My Golden Balloon, she is on a journey to fulfill her wanderlust and live her life to the fullest. With purpose, drive and an unrelenting spirit to achieve, Aparna professes that she grew up seeking inspiration from her family that always nurtured excellence. She adds “I’m Sindhi and I have always seen my father, grandfather and my mother strive to grow and learn. No one was complacent.” 

“Starting this business and putting myself into it is a privilege and I see it as one. I tell other Entrepreneurs too. If you feel that way about your business and about your mission and what you love then it won’t feel like you’re giving up on anything. All those lunches and family time that I have missed is because I have loved this more, and that’s okay.”

My Golden Balloon is a luxury travel company that curates smart, safe and hassle free travel for the globetrotters. Chasing the inexplicable urge to explore new places and helping fellow travel junkies with her expertise, this company was started by Aparna and her friend, Rob Butler. She says “Starting this business and putting myself into it is a privilege.” She looks forward to the extra hours her beloved side hustle takes over the weekends. “I look forward to waking up before even the alarm goes off on a Sunday morning and work on this,” Aparna adds candidly. Loving your career shouldn’t come at a price and she firmly believes that loving your hustle unapologetically is the key to successful entrepreneurship.  

“If we don’t believe that we are worth something in matchmaking then it’s unlikely that we’ll also believe that we’re worth something in entrepreneurship.”

A self-assured woman who knows her worth is a force to be reckoned. On drawing comparisons between matchmaking and entrepreneurship, Aparna says “You ask for what you want and you feel you deserve it. And those two parts together make up self-worth. You need both of those parts. You need those in business. You need those in matchmaking.” Knowing your worth is of paramount importance states the assertive Entrepreneur.  

“There is this generation of women who are about my age or maybe a little younger, who were taught, even in Indian households, to be anything they’d want. What someone forgot along the way was to teach their brothers and cousins that they need to cheerlead and support those women.” 

The modern Indian woman is nurtured with education, ambition, values and love. They aren’t fed white little lies of a prince charming rescuing them on a white horse anymore. They are taught to dream and be their own knight. And rightly so Aparna highlights that the real problem is not the ambitious working women, the problem is the lack of understanding that stems from  the society which didn’t enrich itself with equality yet. She further adds “If every young boy was taught what these young women were doing then we wouldn’t have this huge divide.”

“Even if it is outside of your career, outside of your side hustle, or outside of your comfort zone, just say yes and try it. You could fail miserably. And I wish both women and men took these chances for themselves and not for someone else or profit, but for their own self-growth, path and their journey. Because you never know what’s gonna lead you to the next step in your life.” 

Aparna is an adventure seeker who doesn’t shy away from saying yes. She exclaims that trying new things has given her abundant opportunities in life. “I don’t have that huge fear of failure. So I try all kinds of new things,” she adds whilst sharing that she is currently working on her book proposal that will entail her crazy experience from the Indian Matchmaking saga and what makes Aparna this woman the world has come to know, like and admire.
