A dreamer and competent business leader in Making.
Source of inspiration and reason:
Any woman who has set her mind to achieve her dreams and pursue a life that aligns with her talents, abilities and skill sets inspires me.
It can be a woman from the village who earns the bread for her household all day and comes home at night to perform all household chores with a smile or it can be an extremely powerful woman who has decided to pursue her life her way and counter all challenges that come across from family, culture, religion and society.
Any women who stands up for her life and her dreams is a source of inspiration for me.
A Road less travelled by:
I believe what I do today is also a 9-5 job. Entrepreneurship is not a profession or a career, it is an “attitude”, a spirit of creation, of experimentation, of never giving up and always being on the outlook for new opportunities.
Time has no relevance in one’s life when this burning desire of entrepreneurship exists. One can be an entrepreneur even within the 9-5 bracket or one can never have this spark for continuous growth and momentum with all the time on their hands.
The “Win-Win” scenarios where there is equity and value generation for all associated with the business model. I believe without a triple bottom line approach, sustainable social enterprise cannot be created or at least will not last for the generations to follow.
I must say, that in a male dominated industry like Healthcare, being a young woman is challenging in the beginning. The industry does not take you seriously and believes that at most your career is a “parking space” between your education and you identifying with the “perfect life partner” to live happily ever after with, specially in our Rajput community.
However, if you overcome these initial challenges and continue to strive in the face of opposition or criticism with your self-believe and confidence, the situation changes 360 degrees and being a women becomes your most important asset in the same industry.
I say this from personal experience, that when you establish your professional competence in any business sector, when you make your mark that you are a serious professional who has the talents and skill set required to lead the industry; then being a women earns you more respect and admiration in the same industry.
The one advice I will give to female entrepreneurs out there is to ensure that their self-belief and confidence is never compromised in the challenging situations they will initially face. It is like the trout fish that swims against the tide, the faster you swim against the tide and the stronger the tide; the studier you will arise from it. Being a women is your most important asset and your strength, only if you believe in it and know how to use it.
I keep asking myself questions to motivate myself to achieve more and progress in life. What changes should I bring in my life today that will make tomorrow better than today; What are my next personal and professional goals; How will I discipline myself further to enhance the quality of my life! Is the life I live in line with the potential I have within me.
The most important question I feel is, am I truly happy with my life and the way I live it day to day.
My passion, energy and zest to live life to its fullest fuels my inspiration to keep working in the direction of my goals, because I believe that a happy life is only achieved when our outer world is in sync with our inner desires.
It is not the challenge that makes the experience worst but our response towards it. For me, a challenge is an opportunity to increase my strength further, to overcome it. Everyday is a learning phase and I treat everyday as a new day; new hope.
I promote girl child education; which could benefit not just her but entire family, society and help in better social reforms and nation building. You just don’t educate a girl; but you are creating an entire generation. So, this cause is near my heart and very dear to me.
I push myself everyday towards my true potential and in my professional life I try to create similar motivating and inspiring environments for my teams and my clients and associates.
I try to take out time often to relax and chill out, what I do for the same is to indulge in things that unwind me for example writing my enjoying quality time with friends and family, dining out and experiencing new cuisines, watching quality cinema, gardening and re-doing the plantations in my lawns and my most favorite way to ‘relax and compose myself, travelling to new places; specially Russian countries with family and friends.
I am family loving, adventurous and joyous person who likes to be happy and spread happiness around. I like cooking as well for family and friends.
Hearing all kinds of music specially romantic songs are my favorite, Pass time.
It’s just beginning; and there is a long way to go and prove my potential.
“Every day is a new day; new hope; new opportunities knocking your doors.”
