“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” — J.K. Rowling

Amidst all the stress and uncertainty we faced in 2021, i also leaned into some great reads that brought me inspiration and hope.

Reading can inspire us, enlighten us, and allow us to live inside a story that’s completely different from our own. And amidst all the stress and uncertainty we are facing in 2021, we also leaned into books to bring us joy and inspire us to be more resilient.

Bonus: Send Unlimited Emails for Free

The truth is that email marketing can either be a waste of time or an incredibly effective strategy to boost conversions and increase brand loyalty.

Worldwide, we send and receive more than 306 billion emails daily. And that number continues to increase every year. Over 90% of people that use the web have an email account, and a majority check it multiple times per day.

And email marketing is incredibly effective. McKinsey & Company reports that email marketing can produce 40 times better results than social media. …


“To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles.” ― T.F. Hodge

“This is so frustrating!”

If you say that more often than you would like, then you must do something about it.

We all know the feeling of frustration and it is not a single bit pleasing. We get frustrated over several things and in worse situations, if all of them happen together then hell breaks loose. We are frustrated when we are falling short to meet our goals or when someone else is failing to meet the needs. In short, things are simply not working out and in worse situations, we might not even know why.

This feeling of frustration…

“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.” -Bishop T.D. Jakes

Do you feel lost in your life, as if something is missing? Does that make you wonder about the purpose of your life?

While it’s an easy question to ponder, we all have been guilty of contemplating over it at some point in our lives. Most of us remain clueless, lost in the world of grey, facing the struggles of adult life to figure out, “What do I want to do with my life”.

Even after we are done with school, have a job and family, we still try to define the true meaning of our lives. It becomes hard…


A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. — Lao Tzu

The Internet is filled with different quotes and phrases that define an “entrepreneur”, but there are really few who truly understand the meaning of it.

But for me, being an entrepreneur does not resonate with building up the next Google or Apple. I define it as anything and everything in life that deals with overcoming challenges in different inventive ways. Someone who is a writer, a painter, or conducts workshops is an entrepreneur…


BE YOU!

For an entrepreneur, or for that matter anyone who aspires to make it big, life is full of challenges. There might be times when you are faced with lots of adversities and would just want to give it up. These are the times when motivational thoughts are all that you would need to propel you to put in your best.

Finding a motivating force in the face of hardships is not always possible. In these situations, inspiration needs to come from directly within. …
