• Summary

  • Discovering what makes us human, exploring important life hacks, and "how to be", whilst self-reflecting with you all on this journey of improvement. Have you ever thought why is it that my friends, colleagues, and acquaintances can do so much more than me? Well if you have, you're not alone. From confidence, persistence, motivation, to resilience - these life skills can help us go a long way in believing in ourselves. So I've made it a mission, as a fellow unconfidante, to try examine the tips and guides out there to see if it can help. Whilst I am no expert by any means, I have lived experience of feeling the above so hopefully we can take this path of enhancement together. PS.

  • Episode 51: Bold - How Do We Tell Our Untold Stories?

    Nov 14 2021
    Welcome to "How To Be...", exploring how to gain life skills, whilst attempting to gain some myself. We all know the incredibly heavy weight of bearing an untold secret.  There is nothing so heavy as having something significant to share, to get off our chest, and being unable to share it, often because we think that it will be poorly received.  But we also know how incredibly freeing it can be when we do. So what stops us from sharing? Looking into what the 'experts' say about sharing untold stories and whether it is truly helpful? And also hearing from others who have gained some mastery over themselves. Please hit subscribe to hear the whole series on life skills! It should be short and sweet. I look forward to journeying with you through this maze of hacks. Trigger Warning: This episode contains themes of sexual violence, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, racism, self-harm.

It’s arguably the greatest challenge or threat facing this and future generations, yet it seems at times to be a near-insurmountable challenge in itself just to get people interested in it. For one, we don't hear the human aspect of the crisis, and what are people actually doing about it? Looking into what the 'experts' say about climate change and whether it is truly helpful? And also hearing from others who have gained some mastery over themselves. Please hit subscribe to hear the whole series on life skills! It should be short and sweet.

Courageous and kind

Suswati's How To Be series is courageous and kind, exploring unique perspectives on topics that are close to our collective hearts. She is conscious in her words, offers deep insights, and is an all round pleasure to work with, I hope we'll have the chance to collaborate further again.

Professional and really knows her work

I was lucky enough to be part of Suswati Basu podcast show (How To Be...) recently and really enjoyed it. I have been on a few episodes and she is professional within her work and really knows her topics. She has a huge range of topics covered and is always giving both sides of the story.

Her professionalism to her work is outstanding and I have really enjoyed working with her. Her communication is very quick and always professional but nice at the same time. If I couldn't do a podcast for any reason she wouldn't push me and offer me to come back on another one.

I found her through the journorequest hashtag on twitter and would certainly recommend her work. Thank you for having me on the podcast and I will certainly be returning soon to help you out with your work.

Would recommend Suswati to anyone wishing to have her on their show or work with her in the future.
