Author: Prachi Garg
Genre: Entrepreneurship, Business self-help, Management
Publisher: Srishti Publishers
The blurb portion of the book is compactly written and highlighting the core substance of the story. By reading only the blurb part of the book, you can get the idea what this book is about. I decided to read this book by only reading the blurb. Here is the blurb: “In an era booming with the 'Start-up' trend and loving this new attitude of breaking boundaries and conventions of a career, one also faces the challenge of being able to partner up with the right people. In lieu of reliable and trustworthy partners, real life couples in relationships have started exploring the idea of partnering up in business too!
Speaking to various couple-preneurs, one realizes that the myth about mixing work and home is just as misty as the one about needing a stable and conventional job for an ambitious career. These dynamic
start-ups break stereotypes and cover a varied range of services: ecommerce, innovative gifts, eco-friendly products, health care solutions, social responsibility ventures, event management, digital
solutions and many others.
SuperCouples brings out such lovely stories of enterprising couples. After all, when great minds come together to produce something built on conjoined dreams, the result is eminently successful.”
The front of the book shows picture of a boy and girl (animated) sitting over two cups separately enjoying their time together. There are some financial and entrepreneurial terms written over the cover which gives the idea of the content inside the novel. If I need to justify this according to content, then of course it is appropriately designed.
After reading the book, I can say that no other title can be more apt for this book than this.
The plot of the novel is breathtakingly penned down I must say. Since it is based on numerous true events, and real experiences of the life, so the significance of the encounters that are inside the book is more to be concentrated on. Author has shown that Love and work can go hand in hand, when your life partner becomes your business partner. Really, In this partnership, one can easily rely on the other person, there is complete trust and mutual understanding. The plot has the power to captivate the mind of any young dreamer. The hard work of the author ‘Prachi Garg’ is clearly visible through the plot.
It encapsulates the stories of twenty couple-preneurs who showed that mixing work and home is just as misty as the one about needing a stable and conventional job for an ambitious career. Author Prachi Garg has penned down these twenty stories in a very detailed way. It is not that all the couples decided to open something of their own or quit their well-established jobs after their marriage. They decided to take risks and it was their believe and trust on each other and hard-work that their baby(Start-up) is growing with each passing day. The story is capable to make the reader turn the pages of the book and also self-sufficient to boost your confidence if you ever dreamt of starting something on your own.
Quotes from the book:
Love and work can go hand in hand, when your life partner becomes your business partner.
It’s not like there are no differences, Of course there are times when our opinions or decisions clash. But that’s where the true colours of a relationship show, right?
Opportunities come as both success and failure. While success brings you encouragement and increases your bandwidth to reach for more, failures help you work harder on the foundation- the details.
When work no longer remains an obligation but becomes something you like dedicating your time to, something that feels worth all the effort, you know you are doing it right.
Attraction is common. What’s rare is having someone who wants to grow & build with you. A soul partner, a soul confidante, a soul mate.
The best teacher comes in the form of experience, and the ones to learn the lessons in this process are the wisest ones.
There are two kinds of entrepreneurs - ones where if they grow, only they grow themselves, and others where if they grow, the whole ecosystem grows with them.
When your relationship adds passion to your business partnership, you could build an empire.
Everyone faces failure at some point in their lives, but the key here is to keep trying, rectifying your mistakes and doing it right. You will definitely find success.
Having your life partner as your work partner can make things easy, but that doesn’t change the fact that starting an enterprise can be a different battle in itself.
Unless you give it your all, there is no point.
My Verdict: 5/5
Author Prachi Garg has crafted and presented the story (based on true events) in such a manner that will keep the reader at the edge of their seat. The prime intention of the author that she wanted to inspire the young generations of our country by telling them the stories of successful entrepreneurs so that they can contribute to the progress of the nation; is quite a successful attempt. It is a comprehensively good work.

Recommendations: I would like to recommend this book to young dreamers of our country.
Super Couples is a non-fiction book written by Prachi Garg. Its her second book & its about entrepreneur couples. She describes herself as a true blue Mirandian & is an entrepreneur herself. She is an alumna of Great Lakes Institute of Management & has co-founded Ghoomophiro.com. She is passionate about writing & travelling. This is her second book.
The book has success stories of 19 entrepreneur couples & their start-ups. There’s a huge variety of selection of entrepreneurs who talk about their passion like that of art, food, technology, etc. The author also discussed the hardships the entrepreneur couples faced in their journey & how they tackled it.
First of all the author needs to be praised for picking such an awesome theme which breaks a stereotype that business should be kept apart from family, a husband & wife can handle a start-up together & that too successfully. And also I thank her for highlighting these start-ups. All the stories are inspiring especially for the young new India & portrays very well how we want our society to be. The cover is cute & title is apt. The language is simple too.
While the men are from Mars and women are from Venus gets hyped all over, this book by Prachi astounds people. How is it possible for couples to stand side by side and make important decisions when it is assumed that they can't even be around each other for long?
When I read this book, it broke through so many layers of myths and misconceptions and instead focused on the goal....the goal of building successful business.
This is the book that truly inspires all.
Every story is very engaging and inspiring too. The stories will teach you about the family values, life and career goals, contentment and many things which will inspire you for sure. Powerful stories with powerful peoples will make you powerful to lead you own life and go on the right track.
Thanks prachi garg for the amazing inspiring and life teaching book.
The thought of covering Couples who were successful in their business is Unique. I am glad to see the stories of Swaty Bhargava of CashKaro among others. Having said that, I am equally glad to find the inspiration behind the start of SoulFlower and few other brands.
To tell the truth, I have not heard about some of the brands but this book made me to understand as to what they actually do. The coverage is really an appreciable task as the book has captured the likes of eCommerce, Healthcare, Social Welfare, Health Care, Event Management, Digital Solutions to name a few.
How some of the ideas were conceived and how these couples faced their initial challenges is a lesson for all those who are dreaming to go for their first start-up venture. It would be immensely helpful to you if you give it a read prior to venturing into it..
The book is surely an eye-opener for me. I am sure, it will be the same for lot of others out there as well.
