From Passion to Purpose (URJA): Radhika’s Journey to Financial Freedom!

As a woman, finding the courage to pursue your dreams can be daunting, especially after taking a break to prioritize family or other responsibilities. However, my story is a testament to the fact that it’s never too late to turn your passion into a purposeful career.

Hey there, I’m Radhika, the proud founder of Urja Handmade Bags and Accessories. Let me take you on a journey through the twists and turns that led me to where I am today.

It all started seven years ago when I stumbled upon my love for sewing. What began as small, simple projects soon blossomed into a full-blown passion. I found solace and joy in every stitch, and before I knew it, I was diving headfirst into the world of handmade bags.

But the road to becoming a professional bag maker was anything but smooth. I faced countless challenges along the way, from the technicalities of bag making to the complexities of sourcing raw materials and understanding hardware. There were moments when I felt overwhelmed and unsure if I could make it work.

Yet, fueled by my passion and determination, I refused to give up. I threw myself into research, devouring every bit of information I could find on bag making techniques and business strategies. I spent countless hours experimenting with different designs and materials, learning from each success and failure along the way.

Today, I stand as a proud bag maker and the founder of Urja Handmade Bags and Accessories – a venture born out of my love for sustainable and user-friendly products, meticulously crafted with love and passion.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my journey has been the opportunity to empower other women. Recognizing that many talented women lacked the resources and support to pursue their passions, I made it my mission to create opportunities for them through Urja. Today, I am blessed to work alongside a team of skilled artisans who inspire me every day with their creativity and resilience.

Embracing the power of social media, I recently ventured into Instagram, and the platform has proven to be a game-changer. Through this powerful platform, I’ve been able to showcase our handmade creations to a global audience. But more than that, Instagram has allowed me to connect with fellow artisans and entrepreneurs who share my values and vision. It’s incredible to see how a simple app can foster such a strong sense of community and collaboration.

The path to success was not without its fair share of obstacles, but the unwavering support of my family fueled my determination to forge ahead. Their belief in me was the driving force that kept me going, even during the most challenging times.

To all the women out there who are contemplating a career change or dreaming of starting their own business, I want you to know that you are capable of more than you realize. Your passion is your superpower, and with dedication and perseverance, you can overcome any obstacle that stands in your way.

So don’t be afraid to take that first step. Whether you’re pursuing your hobbies or drawing inspiration from your past experiences, know that there is a world of opportunity waiting for you. Join me on Instagram @urja.radhika and let’s embark on this journey together, empowering each other every step of the way.
