I approach every challenge in my personal and professional life with the focus and courage of Chandraghanta. I keep a sharp eye on market trends and needs when dealing with operational issues. This attention to detail enables us to quickly change our strategy in response to shifting demands and specifications.

For instance, we quickly modified our product offerings when we saw a change in consumer preferences. Additionally, my courage has allowed me to stay firm on our ideals during negotiations with potential collaborators, resulting in more advantageous agreements for both parties. These qualities have been crucial in helping me overcome challenges and advance my businesses.

Our venture was launched during COVID-19, which posed many challenges with market penetration and on the operational side as well. But focusing on our larger goal, providing affordable and premium activewear to our customers fortified us against all the problems. Apart from that, we ensured that no quality-related issues were faced by our buyers, for which we were associated with one of the best manufacturing units in Jordan, where all processes, including fabric selection, fabric sampling, and the shipping process, were taken care of.

I address challenges by being mindful of the fact that the space is new, there is a steep learning curve and it’s constantly evolving. I have to start by being kind to myself and focus on the bigger picture.

Being in the space of climate, sustainability, and veganism, I realize I am standing up against lobbyists and climate deniers on the other end of the spectrum so I constantly need to show courage but also empathy and compassion in the face of challenges.
