Talk us through your background and your journey as an individual and entrepreneur.
Life, circumstances, situations, people, everything changes at every moment. Nothing is permanent and therefore, change must become a new constant to survive. Hi, I am Khushbu. My mission is to help individuals discover their potential and empower them to become independent, mentally strong, and successful.
I did my schooling from Bharti Vidya Bhawan’s Vidyashram, Jaipur and further pursued a management degree from Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra. From management to coaching life took a U-turn when after working in a corporate as an HR I realized this is not my cup of tea, I need more, I need masses and my mission is something else, till then, I was dead unsure of what it could be. My motto is “Love affair with life”, whatever you are, learn to love yourself, only then you will be able to accept that you need certain changes to be made internally in your behavior, attitude, and perception or externally in your attire and personality. I am a personality coach; my core areas are habit building and image transformation. I love talking and moving people to stretch and become better versions of themselves. I love what I do, and this gives me immense power and a sense of fulfilment.

If you had to start over, would you choose a corporate career or being an entrepreneur and why?
I have always been into a corporate career, went into academics, still into academics and I work as a freelancer as well. I am never against the corporate career, or someone who would promote people to leave corporate and become a freelancer, for me the definition is entirely a different game possibly because I always believe in “love what you do and do what you love.” I love my job being a personality coach and a trainer, this gives me a sense of accomplishment each day and every moment, it has given me a disciplined life, and million ways to deal with situation and different sets of personalities, it’s been 8 years now, and I wake up early finish chores and sleep on time with a complete satisfaction with sincerely no sense of job dissatisfaction. However, that doesn’t defy that I am against businesses and freelancing, I come from a family where people are into businesses, government jobs and are at their peak in corporate careers heading big fours what I understand from this is that at the end of the day it is totally the game of what suits your lifestyle and where your heart is. I believe in personal branding and that’s what I do on different social media platforms, and I get responses and clients who need genuine help and guidance. To me it’s not about being an entrepreneur or being a corporate employee, being an entrepreneur, it taught me to work 24/7 literally 24 hours giving me dynamic and flexible approach towards life. Everything else can be worked out only if you follow your heart, and you are happy doing whatever you opt for.

Tell us about the uniqueness of your Brand startup?
We at “Love affair with life” help people with mindset coaching and personality transformation. I avoid dealing with people on a superficial level, I deal with people on a deeper level by helping them transform their lives through habit building. Not only group sessions, but people also benefit a lot from one-on-one sessions as well. Self-management, habit transformation, dealing with time management and career issues is another thing that I master. Started my meditation journey 13 years ago, I am associated with Vipasana group and their meditational practices, and I believe this as my uniqueness, nothing in my profession comes from fad or trend, it has a root and solutions comes from experience and everyday spiritual practices.

Tell us about your social initiatives?
I work with a lot of NGOs, and I am associated with an NGO TRAFFIC TUTOR as Treasurer and event organizer, our main aim is to create awareness regarding Traffic regulations to minimize road causalities to as minimum as zero.

What is your business success mantra that you have embraced as you sought to establish your success story?
My mantra is simple to follow and lead “When the Universe you live in is limitless, why do you limit yourself”. Every story is a success story, mine is no different, the only difference possibly could be that I never stop, and this is what I would like to express here as well, secondly, love and gratitude are the two most important ingredients, always keep them handy. Always maintain you determination to succeed, you will meet a lot of people who keep telling you “You can’t do this, alone is not a journey, we need people, without me or our services it’s a total loss for you” trust me and trust your ideas and your journey. Be courageous enough to smile and pass. Do not invite stagnancy, and do not settle, we are humans not dust, and what settles is dust not us. Understand about your market, your audience, what is your niche, what they want from you. Everyone has a different journey, only you would know what you want from your business and how do you wish to achieve that, never try to get manipulated by others, process your thought and be open about them.

One special Quote/message for all communities/brands.
If you cannot fly, keep running, if you cannot run, keep walking, if you cannot walk, keep crawling, but keep moving, even when you don’t find your true calling, because once you start the journey you keep failing and succeeding, and these success and failures lead you to the right direction. No one has ever achieved anything overnight, it takes time, hard work, patience, persistence, and focus. Employee the best people and be the best employer, whoever you network with must connect with you on a higher spiritual level.

Any other happy moments /achievements you would like to share with the world.
Many, when I scored the highest marks in psychology in 12th that is when it struck me to do something around this, that is when I realized do what you love and love what you do is a true thing. Being awarded with a PhD degree was another level achievement and a moment of pride for me and for my family, it was a consistent 5-year dedication and hard work more than that, it was a moment of gratitude and fulfillment. I have Worked with more than 10,000 learners, helped them grow in their career, transformed habits, and re-shaped their belief systems which is indeed an achievement for me. A lot of people dream of becoming a student at IIM, being at IIM BG for a talk I consider as achievement and a moment of great pleasure.
