#WomenAtWork – A home-baker

I am a home-baker.

Like a bright light, this came to me when I tried baking a cake three years ago.

Stints as a fine arts teacher and then in the corporate world,

my kitchen proved to be my new office and happiness unfurled.

I bring together the science and art of baking,

I challenge myself and pour creativity into what I am making.

A supportive family and a husband who is encouraging,

people I have around are a blessing.

My work brings me respect and appreciation,

hard to resist the independence and financial temptation.

I utilize my strengths and keep negativity at an arm’s length.

An empty mind is a devil’s workshop,

there are times when I bake non-stop.

The key to success is hard work,

the recognition that comes along is a perk.

Find your passion and give it a go,

Stay true to it and do what you have to do.

In my business, I keep charity and work separate,

And then honesty and transparency never have to wait.

My name is Jyoti Arora and I am a home-baker.

Today is edition #16 of #WomenAtWork, a photo feature on this blog. If you are interested in participating, please read the inaugural post and join by adding your post below. I would love to see your take on the tag. 

I have known Jyoti for a long time. As it happens with so many acquaintances, I never got the chance to know her. When I started interacting with her this year, I realized how inspiring she is with all that she does. In her own words, ‘If there’s a recipe for success, it all starts with picking the right ingredients and using the right recipe by just igniting the idea, taking actions, mixing up with passion and belief and lastly add a dash of perseverance.’ 

Jyoti – Thank you for inspiring all of us. Readers, don’t forget to check out Jyoti’s page All’about bake n Cake. 

How to link?

  • You can only join with a blog post.
  • It would be great to see a picture of a woman at work and a few words about her. If you cannot share a picture, you can share a picture of her workspace. With a real picture, I would still be able to call this a photo post. 
  • Use the linky to add your post. 
  • Visit others and show some love.
