It seems very surprising how a woman became the founder of many million-dollar companies from being a door-to-door salesperson.
Yes, it has happened. This is the real story of an entrepreneur woman Bhavna Juneja. She had initiated her entrepreneur career as a door to door salesperson at the young age of 17 years but now the scenario is quite different. She has recently become the co-founder of MPowered, an asset management company.
What Led Her To Do Become A Salesperson
When she was in her teenage, she used to see her mother working for whole the family consisting of Bhavna and her two sisters. It led her to take a decision to give her family financial support. In the defense colony, New Delhi, she began to work as a door-to-door salesperson of home décor items at the age of 16.
Her Entrepreneurial Graph Rises Here
After one year, she bought the list of international buyers of India Trade Promotion Organisation. Then she faxed each and every individual buyer on that list for being in partnership with them. One person in that list was David Dweck of SS Dweck and Sons, from Brooklyn, USA. That firm was a large importer for home furnishing items from India.
When David made a visit to India, he met with Bhavna and wrote a contract for her for being their agent in India. He also transferred an amount of $3,000 as a startup commission. This amount helped her in establishing the Spectra Shades International which was a buying agency that would source home furnishing and handicrafts in bulk and export to international buyers like Walmart, Kmart, JCPenney Macy’s, and Pottery Barn.
In 1996, when she completed her degree in science and interior design, she migrated to the USA. There she was appointed as an office receptionist at an IT startup company. In the USA, she convinced the leadership of that startup company to let her try the hands in sales, and finally, in the next year, she bought that company from its owner, and in a few years, she grew the company to the revenue of 10 million dollars.
After that deal, she put her investment in many businesses including technology, recruitment, healthcare, interior, etc.

Future Plans In Her Own Words
“While the pandemic may have closed some doors, it has also opened up a flood of other entrepreneurship opportunities. Especially, for real estate, the rise of eCommerce has led to a drastic demand for warehousing especially for a business where online brands are looking to set up last-mile warehouses to speed-up the fulfillment process for online orders. It has also led to a thumping demand for various kinds of new residential models that are greatly viable in the work-from-home scenario which many businesses will continue with, for the remainder of this year,” Bhavna says.
