5 on friday: kiran singh

Every Friday, we will be asking a fellow #girlboss five simple questions about business, the passion behind her brand and what motivates her to get out of bed in the morning.

We invite you today to meet Kiran Singh, a single mum and a multi-award winning entrepreneur. She wears many hats as a lifestyle coach at Design the Lifestyle YOU Desire and an author and interior designer as well as the leader of a local support group for single parents. Her mission is to help mums envision, create & design the life they really want.

1 | When did you consider yourself a success? I have to say when I started getting recognized for my work and winning Awards (10 so far) and I have just been shortlisted for two more.

2 | What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning? Life! Each and every day is amazing, and I am blessed to have businesses that don’t feel like work, they’ve become a Lifestyle.

3 | What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?I would love to learn photography, so I have just signed-up to earn a Mobile Photography Diploma.

4 | How would your friends describe you? Creative, ambitious, strong-minded, very Independent, helpful, supportive and one thing I hear often; having a ‘no-giving-up’ attitude for everything.

5 | What is your favorite quote? "Wherever life takes you, trust your journey."

ding, ding, ding! bonus question | If you could witness any event of the past, present, or future, what  would it be? My second award; Winner Design & Creative Award at Asian Professionals Award in 2014. A Facebook friend of mine had also been shortlisted as a finalist, and everyone (our common friends on Facebook) was cheering on her, rooting for her…while my daughter was the only one supporting me. When the winner (me) was announced, I was stunned and shocked and I think so was everyone else as they must be thinking ‘Who is she?’
