Entrepreneur . Listener . Seeker
The journey begins.
The journey so far has been like a flight over the north pole. When the skies have been clear, the view has been spectacular. But when the weather has been gloomy, the ride has been turbulent – so much so at times, that I have been worried for my life. The one thing that has remained constant is, I have covered distance. I kept going and that kept me going.
This website is the journal of my journey. It is open for those who are feeling the heat of entrepreneurship, and for those who are still contemplating.
This is where I talk to people who I feel are living a fascinating lifestyle. I keep going back to these conversations when I am seeking answers. The current series of talks that I am doing is called [DIS]COMFORT ZONE, through which I am interviewing those people who dared challenge their Comfort Zone.
