Meera Virk didn’t think a cup of coffee could change her life. But it did. One afternoon she had a realization she was meant for so much more. She knew that she had to share her gifts and purpose with the universe. She believes that each person’s empowered metamorphosis is essential to living a purpose-filled, happy life.

We want to be living a happy, purpose-filled life! So we asked Meera our favourite questions and had her dish on her views regarding career and networking.

Q: How and where did you form your most significant contacts? How have these changed over time?

When I was heavily involved in the financial industry, networking had a different theme: it was more about ensuring that we were working together for the client. However, in life coaching, this experience really transformed my life! The way I now look at networking is in a more conscious way, where relationships matter and people come first.

Meera Virk - Career and NetworkingQ: What does networking look like in your world? What are some of your top tips for successfully networking in this city?

As a natural connector, I’m always looking at how I can help people be the best version of themselves! You have to be aligned in mind, body, and soul! Be present and whatever you do has to have the intention of awareness and consciousness. I see networking as a way to help people realize their potential.

Q: What advice do you have for the Vancouver woman who is just starting out in her career or considering a leap to a new career?

Find your passion! Don’t get caught up in the day-to-day minutiae and feel that you have to go through the motions to be successful in a dead-end job; or, don’t feel like you don’t have a choice. Be fully aware of what makes you happy and what makes your soul sing! You have to connect with yourself and the career path that fills your cup.

Never under-estimate that something as simple as a coffee could change your life. If you’re not happy with where you are–change it! Of course, it always helps to talk to people in the field that you are interested in. If you’d like to meet and talk to peers and mentors in your industry, sign up for Elletourage now for free!
