Simran dealt with her share of hiccups while setting up the business. First of all, the concept of healthy bakes itself is elusive and it takes strategy to convince people that something healthy can be tasty too. Finances always remain a problem for entrepreneurs as not everybody had an elite line of venture capital and seed fund ready to nourish the business.

Simran emphasized on networking a lot. In this age of powerful digital marketing, the strength of network connections and word of mouth still holds acres of ground. Simran feels that the community of women entrepreneurs should be a mutually empowering circle as, in a country with such great demographic dividend when it comes to women, the level of ease for business for women is still at a very nascent level.
