Returning from sabbatical is a brave decision and when it comes with making investments in order to re-launch yourself, you begin to procrastinate and defer decision making. Given your gap in employment and the fast pace of skill development, the lag in service is best offset through building competencies to reboot your career with good ROI.

You belong to exciting times. You live in connected India. You value choices. You value work-life balance. You challenge stereotypes. You believe in adding life to your years more than adding years to your life! After all, for You, a career has to be more than just a pay-check. You want to be a part of something bigger than yourself!

You would rather live a life of freedom than live others’ agendas, feel burnt out and stressed with their hectic schedule! It’s time that you listened to your Inner Voice and followed your intuition! You owe yourself a better life!

Poonam Sood

- Certified Image Consultant & Soft Skills Trainer

“After being on sabbatical from my career in finance, When I decided to start something of my own, I thought I was probably taking a “RISK.” The war between emotion and logic started inside me. I went through it for longer than you can imagine. And today, 5 years later, I am glad that I did not settle for something ordinary. To know what life is worth, you must take a risk once in a while and follow your intuition.”

Are you ready to follow your passion and create a true impact?

Factors You Should Consider While Evaluating Alternate Options

Hobbies, Interests & Passion

Align your career with your hobbies, interests and passion to earn a living doing what you love.

Personal Strengths

Make a safe career choice by opting for something which builds on your personal strengths.

Home Based & Self Dependent

Look for options that are home based and self-dependent as cost of office space and employees is prohibitive.

Earning Potential & ROI

Search for an option that has the potential to generate earnings based on your effort & value created; and not on conventional appraisals and tenure of service.

Respect and Credibility

Look for a career that has credibility and respect – a payoff that every professional seeks but achieves only after they attain a certain designation and seniority

Risk Tolerance & Taking Advantage of Opportunity

Rewards rarely come without risk. Your ability to take advantage of an opportunity will depend, in part, on your tolerance for risk. Choose an option such that you can afford the risk, financially and emotionally.

“I always felt I lacked an identity and financial independence. There was a fire in my belly
to do something of my own. When I found out about Image Consulting and Soft Skills Training,
I knew that this was my calling. ”
