PARUL SOMANI

designing silver linings

I believe resilience is the key to building mental strength and living a fulfilling life. As a mother, business leader, cancer survivor, and caregiver, resilience has helped me thrive throughout life's curveballs. My mission is to empower people to better manage stress and overcome hardships by building their inner resilience and inspiring them to create their own silver linings. 

My Mission

My world was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with cancer days after my daughter was discharged from the NICU. I've since realized that the mental strength that helped me navigate that uncertain time, was what had helped me overcome other personal and professional hardships as a mother, business leader, patient, and caregiver. The learnable skills of resilience and positive thinking helped me better endure challenges and stress, and even thrive from them. They enabled me to not just find silver linings in my dark clouds, but also actually create them.

This revelation inspired me to channel my 15+ year corporate career as an MIT and Harvard educated professional into empowering people to better manage stress and burnout, navigate uncertainty, and overcome challenges by building their resilience and helping them design their own silver linings.
