‘Happiest is the one who’s passion is also his profession’ – I heard this line many times but did not quite imagine it would come true for me.
Image Consultant has forever been an area of interest. Through my career in the hospitality and corporate world, I witnessed first hand the necessity of good communication skills, grooming and proper etiquette, especially as once climbs up the hierarchy and leads large teams. I also understood, to my surprise, that very few people seem to have mastered these arts.
I realised my dream of being an entrepreneur who could ‘make a difference’ after my certification from Image Consulting Business Institute (ICBI). Giving up a senior designation and attractive salary to take a plunge into the unknown was scary at first, but I decided to go ahead with my gut feel once I was mentally prepared to make the shift.
It has been a wonderfully interesting journey and I have discovered strengths I did not know. It is a great feeling to be able to select the kind of work I want to do and also spend quality time with my family and friends, something that was just a dream three years ago. I have refused some incredibly lucrative job offers and could not be happier with my decision to do what makes me happy.
My greatest achievements have come in the form of corporate clients whose executives have grown in confidence and effectivity after my interventions and look forward to more.
