"The difference maker at Corporate Chimes is that we are all “Consultants by Choice." They are also planning to grow with Strategic partnerships, good in international clients ,and by hiring great Consultants who are “Consultants by Choice”.
When we asked her why she chose this line of work she replied "In view of maintaining a work home balance, I decided to quit my 9-5 job, being on my own helps me to manage my time better. " As for the challenges that she faces she answers with the air of someone who practices customer service "The challenges in PR are immense and intense, they can vary from a demanding client, to an ignorant customer. The greatest challenge so far has been handling crisis without losing your cool, my never say die attitude probably helps me overcome these."
Though she quit entrepreneurship once ,her biggest regret is actually that she quit her first company when he was 25 . From what i can tell those are tell tale signs of a hardcore entrepreneur.Her company is self funded and has grown a 100%, with an all metro presence, which is not just good but great for a 8 month old PR firm.
Garnering the right clients, and right consultants has been a critical factor that marked their growth. When asked if the accolades have been coming their way she replies "My clients will probably endorse the same, they have felt value and experience "Consulting in every sense". We have weaned clients from a pure play media relations role to an integrating marketing communications role. We function like the outsourced Marketing Communication department of corporates young small and medium enterprises, who cannot afford internal resources for the role."
Candidly confessing that she feels like quitting when payments are delayed she loves entrepreneurship because of... "The challenges, the work satisfaction, the fact that it is convenient and helps to bring the home work balance."
When it comes to future goals she says "I want my organization to have built, some astounding case studies, that can be presented in the various international forums, we must be able to create a category called Start ups. I would think that the greatest aspiration is when we become an employer by choice to budding PR professionals." A topper in her subject in Bharthiya Vidya Bhavan, she considers Client testimonials to be her biggest awards. The message from her is clear "My tips to all the new age entrepreneurs are innovate your business as often you can.” Innovate to Excel”.
