I had an itch very early on — I was an orchestrator; I made things happen.
At age 11, in 6th grade, I took it upon myself to mastermind the entertainment program, the food and beverages and the decorations for our once a year class party — the whole shebang! And I raised the funds to pull off my grand vision!
At age 15, I had a big jolt in my life. I was forced to move away from this comfort, to leave behind everything that I had known, and start fresh. I had great resistance against this move. But I had no choice. We were moving to Grand Ole’ United States and I was resisting it the whole way.
The first few months were extremely difficult. Having no friends, seeing very few people who look like you, and in 11th grade – so cliques are already formed.
And we landed 2 months before 9/11.
Now grateful with a ph.d.,
and 2 years of experience as an Environmental Engineering Consulting, I left my career behind.
Life as it was becoming stale, mundane, and felt pointless. What was I doing at this job that I didn’t care about? Then again, what did I care about?
I had never taken a moment to think about that question.
I was too busy being happily swept from place to place; I was asleep. Then I felt a growing pain in my stomach region, which lasted for 5 months – until the day I emailed my 5-week notice.
Then I began exploring the deeper meaning of life through my road travels across America – living the Sagittarian lifestyle while exploring many paths to understand my interests, my passions, and my purpose.
Through this exploration, I manifested a life partner and landed in Cali where…
I explored many career paths: IT consultant and technology expert to writing, speaking, life coaching, business coaching, marketing and branding, event production for 100 to 4000 people, Soulpreneurship, creating and building a 2000 person organization from nothing, guiding meditation, creating a space for singles to meet each other, build products and create services that holistically support the mind, body, and emotions, serve 8,000+ grocery bags and more than 50,000 meals to disadvantaged people in 2020-21, and create a talk show/podcast called ‘What’s Your Story’ to discuss issues pertaining to the South Asian community across the world.
Doc meets Chakra Doctor…
and as they say, the rest is history!
