A Method to
It may seem daunting, even out of reach, but building a successful career or a profitable company is not as hard as it may appear. The principles of personal and business growth remain the same. I have created this program to replicate the success I've had with some of my life-coachees I've been mentoring on a one-on-one basis. I felt more people would benefit if I could share the wisdom and learning with a smart group of aspirants who wished to take their careers and ventures to the next level. Hence, this program: walk the dragon. Because building a business is exactly like walking the dragon. Once tamed, it's immensely powerful. Until then, you'd better watch out.
People succeed for different reasons but they fail for the same ones. Understand what it takes to succeed.

Schedule & Curriculum
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM?
A vision is the foundation of a successful enterprise. Yes, it can change and evolve, but it must be there. Vision is the soul of your company. It helps you prioritize and chart the path to success.
Discover what you care about and learn how to crystalize your vision.
WHAT ARE YOU SELLING?
Understand the psychology of sales. Focus on benefits, not features.
People don't buy products, they buy an outcome, they buy a better version of themselves, I read somewhere. Some of the world's most successful companies are sales-driven.
Learn how to build the culture of focus within your organization.
It is tempting to try and do many things, but often, such an approach is the recipe for disaster. Failure is inevitable in the absence of laser focus. Drop what isn't your core business.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
Understand and master the science of persuasive communication.
In all things internal and external, what and how you communicate is the singular most important factor. Think about it: all sales, marketing, hiring, advertising, fund raising is about good communication.
WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?
Find out who your customer is and how to get noticed. Attract Attention.
Nobody can buy from you if they don't know you exist. Do you know who your customer is? Since you can't be everything to everyone, zero in on your market segment.
WHO IS LISTENING?
Learn how to write a compelling business plan. Essential for funding.
Writing a business plan is not about producing a document for the sake of it. A good plan helps you see where you stand and what your challenges are. It shows you gaps and opportunities.
WHAT ARE YOU UP AGAINST?

Growth depends on
Truth be told, ten years ago when I became a monk, I didn't think that my experience in the business world or my MBA etc. would ever come handy or even be of use to humanity. I didn't realize that my material success could have valuable learning for many entrepreneurs and aspirants. But, it changed when I began life-coaching a handful of highly successful individuals. I felt I should extend this mentorship to a broader group of people passionate about their career and business ideas. So, here I am. For you. With you.
Nothing or no one can guarantee success, but we can increase the odds greatly.
That's exactly what Walk the Dragon program is for.
Whatever you invest in diligently grows. Your career or business is no different. Walk the Dragon is your investment in your future.
