Why I Risked It On Social Entrepreneurship
Merging business with meaningful work
I wanted to do business that made a positive impact in the lives of less fortunate people. I wanted to spend my time coming up with meaningful solutions that helped impoverished people. Travelling to Mumbai in 2016 to work on a social impact project called Telestory was eye opening and it solidified that this was where I found my meaning. Nothing can replace the overwhelming sense of affirmation that I felt while walking through a slum for the first time. I was doing what I was meant to do. I wanted to learn more from these people for they seemed so wise, I wanted to be part of their solutions and I wanted business to be the source of their economic empowerment. I wanted to be on the ground and not in an office. My work would blend business with compassion and I would pursue this life called “social entrepreneurship”. Merging business with social impact gave me meaning because it allowed me to blend two things I really loved: business and helping.

Sharing my roadmap so you can discover your definition of success
Jumping off the corporate ladder to discover your passions is crazy without an action plan. I also know what it feels like to feel hopeless and lack meaning in what you do. I want to share my experience of building a life of social entrepreneurship with you so you make the best choices having seen my blunders and wins along the way. I founded my Startup Nomad to provide a safe space for women, who want to create more meaning to their lives, to get inspired by projects of other women. If you want to test the waters of social enterprise before jumping in then this is the right place for you. I hope you discover the Ladyboss in you, redefine your vision of success and pursue that which drives you! I hope our stories inspire other women to unleash the Ladyboss in them! My gift to you is for you to use my life as a case study of what to do and what not to do – and hopefully we share a few laughs along the way. I hope to give you an objective roadmap of how to prepare yourself for jumping off the corporate ladder to pursue your dreams!
