Welcome to my Lifestyle & Career Micro-Blog. Like my life – it has a bit of everything; What i think, What i know and what i Believe in which can range from anything from Career Coaching, Business, Politics, Social issues, Lifestyle, Relationships and Art.
As i built my digital footing – I realized, I could not bring myself to delete any part of what makes my life, Mine. It’s been a great one and i intend on making every day count – just like we should. This is why my Micro-blog has everything i think about, i talk about, i believe in or i work with – Career, Business, Relationships, Empowering Youth & women, Empowering the underprivileged, Breaking Stereotypes, Social Issues, Counseling and Art.
I micro-blog, because that’s just who i am. I can write pages and pages of stories because i love Charles Dickens (yikes!). But I don’t have the time because of the multiple roles and things i do everyday. I have a lot to say and sometimes its really worth reading (sorry for the self-love). And i really did want to blog, but i didn’t want it to be something i don’t do regularly. So i micro-blog, i write whenever i feel strongly about something. It helps me personally because i don’t hold myself back and it helps people who like to engage with me professionally and personally because sometimes i help them battle a thing or two by giving unwanted advice.
Before anything else though, Lets get acquainted!
I am a home-trained artist. I do art, read or write to unwind. But art is where i found myself. After initially struggling with my primary school education, i found art and it found me. It gave me inspiration and once everyone else started appreciating it there was no stopping me. From competing within the school to global art competitions, art gave me the wings i needed to fly.
But then i never really pursued art as a career and found myself in a business school. I landed my first gig in Human Resources and then never looked back. This profession gave me the opportunity to work with the best people, mentors and friends throughout Pakistan, the Middle East, Europe and United States. It gave me exposure i never imagined i could have. So much so, that after a good, strong eight – nine years of a rewarding Career, i decided to go rogue and build my own consultancy start-up. I am happy to report that this is our third year of service for Mushawar, in Human Resources, Content Writing & Web Development Consulting Industry and i have two excellent teams working in two continents; Pakistan and London.
I have 10 years straight experience working with people from Information technology, Retail, Media, Manufacturing and Oil & Gas Industries. From working with C- Level Management, Senior and Mid Level Professionals to Young adults in Trainee and Associate Programs – I have worked on every level of hierarchy within an organization. This is probably why it helps and enables me to relate to a wider audience when it comes to Career & Management Advice. My experience as a Headhunter, Employee Engagement Specialist and a HR Operations Expert has helped me immensely in building my network over the years in Pakistan, Middle East, USA, UK and Europe.
This blog and coaching is my way to give back to people and to stay connected. I am also hoping that it will be a place where i can finally showcase my art to the world. This is me opening up myself to the world and i hope the world is going to Hi-five me back!
