Sheela started her business in September 2015 and is proud to teach Asian Vegetarian Cookery courses. She started her cookery courses from her kitchen table and has now extended her business in doing food demonstrations at local events and delivering cookery sessions all over the County.

Women2Web gave Sheela the confidence to start her own business. Sheela said “In the early stages of my business, Women2Web helped me to save money and gave me the ability to understand and negotiate with suppliers. The advice offered by mentors has been invaluable.”

After attending several Women2Web sessions Sheela was able to develop her own website and understand how social media could greatly improve her business. Sheela said “Since using social media, the profile of my business has risen and I have started gaining trust with my customers. Facebook likes have risen from 0 to 127, Twitter followers have increased and my Klout scoring has risen from 1 to 38.9 which I am really proud of!”

Her advice for any women thinking about starting up their own business is:

“Believe in yourself always. You can do it! Don’t give up. By attending the Women2Web sessions you can make your journey exciting and the sessions will help to keep you motivated.”
