Hello, this is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I have a very special guest on the show today. I have Chhavi Agarwal of Mrs Daaku Studio.

Chhavi and Amit are location-independent entrepreneurs and owners of Mrs Daaku Studio – a place to find to legitimate work-from-home jobs and creative ways to make money online. This blog tells you exactly how to start working from home and what are your best options.

Chhavi and Amit aim to encourage others who are not happy with their current 9-5 jobs to take a chance on themselves and follow their heart.

Chhavi, are you ready to speak to the I AM CEO Community?

[restrict paid=”true”]

Chhavi Agarwal 1:32

Yes, I'm very excited.

Gresham Harkless 1:34

Awesome. Let's do it. I wanted to kick everything off with what I call your CEO story to hear a little bit more about your background and what led you to get started with your business.

Chhavi Agarwal 1:42

Sure. I graduated from a law college in India, I got my master's degree and I started working as a contract attorney. I worked at that shop for almost two years. At the same time, I also met my now husband, Amit, who was then working from home with a company that was based in the UK, so he was working from home at that time. Until that time, until I met him I had no idea it was possible to work from home and that you have so many great options to build an online business. I thought it was a sham and never paid attention to it. I had absolutely no idea about a full-time income with freelancing or the entire idea of blogging, I had no idea you could make money blogging.

At my job as a contract attorney, I worked 12 hours every single day, Monday to Friday. I was so tired all the time, I used all the weekends to catch up on sleep, I had no time for a myth. I had no time for family and friends, I could not travel or learn something new. I had no time for anything. When you're working for 12 hours, you just feel tired all the time. Amit and I also decided to get married at the same time, and we decided we would spend a year in Varanasi, that's his hometown, that's where his mother lived. When I put together all these factors in my life, the 12 hours of working and I am not able to spend a lot of time doing things that I love, I also had to spend a year in Varanasi after getting married. I realized that this was my opportunity to explore my options and to start something on my own, which I always wanted to do.

I wanted to do something that was flexible for me and allowed me time for family, friends, travel, hobbies, and kids in the future. But I don't want to get stuck at a time where I'm doing 12 hours job and I don't have time for kids. Going forward, I would have had to leave my job and I didn't want that scenario to occur right now. I started exploring work-from-home and location-independent life, I stumbled on many income reports from bloggers. All of that sounds very fancy and interesting, income reports. So I started blogging in 2016 and it failed terribly. I decided to keep that aside. Blogging has a steep learning curve. It takes a lot of time to make money blogging, and I wanted something quick.

So I started working on a freelance writing business. I already loved writing law school taught me a lot about how to research and it all came in handy. I did everything to make it work. It did work. I found gigs on job boards, I pitch clients directly. Now people come to me directly, so I don't have to do much on that front. It got to a reasonable level of income when Amit convinced me to revamp the blog and focus on how to make money from home and live a location-independent life. Before that, it was a travel blog. When I started in 2016 it was focused on travelling in India. We revamped the blog. Thankfully, we did not give up the domain. Age domains make it much easier for you to rank on search engines.

It's actually a good thing that your domain is aged. We went ahead and redid the entire website, we relaunched the blog. We really wanted to help people wanting to work from home or people who cannot do a nine to five, because they have health reasons or because they have kids and can't afford care, or whatever the reason is, because maybe they don't like their boss, maybe they don't like their nine to five. In India, many women leave their job after marriage, because they need to take care of home and kids. We wanted to give them hope. We wanted to let them know, that we know that you're educated, you got skills, and you can still earn a full-time income working from home, you don't have to leave everything. That's how and why we started our blog.

Gresham Harkless 5:42

Nice, well, I definitely appreciate that, and kind of what you spoke about when you met Amit and he was working from home a lot of times. We don't realize that there are other opportunities or ways we can even work or you create income. That's why I appreciate your course telling that story, but also everything that you guys have on your platform as well, too, just because a lot of times people don't realize that that's an option but you providing those different ways that people can do that allows people to kind of have that same kind of epiphany that you had, as well.

I know you kind of touched on it a little bit, is there anything more that we can find on your website and on your platform, and then also what do you feel kind of sets you apart and makes you unique, and is what I call a secret sauce?

Chhavi Agarwal 6:24

I think our secret sauce is a personal experience with working from home. Amit has over five years of experience with remote jobs, a full-time remote job with the company and I have experience with freelance writing and blogging. We know what we are talking about, we have been there, and we have done it. We understand the challenges that our readers face. That is also why you can find all the relevant information about work-from-home jobs on our blog. We avoid surface-level posts, it doesn't help anybody.

If I go ahead and tell you that you can become a proofreader, or you can become a freelance writer, it's not going to help you. What we do is avoid surface-level posts. If you want to become a freelance writer, for example, you will get to know what it is, how it is, how to get started, and what are the free resources, if you do not want to invest in a course or a resource right now, if you're ready to invest, what are the recommended paid resources, or you can read interviews with other freelance writers basically everything that you need to decide for yourself.

Then Amit and I are always here to help our readers through their challenges. We get a lot of emails from our readers, and we have a Facebook group, where a lot of people talk about their challenges. We make sure we respond to them and help them out in any way that we can. I think if I want to wrap it up, I would say that the passion for working from home and the emotional connection that we have with this entire idea of working remotely, is what makes everything different.

Gresham Harkless 7:59

Yeah, that makes so much sense. I definitely appreciate it even on your site, because there are so many different ways that people can learn. I know we all learn in different ways, but you guys have courses, you have resources, as you mentioned, interviews. A lot of times, I might learn a different way than another person who's listening to this podcast. But the fact that you have so many different ways that people can kind of learn how to, I don't want to say escape, but maybe find a different way to generate revenue, sometimes it is escape. That's what I appreciate about your site.

Chhavi Agarwal 8:30

We also started a YouTube channel recently, you know, to cater to the needs of the audience who do not want to read. Some people just refer to videos.

Gresham Harkless 8:39

Yeah, I always think those, and definitely correct me if I'm wrong if you find the same thing, but it always provides that different level of connection as you can see a person sometimes if you're busy reading or podcasts are great ways. But if you're able to see and view those videos, to me that creates an even stronger connection than a lot of times.

I wanted to switch gears a little bit and ask you for what I call a CEO hack. So this could be an app or book or a habit that you have, but what's something that makes you more effective and efficient?

Chhavi Agarwal 9:09

I don't read that many books. So I'll stick to habits. I have two which have helped me a lot. The first one, I think what helped me the most was the ability to move ahead without being affected by my failures too much. I failed terribly at my travel blog. I fail terrible on my first attempt of launching a digital product on my blog. I also failed terribly when I decided that I would design the website myself. Okay, and there have been so many more in the past two years, but I never let any of it get in my way, discourage me from working harder or make me forget why I started it in the first place.

I see it this way, if I spend too much time thinking about what did not work or spend time thinking about my failures, when will I do the things that grow my business? It sounds very weird. It sounds like the fear of missing out on FOMO. That's exactly what goes in my head, beating yourself up on something that has already happened isn't going to help anybody. You always have to see past your failures. They are the stepping stones to success. Somebody said that, right? I think one is that I think I am not too hung up on being a perfectionist, and that has helped me.

When I started out, I started with a free theme, which is not recommended. I told myself, it was okay to not have the best-looking website out there right away, I would invest in it, but not now. Because I don't have the budget, it is completely okay. It may sound crazy. But if you are trying to be perfect all the time, you will not move forward, some people don't even start. I think I am not too hung up on being a perfectionist has always helped me out. Sometimes a lot of things take a lot of time to learn they have a steep learning curve. The best way to go with it is to just start so don't wait for everything to be perfect.

Gresham Harkless 11:15

Yeah, I definitely would agree with that. A lot of times, we're waiting for that perfect time or that perfect opportunity that never comes. A lot of times you just kind of have to be action-oriented and start to create. I appreciate you for sharing that with us. I think too, as you talked about with failure, I think that once something is done of course you want to take the lesson from it and learn that, okay, this is what I should have done or shouldn't have done.

But I think a lot of times we will kind of stew over those things that happen and never move forward. We'll keep thinking about it and thinking about it and thinking about it. But just as you said, that doesn't help out as far as you take the next step to getting to where you want to be.

The next question I wanted to ask you is for a CEO nugget. This is a word of wisdom or a piece of advice or if you could hop into be a time machine, what would you tell your younger business?

Chhavi Agarwal 12:00

The first is that to see the positive side of whatever happens and learn from your mistakes. There is a reason why something happens. So don't just leave it at that, try to understand why something works, if it works, or why it did not work.

Gresham Harkless 12:16

Awesome. Now I wanted to ask you my absolute favorite question, which is the definition of what it means to be a CEO. We're hoping to have different, quote and quote, CEOs on this show.

So Chhavi, what does being a CEO mean to you?

Chhavi Agarwal 12:27

In my opinion, the CEO would be any person who knows how to make the best of the cards that are dealt to them. Okay, so basically someone who knows how to use the resources available to them at any moment to the best of their advantage. It could be in business, at home, in life, anywhere. I see you as someone who has the motivation to make something work in any scenario, and they make it happen somehow. They're not the ones cribbing that I don't have this or I don't have, I probably do not have the budget right now.

They find a way to make it happen.

Gresham Harkless 13:06

I love that definition from that perspective. Because a lot of times we're always looking outward to find out why we don't have this or we don't have that, but it's kind of like the true CEO, entrepreneur, business owner, whatever titles we have. It's all about that alchemy, being able to kind of create some things from nothing, being able to make lemonade from lemons, and being able to create those things that sometimes other people can't see.

I love that definition, that perspective.

Chhavi Agarwal 13:34

Yes, you need a lot of motivation to become an entrepreneur, to keep up with it. I think this definition suits, if you are someone who's motivated enough to make something work at any point in your life, with or without resources, you can be a CEO.

Gresham Harkless 13:52

Absolutely. I definitely would echo that as well. Chhavi, I appreciate that definition, I appreciate your time even more. What I want to do is pass you the mic so to speak, just to see if there's anything additional, you want to let our readers and listeners know. Then of course, how best they can get a hold of you find out about your website and everything awesome you guys are working on.

Chhavi Agarwal 14:10

Sure. I think I just have a couple of things that I would like to share with your listeners. The first thing is that stop waiting for the perfect time to start out. We are always looking for excuses. But don't let that stop you, don't wait for the perfect time or perfect anything. If you want to be an online business owner, if you want to start out with something if you're sitting on an idea, just do it, just start with it. It will drive you crazy one day when you look back to see that you never even started or never even given yourself a chance to try it out or realize that it would have been easier if you just started earlier. It's going to make you crazy. So just start out.

The second thing is don't just sit on the internet comparing yourself with anybody else's journey. All you're going to read about other entrepreneurs is how successful they are or what they have achieved because not a lot of articles or not a lot of platforms talk about the struggles. Be your own competition and do your own work. If you focus on doing the right things, you will get success. Comparison is the thief of joy. So just don't do it. Get past it. Trust me, just get past that.

I would love to connect with you all. You can write me at Chhavi@mrsdaakustudio.com. Or join me on my Facebook group which is to be your own boss and quit nine to five.

Gresham Harkless 15:38

Awesome. Well, thank you so much again, Chhavi. What we will do is we'll have your information and links in the show notes so that everybody can follow up with you. I appreciate you for reminding us of that as well that comparison definitely is the thief of joy. If we focus on being better than ourselves yesterday or a minute ago, and we continue to get better and better and better, then it's going to be hard to kind of stop anybody who's listening to this or reading this or is subscribed to wanting to be able to be you know their best selves.

I appreciate that again, and I hope you have a phenomenal day.

What I want to do is pass you the mic so to speak, just to see if there's anything additional, you want to let our readers and listeners know. Then of course, how best they can get a hold of you find out about your website and everything awesome you guys are working on.

Sure. I think I just have a couple of things that I would like to share with your listeners. The first thing is that stop waiting for the perfect time to start out. We are always looking for excuses. But don't let that stop you, don't wait for the perfect time or perfect anything. If you want to be an online business owner, if you want to start out with something if you're sitting on an idea, just do it, just start with it. It will drive you crazy one day when you look back to see that you never even started or never even given yourself a chance to try it out or realise that it would have been easier if you just started earlier. It's going to make you crazy. So just start out. Second thing is don't just sit on the internet comparing yourself with anybody else's journey. All you're going to read about other entrepreneurs is how successful they are or what they have achieved because not a lot of articles or not a lot of platforms talk about the struggles. Be your own competition and out, do your own work. If you focus on doing the right things, you will get success. Comparison is the thief of joy. So just don't do it. Get past it. Trust me, just get past that. I would like to love I would love to connect with you all. You can write me at Chhavi@mrsdaakustudio.com. Or join me on my Facebook group that is Be your own boss and quit nine to five.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. Well, thank you so much again, Chhavi. What we will do is we'll have your information and links in the show notes so that everybody can follow up with you. I appreciate you for reminding us of that as well to comparison definitely is the thief of joy. If we focus on being better than ourselves yesterday or a minute ago, and we continue to get better and better and better, then it's going to be hard to kind of stop anybody who's listening to this or reading this or is subscribed to wanting to be able to be you know their best selves. I appreciate that again, and I hope you have a phenomenal day.
