by neeta bhushan


Hey Brave Table fam, great to see you here! Thanks for joining me for today’s empowering episode. So, what would you do if you weren’t afraid to fail?

To make women feel seen, heard, and appreciated—that’s what inspired our guest to start building her community online, inspiring South Asian women worldwide.

Simran Handa, also known as the Brown Boss Babe Queen, created this platform to bring like-minded women together and give them a safe space where they feel understood and supported. She’s been featured in NY Daily Trends and Hustlers Digest and has spoken as a guest speaker at the Empowered Within Summit 2022 with 18 other industry leaders. Her vision is to help you realize the power you carry within and remind you that you’re capable of accomplishing absolutely anything you desire.

In today’s episode, Simran shares her journey from conforming to societal norms to advocating for women who struggle with archaic beliefs.
