After graduating from university, I thought about starting up a gym business.

I’m a wife, a mother of three beautiful daughters and a business woman. Currently, I’m controlling 3 branches of my gym business which are 3C Gym Citraland, 3C Gym Ciliwung and 3C Gym Dharmahusada, and also Alexandria Beauty Salon.
4. What was the inspiration behind your business?
I think gym business is very interesting. Furthermore, this business is growing fast in Surabaya because the need of people for a healthy lifestyle is high and people really enjoy physical activity. I took this as a business opportunity that can bring profit to many parties. Aside from that, my dad and mom have always been my inspiration. They always motivate me to do something that I love and are passionate about. Lucky me, I got the best parents that supported me mentally and physically. They always teach me to never give up and keep on going.

6. What advice would you give to a graduating student who was interested in creating their own business?
Dream, Believe and Make It Come True! As we all know, being an entrepreneur isn’t easy. There are many ups and downs, moments of uncertainty and barriers that may hinder your success but, keep going, have confidence and believe in yourself. You can achieve way more than you know. If the intention is already there, immediately realize it and enjoy the process. Don’t make it a burden. Even though your business is still small, keep managing it with management techniques. Don’t let it seem haphazard. While studying, start paying attention to how to plan promotions, sales, and make financial reports. That’s all, not really advice, because I’m still learning and will always be learning. Just sharing my experiences. Keep up the spirit of entrepreneur, whatever the profession is, make sure you still have a business.
7. In what way did Sekolah Ciputra contribute to your job right now?

I applied this to my job right now, so that everything can be carried out in accordance with the procedures and objectives of my business.
