Deepti Sharma has had a busy few years. An entrepreneur who spent her career founding businesses that advocate for female, immigrant and minority communities, Deepti found her NYC catering platform suddenly upended in March 2020 by the pandemic.

Pivoting on a dime, she partnered with World Central Kitchen to feed more than half a million New Yorkers, and then ran for New York City Council to address the broken systems that keep underrepresented communities on the sidelines. She didn’t win, and subsequently joined Barnard University’s Athena Center for Leadership as its first Entrepreneur in Residence to guide students on how to bring their mission driven business ideas to life. All of which is to say that for the past three years, this lifelong builder has been in rebuild mode, iterating and re-evaluating on the way to what’s next.

In this episode of “Your New Life Blend,” host Shoshanna Hecht talks to Deepti about how she’s grown  comfortable projecting confidence (even when it feels uncomfortable), becoming the role model she didn’t have, and the joy of spending time with people she loves – including herself.

Here’s what some of the listeners have to say:
