“That’s very easy,” laughs Namita Sibal when asked how she manages both business and family. The 35-year-old mother of two, along with friend Manisha Gupta started indianartcollectors.com a Web site that acts as a platform between art collectors and artists/painters.
Her day begins at 6.30. After packing off her kids to school and husband to office (“husbands are like children too”, she chuckles) by 9.30 she gets back to work. Two hours of web surfing later she goes to the gym for an hour.
By the time her children come back home at 2.30 pm she has almost done a good part of her job.
“It is such an easy business model and that’s why I opted for it,” she says about Indianartcollectors. In just three years this team of two has notched revenue of Rs 60 lakh just by helping get art collectors (buyers) and artists (sellers) together. They estimate to end the year 2008 with a revenue of Rs one crore says an emphatic Namita.
