More about Parul

I felt knocked down and burnt out when I got laid off. It wasn't just my pride being hurt as I was an MIT and Harvard Business School graduate who lost her job though. Years earlier, I had been diagnosed with breast cancer while recovering from a c-section, and that healthcare job was the meaning I had created from my cancer journey. As I emerged from my grief, I realized what had empowered me to thrive through past changes in relationships, health, career, and leadership: intentional actions. Living and leading at the intersection of clarified intention and proactive action had enabled me to navigate uncertainty and change, manage stress, get unstuck, and create powerful outcomes throughout my life. This revelation not only guided how I moved forward from my job loss, it became the inspiration for the work I do now. By teaching others the evidence-based mindsets, frameworks, and tools that helped me overcome inevitable change, make the tough decisions, and craft my own life, I empower them to do the same. I hope you'll join me on this mission!
