In this episode Shruthi opens up about what happened when life didn't go as planned.


She moved with her husband, Hank, to London following a career opportunity for Hank and believing she had some potential work setup when she arrived. When those opportunities fell through Shruthi was left feeling alone and eager to get to work. 

From that season The Honest Shruth, Shruthi's Lifestyle Blog, was born .

  • what fighting healthy in  a marriage looks like

  • being ready to evolve in business

  • how frustrating it can be when people don't take what you do seriously
