I am:

Preeti Vyas, CFO (Chief Fun Officer) & Founder of FunOKPlease Publishing which focuses on creating contemporary Indian content for children- books for the curious little Indian is our tagline. I am also wife to my author husband Amish and mother to 4 year old, animal lover Neel.

Before being a Mom:

I worked in full-time jobs for 13 years non-stop at organizations such as Crossword, Sony Music and Future Group. I also briefly ran my own children’s bookstore for 3 years

Why I made the change:

Out of greed! Wanting to spend as much time with Neel as possible, meant I could not dream of going back to the crazy, full time corporate life I lived in the past. Yet, I just could not see myself as a stay-at-home Mom, I am far too restless and would probably drive my kid mad! So I had to find a way to balance both these needs.

How do I manage:

An amazing full-time maid who is a blessing from the heavens above, a supportive husband, a Samsung Smartphone, high-speed broadband internet, amazing team of authors and illustrators ( most of them moms themselves) and lots of late nights!

In the future:

We have published 12 books so far; the ambition is for 250! 25% of the company’s profits go to NGOs that support underprivileged kids. Someday, I hope we can contribute enough to open a school for underprivileged kids :)
