Now, one area that a lot of folks need some help with is around the area of production.
[00:01:54] Getting not just more things done, but actually getting the right things done can [00:02:00] be really tough. I've got a course called productivity for your passion. That's designed to help you do this and then to hold you accountable and walk with you so that you can tailor productivity, not just to be getting more.
[00:02:18] But actually getting the right things done. What's more, we take the approach of looking at your personality and how you actually look at things in the world and tailor the productivity system to your personnel. Because the truth is a lot of the systems that are out there are written really well for somebody with a particular personality type.
[00:02:38] But if you have a different approach to things, they just don't work, but there's tools and techniques and approaches that you can take that will work for anyone.

[00:03:46] Hema Vyas: Hi, this goes great to be here. Absolutely.
[00:03:49] Scott Maderer: So you describe yourself as a Omni preneurial psychologist. If you see if I can say that word right.
[00:03:57] Hema Vyas: psychologist. So [00:04:00] can you tell us a
[00:04:00] Scott Maderer: little bit about that idea of what is an omnipresent center to you and why do you think that's important to us? So I think it's moving slightly away from just being an entrepreneur and being in a sort of more company.
[00:04:15] Hema Vyas: Entrepreneurial with the business in mind, of course there's a business element to what I do, but there's also in terms of how we take care of people, how we take care of having a sense of meaning with what we're doing, and also having a sense of how we're impacting the planet.
[00:04:34] So they're the three things that really matter to me, people, planet and purpose. And so being an entrepreneur. Extending what I'm doing to also being philanthropic or so looking at health and well-being looking at how I can give and support people finding meaning in their lives and to also be doing things that are meaningful for me.
[00:04:55] So not just looking at the bottom line, not just being a business owner and [00:05:00] driving business success and commercial success, but driving it in a way that is really more conscious and hearts and.
[00:05:06] Scott Maderer: Yeah, that's interesting because one of the I work with a lot of small business owners and I think it's important, especially in small business.
[00:05:15] And small business means a lot of different things for a lot of different people. But I, when I w when I'm saying that a business that's driven by an individual an entrepreneurial kind of, whether it's. Business or they're 50 employees, but it's still, there's the owner operator.
[00:05:30] That's the center of it that so often we get focused on the bottom line and lose track of what got us started in the business in the first place.
[00:05:41] Hema Vyas: Absolutely. That's so true. And that's what I'm finding with a lot of startups, they lose their way. They have this idea, this vision. Sense of purpose.
[00:05:52] And as they get caught up in systems and making it all happen and putting all the processes and [00:06:00] content and websites and all the stuff together and getting a team together because often the small businesses are like you say, very founder orientated, but then they'd bring in other teams and people, and they do get lost in that they get lost in trying to make it work, to make.
[00:06:17] Stainable for themselves as a business because we all have to live. But within that how do you come back to those core values? How do you come back to that, those visions and to make sure that you're on track, because if you lose sight of that, I do think that Side of what's really important.
[00:06:35] So it loses a little bit of that sort of appeal, that little bit of a spark if you like. And it's really important to come back to that. So I help a lot of businesses do just that.
[00:06:47] Scott Maderer: How did you get started in.
[00:06:48] Hema Vyas: So I've had a lifelong journey. I've been a psychologist, literally since the age of 14, I had the word psychology and I knew that's what I wanted to do.[00:07:00]
[00:07:00] Had no idea what it meant. The age 14, it was like, But I know whatever it is. I want to be doing that because it was far more interesting than all the other things like physics and maths, et cetera. And then of course I really studied it and I loved it and it was like, oh, you can tell who people are just by looking at their shape of their nose and behavioral psychology and all.
[00:07:23] And I found the academia was not really, for me. I found it was very limiting. It was holding me back. It was trying to push me in a direction that I didn't feel it was appropriate for me. It was trying to say no, you have to pick a path and cognitive behavioral psychology or clinical psychology.
[00:07:42] And I say, no, I want to work with the heart energy. And. Spirituality and how it relates to people and how it relates to business and how it relates to the world we live in. And so going back sort of 30 odd years sky, it was really interesting because there just wasn't the space for it. Certainly not [00:08:00] in United Kingdom, London, where I.
[00:08:03] And people just weren't really interested in hard or what's love got to do with business or those sort of soft skills and core values. They weren't interested. It was all bottom line. But somewhere in my heart, I knew that's what I really wanted to do. My sort of corporate work took a detour.
[00:08:23] My occupational psychology kind of work, took a detour and I started doing more spiritual work, being a therapist and working with individuals. And I was attracting a lot of. CEO's and a lot of people who are high achievers and they were struggling with work or they were struggling with relationships, but it was impacting work.
[00:08:44] It was impacting business. So there was this correlation that I could see, and I know. Typically when I was younger, but of course, like I say, I couldn't quite step into that space to work, but as I worked more and more with individuals I [00:09:00] saw it and they saw it. They saw that when they worked on themselves business got better.
[00:09:04] Their decision-making got better. When relationships improved other things improved when other things improve relationships improved because there's this intense. Connectedness between everything. We are not individual siloed in our own lives. We are collective and holistic and all parts of us come together.
[00:09:27] No matter what we're doing. And so that led me to really thinking, okay, now I'm ready to go back into the corporate world and really make a difference there because I love the it was less therapy in the last sort of 10 years. It was more mentoring. And I love that well, but I realized that I want to have a bigger impact.
[00:09:48] I love the one-on-one work and I love the group work that I was doing and the retreat work that I was doing. But then to go back into the corporate world was really where my sort of passion was to really help [00:10:00] leaders recognize that their well-being, their emotional one. Their heart centered nurse they're tuning into certain heart-centered qualities really had a direct impact, not only on the quality of their lives, the quality of the lives that the people who work for them and with them, but also the quality of business.
[00:10:22] And that had a direct impact on the planet that we're living in because they made better decisions were happier. Society's better for us. So there's a whole. Knock-on effect that I think people are beginning to see more and more. And I just love that. You mentioned several times the idea of the heart-centered work and coming to it from that point of view.
[00:10:46] Scott Maderer: So if someone is running their own business or maybe starting their own business, why do you think it's important to put that emphasis on the heart? Part of leadership and entrepreneurship.
[00:10:57] Hema Vyas: Because one of the [00:11:00] things that science is beginning to show Scott is that the truth is at the heart plays a much, much more vital role in our lives than we originally used to think too many years, we've been very brain centric. It's all about the head and about decision-making and logic and getting all the facts and making sure we're doing all the right things, systems, processes, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. And what I found is the more I worked with people, the more they clear their heart space, the more they were more really truthful with themselves, really truthful about who they were, what they wanted, what they felt, what was working, what wasn't working.
[00:11:40] That because their hearts were open because they were clearing stuff. They were no longer trying to suppress emotions. They were no longer trying to deny what they really felt, who they really were, the more they were authentic, the more they were really in, in their heart space, that it had a direct [00:12:00] impact on how they showed up at work and who they showed up has.
[00:12:04] Suddenly communication was better. Decision-making processes were better. Creativity was better. So many things flow from that space of being openhearted. And to really understand what it means to be open-hearted is looking at the qualities of that. And it we talk a lot now in leadership about being authentic, being transparent, having trust and healthy communication and IX.
[00:12:33] Exactly. And the level of integrity and discernment, there's all these qualities, but some people naturally have these qualities and know how to tap into them. And I think a lot of people and certainly people I've worked with in the past, they struggle with those. They know what it means to be that, and they want to be there, but a lot of people go into work thinking they have to leave that part of themselves at home.
[00:12:59] They have [00:13:00] to just show up as well. My role is this and I just have to do it according to what's needed and expected of me. And it's but if you were honest, what would you say in that situation? And when they say this is what I would say. And I'm like then go in and say that.
[00:13:16] And when they see it, they're like, wow, I didn't realize it would have such a positive knock-on effect. And experience has shown me that when people are really connected to understanding not only what it means to be in your heart and how to really operate from that space, but also to be able to.
[00:13:37] Work within those parameters of being really heart-centered. There are real benefits, tangible benefits that it's hard to pinpoint unless you're living. When you actually do it, when you really have the courage to show up as your real self, there are so many positive benefits to that.
[00:13:58] And you can [00:14:00] only experience that when you try it yourself. You can talk about it. People can talk about it, but when you put it into practice, that's where the real goal.
[00:14:08] Scott Maderer: And as we mentioned in, and you just use the word, the gold as we mentioned in the intro you talk about helping people move into a state of gold.
[00:14:21] What do you mean by that? What do you mean by a state of gold?
[00:14:26] Hema Vyas: And we'll say gold is basically an element that is indestructible gold is in its purest form, it is soft. It is malleable. And yet it is ensuring sustainable and you can't nothing can touch it. Fire can't really burn it water.
[00:14:44] Can't really wet it there's all these elements to, to what gold is and what it represents. And in terms of human heart, for me, the S the state of gold is where we. I don't typically work on releasing a [00:15:00] lot of old debrief that we're holding in our hearts. We have a lot of stories that don't serve us.
[00:15:05] We have a lot of limiting beliefs, a lot of thoughts, a lot of memories, a lot of ancestral patterns and lots of things that impact who we are. And again, science is showing that it's all held in our DNA and the heart is the first organ to form in the human body. So when the hardest form informs the whole body who we are.
[00:15:27] And so when we are clearing our heart space of old sort of energies, that don't serve us, we achieve what I call pure gold, which is our. And our essence guides us the best way forward to be genuinely prosperous, to be genuinely joyful and to genuinely know what it means to be in love, not the romantic notion of love, but to genuinely be in love with our lives and who we are and everything we do.
[00:15:57] And that's what being in a state of [00:16:00] gold is that flow where everything is just flowing from purist. So
[00:16:06] Scott Maderer: how do people move towards that?
[00:16:08] Hema Vyas: So there's lots of exercises it starts off by looking at the challenges in your life because challenges often point us in the direction of what needs to be looked at immediately.
[00:16:20] A lot of people think, oh God, my life isn't working. Why is this happening to me? This pattern I end up in these jobs, or I ended up with these kind of people and what's that all about? And I say when that happens, when you're, when you find yourself struggling with something.
[00:16:36] That's the universe trying to really say to you, there's something that you need to look at. So that's one place to start to do some self-development work, to do some self-reflection to do self, just self discovery work because the truth is. We cannot avoid the fact that we all need to grow as people, we all [00:17:00] need to grow emotionally.
[00:17:02] And to an extent we need to grow spiritually because until we do that, we are going to be constantly in the rat race. Rat race keeps us stuck in patterns where we're going round in circles, just doing what we've always done or do what you know, our families have always done. Our communities have always done.
[00:17:21] If we want to break out of that. And we want to step into a world where we evolve as human beings and we evolve in terms of our own happy. As well as our societies, happiness, cultural, happiness in the world, then I think that we need to start becoming more conscious of working on ourselves and not seeing it as a mental health problem, because a lot of people think I don't need therapy because I don't have mental health issues or I don't have problems.
[00:17:51] It's it's not about property. For me, it's about evolution. It's about becoming more emotionally intelligent is [00:18:00] becoming more emotionally aware so that we become the best version of ourselves. And I believe each of us can be a better version of ourselves. Today than we were yesterday and a better version of ourselves tomorrow than we were today, because we have within us, the kind of, if you like the spiritual technology, the emotional technology to be better humans.
[00:18:25] Scott Maderer: And the old expression is you're either growing or you're dying there's yeah. A growth is the opposite of death, yeah, exactly.
[00:18:38] Hema Vyas: Otherwise you're living, but you're not really living. That's what you mean when you say dying, it's not really living.
[00:18:45] Scott Maderer: Yeah. And I think too, when you talk about therapy, because you're in the UK, I'm in the us, both very Western centric. And therapy is all.
[00:18:55] Sort of had a negative connotation. Like you said, that it's for people that have a problem, as [00:19:00] opposed to it's something that could benefit everybody. Having spent time with therapist in therapy, I think it can benefit everybody. So I think we undersell it a lot of times and look at it as a solution to a problem, as opposed to a set of tools that oftentimes therapists could bring, help us bring to bear on our lives.
[00:19:23] To give us a way of dealing with things that we just didn't know without those tools. So talking about that one of the areas that I think you work in a lot and I know again like I said is I've worked with small business owners. I see the, see it as well. Is this idea of looking to wellness, both, both mental, like we were just talking about as well as physical wellness for both the owner, for the operator, but also for the employees, for the team.
[00:19:53] If there is one, why do you see wellness as something that is both important for business and overload?
[00:19:59] Hema Vyas: [00:20:00] So I th it, it does back to the bottom line business has always been you, you focus on the business at hand, you leave your problems at home, you leave anything personal at home.
[00:20:14] You might have to cut conversations with colleagues and people you're working with, but you wouldn't go to your boss about a physical thing that's going on unless you're seeing, okay, just need to stop and go. I need to go to the hospital or I need to take my child or whatever it might be.
[00:20:31] So because of that sort of barrier, I think wellness has been overlooked because people didn't stop to think about the fact that what a long hours doing twice, what is eating at the desk doing to us? What is not having time to digest or being out in nature or all of these things? Not really considering it.
[00:20:53] This is your role. You're here to fulfill this role and it doesn't matter how you do it, but just get it done [00:21:00] because time has sped up. And because competition has become so fierce, everything is saturated now, I believe. And so therefore there's more and more demand once upon a time most people would finish by five o'clock and be home by latest six o'clock if they had a commute.
[00:21:18] And now it's. You're lucky if you're leaving at six o'clock seven o'clock people start looking at you thinking, what are you doing going home? And I know that's changed since over obviously COVID and working from home. But even now people sending emails, I get emails all hours of the day and night.
[00:21:36] People are constantly on alert. They're constantly working. They're constantly thinking about things. Deadlines are just a little bit hard and fast and they need to meet those deadlines and they don't always have the resources. Why? Because as an organization grows, no matter what the company is, what the organization is, what they do, things are growing [00:22:00] exponentially.
[00:22:00] And as they grow, they don't take into account that Those people can't necessarily keep up or that it might be too much. So there's been an overlooking of mental, emotional, physical wellbeing in terms of how we said and how long we said and all of those things. Because it wasn't considered their problem.
[00:22:20] It wasn't considered a business problem. It's that's your problem. And if you burn out, then you'd go and we'll get someone else in. And I think it's so important because one of the things we're seeing is that productivity absolutely wanes. If you're not in, in a state of wellness, if you're not emotionally happy, if you're not physically well, if you're not having a balanced life.
[00:22:46] It is the business's problem. The businesses are beginning to recognize that actually they're losing so much time due to stress. They're losing so much time to you to burn out. They're losing so much time due to lack of [00:23:00] productivity or mistakes being made. Sometimes they can be very costly. And so now they're recognizing they need to start taking care of people's wellbeing and that starts with themselves.
[00:23:13] Because an interesting thing is like Steve jobs he really knew how to take care of himself in in the sense of making time to meditate and all of these things. And when you look at his story and yet the people who worked for him were not encouraged to do so they were seeing. Work machines. Whereas he was taking the time to set a take care of his kind of spiritual growth, his emotional growth, his physical wellbeing. And now I think more and more businesses are realizing that what they do, they need. Not only do it themselves to, to not work those long hours or to take care of their wellbeing, but also to recognize others around them, be it their peers be colleagues, be it, [00:24:00] the employees, like you said, the teams that they have to do the same because there is a.
[00:24:05] Tangible and intangible impact. And the tangible impact is of course a happier workforce is going to be more productive, more creative and they're going to retain staff much, much more, but you've got the intangible, which is we have a healthier society. If people are happier, relationships are better.
[00:24:27] And if relationships are better, children grow up in a bedroom environment. There is a knock on it. And that's the thing that people need to recognize that where we were to business centric, there was a real knock on effect and society. And we need to turn the tables. Now we need to turn that around.
[00:24:47] Scott Maderer: And I think too, that it's like you said not only productivity benefits, but there's also benefits in terms of longevity of employees. [00:25:00] Loyalty to the business. Again right now I there's all this conversation about the the great Exodus with all of these people quit and.
[00:25:12] A lot of jobs where they're having a hard my son works 18, very young he's his first job. He's overnight stocking shelves and they're like down eight people they can't keep people on staff and they're paying very well and everything else, but it's, there's also this mentality sometimes of but we'll just hire another person, like you said, as opposed to.
[00:25:36] What can we do to build the team and keep them around, which quite frankly also saves money. So if you want to be bottom line oriented, technically and save money to keep an employee, it's harder to, it's more expensive to, to train and hire than it is to keep.
[00:25:51] Hema Vyas: Absolutely. Absolutely. And I think that's what they're beginning to recognize for a while.
[00:25:56] They didn't So much involved in [00:26:00] recruiting. Just something really, it really is. And an expensive and time consuming, but also then there's a whole adjustment when somebody new comes in whereas people have got used to people and so
[00:26:13] Scott Maderer: there's something person, new interactions.
[00:26:16] Hema Vyas: Exactly. All of that. Yeah. Yeah.
[00:26:19] Scott Maderer: I was in management and a corporation for 11 years and ran a large team. And I never understood it when they were like, oh no, we'll just hire someone else. It's really it's just been a little extra effort and try to keep the people we have. That would be, seems wise to me.
[00:26:37] But what do I know?
[00:26:39] When we think about those sorts of soft skills we were talking earlier about vulnerability trust these sort of truth, telling both for ourselves and for others. How does that matter for kind of these entrepreneurs or entrepreneurs as you're talking about how does that fit into their [00:27:00] growth.
[00:27:00] Hema Vyas: Qualities like truth and trust, vulnerability, those sorts of quotes.
[00:27:05] Softs. Social skills. Yeah. They're so essential because actually they may come our emotional wellbeing. So we've got like the hard skills which give us definition and direction. So for example, when we've got a degree and we've studied something and okay, this is what I'm good at physically, this is what I know academically I'm good at or physically or through experience.
[00:27:30] But I think the soft skills makes such a big difference because they lead the way. And the things I talk about is the heart energy. And the fact is we now know that the heart picks up much more information than even the brain. So the brain is able to take in certain amount of information, but the heart picks up the energy.
[00:27:51] And so it's those soft skills that actually come into play when it comes in, comes to the heart center because. The heart is picking [00:28:00] up when somebody is speaking the truth. So even if we're not conscious of it. So for example, if you're in a room and and somebody's speaking to you and they're not speaking from a place of truth.
[00:28:11] So for example, in an organization, when the leaders come in and they're not being fully transparent and fully truthful, people feel. Because of heart. We now know absolutely picks up on it and it creates a dissonance. So that dissonance kind of stays with people and it makes them feel insecure. So number one, it takes so much more time to reassure people because when they pick up on something, they know it.
[00:28:39] Feeling. And when you have a feeling, you cannot override that with a thought you can say to yourself, oh no, it's just nothing, but the truth is it doesn't go away and it doesn't go away for a lot of us. And so when we are able to know our truth, then we are able to speak that truth and we're able to do it in what diplomatic [00:29:00] way, for example.
[00:29:00] So as a leader, you're not going to go into. The company is in trouble and you might all be out of job, but you do have to find a way of seeing it in a way that is truthful and yet diplomatic so that their hearts can feel it and therefore go, okay, there's trouble ahead. But we're in good hands.
[00:29:19] We're being spoken to as adults. We're being connected with we're being cared for we're being thought of. And so that will have a massive impact. And if you think about something like vulnerability, It's so important because like I said, right at the beginning, Scott one of the problems was that we were in silos.
[00:29:39] We were in this sort of state where we think this is working, this is home. When someone comes in and is vulnerable and says I'm having a bad day because X one said happened. All of a sudden, there is so much more compassion. It compassionate, fills our heart. Empathy, fills our heart. And so when someone's having a [00:30:00] problem, we're no longer going, but you haven't met your deadline.
[00:30:02] This work needs to be done, or this needs to happen. And when you are able to show up vulnerably and somebody else is able to meet you with empathy in that space, then what happens. Is that space becomes a safe space. And when we're in the safe space, we are absolutely able to get be resilient.
[00:30:25] Resilience becomes a big thing because suddenly I've shared something with you. I've shared that I'm having trouble with something. You showed me some empathy. All of a sudden I'm able to say I can now put it aside and get on with what I need to do. If I'm not able to be vulnerable and you're not able to be empathetic.
[00:30:46] For example, then what happens is that I'm carrying it with me, your feeling, something is wrong and you're going, oh, why is she doing the work she needs to be doing? And I'm going, I can't do it because I can't [00:31:00] concentrate. Cause this is going around in my head. So therefore the productivity drops, but not only does productivity drop a trust drops because if I'm not getting something done and you don't know why I'm not getting something done, and I can't tell you why I'm not getting something done, then all of a sudden it creates a toxic atmosphere and that toxic atmosphere has a knock on effect on everything and everyone around us.
[00:31:24] And if it doesn't get done, It gets worse and anything that gets worse becomes more toxic. And so these core sort of soft skills are so important when we understand that we are picking up on them, whether we are conscious of it or not. We understand the actually is far more important for companies to absolutely encourage people to know what these co.
[00:31:51] Kind of qualities are how to work with them, how to utilize them and how to leverage them so that the [00:32:00] organization can function. And far better. It's a win-win as far as I'm concerned
[00:32:07] Scott Maderer: And it does require again the expression that the leader goes first.
[00:32:12] And in other words, if you're not being vulnerable while other people. Are less likely to be vulnerable. If you're not sharing. And that doesn't mean you have to share every detail of your life with everybody. That's not the point but at the same time, you can acknowledge the reality of the fact that you're a human being.
[00:32:31] Maybe you're going to have a bad day every once in a while, and that's okay. But be able to acknowledge that reality I think is important. And I think the leader has to set that example because as an employee, I'm not going to assume that it's okay to share. Cause I'm, there's a power differential.
[00:32:51] Hema Vyas: Absolutely. Absolutely. And when you step into any situation, you take the lead from somebody who's [00:33:00] been then usually the leader is the one who and it's so true. Scott, because one of the things is that it is about the culture and that's why it's about leadership because the leaders need to understand it so that they can promote a culture of openness and level of vulnerability or whatever it might be, which then gives people the permission to do and to have it in a healthy boundary, because like you say, it's not about everybody every day coming in and just pouring out. Problems or whatever's going on. It's just about where it's pertinent and discernment is one of the qualities that I definitely work with because I think it's so important that we're able to discern and make choices according to the context of the situation.
[00:33:50] Scott Maderer: Yeah. My brand is inspired stewardship. And so there's a few questions that I like to ask all of my guests. And one of them is this when you hear that word [00:34:00] stewardship, what does that word mean to you? Because I've discovered different people here and mean different things. So I like to define terms.
[00:34:07] And then what has that meaning or that understanding, what does that meant to you or your.
[00:34:11] Hema Vyas: So stewardship, I think is responsibility for me that we are all responsible for something or someone. And at the very least real responsible for ourselves, we have stewardship. Who we are, how we show up in the world and the impact we have in the world.
[00:34:32] The impact that is direct in terms of what we see and what we do to people and with people and for people, but also the indirect impact of all the things we're not owning has a, has an impact on people around us and has an impact on the world that we're living in. So for me, it's really.
[00:34:52] Very much about how can we be mindful of our [00:35:00] responsibility, our responses in the world as human beings, how we show up and what impact that has and how we can do that in the best possible way so that we are being the best possible human so that we are having the best possible impact on the people and the planet that we live.
[00:35:20] Scott Maderer: So if I invented this magic machine and I was able to pluck you out of the seat where you're sitting right now and transport you into the future, maybe a hundred to 150 years and magically through this machine, you were able to look back and see all of the impacts and the ripples that you've left behind in the world.
[00:35:41] What impact do you hope you've left behind in the world? So the biggest impact I would like to think is I have brought a real awareness to the heart energy and just the absolute infinite possibilities of [00:36:00] really connecting to the heart energy and to be able to bring those qualities into every aspect of our lives, but especially businesses.
[00:36:10] Hema Vyas: Business is such a big part of all of our lives and business isn't just about being in business, but any work that we do because we are all here to be of service. So in any way, shape or form that we are of service that we love. To, to really, truly connect with our hearts to really heal the past that's been held in.
[00:36:33] Our hearts has been holding us back as humanity and to shift humanity into another dimension of living where the heart becomes, the absolute norm, the heart centered living becomes the absolute.
[00:36:50] Scott Maderer: What's coming next for you as you continue on this journey, what's on the roadmap.
[00:36:54] Hema Vyas: So now that hopefully things seem to be coming down.
[00:36:59] I don't [00:37:00] want to speak too soon, but if the world starts opening up and travel becomes a lot more easy, then I really would love to travel certainly more to the states and. Do a lot more talks to really speak about what I'm speaking about. Speaking about the heart energy, the importance, and really understanding what it means and the impact it can have on.

We all need to grow as people. We all need to grow emotionally and to an extent spiritually. Because until we do that we are going to be constantly in the rat race. Rat race keeps us stuck in patterns where we are doing what we’ve always done, what our families have always done, what our communities have always done. – Hema Vyas
