Smita Mahajan’s most important expectation for a successful mentoring relationship is the willingness to learn new things, to change as per the current social and professional upgrades happening in society/industry. When she was asked that how an entrepreneur can prepare before starting, she said, “Before mentoring anyone, I would prefer that person to have a clear understanding of the area for which she needs mentorship and WHY she needs.”
Two things that Smita Mahajan suggests to every individual are “Progressive Mindset” and “Consistency”. She believes that a progressive mindset help to look at every challenge as an opportunity to push themselves harder towards their goals and learn to evolve as an improved version of themselves. On the other hand, consistency helps to maintain the focus as great archer Arjuna to achieve what one has dedicated to and avoid any distraction which can deviate them from their path to success.
Smita mentioned that things that she learned in this covid situation are Getting back to basics, Giving time to your Family and loved ones, and having a healthy active lifestyle. She said digital transformation took place in everyone’s life in both personal and professional ways. It was able to break the glass ceiling of geographical boundaries and connected the whole world through the internet. Everyone learned to stay connected with anyone in just one click and work from anywhere while being safe at home with their loved ones.
She said, “I, on behalf of the whole Pink Warriors Family would love to see you all supporting our vision in any possible small/big form and help us make this a reality for all women.
