A Successful Businesswoman

Arti Pandey
Managing Director, Rio –Learning

Having been born to a modest middle class family in a small town in the mountains, there were obvious expectations attached to her, and for some time she too believed in them. She was to be a doctor. Then she came to Delhi for her graduation. The big city fueled big dreams and she broke tradition by opting for an MBA instead. She was placed with a Content company and while working through the initial couple of jobs, she fell in love with the world of content, and here she is today, talking to you as a possible influencer, running her own company in content solutions.

A professional who loves to walk the extra miles to achieve life’s best, both professionally and personally, ensuring no compromise on her human values ever.

Here’s what she says to every woman:

What do you attribute your Success to? What has been the driving force in your life?
“Sustainable growth and the ability to give back to the society is what I would associate to success. The need to prove myself and take decisions worthy of notice, has been a constant driving force in my life.”

How did you get where you are today, and who/what helped you along the way?
“Sheer hardwork got me here, along with the unrelenting force of my co-workers. A few of these people are an integral part of my life as they chose to follow me across organisations and are now the key players in my own setup.”

Which woman inspires you and why?
“My mother. The quiet dignity with which she has lived her life never ceases to amaze and inspire me. Her grit and determination in times of adversities has shaped the way I look at challenges. I hope I become more like the person, the woman that she is.”

How do you maintain work life balance, given your current engagements?
“Though I’m a workaholic, I take out time for my passions, the biggest of which is spending time with my near and dear ones.”

What holds you back? How do you let it go?
“If I really want to go for something, nothing can really hold me back.”

What keeps you awake at night?

What will be the biggest challenge for the generation of women behind you?
“The upcoming generation, be it men or women, seem to lack patience and perseverance. They want too much too soon. This sense of hurry might just be their biggest weakness and a challenge to overcome in a world filled with deadlines and overwhelmed with the need for speed.”

What advice would you give to women who want to succeed in life?
“Success is a relative term. Someone else’s success is not and never will be your own. Find your own success and own it.”

If someone wants to contact you personally, please share the details.
