Lessons Revisited: Lessons From Our Mothers
This week, Komal revisits a Mother’s Day episode she recorded last year about the lessons we have learned from our mothers. “I am bringing you into my relationship with two important women in my life, my mother (Ma), and my maternal grandmother (Nani Ma). I asked and recorded them sharing about the lessons their mothers taught them. It was the first time I’d ever heard my grandmother speak about her own mom, Ama. It was so beautiful and so funny.
Inspiring and motivating!
Everything Komal Minhas produces inspires me, and her podcast is no exception. She’s a potent combination of excellence, authenticity, and vulnerability, which she communicates in a warm and inviting way. The fact that she’s a self-starter and has accomplished so many big goals at a young age despite having gone through chronic illness is especially inspiring to me as I have a similar story. I look forward to her podcast whenever I need a little boost of inspiration.
Empowering and useful
Komal’s deep dive into self doubt in her latest episode helped organize my own mind around the self doubt that I’ve been feeling. She is an amazing speaker and I her voice is soothing and confident. Highly recommend!
Intentional, Powerful, and Thought-Provoking
Each week’s podcast has seemed to align with all that I am experiencing in life right now. I find myself thinking that this is made exactly for me, but honestly, Komal’s podcast is made for everyone. Her ability to convey her thoughts and talk about the lessons she has learned is so powerful. I am able to transfer everything she has experienced and learned to what I am experiencing in my life and truly reflect on the changes I want to make in my life while celebrating all my successes. Thank you for doing this and sharing your stories and the stories of your guests with us.
