"Millionaire Housewives tells the stories of twelve enterprising homemakers who, in spite of having no prior experience in business, managed to build successful empires through the single-minded pursuit of their goal, defying all stereotypes. If for Savita Chhabra-vice chairperson of Hygienic Research Institute Pvt. Ltd-entrepreneurship happened on account of unfortunate events striking her hitherto secure world, for Ambika Pillai-one of the most well-known names in the world of hair and beauty today-it was the need to be financially independent that led her down this path. For others like Indian celebrity chef Nita Mehta, entrepreneurship was the result of a niggling sense of wanting to do something beyond her traditional role as a homemaker. Amidst their varied motivations and struggles, Millionaire Housewives offers valuable lessons for homemakers who want to venture into entrepreneurship."
