"The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can" ARPITA MUKHERJEE

My Journey While Moving Ahead In My Career:


I realized this was one of the many firsts that I have taken up head on. I have never hesitated to explore unchartered territory instead of resigning to fate or doing something just because that is how most people have done it all this while. After all, someone has to be the first to do it



Challenges Faced: 


Have had over 17 years of industry experience in various roles in the IT industry in the US and India. Each role came with its own set of challenges but having spent most of my time in the US during those years, I would say, the biggest would be going back to work after maternity leave without having a support system at home that we are used to in India.

Once I started my entrepreneurial journey around 7 years ago, many questioned as to why quit a high profile IT job get into a difficult lifestyle full of uncertainty and challenges. I rose over all doubt and decided to take the plunge into entrepreneurship. Today, i feel proud to say that I have been able to scale both my businesses 100% bootstrapped and no spend on paid marketing either.



Words Of Wisdom To Restart Your Career:


When people shed doubts over you or your capabilities, always go with your gut. If you know you can do it, believe in yourself and just do it. There is a lot of power in positive thinking. When you really want to achieve something and work hard for it, the universe will eventually align things in your favour to make it happen. My previous exposure to organizing school and college fests and my Dad's insistence of learning computers at a very early age.


Challenges Faced: 

While we would like to think that the world is fair, a woman still has to balance between work and home. There is a lot more expectations / duties on me as a married woman now. Hailing from Bengal, the land of Durga with her ten hands, I have come to believe that women are more apt at juggling between many roles they play compared to a man.

Although I do agree that the support of men is important. To me, my father when I was a child and my husband currently are the props I could not have done without. It was these men behind this woman who helped her succeed.


Words Of Wisdom To Restart Your Career:

You cannot as for equality unless you offer equally. While maternity takes away a large chunk of time from woman, it should not be seen as a deterrent.

A couple of years gone to look after family should only add to the maturity in dealing with difficult situations. We have to see it adding more value to how we handle our corporate jobs rather than seeing it forming a gap or void.
