The Journey: Early Days to How I Got Here
I started my carrier as a chartered accountant and soon decided to make a change and moved to the fitness industry 20 years back. The goal was not to enter into it as a business but more to make a change in my life and the lives of others. Those days body builders were trainers and I wanted to change that and became Andhra Pradesh's first certified trainer.

Insight of My Company and the Role I Play in it
I established Dinaz in 1993. It was a sole proprietor for years. In 2007 we be became a pvt ltd company and now my husband and I are the two directors. I am the managing director and he is the ED. I have a great team to work with. However I do lead from the front whether it is training or business processes. I am the brain behind all new programs. I am still a hands on trainer and train a lot of people everyday.

Decisions That Mattered
To stay in control of my business, to grow at a steady pace and to continue educating. Held in this field to be on top of my industry. However the best career decisions I have taken is to follow my gut feeling.

My Vision as a Leader
My vision is to see my business grow. My vision is to see myself as a leader in this industry and make our country proud . I want to do things that will get India on the world Map where my industry is concerned.

Resolving Challenges Faced as a Women
