnic clothing on WhatApp & Instagram .
This has always appealed to me  but of  now a lots of  people  are doing the same.
While researching for more I came across this website  Leelan.com . It's Mumbai based and they are manufacturers and wholesalers  of  women western apparel.



Since I  stay in Hyderabad  I wasn't very sure about it as I hadn't heard about the brand ever.
I looked on JustDial to make sure that they physically  exist and was happy to know they do.

One can check their website here : leelan.com

I signed up to their website and my account got activated after getting a call from one Mr. Sameer  who asked me if  I am a reseller and I told him about my plans hesitantly that I do not have a store ,
Still he activated my account.

One can create an account here : Customer account

When I checked their store , the prices seemed very low , getting tops at a price of  Rs 100 or Rs 110 still seems abnormal or too good to be true.
I thought of enquiring about  COD option ( cash on delivery option ) .
I called at number 7666 662266 and enquired about COD , about which they said company does not do COD as most logistic companies in India  would not agree to 20Kg parcel to and fro. Though the logic was correct but red signal was everywhere.

They told me that I could visit  one of  their resellers in Hyderabad  to check the quality of products before placing order. I was happy to know they had resellers in almost all  major  cities of  India.

They don't  do  dropshipping as of now , so one needs to buy products of  minimum value of  5K to see the  checkout button  on their website . I am still on their website , adding & removing products from cart . I will start in a few weeks time.

For you guys , give it a try and if possible , convince the company to start dropshipping.

Some other note :

Leelan.com has successfully sold it's products online on Flipkart  but discontinued  to focus entirely on B2B .

Once you create an account with the website , your account comes for approval .
Once it is manually approved to make sure the registered client  is  further reselling , you have access to the wholesale price on the website .
You can check  their collection and make purchase , minimum cart value is 5K.

So this way one can become a reseller and  it seems a good work from home option to earn extra income .

I am still checking  and figuring out  how to proceed and make this a good earning opportunity for me , Will come up with more details after some time in another post :)

Hope you all liked this post and found it useful .

Do share your views on this , would like to know your thoughts .

                                                       Love

How Do Beauty Bloggers Review Products

Being a  Beauty Blogger is not an easy task and I mean it.
Some three years back when I started blogging I used to buy products to review .
After six months of  blogging  when I started getting products from various brands for review , the first thought that came to my mind was " Beauty Bloggers are Testers " .
We need to test and try new launches and then give honest reviews ( Positive ones ) of  it on our blog.
Since my skin is bit sensitive , I was bit hesitant to try everything on my face , fearing it might cause  breakouts. But work is work , needs to be done.
Then I started choosing brands which were offering Natural , Herbal &  Organic products as products from these brands are toxin free , have no or less chemicals and so are safe to use.
Still I do a Patch Test before applying anything on my face :)

In this post I will Share  " How Do Beauty Bloggers Review Products "




* Once we get  some Skin Care or Beauty  Products from a brand , we need to try it , use it for some time and then write a detailed review of it on our blog and social media handles.

* Upon receiving a product , the first thing I do is Click some good pictures of  it . So that I get clear pictures of  products as  many a times during usage the bottle/Jar/Container becomes  dirty and then Pictures are not too good.

* Then  I do a Patch Test .
I apply that product at  elbow areas and leave it for some time , if  it's  not causing any allergy or rashes , then it's  good and it means it suits my skin , So I can use it without worrying much.

* Next I start using the product.  If  it's a Skin Care product like some Moisturizer , Face mask , Scrub , Body oil etc  then we need to use it regularly for some good period of time like 15-20 days , as only after that we can come up with detailed & honest reviews . But if  it's a Makeup Product then by using it for a week or so one can write it's review.

* If  it's  a baby care product , then before giving it to my kids , I try those products myself , if  it's   good then I give it  to my kids to use or else not.

* After using the product for some time , We write it's review on our blog & Social media handles.

* Review post is a detailed one , includes all product details like Packaging , Shelf Life , Ingredient List , Price , Color , Texture , Fragrance .
Then how to use the product .
Next is Pros & Cons.
Most important is Personal Opinion about the product.

With all these details review post is ready and is shared on various social media sites so as to reach more people.

While writing review one needs to keep in mind to write an Honest Review , one needs to give details like  What they think about the product and brand , Quality of  Product , Price ( Is it too expensive or Okay ) , Most important  Is it  Worth Buying ??

Usually brands prefer and want  only positive and good reviews , ignoring the Con Part , but it's the duty of a blogger to give Honest Opinion about products as it helps others to make right decision while buying or choosing a product or a brand.
Since readers do believe what bloggers write so it's our responsibility to give true & honest opinion.

So this is the way We ( Beauty Bloggers ) review products and share our experience and opinion about a brand or a product :)

Review of   Bamboo  Charcoal  Mask
Received  in Grabox  ( a monthly subscription box )



Bamboo charcoal nose mask comes in a sachet form which is medium in size.
The product information is given in back side of  sachet  but it's in Chinese language so difficult to understand.




Inside the pack there is a black colored nose mask , which comes in form of  nose shape.
The best part about the nose mask is  that it is quite comfortable on your nose.
The nose mask fits exactly on your nose and helps in removing blackheads & whiteheads both.



Now coming to the actual performance part of  this nose mask :
It does a good job in removing blackheads & whiteheads from your nose.
It needs to be sticked to your wet nose  and then you need to leave it for 8-10 minutes and then the mask needs to be removed . Just lightly hold the end part of nose mask and it will get removed easily.

Post removal of  the nose mask  you will realise that your nose area is not dry which happens with most of the nose mask. It keeps the skin soft and moisturized , so it is good for dry skin also apart from normal & oily skin.

Pros
1. Travel friendly packaging.
2. Comes with goodness of   charcoal mask .
3. Good for all skin type , effective on dry skin also.
4. Effective in removing blackheads & whiteheads.

Cons
Product details written in Chinese Language so difficult to understand.

How To Control Gadget Addiction in Kids


Technology  has  captured a big space in our life. We are so much dependent  on Technology  that it changed the way of our thinking and perception. We feel technology  has made our life easier , but in a real scenario , Over dependency on technology is like  a curse.

Children of  this generation are smart and intelligent  right from their birth.
They are so active that they learn how to operate smart gadgets of  their own.
Due to the busy and nuclear family lifestyle , smartphones have become  the usual pacifier to calm down kids  and make them quiet when they are showing tantrums.
As there is a need for both working parents , children entertain themselves with the help  of  these electronic gadgets. Because of  continuous usage  of  these gadgets , children are now addicted to them.




What we as a parent can do to control gadget  addiction  in  Kids :
Being  a  responsible  parent , you can do many things , which can help your kid  come out  of  the gadget addiction.

1. Be a Role  Model  for your Kid
Children have a tendency  to copy every act of  their parents.
Whatever activity a kid  observes  from his parents , he replicates it.
Therefore , if  they see that  you spend most of  the time watching TV or Smartphones , they will also copy that  acts of  yours.
Hence  it is important to change your habit and be a good  role model  for your kids so that you can ask your  kid to follow  your activity  happily.



2. Encourage  Healthy  Habits
It is good if you encourage healthy habits in  your child by substituting the smartphone's  usage with some writing or  reading  activity. It may happen that your child  may not reciprocate the same from the first day but take an extra step and the reason for such implementation.
If  you implement this habit on a regular basis , your child will definitely  respond  positively.




3. Have a Play Time with  your  kid
Children  always  seek some time from their  parents.
Therefore spend some quality time with your kids.
Talk with them , Play with them , so that they do not feel  lonely  and take the company of smartphones to entertain themselves.
As per the child  Psychology , when parents spend their time and play with children , they feel more bonded and build more trust  for their parents.

4. Keep Your  Home  Tech Free
Although it is not possible to keep your home completely free from Technology , still you can manage to keep some of  the rooms as Tech Free Zones.
It will limit your child's  screen time and will help your child to focus on other activities too.

Apart from the above mentioned ideas you can apply many other ways to keep your child sufficiently away from gadgets.
It is very important to get  involved in their lives , so that  you can understand them better , so that you can guide them accordingly .
