#PowerWomen Nirathi and Sheila from Rhythmaya

100

Every week I receive suggestions from readers on women to feature for the #PowerWomen series on Social and Style. Many of you request that I feature local entrepreneurs and small business owners. Thankfully, I didn’t have to look too far to find inspiration. Nirathi Rao Kalavapudi and Sheila Oak Maggin run DC’s most sought after dance company – Rhythmaya. These ladies teach classes, run a performance troupe, and created the first prenatal workout inspired by Bollywood, Bollywood Bellies! Sheila is one of my best friends and a true power woman. With a full-time job and soon-to-be mommy, Sheila handles the pressures and dedication of running a dance company with ease. Nirathi is one of the most dynamic women I know. With two young girls and a third on the way, Nirathi’s passion for dance and the arts comes through in how she runs Rhythmaya, teaches classes, and performs. Learn more about the first #PowerWomen duo featured on Social and Style!

#PowerWomen – Meet Divya Gugnani – Serial Entrepreneur

Divya Headshot 3

When I started the #PowerWomen series, I never thought it would strike such a cord with readers. I always wanted Social and Style to be a platform to inspire women to live their best life. Through my interviews with women who are making it happen, I’ve noticed there are qualities that most Power Women have in common. Serial Entrepreneur Divya Gugnani has all of these qualities and then some. From learning that everything doesn’t have to be perfect to starting a business to balancing family, mother-hood, and her career – Divya is one of the most inspiring women I have met. While Divya is smart, successful, and beautiful – she is also honest, truthful, and to-the-point. I really enjoyed chatting with Divya and hope her journey will resonate with you.
