Working Solo:

Being a solopreneur has it merits with how much *power* we own – 100%
Our chance to really hone in on focus deepen. And broaden too.
There’s an end-to-end experience with going solo. The one where skills required for front facing and back end work become essential.

With a Team :

When we interface with a team
There could be scope of some of the ownership being shared.

There’s the opportunity to do deep work in one area, and possibly stretch into another area to allow ourselves to feel challenged positively.

Scaling becomes exponentially a whole lot more of a possibility.

Learning, the opportunity to grow and share best practices, bouncing ideas with like-minded people, with unique experiences and skills becomes a melting pot of gold

Each channel to serve, add value and create impact has its ebb and flow.

We can expect different levels of chaos with each approach.

At the playground:
What will continue to show up :
Our ability to play nice
To harness self awareness
To practice Respect
To appreciate our strengths
To embrace areas for our growth

What can we become aware of:
Because beneath that surface of what’s visible, are the often unspoken interactions that continue to play on.

These are the messages that we are sending out and receiving – all the time

We can’t know everything

We most certainly don’t ourselves completely

And
In the game of life and while trying to build a great career, get a nice spouse / partner, meet our friends, eat, dance, jog, shop, make money, pray, read, watch TV, go for a drive, watch the sunset, swim, climb a mountain

The underlying message we are relaying in some way to another

Is how well we lived this life.

Why Coaching:

Seeking guidance through a Coach can empower us to become aware of our blind spots

To get called out on what we are avoiding or running away from
self defeating patterns of behavior that we play out unknowingly, but which stop us from achieving exactly what we want – saboteur

To grow beyond our comfort zone

A coach can powerfully support your growth despite your stories

Amidst confusion, denial, projection and getting lost in your story – w/o you even knowing it

***********************

Why Mentoring:

Seeking guidance through a Mentor can empower us by learning experiences

Not necessarily from a mentor with the exact business

This is a myth many continue to carry in them and operate from

That a mentor needs to have a specific set of skills to mentor.

Far from it.

Business and career have fundamental verticals and competencies that apply, regardless of the startup or career role you have

Bust the myths

Grow Exponentially

Ownership is Powerful

Many want and are attracted to the glamour – Drawn to the outside

Hardly ever realizing the amount of Inner Work
Required to sustain and build something that needs your dedication and commitment

Not passion,
But commitment

Because there will be many many many hard days
Beyond the initial excitement

Many jump on the early bandwagon
Me too
Me first
Me only

Hardly ever realizing the amount of sweat, tears, brain-doing
That gets invested in sustaining something

Easy to piggy back
Easy to dramatize

Hard work asks that we forget the drama
And quietly move forward

Amidst doubts
Amidst skepticism
Often alone
Because you can see it
What it will do
For many lives
Including your own

The selfish sense of fulfilment
Beyond the smoke and mirrors
Of the everyday drama

And it’s hard work
Many fall along the way
Many leave
Many quit
Many have no faith
Many can’t see

Put in the Work
The Inner Work

Cast aside the drama
And Work
Work
With gratitude
With Appreciation

Work

I am using a lawsuit that I am initiating as a method to learn and understand the manner in which the legal system works here in India, especially when it comes to how women are supported

 

Some of you already know about the case of cheating, an FIR, that I filed a few months ago, and some of you – all with genuine intentions – also asked – what was I thinking getting into a business of transportation.

I would like to use my case to experiment and become fully aware of how the system pans out and governs or dictates the way we deal with legal issues here, and how the legal system treats us.

I am not a lawyer, and don’t have any intention of changing careers in this lifetime. But I am curious and focused.

When it comes to women, and support, I am aware that in many countries, there is a lot more governance designed around support for women.

These issues might not necessarily be women-centric, no.

But many women feel dis- empowered by the lack of family support, finances, no jobs, the thousands of voices that will rain down to stop her from :

SPEAKING UP
and
TAKING ACTION

*****************************************

HOW CAN WE BUILD AWARENESS – HOW CAN WE EMPOWER ?

As a woman living in a country with over 1 billion people.
Most of our population still lies in the rural areas.
Not a very reassuring proportion, when you look at the atrocities that women undergo.
From a perspective of

In Silence.

So,

I ask:

How many women have the courage to approach someone. Anyone. If they are having issues – personally or professionally ?
How many women in this country feel empowered ?
Who will empower us ?
Whenever we speak up – we encourage others to do likewise.

***************************************

USING CURRENT TECHNOLOGY & METHODS :

I am aware we still live in an era / still stew in an unconscious -to – seemingly conscious mindset here, that is heavily bent on using emotional brain-washing for our advertisements

– Diwali and the other 5000 festivals – for strengthening family time ( hence family shopping – supporting consumerism )
– Life insurance schemes – pun intended ( for father son relationships ripening to bear fruit)
– Celebrities for brand endorsements ( because no one will buy you for your value here )

I would certainly be interested to explore the idea of campaigning more of Pro- Empowerment initiatives

Not #MeToo – which incidentally, and at a level beneath the surface has undertones, speaks volumes of the negativity that women or men have experienced. And really doesn’t offer much intentional value when it comes to the way forward.

Can we encourage campaigns that are positive, encouraging, empowering women to speak ?

Can we harness a culture that is MORE INCLUSIVE versus DIVERSE ? Because we are all human beings and deserve the right to equal opportunity when it comes to systems designed

Working with organizations and leaders allows me to co-create positive, curious and more feeling-centric spaces

SPACES & GROWTH:

Screenshot_2018-03-08-11-33-49.png

Harnessing Emotional Intelligence can offer people who love their work, who enjoy collaboration, who are more resilient.

I’ve had divine grace through mentors who
have pushed me to dive inside myself.

Some revelations come easily. Others emerge in time.

Spaces in Me:
In the last few years, I have made a conscious decision to grow, in some areas.
But I realize that even through my growth, I have had huge blocks in some other areas too. My fears, have stopped me from moving ahead. And I have been unaware of these blocks, until they were called out. Calling them out leads to breakthroughs. Not tiny shifts. Powerful life-changing breakthroughs – that lead to Expansive Growth

Growth needs space to be, to question, to reflect mindfully, to notice and observe, to listen.

When have you felt the most space ?
What has the experience of space given you ?
How can it benefit others too?

What might conscious creation of non-judgemental space offer ?

Awareness of what’s appropriate and what’s not, most likely happens through awareness itself

IMG_20180301_080151.jpg

The more aware we are, of the goings on
The more we open up and speak
The more stories and experiences we are willing to share
Whenever we join hands in a spirit of strengthening a cause

Those are points in our experiences, when breakthroughs however tiny they are – happen.

This not just a gender- centric goal.

This is a goal for a healthier evolving global culture

One built firmly on respect, compassion and equanimity

These are times when technology can play an important part in the HOW of this message

How we choose to voice out
How we choose to bring our attention to the core values of kindness and love

Through open honest conversations
By addressing unconscious biases that permeate our everyday living

How we treat ourselves determines what we allow for ourselves and others in similar situations

How we treat others defines boundaries

What can we become aware of when it comes to healthy, respectful, kind living for each man and each woman ?

I’m bringing Her out again. It’s time for a few reminders
