    Why should you trust me?

    You can trust me because:

    1. I have been where you are currently. 
    2. I am already partnering with entrepreneurs like you – right now!
    3. I have learned my lessons the hard way. You do not have to.

    Why do you need a coach?

    I can not answer this question for you. Only YOU can do that.

    I can share why I have had a coach for the last 12 years – I love having someone who believes in me and holds me accountable to a bigger vision. I love having someone who doesn’t believe the stories or fears that hold me back.

    Successful people benefit the maximum from coaching because nobody tells them what they most need to hear. As a coach, my job is to SERVE you, not to PLEASE you – by telling you just that.

    Are you ready to be brutally honest and get out of your own way? If you answered YES, then you should WANT a coach, not just NEED one. 

    What am I promising?

    I promise that:

    1. Working with me will change the trajectory of your life and work.
    2. You will learn to relax, smile, and have fun even while facing bigger and tougher challenges in your life.
    3. You will understand what it really means to be committed and what is possible when you show up with that commitment
    4. You will see things that you had never seen before – about yourself, others, and life situations.
    5. You will feel listened to with love and compassion in a way that you have never been
    6. You will experience and learn what it means to be “present”, and what it means to Deploy Yourself as a “leader
    7. You will want to spend more time with me, even if parts of spending time with me are challenging, provocative, and uncomfortable.
    8. The world you live in will change completely, not because the world changed, but because YOU changed and shifted so massively
    9. I will share what you need to hear, not what you want to hear (in your service)
    What are my requirements?

    Here is what I require from you:

    1. Make our time together the most important. Not because you are working with me, but because we are going to fully commit to your life.
    2. Be on time. Do what you say. Stay in communication when things do not go as planned.
    3. Be open and coachable. Be willing to hear different perspectives. Especially those you might not want to hear.
    4. Practice & give it time. This is not just about intellectually understanding. 
    5. Be willing to be compassionate with yourself and take this journey with lightness.

    My coaching programs are personalized to your specific needs and expectations. 

    They pack a lot of value and your investment will range from €11,000 – €48,000 for a full year of 1-on-1 coaching.

    My invitation to you is to take at least 10 times the value of your investment in the program. 

    The work I do is priceless and life-transforming. I intend to serve you so powerfully that you see this investment as your best in life so far. 

    Game on! Wanna play? 

    How much time will this take?

    The coaching sessions themselves will be 1 hour – once every week or two weeks.

    Apart from that, I expect you spend at least 30 minutes each day reflecting or practising what you learn.

    In 6 months or less, by being more present and aware in your life, you will be able to save at least 2 hours each day.

    So overall, this will save you time. 

    The APC Model - We will work at three levels

    Your ACTIONS

    Learn to see with clarity, separate fact from fiction, and make powerful offers and promises. This is what we do (or don't do). This is how we coordinate all work and ensure accountability.


    Presence is the quality of our being. It includes our moods, emotions, energy, and body. Learn to listen so deeply that you build trust, camaraderie, and a sense of serenity just by your presence.


    Identifying what we (and others) most deeply care about allows us to create better teams, well-being, and results. Unlock and create creativity and teamwork where once was stress and confusion.

    Who am I?


    Often, the most challenging story to tell is your own.

    What most people know about me is that I have spent 20 years doing software, started 2 for-profit and 1 non-profit organisation, and have spent 9 years doing photography.

    What most people don’t know about me is that I have spent a lifetime staying invisible. I have used my computer and camera as tools to hide behind. 

    As an introvert, I have spent so much of my time hiding myself that I now see where you are powerful even when you cannot.

    I combine my experiences as a techie, engineer, 3x entrepreneur, author, public speaker, leader in companies like Yahoo and, and as a poet and photographer – to help leaders merge the science of doing business with the art of leadership.

    What others are saying?

    In the last few years, my biggest challenge has been around those who I believe had more economic privilege than me. My judgments stopped me from knowing and connecting the person at a deeper level. I had put economic power at a higher pedestal that stopped me from creating a relationship of equals.

    This judgement and belief of mine had impacted me at various levels and one of them has been my confidence. This also impacted the resource generation I do in my role as founder of Share A Smile Foundation India.

    I remember the first conversation I had with Sumit wherein he helped me in identifying my past experiences that have shaped my beliefs and judgement around money since then it has been a journey wherein I have been able to identify my patterns and have been able to initiate action to break it.

    These action includes making requests and promises. I have made a promise to raise 1.5 crores in the next year for Share A Smile Foundation and I believe this will also help me break my judgements and stereotypes about those with economic privileges and help me connect and develop meaningful relationships.

    In this journey of group coaching with Sumit, I have been also able to develop a strong support system for myself. Thanks to Sumit for creating this beautiful space for us to learn and grow. I have also started believing it is possible to grow 10x.

    Ashutosh Nandwana - Founder, Share A Smile Foundation India

    Before the coaching, I had a lot of self-doubts, narratives about my identity and potential to be. I had doubts about my capacity to take initiative in areas that were unknown and was struggling on taking bigger leaps for my growth that were out of my comfort zone.

    Coaching was a new approach for me to start with as I realized I was not asking the right questions about my intention, self-awareness, and the direction I was moving ahead.

    Through coaching, I am embracing my vulnerability, answering the deeper questions, taking small actionable steps towards my goals, and learning to take a step backward to move forward.

    The sessions have been really impactful for me at different levels and supporting me in breaking down processes to set intentions, be aware, take action, and reflect to move forward. It has made me action-oriented by focusing on my dreams and bringing them into reality by living them every day.

    I would strongly recommend coaching as the journey helps one to rediscover their potential and creates a pathway for them to move ahead with deeper intentions.

    Sheetal Shetty - Social Entrepreneur

    My biggest fear whilst working in change-making and gender was on feeling less vulnerable financially and individually, by virtue of running a hybrid social enterprise. I’ve since then been tangibly able to take action to make me feel at ease and deal with the fear of being alone and susceptible to shocks due to financial stressors.

    I also am able to breathe at the moment on constant support from the peer group and the coaching on being in the today and doing what is within my power and control, expanding my choices, by shifting from a fear-based approach to action in incremental steps.

    Sumit scheduled two introductory calls just for me to get a sense of what I could expect from the coaching. I found that the time he took to get to know me, hear my pain and commit to supporting me also helped me open up and build faith. I went with some trust in the process but also was wary of an unknown person and their ability to guide, support and steer building my leadership skills.

    I’ve been proved that my faith has been more than rewarding. Sumit allows the space to bring in contradictory or diverse opinions without tending to incense or conflate opinions. He allows us to formulate our own choices and sticks true to the word of being an enabling coach.

    Life has changed in my attitude and ability to proactively address crises. I hear within my own mind space some of the coaching conversations during a regular workday/personal day and it shows to me that this rumination within myself is what matters as a result of the relatability that Sumit creates through the coaching.

    Sumit’s proactiveness to help at every request moves me. He makes connections swiftly, gives feedback judiciously on applications and is a huge moral support at times I’m daunted. Sumit helps me believe I am not alone, and I am valuable and supported.
