JESSIE DSOUZA INTERVIEW ON WORKING FROM HOME FOR INDIAN WOMEN

Hi Ladies!

I have to introduce you to an extraordinary woman – Jessie DSouza who started the group – Work From Home Divas India to support women who are looking for work from home opportunities in India.

She is an amazing force and I love her dedication in helping women.

Let’s get to know her better and take her advice on the options available in India, building confidence and dealing with the challenges that come with this line of work.


WFHDI stands for Work From Home Divas India.

It’s a group that I started back in April 2012. Actually I wanted to name it as Virtual Assistants. But, in 2012 nobody knew the word virtual assistants, so to make it more friendly for Indian women I used WFHDI. I started working as a freelancer in 2010 when my first child was 6 months old. I went on doing general admin, web research, project management, writing, customer support and social media management. And at the same time I started this group to support Indian women who were looking for WFH opportunities. I started giving them tips to work from home, got connected with many Indian entrepreneurs who wanted to hire freelancers and they started posting opportunities on my group. And many women started benefiting from the group. Now I provide paid consultation to those who want my personal guidance to start their WFH career.
