Meet Aashish, he calls himself “art and culture entrepreneur”. He left his full-time job for his passion towards art. Also, he feel that what he is doing today, he should have started earlier. Now he is fully involved with creating music, singing and performing on stage.
When asked what what makes you motivated and keep going? See what he has to say?
My mother and her dream of seeing me doing something for the nation and in turn for the world, at the same time standing out and making a name for myself… always keeps me going. I’m sure I can still make her proud even when she’s physically not in this world, says Aashish.
Read his full interview and I am sure, he has said lot many things which can motivate you.
Tell us about yourself, what do you like most about your field of work?
I would like to call myself an art and culture entrepreneur and I intend to promote culture, child rights & environment protection through my music.
What I like most about my work is the freedom of expression and the independence in thoughts with which I can create my projects and the influence I create and difference I can make through my songs & music.
Your previous jobs/ventures? What were you doing before choosing this field?
I was a management consultant in few of world’s top companies. And I provided business consulting to other companies either for their new setups or for tweaking their already existing businesses for profitable and efficient working.
How did you land up doing what you do now?
I guess I was always meant to do what I’m doing NOW.. after few years of trying out being in a regular corporate job. I always felt I don’t belong there and I’m wasting my time by not doing something I’m meant to do then this music album happened and now I’m fully into creating music, singing and performing on stage.
If not the current profession, what would you have been?
I would still be writing fat business reports, some of which you may have also referred to for your business. (Chuckles)
What motivates you to keep going?
My mother and her dream of seeing me doing something for the nation and in turn for the world, at the same time standing out and making a name for myself… always keeps me going. I’m sure I can still make her proud even when she’s physically not in this world.
Tell us how a day in your life looks like? Your schedule for a day right from the time you get up till you hit the bed at night.
My day starts with a good workout session followed by a hearty breakfast then I check my to do list for the day which I make a night before and check my mails. Then I start my music practice for at least 3 hours and post that I keep my meetings for the day and evenings are usually either sipping tea with family or playing some sport. I sing for few hours before hitting the bed as that gives me a peaceful sleep.
Any regrets till now? If yes, will you like to share it with our readers?
I should have started my musical journey professionally at least a bit earlier than this when my mother was around.
If you were given a choice of meeting any person you want, who will be that person?
If I’m free to choose amongst the dead ones also I would like to meet Michael Jackson, because he was not just a musician, singer and dancer but he was and still is the biggest phenomenon of music in the world. He created music with heart for the causes he was concerned about and did a lot for the society as a whole. I’d have loved to meet him and hear him live.
What is the biggest misconception that you think people have about you?
People who know me they know me very well but who just meet me once I think they think I’m a bit of a snob but truly I’m not that at all just that I don’t open up so easily with people but once I do they know me inside out.
Any message that you want to send to your readers?
I just want to say to all my readers that passion is something that keeps you going and life isn’t worth living if you are too afraid to live your dream… so dream on and follow your passion… you’ll definitely find your way someday…
