International Women's Day

Over the last ten years, women have been building businesses from scratch while growing by leaps and bounds in corporate settings across the globe. In India alone, women run 14 per cent of businesses that are self-financed, states the Sixth Economic Census by NSSO.

Today men and women are working shoulder to shoulder, with equal talent and understanding unlike before. Women have evolved from being the homemaker to the professional.

Success stories of powerful women are testimony to the fact that passion, perseverance, and potential pave the path to power. For instance, PepsiCo’s CEO Indra Nooyi was considered a ‘mediocre’ student by many. After pursuing an MBA and a Master’s Degree in Public and Private Management from Yale Management School, Nooyi climbed the ladder to success with her simple philosophy of ‘being yourself’.

By and large, women are now seen taking risks, collaborating for professional growth, and strategizing and executing path-breaking work, while proving to be great leaders. Winning the trust of their colleagues and subordinates while rising to the role of mentors and motivational speakers, women have begun to take the centerstage as thought leaders in every field, and year after year. And these numbers are only on the rise.

I have always been honest with my kids, they know how much I love my work. It is a part of who I am. At the same time, they also know that family is priority for me at all times. I make sure I give time to them once I am back from work and mostly on weekends I don’t work unless absolutely necessary. That is strictly family time.

I believe you are successful when your company is. Having a team whom you can trust is very important, it helps you to attend your hassle-free family event.
