Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Poem for Women's Day: A woman is all this and so much more. She has conquered land, skies, and space. She can do anything under the sun, just name a chore. Once assigned a task, rest assured it will be in place.

Expansive like the limitless sky,
Sparkling like the twinkling star,
Sizzling like the red-hot sun,
Icy like the moon,
Deep like the bottomless ocean,
Intense like the breaking surfs,
Playful like the ebbing waves,
Refreshing, like the rain on a parched land,
Gentle as a spring breeze,
Tempestuous like a storm,
Bountiful like mother earth,
Tolerant like the ground,
Mysterious like the deep woods,
Invigorating like the green foliage…
A woman is all this and so much more.
She has conquered land, skies, and space.
She can do anything under the sun, just name a chore.
Once assigned a task, rest assured it will be in place.
She holds the key to life and its genesis.
Nurtures each life without kicking up a fuss.
She is as strong, confident, and ambitious.
But she is not a man, she knows the difference.
Her strife is not to claim equality or superiority.
She just wants to be recognized and have her own identity.
She wants to live as rightfully and live unapologetically!

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
