The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and so the name - 1 step 2 LEAP.

Transformation or Over night success is an infinite number of small steps taken consistently. 

Nature supports transformation. There is evidence is transformation. Readiness - That's the real question for you.

Are you ready to transform your business, life or your way of being?

Clarity Courage Confidence

The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.

My story...

I don’t have a fancy story to tell …I have a simple one

I haven’t been on thresholds of bankruptcy and then emerged as millionaire – I know this is the kind of story that attracts most attention – Even I like reading these. There is something attractive about underdogs indeed!

My story is simple: I come from a family with a strong educational background with a balance of interest in sports and art…

Until middle school, I was an above average student but not the topper of my class. I had the capacity to finish at top of my class – I knew that inside but I found myself often listening to my peers who said – topping the class was for someone else – I never gave myself a chance.

My turning point in life was when I read the book “The Alchemist” and around that time I was also following Rahul Dravid’s career – I loved the way he took things to the finish with the age old wisdom of slow and steady wins the race. I chose to experiment with my 12th standard Board exams – I set myself a target – broke that target into smaller milestones and kept moving from milestone to milestone – the end result was the Board rank that I wanted!

Since then I have found a simple formula in life. I think of what I want – break that dream into small doable actions and then carry out the action steps. I keep myself accountable every single week.


With this formula I have been able to make “my” dreams come true. I emphasize on “my” here as what sounds like a dream to me might may not to someone else.

If I just pause for a moment and think of all the things I have achieved using this formula – the following list props up:

  • Getting a 12th standard board rank
  • Graduating at top of the class in my Bachelors degree
  • Graduating second in my Masters class
  • Completing CFA
  • Doing the Arengetram and then Bharatnatyam stage shows in Mumbai
  • Getting to work for Morgan Stanley
  • Working in London’s Canary Wharf business district
  • Going to Leh – Ladakh (a self-sponsored trip – the first I took without my family)
  • Buying an apartment in plush area of Bangalore (this was a joint goal with my husband)
  • Volunteering for an NGO to start a business line
  • Building a successful international online coaching business

In all these achievements the most important piece is my support system – my parents, my husband, my family, my teachers, my friends, my bosses, my business coach and ultimately my spiritual mentor!

Today I am ready to take my basic formula of doing things step by step to make a leap and customize it to a formula that resonates and aligns with your individuality!

How I Got Into Coaching?

I discovered my passion for coaching while leading my team at Evalueserve. My determination of coaching strengthened during my interactions with different people from across the world when I observed that almost everyone led a stressful life. Stress caused by no life threatening issues but by never ending nagging matters (for instance not getting along with colleagues, poor time management, trying to get ahead, not believing enough in themselves etc.,) which become a part of our daily life even without we realizing it, ultimately forcing us to join the race of robots doing monotonous work and putting a stop to our creativity and out of box thinking.

I am very clear that coaching and success should not be limited to professionals or CXO levels. I strongly believe that everyone is capable of achieving success, measured differently depending on the various individual roles we play. Engrossed in our daily chores, we often tend to lose focus of the larger goal.

This is where a life coach plays a role in helping you identify the opportunity, tap into your potential and synthesize a solution that brings your blueprint of success into action through small achievable steps.

I am qualified with ACSTH certification offered by ICF and a Certified Deep Transformational Coach. I extend my life coaching services to individuals who have commitment and aspiration to experience the ecstasy of success.

I empower you to realize your true potential by converting your visions into smaller and more manageable tasks with a free mind and a creative approach so as to reach the zenith you dreamt of.

There is no better satisfaction than the Eureka moment you achieve with your will and consistent action!
