Life is dependent on one's attitude and circumstances.


My road in life has taken me all over.
I joined a global consulting firm and was doing well for the first four years of my career.
Then I thought I should get over to the other side of the table, move cities. That was part good, part bad. I had to look for a job in 18 months.
Fortunately my boss from the first global firm was joining another one and he reached out to me and I was back at work.
I guess the bug bit me again. This time I wanted to get into a start up where I was at that time deputed by the firm as interim CFO.
The start up was sold and I debated for long on whether I should start up on my own or look for a job. I decided to start up with two others: a boutique consulting firm.
Three years of that and I decided for personal reasons to immigrate to Canada and that was like starting from scratch because I didn't want to study.

Problem Solving

Day to Day

Client calls or meetings where they explain the situation they are in—could be they are trying to raise money or they are trying to increase sales. Client workshops. Quite often I take the client through workshops where staff can understand the problem and co develop a solution. Problem solving—this would entail me on my laptop and working on Excel and Powerpoint on financial models, recommendations, reading research reports and providing my inputs to the co developed solution.
