1415 – Fact or Opinion with Strong and Shine’s Meena Kumari Adnani

In this episode of The Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with Meena Kumari Adnani, high performance and business coach, CEO of Strong & Shine.

Meena shares her passion for empowering female business leaders to succeed by following the 3 frameworks of Strong & Shine: Personal Growth, Personal Brand, and Personal Wealth. She talks about the impact on low self-esteem and self-confidence, cultural background, family beliefs and upbringing, and self-cancellation – all of which are obstacles to making you a millionaire.

Like other men and women leaders she admires, Meena encourages entrepreneurs to be driven by their vision – not their background, education, or lack thereof. She shares her belief that failure is not the opposite of success. Failure  is a root of success, if not a prerequisite for it. She says failure is one step closer to success – the glamor behind every success story we hear. She added that if you don't have a desire to succeed, you're most likely afraid to fail.

Meena also provides some practical advice on how to break through to success. She offers individual and group coaching sessions according to the needs of the person or company. She also tackles issues of wealth management, attraction marketing, and optimizing social media presence. Her tagline? To help women get rich.
