Hi I'm Puja, I've always been a high performer and over-achiever. My friends will say that I'm ambitious and tenacious! However, I spent most of my life trying to please other people. From family to friends and society's status quo, I never really felt like I fit in and I never felt like I was living for myself.
At 33, burnout and depression let me know that something had to change. I booked a flight to Mexico and literally had a 'retreat' from my daily life. It was brilliant! I learned a hell of a lot about myself. Ultimately I learned that I wasn't being true to who I am and that I didn't have real purpose in my life. But I knew there was something inside me, yearning for more...
I tapped into my tenacity and decided to flip the script!
After spending time in counselling, coaching and spiritual work, I realised what I had been holding back from, was exactly what I needed to be doing which is...
Supporting people and businesses who are a force for good. I've always cared about people and the planet but simply didn't know how to channel that in my work or life.
Before becoming a coach, I had a successful 20 year career in Marketing and PR. I worked with global brands in hospitality and travel, I worked in wellness and I loved my work but I knew it wasn't enough.
After some much needed searching, I took the brave decision to change career and channel my purpose.
I’ve gone against the grain my whole life, it’s who I am. I am a rebel and a change-maker.
I'm inspired by people doing good in the world and as a coach, I get to work with a huge range of people and organisations and as a result, get to make my own contribution to creating a positive impact.
So if you're ready to take your impact to the next level, we should have a conversation.
