I must confess, anchoring Bombaywaali has been a most inspiring journey for me. With every speaker, there is something to learn, takeaways that jolt your brain and make you think and enthuse you to keep following your dream. This month’s Bombaywaali by Shethepeople.tv had me chatting with the only Master of Wine we have in India, one of only 369 people in the world, Sonal Holland. Sonal’s is an unconventional journey. She began in the corporate world, and shifted to making wine her life mission on an impulse. And that she’s reached so very far in this journey is not just commendable but an inspiration to every single woman who has ever toyed with the idea of reinventing herself mid-career. And more than everything else, she’s warm, she’s real and she’s got a fierce work ethic.
Some brilliant takeaways I got from the conversation:
Build your tribe. Ask for help. And take all the help you can get.
An idea is only yours when you act on it. Until then it is floating around in the universe for anyone to grab it.
Make your work your life’s mission.
After every great failure is great success, but only if you have the courage to keep going on.
Mommy guilt is real and terrible, but you need to deal with it and get on.
