A life destined vs. A life planned

“Dreams are not those that come while we are sleeping. Dreams are those that don’t let you sleep before fulfilling them.”

 A.P.J. Abdul KalamWings of Fire: An Autobiography

I truly abide by these great lines written by Dr. Kalam, and hence kept going and grabbing every opportunity I got and most importantly dreaming all the way through my life. I hold afoot in pursuing my dreams even today.

Relentlessly, I was just another carefree girl who pursued Arts from Delhi University whilst working with Cathay Pacific Airways. Nonetheless, I was a voracious reader and hence surrounded by books most of the times. Having said that, little did I know that my hunger for knowledge would take me places and give me umpteen opportunities to groom and coach people as a career.

Traveling gave me a fresh perspective towards things, a chance to discover my dreams and explore the unknown.

Post my Hongkong based job I shifted to Lufthansa German Airlines for another 5 years. I visited different places, studied different cultures and conversed with people from all walks of life, across the globe. This was probably the master plan, which the universe had made to gradually bring me where I stand today – my own company – Magnolia Image Consulting along with my very quintessential side-business under the name ‘Surabhi Mehta Makeup and Stylist’.

I start with suggestions to raise brand profiles and then intricately work towards a client’s personal branding in detail. I now focus more on tailor-made programs with a holistic approach after considering various aspects from my clients. And the result is the progress of my clientele that can be noticed in my portfolio. You too, will notice the impact you make on those you interact with when you decide to consider my services.

My portfolio boasts selected brides whom I have worked with in the past few years and catered to right from selection of bridal trousseau to enhancing bridal soft skills conducted on a one-on-one basis. For image consultancy segment, apart from wardrobe enhancement and fine dining etiquettes there are other modules offered which can help build confidence. I also offer and have successfully conducted in the past private makeup sessions for interested clients who want to enhance their beauty in the best possible yet subtle way.

My portfolio is the best way to study my services and to know more or customize your requirements; I am just a call away.

Lastly and definitely not the least, I strongly follow these lines by Seth Godin, “Many of us are taught to do our best and then let the world decide how to judge us. I think it’s better to do your best and decide how you want to be judged. And act that way.”
