Episode 12: Lockdown deep-dive with Vasanthi Hariprakash
Welcome to another episode of Her Business is Our Business where we Gayathri and Aparna look at Women Entrepreneurship beyond funding – sharing expertise, experiences and tools to grow your business.
In today's lockdown special, we have a freewheeling conversation with Vasanthi Hariprakash, RJ, Anchor, Journalist, Media Entrepreneur, Speaker and Film festival curator.
We begin by hearing about the ways Vasanthi has been coping with the current lockdown situation. We then discuss her career journey and experiences that have made her who she is today.
We also speak about her initiative 'Pickle Jar' during which she mentions some of the memorable moments from the Lok Shaba elections project.
The highlight of this episode is the part where Vasanthi describes her life-changing experience, the consequences she faced for not having a backup plan, how she dealt with it and got back on her feet which she refers to as her 'Second Adventure'
The stories behind her travel reporting and the film festivals are also discussed in detail.
We close this episode with a few pieces of advice from Vasanthi which are:
Adapting to changes can be very satisfying
Keep yourself open to experiences and response to that
Valuable ideas can come from anywhere even from areas you have not thought about or expected.
While part 1 of this episode comes to a close with this, we have part 2 coming up with more exciting conversations and stories from Vasanthi Hariprakash. Stay Tuned.
