Itch to Switch @30ish

Our story has a voice, published in #LivingLocal, Lifestyle. 

Changing your profession at the peak of your career? How do you deal with the ultimate debate of heart V/S mind. The toughest hurdle for anyone chasing their passion is the fact that they have to get over themselves! Get over the notion of a perfect life, perfect job, and the perfect time to get started.

The first step before you give in to your ‘Itch to Switch’ would be to recognise what is your orientation to work. It will roughly be within the boundary of one of the following:

    •       Job - Your main focus is financial rewards.
    •       Career - You are driven by prestige, power and growth.
    •       Calling - Work is your ‘purpose for life’. 

#Life Hack: Not easy, but its definitely going to be worth it.
No one can give you the right advice, because they will never be you*. Your aspirations and dreams will be questioned by everyone, including yourself. I can best explain this through my own story.
30ish is a personal journey of quitting a fancy corporate job after almost a decade and starting my own blog. When you see someone else going through the same turmoil, you tend to flow with their energy. 30ish is my positive attempt to inspire my readers to ‘Bet On Themselves. 
Your gut will challenge every thing you planned for your future. Some of us stick to our jobs , because according to them 30ish is too late to take a risk. A few of us, jump the bridge and scream 30ish still gives me 20-30 years to experiment and live happier. Its all about your perspective.
Be an entrepreneur if you are willing to feel uncomfortable and evolve continuously. Your life will always be LOADING. Everyone has an inner guidance system. Trust more, fear less.

30ish on YouTube - Oh My Vlog!

We are very protective about the commitment we make to ourselves. 30ish getting on YouTube is a promise I made to myself. Growth is the only option I have.

#LifeHack: Mumbai gives me strength of character, its a reflection of my choices in life. Every city has a word that perfectly defines it, the word for Mumbai is Alive! 30ish getting on Youtube is my most gangster move :D 
My one man army!
Thanks Studio Unplugged for making me sound better than Taylor Swift :D

How did we shoot? I am going to call this section “Shooting, Not Allowed Madame”.
Me : Sir (Cop/Pandu), I want to record a 2 minute footage (Marine Drive)
Cop: Director Kaun? - Me
Cop: Heroin Kaun? Me
Cop: Producer Kaun? - Me (disbelief)
Cop:"Madame, Shooting NAUGHT (not) Allowed". I faced this at every location.
There is a war tactic called guerrilla warfare, where you fight with everything and anything. Face the bullet with a stone, because thats what you have. The locations covered during the shoot are highly guarded, super crowded, imagine how chaotic the shoot must be. I do not have the backing of ‘travel and living’, yet! (someday I wish to) no assistant directors, editors or high tech crew, just an insane desire to take the blog to the next level. #BetOnYourself
Technique of shooting : Hidden cameras, candid shots, natural lighting, no makeup, nothing glossy, Mumbai portrayed in its complete rawness. I wished to look glamorous but every time the cop took a break from his duty, the choice was between the 'perfect look and the perfect shot'.
The purpose of this city is to be the light and its vibe absolutely ELECTRIC. Mumbai is infinite that’s what I wish for 30ish. All my readers are a part of this journey, my only gratification is your love so replace your silent smiles with loud whistles and noisy high fives :)
