Misha Zal

What is WomenHustlers? Hi □ I am Pritisha ( friends call me Misha ). I started working on this initiative called WomenHustlers in the spring of 2019. This is a series of written interviews of women building profitable businesses. My idea behind setting this up is to create actionable interviews that can inspire other women to go ahead and launch their own profitable businesses. Why am I doing this? My reason is simple. When I wanted to set up my side hustle, there were not many places I could refer to for relatable yet actionable advise. My initial resources were IndieHackers, and then slowly StarterStory(which also seemed to evolve from IndieHackers). However, I quickly discovered that I wanted to read specifically about other women running their profitable franchises(and how). I therefore went ahead and set up my own resource. Where did it start? I cold emailed. Yes, that’s right. I cold emailed the hell out of every woman led business I found interesting, or wanted to learn more about. It worked ! Most of the women I spoke to – in addition to being helpful – also appreciated what I am doing. How long will it go on? My aim in phase 1 is to put up 100 quality interviews, and I will then move on and plan from there. I am hoping to engage a lot of you beautiful women – and also the men behind your successes □ I am Misha Again, I am Misha and I am putting together this series of interviews at WomenHustlers. If you are a female-run business, don’t hesitate in reaching out to me I am happy to be talking to you anyway.

It’s a pop up sleep & sun cover that fits all strollers on the market as well as airline cots, moses baskets and car seats. It’s been heralded as “The Miracle Cover” for mums that value their babies all-important sleep routine whilst maintaining a healthy outdoor lifestyle.
