“The prescription to a long life is life-long learning”– says Laja Woman Achiever Priyanka Acharya – and lives by it.

Her journey has been an enterprising one and the one thing that stands out is her quest for learning and mastering new avenues.

From childhood, human conversations and thought processes intrigued and interested her and she had strong aspirations to become a psychologist. However, being a high scoring student in school, her parents persuaded her to take commerce. She took it up, and after graduation went in for a MBA course.

Her aspirations found new wings as a management trainee – Business Analyst at Financial Technologies India Ltd. Soon she became a pre-sales specialist for the company.

Then, after 5 years of corporate life, she took up a faculty role at BSE where she got opportunities to conduct financial awareness programs. Meanwhile, she found a new passion in creating, publishing and presenting research papers at various management institutes and conferences. Her passion soon turned into a teaching opportunity at an institute where she was asked to teach general human behavior. This brought her back to her first love – psychology. During this time, she read, wrote and taught voraciously – mostly about communication skills and strategy.

Priyanka then partnered with ENHANSKILL which offered her an opportunity to do loads of freelance learning and development work. Meanwhile, her father passed away, and to keep his legacy alive, she became a life insurance provider with LIC and started servicing his clients.

Her initial days were full of fear and self-doubt regarding the plans she recommended to clients and the training sessions she planned. Somewhere along the way, she learned that only knowledge and passion could connect the dots. She gave up watching television in mid-2016 so that she could focus on reading, writing and brainstorming for her work. When she incorporated her own proprietary in 2019, she was much more confident and prepared! Today, she has a section called Priy-Anka’s Corner on her website, which highlights all her trials and achievements!

Apart from her unique 90 day process focussed on streamlining
businesses, Priyanka has a special initiative to enable Health Insurance “Agents” to become “Professionals” by way of her PAN India professionalism courses meant for these advisors.

There was definitely a challenging learning curve to it all. In the initial days, she made errors in her session documents, in writing cheques, and even in new recipes she tried out for her family. But thanks to the continuous support and encouragement of her family, especially her husband, Priyanka managed to conquer it all and gather many feathers in her cap! She has been featured as one of the 9 most inspiring mentors to youth in India by Gujrati weekly Chitralekha. The makers of the popular daily soap “Taarak Mehta ka Ulta Chashma” recognized her as a Swachchata Sainani for her contribution to the Swachch Bharat Abhiyan. Other awards bestowed upon Priyanka Acharya are the Emerging Leader Award 2019 by LIC of India, NLP Practitioner certification and many more. One of her dream assignments was an 8-day stint in Africa as Finance and Strategy domain expert.

But by far the most precious award was from her son who gave her a card on Woman’s Day which read “I love you, mamma! Others will talk to you, but I will hug you and kiss you as you move ahead and follow your dreams to make a successful business and achieve your dream trainings and LIC MDRT title!”

Priyanka’s formula for success is Simplicity + Consistency + Love –(minus) Crap! She has sound advice for aspiring women entrepreneurs: Do what it takes to achieve your aspirations, whatever it takes! For that, list your aspirations clearly. And lastly, build a balance in personal & professional life to enjoy both the worlds.

Asked if formal education is important, she says, “Yes, I do believe education matters. However, it matters ONLY when you have not spent your education years just to acquire marks or degrees. My education years passed experiencing the JOY of learning and that has been phenomenal in contributing to my journey so far”.

Priyanka says that true to her name, which means ‘Everyone’s Favourite’, she aspires to make a positive difference and be the best part in the lives of everyone she associates with. Well, we can vouch for it – her story is definitely an inspiring one for women entrepreneurs!

Team Laja is more than happy to be associated with this determined and enterprising go-getter.

  1. Priyanka has been a pleasure to interact with. She seems extremely knowledgeable and is very helpful. I am of the opinion that she is well suited for this profession

  2. Priyanka’s mention sets a sparkle in eyes of people who have interacted or worked with her. Her ease of communicating to persons from across social and economical strata as well as from across age groups is simply amazing.

    Her Zeal, Planning, Determination, Meticulous Implementation, Perseverance and finally Celebration are something to learn from. Enthusiasm coupled with Simplicity defines her persona. A large part of her success can be attributed to her compassion & her burning desire to help everyone and not to work just for self goals (leave apart being selfish).

    She is and shall be an inspiration for everyone, not only ‘youngsters’ and not only ‘women’.

    1. I am the fortunate travel partner of Priyanka in her dream journey to Africa. Her association with me in just 8 days of this trip impressed me so much that I started wondering how a woman in so early stage of her career have the elephantic vision for her entrepreneurial journey and more so the kind of sacrifices she is making in terms of personal & family comforts in pursuit to realization of her dreams. She is undoubtedly a true leader for all youth professionals & entrepreneurs of today to look upon.

  4. A person who is pleasure to talk too. Someone who wants to help anyone around her. She is one who effortlessly manages her work , but the part that i like most about her is the way she makes sure she has time for her family and also the discipline she has in her life. Clearly defined work hours and personal time – we all talk about it, but if one wants to see that in practice – just look at “A day in the Life of Priyanka”. A clear thought process, strategizing with a creative bent of mind and zeal to excel at whatever she takes up – that is what makes Priyanka a favorite chapter in everyone’s life.

    Donning multiple roles successfully with an ever smiling face – that’s Priyanka !

I wish her good luck on her chosen path and wish her all the success on her future endeavours.

I sometimes think she is like Leonardo Da Vinci , gifted with so many talents like finances , public speaking , L&D, PR, Admin & Mgt and much more.

  31. Truly inspiring story!

    Priyanka: A woman who is meritorious, staunch in her work. On other side she comes across as very affectionate, compassionate and benevolent.

    I wish you a illustrious career ahead.

    God bless!

  32. Due to the current lockdown scenario, we are unable to travel and go on a trip.
    Reading this blog, gave a feel of going on a journey – ongoing brilliant journey of exciting and fruitful endeavors by Priyanka!

    I know Priyanka since more than 2 decades and I have had a unique opportunity to see Priyanka interact and teach people in the age range of 1 year to 80 years.
    When with a toddler she becomes one herself.
    When with teenagers, she is their friend.
    When with graduate students of a university, students look at her with admiration.
    When with corporate honchos she portrays the epitome of professionalism.
    And after attending Priyanka’s sessions, the senior citizens feel like enrolling as life-time students of Priy-Anka to EnhanSkill (read “their” between Enhan and Skill) 🙂

    Congratulations Priyanka on adding one more feather to your hat – being awarded LAJA – Woman achiever!

    You are unstoppable. And be that way.

    This quote by Ayn Rand is most appropriate for you: The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.

    Much much happiness,

    Monish R Rana.

  33. Thanks for giving clear picture about your achievements. I appreciate your father and seen him working hard to achieve goals. You have a right training from him. Dedication and hard work.

  34. Priyanka comes across as someone who’s very humble, sharp, very eager to learn, a facilitator who can engage the participants well, subject matter expert in financial planning, insurance and communication.

    If anyone wants to see an example of passion meeting the profession, here she is: Priyanka Acharya.

  35. Priyanka has some special attributes that help her to stand apart in a crowd.

    She is a very empathetic listener in every interaction – that helps her in multiple ways – she learns much about both, the subject and the person she is interacting with – she builds trust and converts the interaction into a relationship.

    Her willingness to share and bring to the table her contributions in the relationship becomes her investment into a trust pool to help the relationship to sail forward and open up new horizons for her and everyone on board.

    An insatiable thirst for knowledge drives her to keep acquiring and upgrading skills, that she immediately turns around to pass around and share. This constant churning keeps her in motion and adds to her agility.

    My personal experience with Priyanka has been that she always is totally respectful and she stretches herself to meet her commitments and even go above and beyond!

  36. Priyanka is a go getter.She is calm ,patient and yet so dynamic.I have known her since quite some time now and what I have noticed is she strikes a chord with all age groups easily.She has a smiling face and her positive vibes are contagious.Over the years she has mastered her oratory skills .She is a true inspiration for many.
