nishaksquared on the #blog today: my thoughts on the #Starbucks #racetogether #campaign, why the coffee giant failed + what you can learn from it: nishakkulkarni.com/why-starbucks-failed. #content #strategy #mission #values #business #purpose #think #foodforthought 6d

nishaksquared A little wired after spending the #afternoon #writing + decided to head out for a lick of #sunshine + #Starbucks. This #conversation snippet between me + my poor, jet-lagged hubby is pretty true to how it usually is: me talking too much #nonsense (with too many #emojis) when I come up for air + him, sweetly tolerant, but to the point. (Oh, and you get a preview of what tomorrow's #blog #post is on!) #working #cheesy #iMessaging #breaktime #Monday 7d

nishaksquared I always feel a little #restless on #Sunday #evening. Thinking about all the things I want to get done in the week ahead + feeling the #excitement build up. So this is me curled up on the couch + (slowly) getting ready for #allgoodthings. (All while watching #SexandtheCity ) #workitrelaxit #beingboss 1w

nishaksquared Finished #MyBrilliantFriend + am blown away by how #personal the #writing is. Just gorgeous. About to start the next one, #TheStoryofaNewName. I usually can't start #reading a new #book the day I've finished one, but since these are part of a #trilogy -- and it's the #weekend -- I'll make an exception. Perfect way to spend a #Sunday #morning. #NeopolitanNovels #ElenaFerrante #bibliophilia #inspiration 1w

nishaksquared Little known #secret about me: I love #church. I'm not particularly religious, but there's something about the #peace + #solitude of sitting in a pew, collecting my #thoughts + saying my silent #prayers, that's intensely comforting, like a hug from my mom. Today after way too long, I made my way to #SaintPatrick's #cathedral + it felt divine. I have such fond memories of going with my mom, lighting candles + just counting #blessings. I'm so grateful that she introduced me to these small #rituals since they ground me in the present. #spirituality #gratitude #NYC 1w

nishaksquared Spent a #productive day at my desk, but my comfy-cozy bed beckoned me to come + do my #BSchool catch-up from under the warm
covers. Result? Catch-up going well, but now so drowsy! Is it possible to be too comfortable? Nah...I blame this very un-#spring-like, wet, snowy, gray, #lethargy-inducing weather in #NYC. #Friday #afternoon #working #learning #likeaboss #fuelingambition #naptimemaybe

nishaksquared when I talk about #content, there are two #keywords I use all the time (just ask my clients!): #consistency + #relevance. consistency is easier to explain, but what about relevance? from the blog earlier this week, my take "on relevance" (nishakkulkarni.com/on-relevance) #storytelling #makeyourownpath #makeitcount #dothework #business #likeaboss 2w

nishaksquared #Morning #pleasures: catching up on some #leisure #reading under my favorite teddy bear-like blanket with #yellow #sunshine as company. You need to take a few moments to relax, even in the morning, in spite of the 1,001 things that must get done. It'll all get done, but the doing of it all is more pleasurable if you feel like you've treated yourself first. #ElenaFerrante #MyBeautifulFriend #gettingenergized #beingboss #Thursday 2w

nishaksquared It's oh-so-quiet + #gray along the East River. Perfect time + place to #think + free my mind. This is how I get some of my best #ideas. #walk #meditation #neutralzone #NYC #nofilter 2w

nishaksquared what does it mean to be a #gratefulgeek? it means you take notice of + appreciate all the beautiful details in your life: people, places, things, ideas, moments. nothing is too big or too small. it's all about recognizing your #blessings so that you can live mindfully, with more #motivation, #inspiration + #purpose to be the best version for yourself. start your own #gratitude #practice + see how it changes the way you see the #world + all its gorgeous #possibility.

nishaksquared Instant replay from the #blog earlier this week: #Selling with #Soul. As Daniel H. Pink says, selling is human. Let go of your preconceived notions that sales + selling is sleazy. Embrace that + bring more #humanity to your #work, so that you can be a better #storyteller. Read more here: nishakkulkarni.com/selling-with-soul #dothework #sellproud #makeyourownpath 3w
