Featured : Deeksha Gautham

I cannot believe that October is coming to an end, which means it’s time for part dos of our previous feature. We know that Deeksha started off as Squats and Samosas, a fitness coach while juggling a 9-5 job. She moved on from fitness coaching to biz coaching about 6 months ago and now solely contributes her time to entrepreneurship coaching.

This is part two of the questions and answers with Deeksha. Continue reading “Featured : Deeksha Gautham”


Featured: Squats and Samosas

I’m a little late with this post because I am to blame. I have been slightly busy and mostly a procrastinator. But let us leave that behind and focus on the amazingly motivational, Deeksha Gautham, formerly known as Squats and Samosas on Instagram. She also has a Facebook group called ‘Fearless Boss Ladies‘ where she consistently uploads new content.

She was working in the tech industry in San Francisco, that paid her well but not enough to feel free and happy. She quit her job about 6-7 months ago and now freelances by coaching other women entrepreneurs or women seeking business coaching. How she transcended from fitness to business will be revealed in the continued post as this is a two-part feature.

Let’s look at what Deeksha has to say about some of my naive questionnaires regarding her fitness coaching days. Continue reading “Featured: Squats and Samosas”

Saini, a fellow schoolmate and now an avid trekker who juggles her work life and desire for hiking by constantly being on the move very generously agreed to answer all my questions. She balances her 9 to 5 routine and still manages to head out of the city almost every weekend to places that are breathtaking and to be honest seem very unrealistic. I was stunned at some of her responses and at some, I could only nod in affirmation. Her passion fueled by enthusiasm is what drew me towards doing this short post. Let’s see what she said over my queries. Continue reading “Featured: Girl on The Mountains”

I do this every day, and you should too!

Lately, I’ve been feeling a little too much about myself. We’re all accused of being extra, being too concerned with our own problems and probably just worrying about ourselves. But it is not wrong. Not at all. Do not let anyone tell you that your concern for yourself is a guilt trip. It’s a better way to be a better version of yourself.

10 things to do when you need a spark

In my last post under the ‘Life’ category, I talked about how staying in is not a crime. Basically, no one has the right to badger you around just because you prefer being at home sometimes instead of engaging in social conventions. But, if you’re someone like me, who has limited time to themselves over a weekend and want to make the most of it, you’ll always find yourself short of motivation. You’ll outweigh the pros and cons of doing what you love and taking rest (practically lazing while reading a book). So how to gather inspiration to keep ahead of your schedule?
