Right from the start, it was the family business for Tanisha Sharma. ”When I graduated I went to work in the family business—Sharma’s Kitchen. I worked in our manufacturing plant to get a proper understanding of the functionality of the business from the procedures used in packing and sealing products to the mechanics of the machinery equipment used to produce our products. Then I moved to the office where I now manage all ordering, invoicing and general operations,” says Sharma, who was born in Australia.
“The most important moment in business for me was the transition to a managerial position upon which I learnt key skills related to the management of employees and business relationships,” she adds.
