Mrs Shilpa during her talk highlighted the importance of branding and transformation. She said that while marketing a product we pay a lot of attention to its quality, packaging, price value etc. But we do not follow the same for ourselves.
Mrs Shilpa shared her personal life story and the turning incident in her life with the audience. She said that marriage and motherhood is the beginning of new life for every woman. She mentioned that one should have a good support system with whom one can freely share ones emotions, feelings like one’s mother, sister or husband. Such trusted advisors can help overcome all the challenges that one faces in one’s life.
She went on to advice on how one can transform oneself from what one is to what he/she wants to become. She emphasized that we should observe others and learn from them. At the same time, she advised that one should not blindly copy others. She highlighted that it is very important to maintain one’s originality.
Speaking about the challenges that one faces in transforming oneself, she said that people shall try to discourage you and pull you back. She said that one should not pay attention to what people are saying and move ahead in life to achieve what one wants to achieve. She said that in life, people can guide you, motivate you..But it is finally up to you to reach your destination /goals.
