How am I breaking the bias— I once read somewhere that changing the whole world is not one’s responsibility. Therefore, rather than taking “break the bias” at a larger scale, I am doing it just by setting a right example for my two lovely daughters. I have been showing them live examples of-
Nothing can stop you doing from what you wish to do, just the Will is required, rest are all excuses. That there is always a hope for new start in life.
You can fulfil your dreams at any point given in life.
A women is self sufficient, when it come to be playing different roles in life and yet can achieve things she has planned.
I am breaking the bias when I receive messages from women in my network and they say “You are really an inspiration”.

How Aashmeen Munjaal Break the bias on this International Women’s Day Sneak a Peek

After playing the role of a successful beauty entrepreneur for more than two decades, Aashmeen has now widened her horizons and teaches the “art of being” using powerful tools of metaphysics.
By practicing and using her knowledge of ontology, Aashmeen aims to reach out to people who need motivation and direction in life to accomplish their dreams and fulfill their desires. She is a certified ontologist for the past ten years, and currently imparting the knowledge of the quantum universe through her online classes and academy of Magic Words.
Breaking the Bias by Ontologist Aashmeen Munjaal
Breaking the bias is not only about your personal life, professional life, or social life. It is about your sentimental and emotional life as well. Breaking the Bias is also going beyond the norms and the old patterns that exist in society, which tells us about what we should do and what we cannot do. It is going beyond your boundaries while discovering yourself and knowing yourself. We, humans, are unlimited souls. But we have put limits on ourselves that are created by our logical minds and logical boundaries. I am proud of myself that I can go beyond my boundaries!
Whenever you are confident, you are being yourself. You are not being anyone else. You are not hiding under the facade. Whenever you are yourself, there is no bias. Bias comes when you are comparing between two things. But there is no one out there. Whenever breaking the bias, it is about going beyond any comparison and multi-ness; and it is all about oneness. So, me being one with my own self is breaking the bias!

Breaking the bias:-
I have started my own company at a young age and have always worked very hard to make it work.
When I started my work initially I was advised by a lot of people to hire a C.E.O to help me manage my work and this suggestion usually stemmed from the fact that I was a young woman starting out on my own, my family however always believed I would be able to manage on my own and this kept me going.
People in my company are always hired because they work hard and not because of their gender. I have tried to inculcate this practice from the very beginning that the people we hire are there because we think they can do well.

Need to teach financial values to young children, Good Good Piggy

Good Good Piggy is an Ed-fintech incipiency featured in Shark Tank India Season 1 Occasion 13 that teaches kiddies about plutocrat operation. It featured in Shark Tank India is a unique thinking incipiency which is started for the first time in India.
By, Purva Aggarwal, Founder of Good Good Piggy, an Ed-Fintech Company
Pocket money and piggy banks have been used for years to impress upon the children the importance of managing money. However, this practice is usually done with teenagers and with very little to support this learning. Children learn about the transactory value of money very early on in their lives. So why do parents wait to teach them about money? The age-old argument about preserving their innocence doesn’t quite cut it. They’re already learning about money from their environment, if not implicitly. By introducing the topic, parents are not taking away any innocence but providing context to what they are already seeing all around them.
There are many reasons why parents should address this topic early on, like the following:

Understanding of Consequences

Children need to learn that not only does money have value to buy things but there are financial consequences to all spending decisions. This is a crucial part of their development.

Decision making

Children at an early age learn the art of decision making. This affects them in every sphere of life and is set at an early age. It would be helpful to guide this learning when the child is impressionable and still developing these core habits.

Understanding the value of work

Children need to understand that nothing comes free. The things they buy and the gifts they get are results of hard work, not handouts from an ATM.

Delayed gratification and impulse control

These values are very important in anyone’s life. They affect all types of decision making and can cause severe life changes. Hence, the need to enforce these values early on and set the right foundation for the future.
Many parents feel like this conversation is too stressful to bring up with their little one. However, this stress is felt by the adults who are struggling with the issue, not the child intent on learning everything about the world around them.
Money is an integral part of life which affords us the right education, a good environment and social security. Therefore, money management is not a life skill that should be ignored or put off. So when is the right time to start impressing the right values about money? Right when a child stops putting it in their mouth.

Now is the time to realize your dreams

Shivani always anticipated a normal life just like any other girl hailing from Delhi. She never had very high aspirations or life-sized dreams. She even got what she ever hoped for; a quality education, a promising career, a lovely married life as a working woman as well as a homemaker and two wonderful kids. But then life does not always work the way you expect it to. It has its own ups and downs. It sometimes shatters you completely from inside with a cruel blow and then uplifts your spirits with a truly amazing and unexpected gift, reviving you with the strength to move on.
That’s the story of Shivani Saxena, a 43-year-old wife, mother, lecturer, homemaker, fitness enthusiast and model. Shivani did her schooling from DAV model school and her Graduation from Delhi University. She also did Teacher’s Training and a Fashion Designing & Merchandising course besides accomplishing her Post Graduation in Textile Science.
Shivani has been married to Saket Anand for 22 years who is a working professional with an MNC. Apart from being a caring and loving spouse, Saketisalso a doting father. Shivani and Saket were blessed with a son, Vedant and a daughter, Saanvi. Just when life seemed perfect and Shivani considered herself fortunate enough to have such a wonderful family, fate had something terrible in store for them. Two years back, seventeen-year-old Vedant was snatched away from them by the cruel hands of destiny in a road accident. Shivani’s world fell apart and she felt as if she will never be able to overcome her grief. But thankfully with the support of her loving husband and her in-laws, she conjured up the strength to fight her anguish and managed to get back on her feet again.
Despite of her attractive looks and pleasing personality, the thought of modelling or participating in a Beauty Pageant never crossed Shivani’s mind until she turned forty. But as someone has very rightly said; it’s never too late to start dreaming. Shivani came to know about the ‘Mrs Delhi NCR’ beauty pageant on social network. She enrolled and was not merely shortlisted to participate but ended up winning the title of “GOODWILL AMBASSADOR Mrs Delhi NCR 2019”.
“I always kept myself well-groomed and fit but it was only after forty that I seriously considered pursuing modelling.  Participating in the pageant was my first step in this direction and since then I have done various fashion shows & photo shoots for magazines, clothing brands and jewellery.”, replied Shivani when asked about her new-found passion.
Shivani gives the credit of her success to her husband and her in-laws, especially her mother-in-law who stood by her for every career choice she made. She says when her kids were young, she took a break from her career to focus on her children but as they grew up, she decided to concentrate on her career again and pursue her own interests. This decision of hers was also supported by her family.
When we asked Shivani to share the secret of her everlasting beauty and fitness, she had the following pearls of wisdom to share, “I have always taken pride in following a healthy lifestyle, I stay away from Junk food and enjoy simple home cooked food. I drink lots of water, I believe in the practice of sleeping early and waking up early. I do Yoga and Aerobics at least 5 days a week, which improves my metabolism and keeps a check on my weight.”
Shivani Saxena stands today amongst us as an embodiment of the quintessential woman whose unyielding and undying spirit motivates us to bounce back no matter how rough life treats us. She is a true inspiration and a living example for our those readers who dream of becoming something in life but either think that it’s too late to realize their dreams or are too bogged down by the tribulations of life. KUDOS SHIVANI!!

But I have overcome my fears, overcome my disabilities, and here I am stronger, more determined to achieve my goals in life. I chose to rise and fight against the deterrents of life in spite of a tough battle with my family. Every time I felt low, I picked myself up and tried again and again and again…
