On this first episode of The Midlife Reinvention, your host, Kavita Ahuja, founder of Power Purpose Play, tells you who she is, why she created this community and podcast, and why you should care!
On this, International Women’s Day 2021, the theme is “Choose to Challenge” and Kavita tells you a bit about her background and why she chose to challenge what was traditionally expected of her, and why she created Power Purpose Play. This community and this podcast brings women in midlife like you together to challenge yourself to pursue your dreams, regardless of your age or circumstances.
Kavita, a 54 year old South Asian woman, born in Kenya and raised in Canada, followed the traditional path encouraged by many of her generation. This included advanced education, earning 2 degrees – in Biology and an MBA, a stellar award-winning corporate pharmaceutical career, marriage of 26 years, and raising 2 high achieving sons. Yet, at the age of 50, Kavita realized that something was missing; she felt unfulfilled and knew she had more to offer the world. She needed to rediscover her true calling, gifts, and what she was really meant to do for the rest of her life. She found that so many other women in midlife had these same feelings – of lack of fulfillment, lack of courage, and choosing themselves last. She decided to change that, and Power Purpose Play was born!
Through telling her own story and interviewing incredible women who have rediscovered themselves and brought their gifts to the world, Kavita hopes to inspire you to take action to do the same. Let’s all choose to challenge, and make this next chapter in our lives the best chapter ever!
