A maternity break, always is a reset button! Self-doubt & questions like, “will I be able to resume work again?”, keep coming back!
However, my professional journey remained unaffected post-childbirth. Initially, as I resumed work, I began operating in areas that provided me with the flexibility to be in a household when the kids needed me. This allowed me to get out of my comfort zone, and learn new things.
My ‘eureka’ moment was when I realized I wanted to keep working as a storyteller. I had always found public speaking and related opportunities fascinating. At 34, my journey as an RJ began.
Further, I experimented and took the first step by working as a freelancer. As I enjoyed the work and started making my mark, I decided to begin my registered consultancy.
Gradually, adding credentials and making a difference in people’s lives with my practice, I also continued learning other skills simultaneously.
I am a Professional Certified Coach(PCC) certified NLP practitioner, a Certified Professional Values Analyst, and a certified DISC Assessor.
However, with 17 years in the Voice Industry as an RJ, Voiceover Artist, and Emcee, I started facilitating sessions with leaders on all nuances learned on that journey on Attitude, Self Expression & VOICE! By 44, I had established myself and with a firm resolve, I founded my consultancy, The Third Eye.
And I have learned that even after having years of work experience, starting a business is always a tough road to tread.
A National & International award for scripting & narrating Radio documentaries, I have been honoured with the “ iconic woman making a difference for all” award by the Women Economic Forum in 2020!
Inspired by people around me, I host a human library podcast featuring people who go beyond themselves to make a difference in the world around us.
Each of them proves that we have a choice of how to face life. After being selected for the #LinkedIn Creator Accelerator program at 52.
I understood that age is just a number. I believe in never letting go of an opportunity when it comes to you. Everyone has their own pace in life and things fall into place over time.
