    Nooyi’s excellent support network helped her to succeed in her studies and early career.

    One day in 2009, Indra Nooyi, the CEO of PepsiCo, was at a meeting in Washington DC. Also in attendance were the president of the United States, Barack Obama, and the prime minister of India, Manmohan Singh.

    When Nooyi was introduced to the group, Prime Minister Singh said, “Ah, she’s one of us.” With a smile, Obama replied, “She’s one of us, too.”

    This encounter sums up Nooyi’s life, career, and sense of identity. As an Indian woman who’s had a successful corporate career in the US, she truly belongs to both worlds.

    And while she’s now a proud US citizen, Nooyi is equally proud of her roots in India. After all, it was her family and mentors in India that helped to make her the person she is today – one of the most influential women in business.

    Even as a child, growing up in Chennai – then Madras – in the 60s and 70s, Nooyi knew that she was going to aim high. And she certainly wasn’t going to be held back by her gender.

    You see, Nooyi grew up in a Hindu Brahmin family. This is a culture that values self-discipline and prioritizes education for both sexes. Also, at the time, many women in India were being encouraged to study. Yes, they were still expected to become wives and mothers, but they could also pursue an education.

    Although Nooyi’s mother didn’t work, she was determined that her daughter would have a college education and get a good job. The rest of Nooyi’s family were equally supportive. Right from the beginning, she was expected to work hard and get good grades.

    Luckily, this is something that came naturally to Nooyi. She loved school. Every morning, she hopped on the back of her father’s scooter and headed to her all-girls Catholic school, excited for another day of learning and . . . freedom.

    For Nooyi, school meant freedom, away from the strict rules and close monitoring she experienced at home. At school, she got to read what she wanted, join the Girl Scouts, and learn all kinds of new things. After class, she’d literally run down the corridor from one activity to the next.

    Her love of learning continued throughout school and college. Afterward, she went on to do a master’s degree at the prestigious business school IIM Calcutta.

    Nooyi’s classmates and professors were nearly all men. She was part of a new generation of Indian women entering the world of business.

    But fortunately, Nooyi and her female classmates felt respected and supported by the men they worked with. And there was also a sense of excitement – they were on the cusp of something special.

    After graduating, Nooyi enjoyed getting stuck into her first jobs in product management. But in 1977, while she was working for Johnson & Johnson in Bombay, she found herself thinking about opportunities abroad.

    More specifically, America. So many of her college friends were heading there for postgraduate programs in California, Illinois, and Texas.

    Many of the best business students in India flocked to the US for further education and then went on to have super successful careers.

    So as her friends went off, one by one, Nooyi found herself wondering. Was that the way to move ahead with her career? Did she have a future in the US?

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
