2005

Moved to the UK with nothing but 100 pounds, 4 sets of clothes, and zero contacts.

2006-2011

Worked at various multinational restaurant chains in senior management positions.

2011-2015

Started and ran my own Restaurant Business called Spicy Affair, serving authentic Indian food in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

2013

Got married. It was a Big Fat Indian Wedding.

2012 - The Realisation

While sitting on the floor in the corner of a dark and cold store room, one question kept repeating in my head - "Why me?" People talk about Good Karma and Bad Karma. I could not understand what bad could I have done to deserve this. The more I thought about this, the more sad, angry, and depressed I got.

But then a new thought appeared from somewhere. This time the thought was, "Why not me?". There are young kids dying in war zone countries. Surely they haven't done any bad karma. If bad things can happen to them, then "why not me?". This one thought shifted my energy. From being stressed and depressed to being positive and grateful. 

I concluded that maybe its not about good karma or bad karma. Maybe sh*t just happens. It's what we do about it. We never get to choose what happens to us, but we always get to choose our next move.

I managed to borrow some more money and got the restaurant back up and running.

2012

 A series of events led me to become homeless, sleeping on the floor of a dark storeroom in my restaurant with no heating or light.

A staff cheated and stole money from the bank before fleeing the country. The council came and inspected the place and found some issues in the wiring so they shut the restaurant down. And then someone noticed that the restaurant is shut so they broke in to steal all the cash.

This felt like the worst nightmare over and over again. The only place to cut costs was the 1000 pounds per month rent I was paying.

2014

November 2014. I became a Dad and a New Man. When holding this little soul in my hand a question kept repeating in my head. "When would I see him?" Being a Restaurant business owner meant I was working weekends, Christmas, New Year, and all holidays.

2015

I decided to become an Accountant. I started studying but nothing would go into my head. I could not focus. I was distracted. My sleep was bad and so was my memory.

I knew I had to work on myself first. That's when I started studying the Mind and human potential. I read over 50 books on the topic and attended dozens of training. Result: I knew I have found something.

I learned the power of slowing down in a fast-moving world

2016

 

As a result, I finished a 2-year qualification in 3 months. I went on to do an MA in Accounting and Finance. All this while also working full time and spending weekends with family and healing my wife with the daily chores as our few months old son required full-time attention.

Everyone around me started noticing the difference in the state of my being and doing. My friends would jokingly call me 'Superhuman'.

2020

My first book The Power Within went on to be an Amazon US Bestseller, and I decided to quit my corporate job to become a full-time Coach.

2017-2020

Worked in different accounts-related roles in the public and private sector with organizations such as HMRC and KPMG.

2015-2017

Worked as self-employed Business Consultant. Helping Restaurant businesses to improve their revenue and operations. Helped launch multiple successful restaurants.

More About Me

 

I work with top performers and I learn from them as much as they learn from me. My clients are powerful leaders from all walks of life. I work with entrepreneurs, sports personalities, celebrities, and c-level executives. None of them 'need' a coach. They want a coach. Because they are willing to play a higher game and understand the importance of having someone from outside to help them see things differently.

I believe that we live in an information age where the value of knowledge and information is close to nothing. So my goal is not to teach anything new to my clients. Most of the time they are far more knowledgeable than me. My goal is to show them the same things, same information, same problems, but from a new angle and understanding. This is how we create miracles. This is how we end suffering. This is how we unleash their true power.

My coaching is based on insights. The difference between information and insight is that one comes from the outside, other comes from the inside. One powerful insight is enough to change the course of your life forever.

Nothing comes in the way of my commitment to getting my clients results. I can often be compassionately ruthless.

I do not allow my clients to play anything below their highest game. When they cry, I wipe their tears. When they laugh, I laugh with them. But when they give excuses, I have no mercy. Because I know how powerful they are. I know before they know it.

I have been homeless, and I have run multiple successful businesses. I am an accountant and psychologist. I am a father and a leader. I have felt lost, but I am now living on purpose. I have struggled and I have thrived. No matter where you are in your life, chances are I have either been there or a place similar to that. I am you. But because I can see you from outside your head, I can see how powerful you are and what's possible for you.

My Mission: To impact one billion lives.

My Purpose: To serve others by introducing them to their powers.

My Philosophy: Life is like a game. a game we can not control. The sooner we accept this the better we play. And while we can not control the game, we can all become a better player.
