I want to be a Bollywood actress! Where do I start? What do I need to become an actress in Bollywood? If these are the questions that keep you up at night, you’ve come to the right place.

Being recognised everywhere you go, having the trappings of luxury, working with superstars on screen and being part of the world’s largest film industry – these are the benefits of an acting career in Bollywood.

More Indian women are interested in pursuing an acting career nowadays because they believe it’s their gateway to fame and fortune. However, getting acting jobs in Bollywood is much more than its glittering veneer.

It’s sweat and toil, wrapped up in the alluring package of fame and wealth, and presented to aspiring actors to lure them to Bollywood’s mesmerizing capital, Mumbai.

Do I Have What It Takes To Be An Actress?

So, you want to be an actress? It is not at all an impossible dream, but you have to be ready to work harder than most people of your age.

The truth is, most celebrities started out playing small roles on television and in the movies before they get their big break.

So if you plan on starting an acting career in Bollywood, chances are you’ll have to endure the same ordeals until a director or executive producer sees that you’re ready for a major role.

If you think it only takes beauty or a Miss India title to get into Bollywood, think again! Just look at the rising stars nowadays and you’ll see that most of them are not what you would call classic beauties.

womens workwear

Indian women are making waves in several professions, and are much more aware of the importance of dressing for success in a business environment.

In the 1970’s and ‘80’s when the number of working women was just about starting to climb the corporate ladder, you’d see a lot of them in professional careers like teaching, banking, and back-office jobs.

If you’re frustrated with the way your clients, supervisors, or coworkers view you at work, you may need a little advice in the fashion department along with some tips to dress for success.

Although it isn’t necessarily fair, women, more than men, have more issues to deal with when looking to dress professionally.

On the other hand, as a woman, you also have many more options than a man, when it comes to dressing for success. These options, though fun to explore, can create some confusion, which is why we urge you to do a little introspection.

Whether you’d like to highlight your skills and professionalism at work, at a business meeting, a job interview, or at a party, you are hosting, consider the tips here to help you dress for success, even before you head for the store.

10 Best Life Insurance Policies In India

Life Insurance

According to a study by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), of the 28.2 million individual life insurance policies (including term life insurance as well as traditional plans), issued in 2017-18, only 9 million were bought by women in India.

A survey conducted by irDAI (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India) also concluded that Indian women bought only 32% of the individual life insurance policies sold in the period of 2017-18.

Another survey by Max Life Insurance found that only 19% of women in metropolitan cities own term life insurance policies, as compared to 22% of men.

The study also deduced that most working women focus their savings on children’s education and family expenses, while their male counterparts are supposed to take care of financial investments.

This needs to change. As you’ve seen in the imaginary case of Karan and Sumedha, women need to take precautions to ensure that they never face such a dilemma.

And, just like her life partner, the woman must take responsibility for her future and that of her family.

Most families today, treat life insurance plans as tax saving tools, purchasing only the amount of insurance required to save on annual taxes.

To make matters worse, people don’t even take the trouble to read the policy documents, or understand their needs before purchasing any insurance policy, which often results in them making the wrong decision.

In this article, we provide valuable life insurance advice to help you learn how to choose the best life insurance policy for your family.

How To Spice Up Your Master Of Ceremonies Script

Master Of Ceremonies Script

An Emcee friend posted a question on our Facebook page, asking where she could find tips to find materials for emcee scripts.

What is an MC or Emcee? The master of ceremonies is the host of a ceremony or event where your job is to be an entertaining and humorous speaker.

As a professional master of ceremonies or event Emcee, playing the role of Emcee means keeping your audience engaged and laughing for the duration of the event.

Being a master of ceremony is not easy as you have to constantly assess the energy of the crowd and keep them laughing and happy with funny anecdotes and jokes. It’s a lot like being a comedian, but with an agenda for the event.

Asking how to be a good emcee is not the right question, because it focuses on yourself and will trigger anxiety. Instead ask, “How can I make the event fun for my guests?” That way you’ll be focusing on them and their enjoyment and not on your own insecurities.

Consider it one of your master of ceremonies duties to learn to relax deeply and let your inner comedian loose with this powerful public speaking hypnosis audio.

While there are a lot of very useful coaching materials for speakers online, it takes a little effort to come up with ideas to spice up your Emcee script and be the master entertainer you are.
