Stop Chasing Success (Money) Have Fun Instead w/ CEO Ajit Nawalkha (004)

January 16, 2019

Men This Way GUEST Banner Ajit Nawalkha

Are you stuck in work overwhelm, living to work rather than working to simply enjoy life?

Do you know how to stay true to yourself and STILL create a fulfilling intimate relationship?

Are you aware how you need an encouraging support crew of men you can be vulnerable with … for the sake of your intimate relationship?

Ajit Nawalkha’s story is fairytale-like. He grew up in Jaipur, India – in the northern state of Rajasthan in a small home crowded with 23 family members. From Rajasthan, which means the Land of Kings, Life took Ajit on an adventure through the realms of business, marketing, and publishing, across the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea to Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur, where he quickly rose to become, by his early 30s, the CEO of Mindvalley, an innovative and exciting transformational education company that has trained millions of people around the world in the exploding realm of human potential. I met Ajit a year ago, through his wife, my old friend, the brilliant and talented in her own right, Neeta Bhushan Nawalkha. Despite his remarkable rise from humble beginnings to become a King among thought leader Kings, Ajit carries himself with such an unassuming presence; he’s calm and cool in a way that tells you everything is going to be ok.

Ajit is also the co-founder of Evercoach, an incredible training experience for coaches that helped fundamentally reshape my own coaching practice back in 2015 when Evercoach was launched, in ways that continue to make a massive difference for me, and for my clients.
