FailWise: What is De$!ner and its uniqueness?

Pooja: Well I wanted to become a designer since the age of 11 & I wanted to get a tattoo as well, I was in Bangkok and my cousins were getting the tattoo done so I decided to get one too and & ended up getting De$!ner with a Dollar ($) sign as my first earning in Dollars. Since “G” is always silent so I removed that “G” to make it a designer one.

FailWise: What are the another brands you have other than “POOJA MOTWANI De$!ner”? 

Pooja: I own MOH ESSENTIALS, MY RAJASTHAN CONCEPT & SNAP TRAVELS

FailWise: Where do you get your creative design ideas?

Pooja: For me, fashion is everywhere. Whatever you like can be an example of fashion. I personally do not follow any trend. I make what I like even colors or embroideries. I create from simple fabrics and handwork pipes, sequences, threads, etc. According to me creativity comes from inside and from your likings.

FailWise: What were your fears and challenges while starting your own brand De$!ner (family or professional challenges), and how did you conquer that? (please tell in detail).

Pooja: Well I never had any fear. I was always ready for a new challenge as I am a positive person and I do not think twice about taking a risk. I am always ready for new challenges. Yes, there is a time when I feel low because of work, when clients do not pay on time or just take your clothes and don’t pay, but I believe when you have support from family and have a positive attitude then nothing can stop you from being successful.

FailWise: Tell us about those attempts that were not successful, but you learned a lot from them. 

Pooja: There are a few incidences which I won't refer as 'unsuccessful attempts' but some bitter experiences:

(1) I trusted a friend, helped her and gave my contacts, shared my experience and a lot more, but we are no more friends.

(2) I gave credit to a few people; I mean clothes on credit and it was a huge amount and they did not pay the debt. These things make me weak as I trust people easily and they don’t value my efforts and hard work.

So the lesson I learned from these incidents is- Do not trust people so easily. It’s a process to build over a period of time. 

FailWise: What keeps you motivated and inspired even at your low times? 

Pooja: Love yourself & the world will love you, always support and help others & karma will show you the result.

FailWise: What is the best lesson you have learned from your journey? And what advice would like to give to someone (especially women) just starting out their entrepreneurial journey?

Pooja: Work hard, be social, make a network, be humble, be thankful & you will surely become a successful women entrepreneur. 

FailWise: Awards, accolades, or any recognition that you and your venture received.

Pooja: I have received “Seva Puraskar” in 2020, then Journalism award from Sandeep Marwah ji & now I am organizing empowering women award for 50 hardworking women in Delhi at “Constitution Club” of India.

FailWise: Where can we find you online?
