208: Ajit Nawalkha: I believe I can live big

Ajit Nawalkha Show Notes Page

Ajit Nawalkha used to have a constant dialogue of self-doubt. Coming from a background that was not very abundant, Ajit fought social comparison and feelings that he was not good enough. But over time with constant re-programming, he’s been able to have more dialogue of “I can” and to help others LIVE BIG.

Ajit Nawalkha was born in Jaipur, Rajasthan – India. He grew up in a home with 23 other family members under one roof. Clearly, in such conditions space and money were limited. Early in life, he decided that he wanted a bigger life.

So, he learned that if he was to “make it in life” the choice laid between 3 options: a career of a lawyer, a doctor or of an engineer. Trying to follow the traditional path, Ajit opted for the latest… Only to be standing in front of his family a few years later, announcing that he has chosen a path of an entrepreneur instead.

Online education was at its early stages, Facebook had just come out, believing there were any money or success in that field felt rather as an insanity. Despite family concerns, he dropped his engineering study to pursue a career in business. He started as a non-profit intern in Mindvalley – the same company where one day he would become a CEO.

Joining the company, he felt like he was finally surrounded by people who understood him and spoke his language. Finally, having found his natural environment, Ajit started growing at exponential rate. He quickly moved from a non-profit intern to a department head and then to CEO of the company. That seemed like a dream-come-true.

Ajit had also started his career as an entrepreneur and business investor. He started working with business owners, teachers, and healers, helping them to grow their business. Suddenly the position of the CEO did not seem like the top of his career. Ajit felt his passion and purpose revolved around helping coaches, authors, speakers, and entrepreneurs create a positive impact in the greater world.

So, having achieved what seemed like a pick of the business career before 30, he was starting fresh once again. His company Evercoach was born. Evercoach is a virtual hub for coaches. Ajit’s life was transformed by smart, gifted coaches and mentors, and this motivated him to become a coach himself. His mission is to empower dedicated educators, coaches and teachers to facilitate positive change in the world.

Ajit formulated his own leadership approach. Confronting traditional business education, he advocates for “leader of none” approach, believing you are only as brilliant as people that follow you.

Over the past decade he has helped build training and coaching companies to inspire the coming generation, transform entrepreneurs to live on purpose, while enjoying their lives while increasing profits.

Ajit currently lives in Los Angeles, California and loves to explore the world, learn different cuisines, write, and spending time with his wife Neeta and his son.
