I’m a serial entrepreneur, MIND HACKER (psychologist & mindset coach), motivational speaker and content creator.
HERE ARE SOME OF MY “FANCY” CREDENTIALS THAT SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT!
Masters in Science- Psychology of Human Behavior
Certified by Tony Robbins Master University
Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP Master Practitioner
I quit my corporate life to start my own businesses to pursue a mission of hacking mindsets through helping people unlearn their bad habits, take control of their life and rediscover their inner happiness !
BUT THATS NOT WHERE THE STORY STARTED!
I journeyed through some serious craziness, from buying into a phony franchise to hitting rock bottom. Rock Bottom is an understatement. I got news that my father was dying, a business partner stole my investment of 1.5 Million AED and I got diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, all in a time span of 2 months. Yes, it was some sh*t!
I was lost, uninspired, confused and freaking depressed. I was doing the day-to-day like a sad, broken robot. I realized at that moment that my mind controlled me, instead of the other way around. I spent months focusing on hacking my mind. Finding the loophole that can override anything that defied my willpower and start living a life on my own terms.
So, I gave up the security of the 9-5, began dabbling in creating “motivational” content , while slowly building two businesses from the ground up.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been insatiably curious about human behavior. I wanted to know, what exactly is it that makes people do the things they do (good and bad)? Why do some people wake up grumpy while others find a way to smile, despite challenges and their problems?
I was also passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected things: speaking, hip-hop, entrepreneurship, creativity, spirituality, basketball and philanthropy, just to name a few.
I realized that my unusual combination of interests and skills was a strength, not a liability. I later started calling myself a "Creator" because I just didn’t (and never will) fit into a conventional box.
I’m no sage from the stage and I don’t have all the answers. I make mistakes (A LOT of them), have shitastic days and get caught up in fear and self-doubt, just like the rest of humanity. However, my biggest passion is continuing to learn new things each day and expand my own ideas about what it means to live a fully creative and meaningful life.
My commitment is to bring you the very best of what I’m living and learning, and keeping it real and honest as I go. So please don’t expect perfect polish (I’m too badass for that) but do expect thought-provoking ideas, timeless wisdom, some goofy antics and an unwavering devotion to help you live your most expansive, expressive and meaningful life.
Thank you for taking the time to visit. I’m thrilled we’re connected and I’m excited for the journey ahead.
Keep being awesome!
