30 Secs With Divya Parekh

If we only had 30 secs to get to know you. What would you want us to know?
We all desire love, happiness, and success — yet many of us live life only on the surface. We are buried under fears, disbeliefs, judgments, worries, expectations, assumptions, and habits that inhibit us from achieving excellence and success, as well as experiencing happy and fulfilling lives. As unique individuals, it is important to understand our specific way of approaching life and our ability to change and adapt to any circumstance. This understanding allows us to better relate to others, which is the key to professional and personal growth. Implementing NOW Power© allows each of us to develop and grow the relationship with self and others, make the best choices, and empowers us to dissolve the gap between ordinary and extraordinary. NOW Power© is saying yes to success and a meaningful life when you:
• Experience life with mindfulness
• Say no to excuses, judgments, and anything that holds us back
• Aligns your dreams, cores values, and actions to work towards a greater good.
• Give with grace and gratitude.
Remember, you shape your life by what you do and what you don’t do. It is within your power. It is your choice. Say ‘YES’ to yourself and others!

Among my professional recognitions are having Women of Distinction Magazine, a magazine division of the National Association of Distinguished Professionals, feature me in one of their issues. Worldwide Branding recognized me as VIP of the Year in 2013 for showing dedication, leadership, and excellence in leadership coaching. NAPW acknowledged me as a VIP Woman of the Year in 2014 for outstanding leadership and commitment in coaching. Additionally, Continental Who’s Who named me as a Pinnacle Professional in the field of coaching and consulting in 2015. I was awarded Home Town Hero by Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial for contribution to improving the quality of life for families in our community.
I love doing something creative that might be gardening, doodling, baking, and coming up with fun dance moves. I love spending time with family and friends, especially friends with cute dogs. I love playing with dogs. Meditation and nature are the food for my soul. When I am not doing any of these things, I like to read, listen to music, travel, and hike.
Build a momentum for “Make Your Message a Movement.” Make Your Message a Movement is a book writing platform for leaders, achievers, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations to magnetize their message to expand their reach. The underlying philosophy is that there are no small roles and each of us has a part to play. What a lot of people don’t realize is how easy it is to give. Giving doesn’t always involve money or time. Giving is sharing your gifts with grace and gratitude that neighbors, the community, and the world may benefit now, tomorrow and beyond. It is about creating a bedrock of positive impact on others in everyday life and beyond. That gift can be a smile, a kind act, leadership, a book, a podcast, articles, videos, philosophies, products, or services that leave their mark on people and get passed on across generations.” I’m thrilled to share that we donate a portion of the proceeds from Make Your Message a Movement books to Kiva. Kiva.org is an international non-profit with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Kiva celebrates and supports people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.
