Mrs. Jyotsana Anand being a Delhite, moved to Ahmedabad in 2015 after getting married. She had been working from the age of 20 as key account manager sales in one of the leading international logistics company before moving to Ahmedabad. Post her migration to Gujarat she had started her new phase of journey as sales manager back in one of the leading international logistics company.
I just passed 9th standard and got to know that my father had to leave his job because company was shutting down, situation wasn’t too great and it effected my studies too, which led me to score fewer marks in my 10th standard. Somehow I passed my 12th standard with good marks however the family was demanding me to work and study together. So I opted to do my college through Non-collegiate and I started taking tuition to support my family.
After my graduation, though tuition were continued I got my first break to enter into an industry which was completely new and I had never heard of it which was international logistics. I joined Continental Carriers as Customer service executive and then there had been no looking back. I was working almost 15 hrs a day. Working, taking tuition and pursing for my MBA too. I left taking tuition when I started earning well from the job and grew working in this industry only and god was kind enough that struggling days were getting over however By that I had understood that I can reach to a place with my hard work and honesty only.
In 2009, I joined DHL global forwarding in sales and started handling their Key customers and grew business with them. Though my company and my parents have always been supported to me because at times you have to work late at office and the kind of industry I was in sometimes demanded late night follows up the USA as well. Then I got my first achievement of the year Sales award in 2012 which proved that I had made my identity in the world’s leading company.
While I was on the peak of my career I chose to get married and moved to a city which was completely new and I had never thought of moving to Ahmedabad from Delhi but destiny chose this for me and I left my job.
I got another opportunity with DB Schenker in Ahmedabad and joined them as Sales Manager for Gujarat region. While working with them I went into family way and became mother of a baby girl in May 2016. While I had to join them back after my maternity leaves I realized that my daughter needed me more than anything else. So I decided to quit and dedicated my time to family and my daughter. I actually realized that mother time is very important for the infant because then you can see change happening in the baby from teething effects of diaherra to crawling to the day she started walking and called me ‘Mumma’.
Even while enjoying each and every moment of motherhood sometimes getting frustrated of being at home and not working or putting her career at stake started taking over her mind. It’s very difficult when you work for almost 14 – 15 yrs and suddenly take a sabbatical.
Presently with her daughter of 3 and half and her decision of quitting job she feels that was the right decision because now she had been an active foot for the activities.
“We go out for shopping. In her, I got my best friend. Time is just passing with every new activity, every new talk of her. It is rightly said that a child completed a Woman and women who have daughters are blessings in disguise.”Jyotsana Anand
Today I realised that my decision of quitting was right because I have been enjoying each and every new activity of her and have been actively looking after her growth and development.
Soon I will be back and fulfil my dreams of working woman as well while I will manage to take care of family and my daughter as well.
