Women Entrepreneur Empowerment

Women’s entrepreneurship has hit a media tipping point. Women-owned entities in the formal sector represent approximately 37 percent of enterprises globally — a market worthy of attention by businesses and policy makers alike. In this conflict-ridden Himalayan territory, entrepreneurship has witnessed many a metamorphosis. Initially, it was taken up by the educated upper class men who invested their own money to build their fortunes.

Then educated women followed and few have made a significant mark over the years. However, what has not been recognized is that many uneducated women are also enthusiastically raising family incomes through micro ventures and reinvesting their earnings in their families and communities. These women also inspire other women in their localities to pursue their dreams through entrepreneurship at the grassroots level. However, there are several challenges that women entrepreneurs face even today. To name a few: Financial assistance and credit facilities; Stiff competition from their male counterparts; Limited mobility; Family ties; Lack of adequate business education; Male dominated society; Low risk bearing ability; Adequate networking opportunities; Lack of ‘product to market’ know how; Adequate utilization of growing social media opportunities; Etc.  AGNI Leadership Initiatives understands all the challenges women entrepreneurs are presently facing and therefore have created this new division to assist them in bridging these gaps and empowering them to finally realize their goals and aspirations. With the formation of an exclusive Executive Committee consisting of highly experienced women entrepreneurs, AGNI Leadership Centre expects to become the ultimate guiding force for all women entrepreneurs not only in India but across the world.

The Sledgehammer's Edge

The Sledgehammer’s Edge is a moving story about how one can use the several Powers of the Universe to successfully achieve every dream in one’s life and create amazing masterpieces for the world to enjoy.

We have a choice in every moment of our lives to either be a victim or a winner! The story entwines itself around a young boy whose personal and professional dreams are turned into reality by a man who makes him recognize the inner strength he has by surrendering to the Universe and all its Powers embedded within his inner Being.

This book takes you on a path of realization of the enormous powers that lie within you to be exemplary in every walk of life. Hence, this book is not necessarily entrepreneurial in nature, but deals immensely with the Soul, Mind and Body and how they subtly relate to each other in creating masterpieces in whatever one does, both personally and professionally. Leadership is not about leading a group of people or an organization to success but living a life delightfully and living it from the very core of one’s inner being without being prejudiced by the fears of the unknown influenced by one’s external experiences. Written in the simplest form of narrative, this book will tug at your conscience and lead you to believe, just as Raj, our protagonist, did in the Powers of The Universe. I have written this book in a simple and uncomplicated language flow so that anyone, across the world who reads it, will be able to understand each and every paragraph crafted by me. I hoped to emancipate your existence through this book and have faith in the fact that I finally will. So read on and enjoy this journey with me…
