Women of Inspiration™ Podcast – Nadiya Manji – CEO and Founder, Profound Wellness | 100 Women of Inspiration™ Book Contributor

Born in Karachi, Pakistan to a family of 5, I was a naturally intuitive child who was aware of my unique nature as early as the age of 8. My intuition was my guide and I was sensitive to the emotions of the others around me. My inherent curiosity and intuitive qualities lead me to ask deep and meaningful questions that often frustrated the adults around me. I felt rejected and ostracized. Some people, however, were fascinated by my gift and clairvoyant ability to connect with others. I was fortunate to live in an entrepreneurial home, gaining my business sense, while watching both of my parents work hard to support our family. Through these values, I saw my father start from working at a flour mill to, years later, attaining his dream of owning a flour mill. My upbringing planted the seeds of my entrepreneurial spirit laid the groundwork for seeing resilience and consistency in action.
