Hi <<First Name>>

Yes, we know you've been waiting for this newsletter all March. But we wanted to present it to you on Friday the 13th. Hope with this newsletter the spirit of dialoguing finds you as it found us!
Top Stories: 
  1. IPL 2020 postponed to April 15th.

March 'The Month of Women' (1/6)
From women's day to Holi to spring. This month has beautifully transitioned from shivers to blossoms. We celebrated women of colours, not in the traditional sense but women who are breaking the mould and are the first in their chosen career paths, the colours of their career. Bold like black, bright like yellow and becoming like Michelle. Who all read her book cover to cover? #askingforafriend 
March being women her-story month, 'Be The First' stands to break the distinction of 'male and female' and gives credit to all where it's due. Divya is the first lawyer and CEO of her family. Not a female lawyer but just a lawyer.
Women who are changing the game:

1. Mahima Kumar Mahajan, Indian Olympic Trap Shooter - A game-changer with a shotgun!

2. Radhika Chopra, founder of Three Clive Road, a brand that specialises in exquisite hand-blended teas and bespoke locally produced accessories.

3. Sudiksha Jain & Riddhi Jain founders of NeceSera, a brand that makes butter-soft loungewear.

Hacks From Our Accountants (3/6)
*In collaboration with CAxpert
We break down accounting for you (read our expertly edited article here):
  1. Mobile apps like Expensify and Walnut sync your SMS and photos and help track your payments.
  2. Want to see your employee hours in real-time? Try apps like Quickbooks and Zohobooks. A well-managed and structured payroll system ensures accurate payments to employees.
  3. Most businesses prefer the accrual method of accounting. It provides a better picture of the financial results of the company.
  4. Online invoicing tools (Invoicely, QBO, Zoho Books, etc.) allow you to generate on-the-go GST friendly invoices.
*We aren't promoting these apps, only friendly suggestions.

FYI with DR (5/6)
  • We have to address the corona in the room. Today, in India there are 75 COVID-19 reported cases with 1 death. And around 1.2 Million people die of pollution every year in India. You do the math.
  • RBI is set to do a US Dollar sell-buy swap. The central bank will sell dollars in the market and buy them back after 6 months (or rollover).
