In this episode, we talk to Nita Patel (Brand & Etiquette Expert) as we discuss how she helps her clients, her latest book, and her art.
**More On Nita**
Born in Croydon, UK, as a child Nita would travel frequently between London and Dallas, attending primary school in both places. She was influenced by American and English culture and her parents’ deep Indian origin. In her formative years being an amalgam of values and mores, Nita would attempt to mold her persona to fit her circumstance, such as disguising her English accent as a teenager in America to avoid the inevitability of teenage harassment. These type of experiences and coping strategies helped to formulate her strong and resilient character.
Through her professional years and prior to her immersion in creative arts, Ms. Patel has over two decades of demonstrated technology leadership experience in various industries specifically with a concentrated focus in Healthcare for 14 of those 20+ years. Her investment in psychology theory and practice is what led her to a deep interest in helping others. As a catalyst, finding additional ways to express her creativity has led her to pursue her calling professionally as an artist for the past 8 years. She has become deeply and passionately devoted to nurturing others and in building their confidence and brand through speaking and consultative practices..
Ms. Patel is also profoundly drawn to matters of a spiritual nature and in sharing her discoveries with others. This, and the pursuit of her art, is what truly feeds her soul, provides a deep sense of fulfillment and reinforces that she is indeed following her heart. Over the years she has also devoted an untold number of volunteer hours to her faith-based organization and has been dedicated to a daily spiritual practice of her own. Her art is inspired by spirituality and from an avid love of traveling, wherein the discovery of new places, cultures, ideas, and ways of life has a direct influence upon her artistic creations.
Ms. Patel is mom to a bright nineteen year-old young man, who is currently attending university, and companion, to an adorable Yorkie – the Patel house Commander in Chief.
