Neha lives in Houston, Texas with her husband and two beautiful children; a 3 1/2 year old boy and 8 month old girl. As the owner of two businesses, she strives to empower women and help them succeed.
Q: Why did you become an Entrepreneur?
A: Before starting my first business 4 years ago I was commuting 90 minutes everyday. I quickly realized the life I was building, wasn’t the life I wanted, especially as we were planning to have our first baby. Although I was hesitant to open my own business, I knew it could offer me the lifestyle I wanted and that I would be successful. With the incredible support of my husband, I founded RecruiGyan, and after hustling, landed a Fortune 30 client. From there I built the business to a healthy six figures, all while being a mom. Last year, I started The Sleepy Cub because of my desire to help parents and give back to the community, as we give a portion of all our profits to a local women’s shelter.
Q: Tell us about your business.
A: The Sleep Cub offers pediatric sleep consulting packages for kids aged 0-5 years. I work with parents all over the globe to instill healthy sleep hygiene and empower them to make changes that help them be happier and well rested.
Q: What is your personal mission, or your big why?
A: My personal mission is to empower women. I do that by helping parents be at their healthiest so that they form strong bonds with their kids and supporting our local Women’s shelter.
Q: How do you integrate work and home?
A: I prioritize and I delegate. When looking at my to-do list, I complete tasks in order of priority. I also delegate to my team so I can focus on the big picture and spend time with my family. It has been hard for me to learn how to delegate, but I have learned healthy ways of sharing my work without being completely removed from the process.
Q: What has been your biggest lesson to date as a business owner?
A: It is important to make time spend with family. I am a Type A personality and I like everything to be done perfectly, but I have learned how to give myself time without getting overwhelmed.
My Key Take-aways:
- Entrepreneurship offers the amazing opportunity to give back to the community
- Learning how to delegate can allow mompreneurs to experience the work-life balance they are looking for
