    It's not all about the food. Her experiences also enrich Palak's story as a mother and an influencer. We discuss her approach to balancing these roles, maintaining creative energy, and the importance of staying true to what you love.

    Balak leans on this learned resourcefulness in many of the recipes you find on her blog and in her debut cookbook, The Chutney Life.

    Finding Fulfillment: The Power of Pursuing Your Passion as a Mom with Dr. Puja Shah

    Can you imagine making a drastic career shift from the scientific field of dentistry to the creative realm of authorship? Dr. Puja Shah, our guest for today, made that very leap and found a passion that was not only fulfilling but also transformative. She's here to share her intriguing journey and how she came to understand that passion isn't something you can predict or plan – it's something you stumble upon or engineer.

    Fulfilling one's dreams can be challenging, especially when juggling motherhood. Listen as Puja shares her unique strategies that helped her overcome creative blocks and confront guilt associated with pursuing personal interests. She found a way to weave her passion into her family life, teaching her children that you can be more than one thing and that joy can be found in pursuing your passions, even if they don't transform into a career.

    We don't just discuss passion. We dive deeply into topics like control, self-love, and trust. Puja opens up about her struggle with control – how she had to let go of it and replace fear with trust to find a new sense of order in her life. She emphasizes the significance of self-love, awareness, and understanding in the process of relinquishing control.

    Get ready to be inspired as you join us in this conversation filled with profound insights, stories of personal transformation, and pearls of wisdom that will stir you to pursue your own passions.

    About Dr. Puja Shah

    Dr. Puja Shah is a visionary poet who shares her voice through written and spoken word, guided meditations, and teaching. Born in Queens, New York to Indian immigrant parents, she defied teachers who questioned her English skills by winning countless poetry and short story awards in her youth. She is a doctor of dental medicine and has completed over a dozen trainings in various forms of yoga, meditation, and ancient wisdom. With over 10 years of nonprofit experience and a long public health career, she has aligned with girls rights awareness causes for her triple award winning debut novel, For My Sister.

Inspiring and relatable podcast for working moms

Hi all,

I highly recommend this podcast for all working moms, to be moms, and anyone in general. The content and stories are very relatable and motivational. It has allowed me to truly pause and think about things I don’t usually make the time for like what are my values, what are my goals, and why does this matter? I believe this is helping me get closer to figuring out what my purpose is and how I am going get there.

Thank you!
