CP: Hi Meeta, how are you today?
MV: On top of the world!
CP: You look great! How would you describe your style?
MV: Depends on my mood. I can really take just about anything & add my touch to it and create a remix of any look.
CP: Are you a shopaholic? Where do you usually shop?
MV: I wouldn’t say shopaholic but def have a good appetite to enjoy life. I shop anywhere and everywhere where I can find stuff that fits. Being curvy also means that I have to get fits custom made. Most of my formalwear is mostly custom made and that process is absolutely my fav. The collaborative process with the designer and stylist truly brings out my utmost creativity. It’s so much fun to see and wear the finished product!
CP: Besides being a successful business woman, you are a happy mom. How do you manage your time?
MV: By living a full throttle life. I don’t believe in work-life balance, I love to integrate all parts of my world to feel whole. That feeling is unmatched.
CP: What is you best tip for planning?
MV: Planning for me comes down to one thing, simplify, simplify, simplify. By doing so, the process of planning not becomes an easy task but by peeling away all the layers it usually becomes a matter of having some concise steps in place to follow.
CP: What is the best thing for you being a mom?
MV: The satisfaction I feel is unreal. The most challenging part is the insane amount of patience it takes sometimes, and having an awareness about it.
CP: You are a successful owner of a fitness company, how did you come up with this idea?
MV: It cake from personal struggle. I wanted to lose my baby weight but it all cake down to paper and pen to track my fitness progress. I wanted to change that.
