Dare to Be
14 Fearless Women Who Gave Wings to Their Dreams
"Have you ever considered quitting your high-paying corporate job to strike out on your own, only to be told by your inner voice-and a host of naysayers-that it is a silly dream? If yes, then this book is for you. As senior creative director of India's largest advertising agency, Neeti Palta had everything going for her till she gave it all up to become an accomplished standup comedian. After a remarkable stint as an RJ, Malini Agarwal took the entrepreneurial plunge and is today a media maven with her brand, Missmalini.com. Nothing, not a family keen to get her married nor a dreaded disease, could keep Kanika Tekriwal away from her true calling-her venture, JetSetGo, is redefining aviation. Dare to Be chronicles the success stories of fourteen such women who have dared to turn these pipe dreams into thriving enterprises. None of them inherited businesses, nor were they born into great wealth. These are ordinary women made extraordinary by the single-minded pursuit of their passion, and the courage they showed in the face of adversity. These are their stories. They could be yours."
