[Spend­ing two months at an ashram in In­dia] helped con­nect two things I love – work­ing with en­trepreneurs and yo­gic phi­los­o­phy. I saw a syn­ergy be­tween the path of the yogi and the en­tre­pre­neur – both have to un­dergo hard­ship, have laser-like fo­cus, sur­ren­der, ac­cept change and give up ex­tra­ne­ous dis­trac­tions.

HOW CAN HUSTLERS FIND THEIR WAY TO THE ‘GOOD’ PATH?

Stop and lis­ten. Slow down. When we’re young we of­ten know the group we’re called to serve, but we let the in­ter­ests of our par­ents, teach­ers and ‘adult­ing’ sway us away from that. Recog­nise the feel­ing when you’re drawn to some­thing and want to stay in that space for­ever. Then, like all good busi­nesses, you need to fol­low cer­tain steps – can you ar­tic­u­late the so­lu­tion you have to a prob­lem, is there a suf­fi­ciently big mar­ket, and will it pay an amount that leaves enough profit?

HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE YOU STAY ON PUR­POSE?

My work is a re­sult of hav­ing the un­com­fort­able feel­ing that I wasn’t do­ing what I should be. It caused me suf­fer­ing but also made me cu­ri­ous. Now, I be­gin each day with my mind turned to­wards my mis­sion to serve oth­ers. My neu­ral path­way sounds a gen­tle in­ter­nal alarm when I’m about to run af­ter some­thing shiny or wal­low in judg­ment. Spoiler: there’s no sil­ver bul­let! There’s just con­sis­tent daily work that, with time, be­comes a joy.
