She wants to ‘make everyone wealthy’ around —— yes, Gurleen Kaur Tikku -Bachelor in Finance and Investment Analysis—graduated from Delhi University, and a Certified Financial Planner from Financial Planning Standard Board (FPSB), India; leads a successful financial consulting firm ‘Haree Patti’——and as Chief Executive Officer of this business, she consults clients for financial investment in almost all its major classification- right from- small SIP (Systematic investment Planning) to Gold Investment, Mutual Funds, Companies Fixed Deposits, Reserve Bank of India Bonds -to Infrastructure Investment -to- large scale investment portfolio management.
Born and raised in a middle-class family in Delhi, India; her father was a practising Financial Adviser——as a child Gurleen dreamt of being a pilot, but soon after completing her graduation she got married in 2004 and there after in the year 2005 her father left for heavenly abode; being the elder daughter of the house, the entire responsibility of the family and father’s business moved to her shoulders ——— at an age of twenty-one – twenty-two, this barely experienced Gurleen stepped up to carry on a legacy of a twenty-five year old financial consulting firm built by her father. “The beginning was very tough, though the business name had substantial reputation, but the profession is of ‘somebody else’s money-management’, and that demands personal credibility and caliber,” Gurleen recalls. “Managing business; house chores; and caring for a four-month new-born son -it’s like running a triathlon — but my spouse stood beside me like a ‘strong pillar’ and extended all his support and the strength needed — my in-laws, my mother cooperated well to make all my new beginnings as easygoing,” she continues, “Being a woman, I never had or have any hindrance in my professional growth—but yes, whatever is achieved today is by sheer hardship and persistence for better professional performance than yesterday —— the best is yet to come, but I am happy of what I am today,”.

During the conversation what she said about women was absolutely right that: ‘Women themselves create the barrier, and halt their growth——actually nothing can stop them from doing what good is meant for them’.
Ever dedicated to her work, Gurleen Kaur Tikku aims to be a better daughter – better wife – better mother for her family, and a humble better human being, working and wishing a financially sound life for every family associated with ’Haree Patti’. In her signing off message to today’s women -she says, “Women must initiate to walk on the path of financial self-dependence and target self-sustainable life — actually, they will then experience their strength and know what wonders they can do for themselves, and their family,”.
