Ayushi Gudwani started FableStreet, a premium workwear brand, in 2016 to cater to women of all shapes and sizes. An engineer, Gudwani did her MBA from IIM Calcutta. She came up with the idea for FableStreet during her travels abroad while working at McKinsey and Co.

Morning Boost

I have an old-fashioned routine, which includes having a cup of tea and reading the newspaper after waking up. This is followed by checking the to-do list for the day as well as the week which is passed on to my team. I also spend some time on my phone to check the previous day’s sales and resolve any urgent issues.

Fitness Files

I have finally started focusing on fitness over the past year-and-a-half. I needed to find a fitness routine that works for me and keeps me motivated. I do CrossFit five-six days a week. It is fun and helps me focus more.

Sleep log

Being an entrepreneur means having a never-ending workload that just seems to pile up like Jenga.However, I make sure to get at least 6 hours of sleep by hitting the sack at midnight and being up by 6am.

Food For Fuel

Comfort food, for me, would be paranthas made by mom. My one weakness is sweets. I can eat healthy from morning through the night, but I can’t get rid of post-10pm sweet cravings, and food delivery apps have clearly not helped me get over this weakness. I usually eat healthy food—mostly home-cooked, low carbs and high protein—but consume junk food once in a while, as cravings dictate.

How I Find My Zen

Music is what makes me relax and unwind, unlike anything else. It allows me to daydream and, for a while, just be in a positive zone. Apart from that, I do love travelling a lot. Startup life hasn’t allowed me to travel of late, but I hope to do short trips to just unwind and get fresh ideas soon.
