Season 1, Episode 5

It’s never too late to start something new

with Roshni Mahtani

This week I sat down with Roshni Mahtani, a modern day rebel in every sense of the word. Roshni’s a captivating storyteller and is an expert in quite a few different fields.

After 9 years of studying architecture, Roshni began to question whether she wanted to continue down her current career path or if she would be more fulfilled by applying her creative and analytical skills within other industries. After much analytical thinking and careful planning, she took some time off to change fields, retrain, and relocate.

I really admire Roshni’s analytical approach to changing her career trajectory; her shift was calculated, strategic, and ultimately felt more like an appropriate next step rather than a big career leap. If you’re currently considering a change of direction with your career or other elements in your life, this episode may provide takeaways for building a framework around thinking about job transitions and guidance on figuring out when the time is right.

As Roshni says in the episode, nothing you do is a waste of time, especially if you can focus on experimenting and learning rather than succeeding.

Roshni recently started a new role as a UI/UX Designer at New Day. Her first day was actually as lockdown began in the UK, so I was interested to hear how working remotely has impacted her experience of starting a new job.

I like to say yes to random activities, lectures, anything really and that’s helped me come into everything with an open eye and not focus so much on succeeding, but on learning and experimenting.
