Pat On Our Back – Testimonial time for The Lifestyle Portal

Testimonials from around the world

The best encouragement one gets is when their work is appreciated. The Lifestyle Portal is all set to complete 7 years on 11th February, and here’s something that has kept us going even through challenges.

The happiness and gratitude of our clients and readers is a huge source of encouragement. We thank all our readers, clients, friends, family and well-wishers who have been a part of our journey. A big thank you to everyone!

Sharing with you some testimonials we’ve received which have made our 7th birthday truly special:

15 new clients, 33 new entrepreneur profiles, 2 new revenue streams, 28% of revenue from the new revenue streams, doubling employee base, creating a new network of writers, 20% increase in profiling entrepreneurs and new businesses … that’s a very impressive list of reasons for celebrating an anniversary, something any business owner would be proud of.

And it is all the more credible because Tanya Munshi did it all on her own with great support from her clients, friends, well-wishers, and family. Congratulations #TheLifestylePortal and best wishes for steady growth and continued progress in the coming year as well.

“These seven years of The Lifestyle Portal have touched upon the various aspects of life akin to the seven vibrant colours of the rainbow. Be it parenting tips, shopping hotspots, yum recipes, intro to budding entrepreneurs, happy hours with little ones, the list goes on…my all-time favourite being the beautiful travelogues.

I have witnessed the tiny sapling transform into a beautiful plant and being nurtured lovingly to spread even further.

Congratulations and all the best to TLP and its team.  Keep it up!”

Heartiest congratulations on completing 7 years of your amazing journey.

I had started broadcasting stories in March 2017 and you were the first one to recognise and appreciate our initiative and provide me with a platform in June 2017. Though many more followed from all parts of the world, your article continues to be very close to my heart. It describes our initiative in the most simple and elegant manner. You were also very cooperative when changes needed to be made.

It provided me with loads of new subscribers and most importantly pumped confidence in me that I could do this.

Today, Kahaniwali Nani successfully runs channels on Telegram App and YouTube. I would like to attribute a big part of my success to you. Thanks once again and wish you good luck. May you continue to charge and change lives as you did for me. God bless you.

The Lifestyle Portal is a great platform for expressing one’s creativity and writing skills. I love to read articles on travel, cooking, food, healthcare, parenting and new ‘out of the box ideas’ by start-ups and entrepreneurs. The founder of  The Lifestyle Portal – Tanya Munshi is a dynamic personality I wish The Lifestyle Portal a very happy seventh birthday and a great success in years to come. Continue to help people feature themselves and keep up the great work. I am sure the duo will take The Lifestyle Portal to great heights and make a mark.  All the best!

I wholeheartedly congratulate The Lifestyle Portal on its 7th anniversary of showcasing dreams-come-true. The Lifestyle Portal is not just a site that promotes new entrepreneurs and aspiring professionals, but it is also a glowing example of how a lone individual can tirelessly devote herself to spreading bonhomie in a lopsided world while inspiring people to a better quality of life. The Portal’s motto – Eat. Travel. Laugh. Share. Live – promises you more out of life that you ever imagined possible. Kudos!

Tanya is a super cooperative person and goes out of the way to meet the client requirements. She ensures that commitments are delivered in the right manner. A true professional, a good writer and a lovely person by heart. Looking forward to many such professional interactions soon.

I got to know Tanya when she was still a cub writer looking to find her niche. She’s always been passionate about seeking out unique voices in the fashion, lifestyle and beauty space, voices that are creating more value through their brands. Many of these belong to women. We need more such platforms recognising good work. Thanks Tanya for curating this one with such love and care.

I was introduced to The Lifestyle Portal last year and was quiet impressed by it. The content is varied and interesting. Loved the topics chosen for parenting as social media is a very influential platform in today’s era. The fact that The Lifestyle Portal brings to notice varied and interesting things people do which are unheard of is quiet commendable.

Also, earlier, I was always petrified of writing but through Tanya, I overcame that. I loved the Online Writing Program that I did with Tanya. I found the writing program very useful and I highly recommend it to everyone who is interested in writing but doesn’t know where to start.

Happy Birthday!!
Looking forward to writing more…..

I got to know about The Lifestyle Portal through a common friend Tanya and I have. It was related to a ‘restaurant review ‘write-up that I was doing at that time. I am glad I found the portal as it covers all the interesting areas I  generally like to browse the internet- like food, parenting, pep-talk and travel to name a few. I also look forward to reading about the profiles of different entrepreneurs and start-ups which is also the main idea behind the portal. I think it’s a great platform for budding entrepreneurs to get themselves known to the world at large. The stories are especially inspiring and heart-warming for someone like me who is trying to establish her own business at the moment.

I wish The Lifestyle Portal a great future ahead. May you continue to inspire and delight us ☺.

Dear Tanya and the TLS team,

A happy 7th to you. May you keep growing over the years, always maturing but never aging. Keep churning out good and varied content.

As a reader and occasional contributor [2 articles and 1 photography contest submission in the last 6 years], I wish to see the flag of TLS fluttering high up, so my dear friend Tanya’s backbreaking work behind her chronologically-first baby pays off.

All the best and all my love and good wishes.
