Small Business Spotlight (SBS) – Whimsical Wishes By Princi/Pratibha Bhasin
Pratibha Bhasin who also goes by Princi says whimsical wishes are her musings. She is a wife, mom, technologist, and fashion enthusiast with a passion for making everything look beautiful.
Her husband, Paraag is her biggest supporter and helper along with her 7-year-old twins Yuv and Hana. Their excitement and energy inspire and drive her to create beautiful memories.
We always think of businesses in the traditional sense that either sell a product or service. But Princi’s only goal is to create and share joy through her DIY posts and experiences.
She is someone I would call a joy spreader and that is so needed especially in the past year.
Let’s find out more about Princi and her vision behind starting Whimsical Wishes
FTW: Growing up, we always have thoughts about what we want to be when we grow up. Do you remember what you wanted to be when you were 5 years old? Princi: There were quite a few things I wanted to be from a Model to an interior designer to a writer like Jane Austen or Jo March.
FTW: What one piece of advice would you give your younger self? Princi: Be courageous. Courage is not doing big things but owning your vulnerability and letting yourself be human.
FTW: Tell us a little more about your business? Princi: Whimsical wishes by Princi is my way of spreading joy in the world. I create special moments/memories for and with my loved ones. I get an opportunity to bring all my loves – fashion, decor, design together and bring cheer and exuberance to everyone around me.
FTW: Was there an aha moment that got you rolling on this dream? Princi: 4 years ago, I did a personal and professional training development program- the Landmark forum. The freedom and joy I felt for the first time in my life just spilled over and created this whole new self-expression for me.
FTW: Did you encounter hurdles to get you to this point? How did you overcome it? Princi: I would second guess myself. So, I started dreaming and vocalizing my dreams and created plans. Then I started sharing them with people who empowered me.
FTW: Now, tell us a little more about you. Princi: I am a wife, twin mom, technologist, and eclectic lover.
FTW: Tell us one of your favorite quotes? Princi: One of my favorite ones is “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.
FTW: If you had to write an autobiography or memoir- what would it be titled? Princi: I would call it “She made LIFE fun”
