Viji Ganeshan is a science graduate from PSG Krishnammal College, Coimbatore. Born in a humble family along with two siblings, she grew up with a dreamto be a successful independent woman. In 1989, pursuing this dream, she established a beauty parlor for woman in Tiruppur.
It wasn't an easy profession, since at those times going to a beauty parlor by woman was not looked upon favorably. To encourage women and bring awareness of the importance of personal grooming, Viji even provided free services. This perhaps was the beginning of the motivating story of her success. From a thatched hut to a three storied building, that houses all facilities that women need for their personal grooming.
Over the last three decades as a beauty therapist, Viji has achieved many milestones which make her stand out as a successful woman entrepreneur. In her free time, she enjoys penning poems and engaging in charitable work. Very few have involved themselves like her in professionally educating people who are looking to have a career through innovative new concepts in beauty care. She has numerous certifications, achievements and accolades to her credit, and few are stated below:
