Chitra Balasubramaniam

An Author, Entrepreneur, Quantum Leap Coach, and Online Trader, Chitra is a passionate visionary. Chitra has always been a firm believer in the power of dreams and bold visions. 

A psychology graduate from the prestigious Queen Mary’s College Chennai, Chitra was born in a traditional household that believed a woman’s only goal was domestic and marital bliss and to pursue any other aspiration was against societal norms. Married at a young age of 21 years, Chitra always aspired to create an identity for herself, beyond the role of a homemaker and a mother. She longed to break the monotony of life as a traditional woman and carve a niche for herself as an independent, confident and empowered woman. She knew that the corporate rat race of a 9 to 5 job was not what she desired, as she always dreamt and envisioned herself as an entrepreneur.

At the age of 30 years, she gathered the courage and confidence to transform herself as she took her first steps into the entrepreneurial world. Armed with a love for fashion and an instinctive understanding of design, Chitra transformed herself from an introverted and reserved personality, to a fashion forward woman whose forte was a distinct understanding of style and trends. At the age of 40 years, she finally achieved her entrepreneurial dream with the launch of her company Tres’chic Academe that aimed to empower women through fashion, giving them the confidence and power to believe in themselves.
