Aditi Sharma is on a mission to transform lives. She is presently working as a freelance communication and personal development coach. She helps her clients identify their true potential, understand their inherent worth, and use their skills and experience to create the futures they desire.
Unique selling proposition/ competitive advantage:
Aditi says, “ I am the USP.” Prior to becoming a coach, she was a seasoned sales professional of over 12 years. Her ability to instantly connect, spotlight the "elephant in the room", and create a bespoke solution that in turn helps them achieve their goals is the biggest differentiator.
Challenges faced during the journey:
Aditi initially faced difficulties being a new mom. She felt she had lost her self-worth and mentioned that she went from being an accomplished and recognized sales professional in the events and entertainment industry to being nothing but a mom. She took years to realize that she can do more than wallow in self-pity. Later, she went on to unlearn and learn what she calls “old monkey, new tricks”. She voiced out her needs and ambitions and got the support she needed. In addition, she went on to get certified as a career counsellor (which she did not pursue) and a communication coach. Today, with all her hard work, she is getting recognized for the work she does and being gratified by the people she empowers.
Advice for women entrepreneurs:
Aditi requests women not to give up on their dreams because of relationships. She says, “ Don't undermine yourself just because you can." You are a mom, wife, daughter, and sister today and you will be all that tomorrow too. Those relationships will not change. But it's time you give yourself the attention required to grow and learn, to shine bright and beautiful.”
