It’s one thing to follow a career based on how lucrative it is. It is another to follow your heart and create a career based on how much value it adds to the world.
In the fifth episode of The Brown Box podcast hosted by Rani Jeyaraj, created in collaboration with eShe, we have a discussion with two successful media entrepreneurs on the subject of following your passion and creating a new professional path driven by the will to do good.
Suparnaa has more than two decades of experience in media but has made a conscious decision to focus on the positive narrative and move away from sensationalism.
Tanu Ganguly was a digital and broadcast media senior executive at NDTV for 18 years as the editor of NDTV Food. She left this lucrative job, the only company she had ever worked for, to set up her own company, Mishry.
Mishry is a food review website that taps into the experience and knowledge of women, homemakers, mothers, grandmothers and everyone in between to review all kinds of products in the cooking and dining space – from spices, sauces to dairy products and staples like rice, atta and dals.
They talk about their journeys as entrepreneurs and as women on quests to add value to the world they live in.
