“As long as you’re authentic to yourself and express your truth; blessings will come in the most unexpected ways” 



Being a ‘control freak’ has helped me in my career and business success. I’ve learned hard work, persistence, and grit has helped me overcome so many obstacles in business. However, in more personal affairs, my ‘control freak’ nature isn’t as conducive.

What I’ve learned through this journey: there are many things you cannot control in life. Even in personal relationships, you cannot control someone else. Even the success of a business has an element of luck to it. When growing a human being or a family, you only have so much control. What is most important is to be your authentic self and the right people and blessings will come in their time. 

Throughout my pregnancy, I’ve learned to enjoy the journey instead of trying to ‘control it’. Just like my first baby, Banish; my second baby also happened by happenstance. But I don’t believe either was an ‘accident’; I was living in my truth and in that, life gives you so many unexpected blessings. 

In this episode I share about: 

  1. My biggest announcement ever! 
  2. Freezing egg experience
  3. On the day of our ‘hustle harder’ culture, There are many things you cannot control in life. 
  4. How did I know I was pregnant 
  5. How I am embracing the journey
  6. Gratitude: “life doesn’t give you what you want, but what you need”


Show notes: 

00:30 - Biggest announcement ever from Daisy

1:40- Daisy uploaded a video about freezing eggs! Daisy had so much anxiety about the ‘biological clock’ because she is very career-focused and couldn’t figure out when the right time to ‘settle down’ and have kids is. So, last year she went through the invasive procedure of freezing her eggs. 

3:54 - She appreciates everything that she has

4:35 - Daisy really wanted to be a mom, but wasn’t sure when the ‘right time’ would be. Should she wait until she is more ‘settled’? But with waiting too long, there are unexpected consequences and you cannot race biology. 

7:26 - Getting pregnant is something that we do not have control over. In your early days, you are taught you should do everything to avoid getting pregnant. Then it’s like a switch happens at 30, and that’s all people are trying to do. 

9:25 - “Am I gonna be a good mom?” - Daisy 

11:05 - Women have kids in much older age. Fertility is declining in most developed nations, like the US and Japan. Men and women are focusing much more on their careers. The cost of living is astronomically high.  

12:40 - Having a child at this time was not completely planned

13:36 - Maturity from being 30’s

15:00 - The pregnancy symptoms experienced by Daisy 

17:54 - A pregnancy test confirmed it. No questions asked! 

19:00 - Things will happen, just let them happen. Trust the process and enjoy the journey. Your body is amazing and will know what to do; trust your body. 

20:00 - Her first trimester was awful. Feeling like the worst hangover+flu

21:15  - Banish products are pregnancy-safe. Products with retinol, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid orhydroquinone are a no-no.

22:36 - Daisy is so grateful for sharing her story. She has learned so much in the past 5 months and will continue to share her learnings 


Daisy has always been an advocate of authenticity. She is never afraid to share her vulnerabilities. From how she started Banish, she did it by speaking her truths from fears, insecurities, influence, and focus. Even her affirmations and problem-solving are highlighted.
