The number one item on your wish list?
A flight transporter that could take me across the world in minutes, so I could travel and have short breaks whenever I needed them!
What good deed are you planning for today?
I believe small acts of kindness and social consciousness go a long way — at home, work or socially. Being generous with compliments, putting an end to negative conversations, avoiding food wastage starting at home by teaching the kids… These are just some things I could do today.
A life lesson you could share?
The most painful lessons in life are those that we really need to learn. When you can appreciate them, you grow in emotional wisdom. As a businesswoman, it took me many failures before I could get the ‘formula’ right — but those failures are what helped me reach where I am today.
Your fitness mantra.
A daily workout, yoga and breathing exercises. These make me feel happy, healthy, confident — and unstoppable.
The first thing you thought about when you woke up this morning.
A quick mental run-through of my schedule for the day. 
The app on your smartphone you click on most often.
Pinterest and Instagram.
Your greatest fear.
Losing a loved one…
A way in which you are trying to change your life this year.
To balance my time &between family, work and myself.
Who is your favourite movie character of all time — and why?
Iron Man — he is a ‘real’ superhero to me because he created his own powers.
If you could have your pick of superpowers, what would &you choose?
The powers of Iron Man, of course!
