Kavitha Manevannan, Founder at Style Tangent
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Kavitha Manevannan: Often times, I found that snippets of my challenges as a child, the roller coaster that life has been later, and how I overcame them to get to where I am today, inspired many. It gave them the confidence to "choose courage over conflict" when at the brink of critical decision making.
Being a "catalyst" in people's lives, helping them lead a well-balanced, fulfilled and successful life in every aspect, was most fulfilling. I made a bold decision to quit my job when I was right at the peak of my career and took up facilitation and coaching.
