Writer Sandhya Jane on changing with the times, balancing work with parenting and a message for aspiring writers. Oh, and she also spoke about her latest book release, Business Analysis
After the initial success of her first book, 'Second Spring' which was a story of a successful single mother and her flirtation with love and the complexities of human relationships, Sandhya Jane has chosen to go down a more conventional route, sticking to her roots of Business Analysis and Information Technology, publishing the book 'Business Analysis' which provides solutions to things like business goals, technology, tools, techniques and a whole lot more.
The book, which is in a question-answer format helps break down complex business jargons and should be read by those who have little or no knowledge about the business world.
So what is Business Analysis? Well, it basically refers to the process of managing and implementing changes in a business. These changes could be new regulations by the government, updated customer base or new technological inventions and trends.
"Change is constant," said Jane. "No business today can run successfully without technology and this book will help people handle change in their business. The book will also help an aspiring analyst prepare for an interview and help upgrade his knowledge, skill and value to a potential employer," she added.
The format of the book seeks to assist readers in planning and organizing thoughts in a systematic manner. It can also be used for preparing students for professional certification examinations offered by various leading institutions around the world.
Based out of Hong Kong, Sandhya is quite a jack of all and a master of all. "The key to balancing work, writing and parenting is to focus on each and giving each my all in that moment. When I am spending time with my son, I am not thinking of work and when I am working everything else is switched off," she said.
A message for aspiring writers? "Discipline," she quipped. "That is one quality that can take you from point A to point B successfully. Many people have excellent ideas but struggle to implement them. The key to being successful is to go ahead and make that first draft before changing it a million times if need be. However, that first step is the most important and also the most difficult step," she added.
