Lipstick Leadership: Play for Inspiration - Shalini Kantayya's Story!

"It is very fun for me to balance what my mother has taught me with what you, Michelle, have taught me. In addition to the many business lessons you have taught me, the lesson that stands out the most in my mind is the lesson of bringing play into the workplace. When I painted with you and watched you bake bread, I saw this whole other side of you. This side did not reconcile at first with the passionate, bold business woman and mentor you had become for me. As we dove deeper into the creative process, it became clear that your painting was like my filmmaking...a calling. As I watched you paint and reflect on my business needs, I saw how you used your art playfully to work through abstract problems and fuel your imagination keeping you mentally sharp. Your lesson of play helps inspire me when I get to a place where creatively I need fuel."
