Want to hit $10K in your business this month?


If my life was a romantic comedy, I would be one of those socially awkward, nerdy protagonists who wears glasses and hates going to parties.

Except, that’s who I really am.

I’m Avni Palekar, and helping women entrepreneurs quit their corporate jobs and build a fun, profitable empire, while having some serious fun, is basically what I do.

As a business coach and marketing expert, I have a warm, fuzzy corner in my heart reserved for fellow entrepreneurs.

But life wasn’t always like this.

Back in 2011, I had just completed my MBA from an elite business school, and was all set to join an Investment Bank in London. (Imagine me in a grey suit, will you?)

The work was okay, the money was great, and it seemed like the right thing to do at the time. After all, I did have a large student loan to pay off.

That love affair didn’t last very long though. I found the work really boring.

Back in India, I decided to work with Unilever in Marketing. And that’s really where I learnt all the possibilities of the gorgeous online world.

In a short span of four years, I led massive digital campaigns and initiatives for some of the biggest brands in the world, and mastered the art and science of digital marketing. I had finally found something I loved to do.

Except there was one problem.

I wasn’t cut out for the corporate world.

The idea of sitting at a corner desk in a massive office all my life, made me feel invisible, and pretty blah.

I wanted to do something more fun, more creative. Something that would totally make me look forward to Monday mornings.

What followed was months of escapist holidays, binge eating Baskin Robbin’s Bavarian Chocolate ice-cream, and Googling ‘How to find your life purpose’.

In May 2015, I finally did it. I quit my job, and started building an online empire.

The rest as they say, is history.

Today, I work with women to help them create super-cozy, ‘feel good’ marketing strategies and a totally crush-worthy business model that leads to raving fans, consistent clients and money in the bank (finally!).

I have a degree in psychology, an MBA from an elite business school, a certification in coaching and 5+ years of experience working in Online Marketing for both large global brands and small cozy businesses. 

Which basically means I live and breathe this stuff, and love every minute of it!

When I am not helping women build profitable businesses, you'll probably find me studying iconic brands, binge watching Netflix or planning my next vacation.

Bring out the popcorn...there's more!          

1) I worked as an Investment Banker in London for a while, before calling it quits. The Good – I earned tons of money to pay off my student loans. The Bad – I got bored out of my mind.

2) While in London, I actually went to Notting Hill, looking for the cute blue door, and hoping to bump into Hugh Grant in a cozy bookstore.

3) Over the last few years, I have travelled to about 11 odd countries, visited the most luxurious hotel in the world, swam with dolphins, petted lions and tigers, experienced some of the best Michelin star restaurants, and worked with some mind-blowing coaches.
Oh, and married my college sweetheart. #FellowNerd #FellowMarketeer #IncrediblePhotographer

4) Over the last one year, I have also worked with inspiring women from all over the world. And picked up a new accent every other week. #PerilsOfGoingGlobal 

5) I don’t know how to drive.

6) The one thing I wanted to do before I turned 30 was to be an entrepreneur. I am 29 today, and pretty legit, if you ask me.

7) I truly believe that entrepreneurship is like a crash-course in personal development. It’s ugly, it’s messy and it’s totally worth it.

8) Leaving my corporate job in May 2015, and jumping headfirst into the entrepreneurial world was the best thing I ever did for myself.
