Another beautiful day and another beautiful mompreneur sharing her journey,vision and mission with us on the blog.
Blogging with all it’s techie stuff is basically creation.Biz is also creative.Ultimately the plan has to be created.Anything you create gives you the creativity rush.
Our right brain activities are mainly creative. When people enjoy creating they start using a part of the brain kept normally dormant.
Interestingly a regular person uses only 10% of their brain.The rest 90% lies unused ,shrinks with age.This is a very popular urban legend. It gives us hope .Hope of immense potential for improvement.
So if you are a mompreneur and a creative person you are using more of your brain everyday than most people do ,in their entire life.
How’s that for a little food for thought?

Nothing could ever be as important to me.
What services do you offer as a Dietitian?
I am a freelance dietitian and provide online consultations, make meal plans and also write various articles related to foods and nutrition.
I chose dietetics because I love the idea of using diet as a means to improve health.
You must be wondering, ‘why I didn’t do it full time?’
I have travelled a lot after marriage and by the time I planned to work, we moved to a different place.
After certain point, didn’t want to go out and look for jobs which suited me and my family as wanted to be there with my girls too.

I am a creative person and passionate about dancing.
I started my dance school Kreative steps to follow my passion.

Needless to say I am very passionate about dance and I always say dancing is my life and music is my soul.
Now you know, I am the dancing dietitian 🙂

I write for parents, moms, and anybody who is interested to know about Nutrition.

I will say writing
is a passion that runs close behind motherhood!
Give us your favourite quote Deepa
I strongly believes in the adage,
“Make your passion your profession and you will never regret”.
I am one of those lucky ones who are able to follow their passions. I am lucky to have a husband who has always supported me and my decisions.
It’s not easy as it sounds but if you are not happy with what you are doing in life, it’s better to give your passion a shot!
