The beginning

Praveen says, “My sister has been running a bakery page on Instagram for the past three years and its name is ‘Cake Me Away’. It was through her that I started this business. Initially I thought to run the business through her Instagram Page. She has been doing this for the past three years and she already had a connection with people who would constantly ask for the raw materials. But, after the lockdown when people were forced to be inside their houses, we decided to start selling the raw materials for baking. To our surprise, once we made the post visible, the response was excellent. Later, I decided to make another page for the raw materials because I didn’t want to interrupt my sister’s bakery page.”

After this, Praveen launched his own Instagram page on September 1st. Praveen shares that through Instagram he was able to boost his business to the next level.

The motivation On asking Praveen, what keeps him motivated he says, “The one thing I believe in is enjoying your moment, be happy in whatever you do and enjoy it. You shouldn’t be upset with yourself. I am a civil engineer and my startup has no connection with my degree. I often go through situations where people ask me about it. So, you would never know what life has planned for you. Keep trying, keep observing. And, when you think the moment is right, execute it.”
