“Financial freedom is the freedom from fear”

To all the young women out there reading this, first of all Hello & Happy Women’s Day! I am so excited to welcome you here!

Let me begin by introducing myself. I am Shilpa Jain, a Head Hunter by profession and a Lawyer by education. Although I studied law, I didn’t end up practicing it even once. Surprising, isn’t it? I grew up in a generation where there weren’t many options given to you. While the options certainly did exist, it was common knowledge that you had to choose one of the three pre-destined, cookie cutter options regardless of your interests. While some did make it to the field they wanted to, most of them remained stuck in their expected roles. The beauty of today’s world however, is the vast amount of career options available to everyone and the freedom to choose any and do well in them. Although, this plethora of options can be really overwhelming.

That’s where we come in! As an organization run completely by women and for women, the thing we value the most and aim to strive towards constantly is complete financial freedom for you. We truly believe that attaining financial freedom is the most important thing for a woman. Being financially independent is being independent as an individual, no matter the circumstances – whether they are good or bad.

Hence, we aspire to be with you through every step of this beautiful (sometimes rocky) journey. It may not be easy, but it will definitely be worth it.

We at CareersReviews@ASPIRE will help you explore your career choices, pick the best fit for you as well as help you get into the industry of your choice and belonging!

For all you young women out there, we will be featuring a careers column every week starting April’20. We will feature different career options available across \the board and will draw upon the experience of our highly renowned and experienced mentors to cover this.

Being financially independent not only gave me emotional freedom but also made me the confident person I am today. It gave me the confidence to be unapologetically myself, to understand what I deserve, deny what I don’t and have the freedom to go after what I want.

I cannot wait to embark on this exciting journey with you! See you at the finish line.
