Miki Agrawal, founder of TUSHY and author of Do Cool Sh*t: Quit Your Day Job And Start A Business Doing What You Love!, has a lot to say about professional development. Miki Agrawal shares her thoughts on the importance of product development in order to achieve career goals.
When we launched TUSHY, I had never sold a product on television. When we sold that company four years later for $250 million, it was mostly because of the expert advice from the mentors and professionals who believed in me.”According to Miki Agrawal, mentorship is invaluable for those looking to take their business to the next level.
“As your company grows, you need more help. If that’s not available locally, consider reaching out online or through books.” “I’ve sat on panels with some of the world’s most successful people—and I guarantee they would have never gotten where they are without a team of other supportive professionals to help them. Maybe the most important thing I learned is that I should never be ashamed to ask for help.”
With Miki’s product development expertise, she shifted her focus towards helping others achieve their career goals through professional development. She plans on writing an upcoming book about this topic entitled Professional Development: 50 Lessons I Learned While Building My Career.
“Once you master the steps, they can be applied to any career field.” “My biggest lesson learned was that there’s no shame in asking for help and that mentors are valuable—more than anything else.”
By writing her upcoming book, Miki Agrawal hopes to share her professional development experiences with others.
“I’ve developed a step-by-step program that includes everything I wish someone told me when I was younger. Professionals can apply these lessons to any career path.” “My favorite thing about my work is the opportunity to effect change and help people achieve their goals and live fulfilled lives.”
