Firstly, can you tell us little bit about your book “Make Yourself Count”?
Make Yourself Count is a book that is primarily aimed at helping people learn about the basics of investments and the factors that one may want to consider before they set out to invest in the stock market. You don’t necessarily need to be a finance honcho to keep up with the book; it is free of jargon for the most part so that utmost value can be usurped by the readers.
Why do you write?
I’ve always felt the need to pass on what I know and to definitely empower people with knowledge; it’s what keeps me motivated to learn more. I’ve also found that in this day and age, because of the internet, it is much easier to pass on information. So, the ripple effect of what a writer tries to convey has a much greater impact.
What do you enjoy most about your work? (being finance specialist)
There really is nothing to not love about the work I do. Everyday adds to the learning curve because we have a chance to work with an array of clients: be it from the not for profit sector, the education field or the manufacturing industry. The diverse clientele gives us deep insight into how market conditions affect varied sectors differently.
What has inspired you lately?/ What was a recent milestone?
I think to go back to Jain University where from I completed by undergrad and to receive a Distinguished Alumni Award from there was a humble opportunity that has inspired me to do more and add more value to the world around.
How can a new writer get started?
The best way to begin is to set a realistic goal for yourself and set out time each day to make progress with your piece.
