Rhythm Sethi

Marketing Manager

It is my commitment to live a contributive life.

Hi! I’m Rhythm Sethi, the Marketing Manager for Productive Learning. I am responsible for everything client facing. I develop and create all of our workshop packets, social media content, newsletters, and web pages. The team calls me the “quintessential millennial,” and I take that as a compliment because it means I am finding innovative ways to connect with our clients in ways that are fresh and relevant.

Marketing was not something that I pursued academically. I have a Liberal Arts degree from Soka University and my real passion is dancing. I love telling stories through dance, through moving my body in sync with the music, in cadence with the other dancers and communicating an idea or feeling through our collective effort. I have been a dancer since I was a little girl growing up outside New Delhi, India. I love the way it makes me feel., I get lost in the music and my body takes over and I feel like I am watching it all happen from the inside out. I feel awake and fully alive.

Just like all great love affairs, dance and I have had our trials and tribulations. Our love has been tested and my commitment has never wavered. I love to dance and dance taught me about telling stories, connecting to the love inside of me and using that as a way to connect with the world around me. I think that is why marketing came naturally to me.

I have a good eye for aesthetics and creating beautiful works of art but more importantly, I love communicating a story that has a purpose and can make a positive impact in the lives of many. I am so driven to make a contribution in the lives of the people around me and I knew when I found Productive Learning it was a perfect fit for me.

I have worked on many marketing teams, mostly in corporate settings, and I learned how to craft a beautiful message but at Productive Learning, I feel we can have more of an impact in the world. Our team is a group of people that live their work and love their work and I take great pride in connecting our team with other people that are looking to walk the talk and make a positive contribution to their lives.

I had worked in the corporate environment for years when I found Productive Learning. I remember being stunned at my first team meeting. All the corporate manners I had grown accustomed to following were no longer the priority. Authenticity, connection, and understanding are the priority with them and I realized that my job wasn’t to create beauty it was to share the beauty that is inherent in the work we do. That’s when I knew I had found my home.

Outside of Productive Learning, my partner Angela and I have four darling, loving fur babies called Kofu, Bella, Kuma, and Taiga. We love to take our dogs, Kofu and Bella, camping but hate cleaning out their fur after. I love trying new things like surfing, yoga and public speaking. I dance as often as I can and I recently signed up for a ballet class. I miss my family in Gurgaon, India and although they tempt me to come back by sending me all of my favorite goodies I know they are very proud of me, the life I live and the woman I have become.

Beyond The (Self-Created) B.S.

Sooo… how was Beyond Reasons? I loved it! Well… I loved-hated it. I took it as part of an onboarding process for becoming an employee for Productive Learning, and I have to tell you there were moments when I thought they were hazing the “new girl”, but by the end of the workshop I got it.

Sweet Genes Are Made of This

Imagine if your DNA was so malleable that a mere cup of tea, daily meditation, or your never-ending traffic-heavy commute could change it. A study published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics showed that tea consumption in women leads to chemical changes in genes that are known to interact with cancer and estrogen metabolism. Another...
