Braving the ire of Game of Thrones fans, and going ahead with a few spoilers, we must say that  Arya Stark won our hearts in the latest episode.


During the epic war between the living and dead, her two words left us in awe. Arya’s response, “Not today” to the question, "What do we say to the God of death?" had us cheering and rooting for this feisty character who has perhaps undergone the most transformations to reach where she is now.

Don’t we all like to see people take on challenges head on and live to tell the tale? In Arya’s journey there is a little something for every woman entrepreneur chasing her dream and trying to slay the dragons in her way.


Here are a few things women entrepreneur can learn from her:


Never say die


Life is tough, and it is going to constantly throw surprises at you and even though it may get overwhelming at times, do not give up.


It is something Arya has shown us throughout the series - whether it was learning how to fight, to take revenge or to just survive on her own in a world without family and friends. The journey of an entrepreneur is a lonely one and it is important to not give up, no matter how tough it is.


Take the example of Chennai-based entrepreneur Deepa Aathreya, who after starting up became bankrupt at 22, and had to sell balloons at the beach till she started up again and tasted success.


Own who you are


Arya’s character has shown us how important it is to accept and embrace who we are. It is pertinent to own and accept ourselves. Once we accept ourselves - with all our strengths and vulnerabilities - we are ready to take on any challenge.


Shriti Pandey left a high paying consulting job to start up in Gorakhpur, her hometown and provide environment-friendly and affordable living spaces to all.


Never lose focus


If you know what you want and are driven by passion, then continue to pursue your goal. Arya never lost focus. She knew what she wanted and never once diverted her attention from her goal.


Through adversity, Shikha Suman worked hard to make her dream come true and started her venture, Medimojo. Through all the challenges and adversities, she never lost focus of what she was doing and continued to grow and nurture her business.


The next time you feel like giving up or feel it’s all over, turn to Arya Stark for inspiration, and remind yourself that no matter how bad things get, it is important to not give up because there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
