Calgary (Rajiv Sharma) : A strong woman understands that the gifts such as logic, decisiveness, and strength are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection, she values and uses all of her gifts, these beautiful words said by Calgary based an enterprenour Sonia Duggal (Ravinder Kaur Duggal) while interviewing with Times of Asia. Sonia Duggal is a successful business woman who is a multitasking and multi-skilled female. She has taxation offices with 10 locations of Max/Protax, in Alberta and she is also a Director of Experior Financial group. She said women today are blessed with many opportunities to explore their passions and make their mark. You can be a homemaker, lawyer, programmer, entrepreneur or astronaut. You can get married if and when you choose, to whom you want, and have a family that takes many forms. The options abound. At the same time, though, as a woman, you can face unique challenges and barriers to getting what you want. The reality is that it can be a harsh and complicated world. Competing demands on your time mean that you have to juggle being a friend, partner, mother, daughter, volunteer, and other roles. Change, personal and societal, is happening at a tremendous rate and information is coming at you exponentially. Overwhelm and burnout are becoming the norm, not the exception. Sonia said parenting styles have also shifted to the point where parents are so afraid of the media-inflated dangers in the world that they suspend reality for their kids. And they have particular fears for their daughters. Many girls get driven around, waited on, have schoolwork done for them, some parents have even tried to negotiate their first jobs, and young women are left without the muscle to do what they can actually do for themselves. They are left doubting their abilities and their judgement and fear trying something on their own. These women and girls are missing out on real life that is often messy, sometimes scary and includes stuff that frankly you don’t always want to do. And missing out on a whole world of possibilities and pride. Sonia said, you don’t have to experience a lack of confidence or fulfilment, or fear or overwhelm & if you learn the essential life skills, you can deal with any challenge sent your way and your career will flourish, your relationships will be stable even your kids will be happy and healthy. By doing all these your goals will be realised and you’ll have the life you want. Sonia Duggal said to become a successful entrepreneur, have a crystal-clear vision of what they want to achieve. They can see the world not how it is today, but how it could be, and work relentlessly to achieve it. Vision helps keep you on track to achieve your short- and long-term goals, without a clear vision, you do not know what goals to set or what actions to take; and by setting a clear vision.
