My Journey While Moving Ahead In My Career:
I've taken a lot of risks, stretched beyond my day job and helped leaders in my organization achieve their goals. Doing all of this, has helped me in moving up the ladder!
Several! The first being getting caught in the work-life crossroad. I've always told myself "Hang in there Simi!" and this has held me in good stead.

There's no short cut to hardwork and success.
