Richa Mehta is not less than a Perfectionist as she doesn’t settle for anything less whether it’s about her being an entrepreneur or walking the ramp as a model, whether brand endorser or brand curator, whether choosing the assignment for acting at her own best.
Richa Mehta needs everything on point.
She strives for flawlessness and sets excessively high-performance standards.
Being critical and choosy about her career choices sets her apart from others. Some people call it her royalty and some say it’s her attitude. When we interviewed her, it seemed a bit of both. A balanced and perfect blend.
While she is stepping up the ladder on the above traits, she also mentioned her own social initiative EarToHear which was started this year 2021 focusing on women’s health. It makes her emotional just to state that in just 6 months of social initiative, EarToHear and is already doing so well in terms of reach and mental health awareness.

A precious QnA with Richa Mehta- What are the inside secrets?
Taking time off her busy schedule, we managed to ask her some inside questions about her life and she gladly answered.
What attracts you towards entrepreneurship instead of a corporate career?
I chose entrepreneurship because I always wanted to do something of my own. Why make money for others when you can fill your own bank account and more with the same level of hard work and dedication. In fact, something which worked well for me was my passion for fashion, which in turn became my profession. Getting invited by colleges/forums to give multiple lectures on my success story of “Journey from Entrepreneur to Brand Ambassador” makes me believe that I have made it large.
Being on your own is always tough, however, having strong willpower and a never-say-die attitude can turn things your way.Richa
During this COVID-19 crisis, what are the measures you have undertaken to continue your business without disruption?
COVID has impacted all businesses. But innovation and creativity can things turn around. That’s what I applied and followed for my businesses. Work from home which seemed almost impossible has now become an everyday routine- which not only saved day-to-day costs but also increased overall turnaround for my team.
My companies started conducting virtual meets, which gave a chance for people from across India to participate. Instead of having a quarterly launch, we switched to conducting shows and events every two months. Virtual sessions became an everyday routine for team meetings.
No business can grow in isolation and that’s what we tried to tap during this pandemic by making everything digitalized.
How do you manage yourself and keep on going despite the challenges? What drives you?
Challenges are part of life. Every day is a new learning experience. But to take out time for yourself to have a breather is the key. I am enthusiastic and passionate about my work. But I balance it and make sure to have family time once I head back home.
Slowly and gradually, I have made it a point to say ‘no’ to events and shows; if it’s getting too hectic. Moreover, I have tried to keep Sundays reserved for ‘me time.’
Surprisingly, on one sunny Sunday, I tried my hand at painting after almost 10 years. It came out so good that few of my followers requested to pay a price to purchase it. And guess what – It’s now sold. It feels special and a cherry on the cake, to love what you do and receive love for your work.
I always say- “Believe in yourself, and you can change the world”.Richa Mehta
In your opinion, what is more significant: Ideas or a good team for a successful start-up?
It’s a mix of both. Without good ideas, an ideal team will be a failure. And having a good idea without an appropriate mix of team members is a disaster. Nobody can run a company in isolation and having a great team can move mountains.
To grow, one needs good ideas and proper execution. Proper execution is not possible without the best team.
You are always positive and motivated, what keeps you going?
I take one day at a time. Every day is a new start. I sleep the problems over and try to wake up with new perceptions and lots of positivity. This not only results in a positive atmosphere at home, but it also reflects in the office and work.
What are the business mantras you have embraced as you sought to establish your success story?
I try to grab every opportunity to build and scale up the brand ‘Richa Mehta’. I don’t stoop to a level where I feel it won’t work whether on monetary grounds or on personal growth. Every appearance counts whether it’s for an event or for a business meeting.
What are the three most important lessons you have learned building your start-up?
Stay positive, build professional relationships and learn something new each day.
Given the rapid pace at which the world is changing, what are the leadership traits that are necessary for success?
Become a leader who takes the team along as no one can grow in isolation. Always remember, your biggest competition is you.
Please share with us – what has worked well for you so far?
Professionalism. When I am at work or business meetings, I always make work relations. I don’t tend to go too far with someone or allow anyone to interfere in my personal space. Because of this, everybody from the teenager to adults, respects and gives tremendous support and love.
We would love to know your advice for all those starting out as aspiring women entrepreneurs?
If you believe in an idea, just go for it. Things will develop and you will find the way ahead. Just don’t be afraid and take the lead. Let’s face it, your career development is in your hands.
While running out of time, Richa sums up everything in just one line.
As a concluding line, she stated Mahatma Gandhi’s quote, saying “Be the change you wish to see in the world”.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.Mahatma Gandhi.
