About the Guest:
Madhu was born into a family of yogis, but for most of his young life, he took spirituality for granted. Everything changed when he was sixteen. His father offered to pay him $100 to read the ancient wisdom text, the Bhagavad Gita As It Is. With dollar bills in his eyes, he accepted the offer. However, after reading it through, Madhu felt completely changed. His perspective on life had shifted, and the concepts taught in The Gita had resonated so deeply, that he refused to accept the money.
With a newfound burning desire to dedicate himself to a life based on spiritual principles and wisdom, Madhu became a monk on his eighteenth birthday. For five years, he lived in various monasteries, mainly across the United States and India, studying under world-renowned teachers, and intermittently traveling the world.
When Madhu graduated from the monastery, he was eager to bring his passion out into the world, but struggled to make it a sustainable venture. For years, he worked tirelessly to network and arrange workshops, sharing the knowledge he had learned as a monk; he was barely covering his travel expenses, feeling stuck, overwhelmed, and hindered by self-sabotage.
Madhu noticed a pattern in likeminded holistic practitioners. The desire to give and help others at the recognition of a need, uninformed on how to stabilize reciprocation for their services; and are then met with struggling finances, identity crises, and imposter syndrome. Recognizing the needs of Health Coaches, Wellness Professionals, Naturopaths, and Holistic Practitioners like himself, who are tired of these challenges, Madhu set out to create change. He learned how to integrate his purpose and offerings into a sustainable lifestyle business model.
By implementing high ticket offers, overcoming psychological barriers, improving time management, and prioritizing regimented personal practices, Madhu managed to transform his career within three months.
He launched Madhu Life, and has found an incredibly nourishing balance between his health, spiritual practices, professional life, and relationships. This is the transformation he is inspired to facilitate for all his clients – navigating the various aspects of their lives so that all aspects are balanced and supporting each other!
Madhu's mission is to help his clients thrive – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! Everyone who works with him hones in deeply on their vision for their life, identifies what is holding them back, builds the structure to support transformation, and inevitably expands it to grow exponentially from there.
Madhu loves teaching more than anything. He’s passionate about making ancient, transformative Vedic arts and sciences relevant, and accessible for everyone, while still preserving their authenticity and purity.
His ultimate goal is to help wellness professionals in building sustainable lifestyle businesses within 3 months, just as he did.
