As you live life forward; many many TRAPS will attract YOU. Some people fall into them out of excitement & then spend a lifetime in recovering. One such massive trap is often laid on your road to ‘selecting the right college’ for yourself. There will be crooks and ignoramuses everywhere. Be cautious!

This motivational TEDx video from SIBM, Bangalore is an attempt to share my story of having done a PG in Fashion from NIFT, New Delhi & then going on to become a Motivational Speaker & a Corporate Trainer.
Loouuuu is in the air! Isn’t it? Even if the air quality is as complicated as the complicated relationships in your life?

This Valentine week, I ran this happy campaign about ‘Love, Sex & Relationships’ on my social media. I have canned that as a little presentation for you:
What makes you stand apart when you are looking for a job? Your talents and skills yes. But how do you make those stand out? That’s the bigger question.

And that’s why I am writing this blogpost – to share my two cents on how to write a good resume and CV. I hope you find it of much use. Dig in!
