Female entrepreneurship is vital for our future. Collectively we can make a change by closing the gap between men and women in the workforce.
Entrepreneurs are those adventurous, daredevils who drive deep into the pressing problems of society and try to find solutions to them, not by leaving the responsibilities in the reins of the government or business, but by trying to change systems as a whole and persuading societies to take new initiatives
India being a growing economy is a hotspot for young entrepreneurs. With a large population of more than 130 crores, businesses all over the world see it as a potential destination for establishing a start-up. For years, males dominated the business industry, leaving less or no room for females. But the trend has changed now. More and more women are jumping into the business and many have successfully established globally renowned brands. Creating job opportunities for a large number of people, the women have braved the societal pressures and stereotypes to come up with the solutions that are far more reliable and innovative.
Recent years, Maharashtra has witnessed an increase in women-owned businesses in fields such as household Industry, fashion, farming, IT, manufacturing, oil, and more. The development has broken the gender stereotype where women are depicted as weaker and incapable.
These bold and fearlessly ambitious entrepreneurs are shaping the future of Maharashtra, serving as mentors to millions of women and youths.

‘ONLY I CAN CHANGE MY LIFE NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR ME ‘The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something.
One such story is of Madhumita Gubre, who is a renowned Fitness expert & OWNER of 2stepz fitness and dance studio recently awarded very prestigious DR ABDUL KALAM BHARAT PURASKAR, Nutrition Expert, CPR certified, Folk Fitness brand ambassador, and the winner of MRS INDIA MULTIMEDIA 2017, also awarded as FITNESS INFLUENCER OF THE YEAR 2018, Founder of WEAN( Women empowerment association network ), Director of Ms India fitness 2020, currently pursuing her passion for fitness in the city of Nagpur. When we talk of entrepreneurial transformations, Madhumita is definitely one person who has walked on the path of Fitness and has reached the zenith of her profession that she established on the basis of her interests and hobbies.
Madhumita’s story of transformation fits the bill in more ways than one. While, we have instances of mental transformations, physical transformations and financial transformations all independent of each other; her story is a perfect amalgamation of all the three factor
She was into fitness but her love for fitness reached it’s ultimate high when she discovered the magnificent world of various Fitness forms. Even though she was battling with a minor form of depression at that time, what set her apart from the lot was the way she wanted to excel at whatever she took up. Even today, the students feel very comfortable talking to her and the way she interacts with her students as well as her zealous attitude towards life makes her a favourite of many. Everything that she has adapted from Fitness has helped her make her student’s fitness experience full of happiness as well as ease.
But, for someone who is always smiling and is finally in a place that satiates her work-life balance, her journey of achieving all this was not easy at all. Since she was born in a traditional Bengali family, ‘life’ for her revolved around conventions. It meant getting good grades, landing up a great job and settling down after getting married. She did all of this and with her head held high. However, little did she know then- that this was not her inner true calling!
Madhumita, after completing her education, joined the corporate world as an HR HEAD and went on to marry her college sweetheart- Girish Gubre, a Maharashtrian boy. They were blessed with a boy soon and Madhumita’s life circled around her beautiful family and her job. She quite gracefully handled both the jobs for many years until a family situation led her to quit her job.
Suddenly, her ever-busy life became mundane and she felt a void somewhere which started bothering her. Few years went by and she realised that she is stuck at one point and that it was time to get out of it. Luckily for her, she entered into what needed her to break the monotony and find an identity independent of wife, mother and HR professional. She found a way to keep the two important roles of her life(mother and wife) while juggling with becoming an expert at the third field, of FITNESS.
Fitness started as a therapy to get out of depression for her Madhumita, slowly lead her to be the brand ambassador of Folk Fitness. Her journey is a definition of such an impeccable transformation and has helped to affirm and belief- that when your passion becomes your profession, you can overcome situations that have been holding you back from reaching your fullest potential until now.
It was not easy for her as she had stayed home for a long time and gaining back her confidence was not easy. Also, the career switch from corporate world to a fitness instructor was quite an adaptation to make. With her family’s support, Madhumita got certification to run her own studio, which many people don’t have! In everyone’s life, there are adversities but those who conquer their situations are real life heroes. Her life has been full of ups and downs but when Fitness was introduced to her life, it changed chapters of her existence forever. With the help of this new lifestyle, she rose to the throne of Mrs. India Multimedia and life turned out to be a rollercoaster ride for this young talent.
Madhumita is not only inspiring and motivating many young girls and housewifes to join fitness but also taking sessions on fitness , nutrition and grooming in corporates, schools, colleges. As a folk fitness brand ambassador she has motivated more than 100 females to start their career in fitness by guiding them for instructor certification and training
However, Madhumita has proven that even though domestic responsibilities might bog you down- if you put your heart into it and get the right opportunities, then you can definitely RESTART YOUR CAREER. Our society is such that most women need to attain the perfect balance between their professional and personal life, which is something Madhumita did impeccably.
