Q and A with Deeba from Punjab, Pakistan
“If you truly believe in yourself, and if you’re willing to put in the work, then you will get what you want.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I have always been interested in helping others learn how to be more successful in their careers, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized how much value there is in coaching. I know what it’s like to be in a position where you don’t know how you’re going to achieve your goals. It’s hard to keep up with everything when you don’t have the tools or resources that are needed to succeed at something. I believe that coaching is a powerful way for anyone to reach their full potential, regardless of their current state. In order to help others achieve this, I offer both one-on-one coaching sessions as well as group coaching, workshops, and training. My goal is to create a space where you can learn from other people’s experiences, become more knowledgeable about your own body language and mindset, and continue growing into a more confident person.
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: I grew up with enough privileges to have a good education, but my parents never gave me all or everything I wanted. I always knew I had to work myself for my wishes. I started teaching younger kids when I myself was in 8th grade. Since then, I have been related to teaching and coaching in one way or another. Before I started my own business coaching, I worked as an executive assistant for 6+ years. During those years, I was mainly working with coaches and taking their workload while they grew their businesses. I had been through the journey of coaches with success after success and with those who failed again and again. This gave me true insights into what works and what doesn’t. Now I am able to differentiate the patterns in the businesses that would lead to fully booked launches or just crickets. I was underpaid and overworked, but the knowledge and experience I gained from all those years are so much more valuable. Some of my clients trusted me fully with the systems that I wanted to implement while working as an executive assistant. They made $7k, $8.5, and $15k in their first month. That was my ah-ha! moment. I knew I could help a lot more people with my experience. And that is what we all are here for.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: If you truly believe in yourself, and if you’re willing to put in the work, then you will get what you want. If you don’t think that this is possible for you, then I’d recommend going back to square one and starting over with a different goal. But if it’s something that really matters to you and is important enough for you to spend time and energy on—if the goal is worth it to make sure it happens—then keep at it!
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: I don’t believe in superiority or inequality between genders, but I do believe in equality of opportunity for both genders. Feminism is about giving everyone an equal chance at success—and this means that everyone should have access to the same opportunities as anyone else. Feminism isn’t about male-bashing or misogyny; it’s about empowering all genders to realize their full potential by supporting each other in achieving equality.
Thank you for reading!
I am passionate about learning and am always taking new courses. I love how learning can keep you challenged and engaged. There is nothing more important than taking care of ourselves and developing ourselves as individuals. One of the best ways to do this is through personal development. It is something that can often be neglected, but it is so important. I am team tea; there is always a cup of tea on the desk.
When I started my business, I wished there was someone to help me organize everything and streamline my workflow. Having a partner to help carry the weight and be a shoulder to cry on would’ve been amazing. They could’ve helped me focus on the right things and prioritize all of the other bright and shiny ideas that can wait. If you need someone to help you with YOUR business, then I’m your girl!
