All her work is published in Shades of Joy’s Facebook and her Instagram page. She says every single appreciation has always taken her forward and drove her towards creating more challenging and beautiful candles.

On her advice for fellow Entrepreneurs she says “one should choose a career that gives joy to oneself,only then the work will be something you enjoy doing.”
Here is what Karishma Lalwani says about her source of encouragement.
“However, all of us have at least one person (maybe a family member or a friend or a spouse) in our lives who is always there to give us a push and believe in us when we are not sure of ourselves. We must always value their support and take their advice as they are probably seeing what we are not. Fortunately, I have been blessed with not just one but a couple of such people around me such as family and my really close friends. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each one of them for being there for me at every step of the way. “
