The One About Being An Asian Female Entrepreneur

In this episode, we’re diving into entrepreneurship from an Asian female perspective.

As kickass and kind humans, I feel that it’s so important to be open to hearing stories from people with different life experiences, and that’s one of the reasons I was so excited to speak to this week’s guest.

We’re talking about some of the cultural stereotypes vs. the realities of growing up as a woman in a Sikh Punjabi household. We’re also diving into inclusivity in business, in the media and onstage… and what we can all to make sure that everyone is represented.

Listen on for:

  • The impact growing up in a strict family can have on your identity
  • How you can find your confidence through the right relationships
  • Our thoughts on challenging social and cultural norms
  • The importance of a clear yes and a clear no
  • The many faces of manifestation
  • Recognising privileges that you may not even realise you have
  • Our thoughts on inclusion and diversity in the event space
  • The most effective way to have these conversations without naming and shaming
