Summary
Teaching/mentoring Tutoring Productivity Programming Internet Entrepreneur Life Coaching
Hello,
I have done many things in life from living away from home in many cities, living in US life for nearly a decade working in top companies to taking the biggest decision in life to leave a high paying job to come back to India to become an independent freelancer cum entrepreneur. I have immense learnings from making this decision, lived through many fears, stressful situations. I went from earning ten lakhs a month and driving a racing car to office to only earning 5000 a month in my transition phases to successfully building up towards a solid independent career and possibly a startup on the side too.

As a child, I wasn't studious or sincere and was very shy, and from that to what I am today has been a tremendous journey. I wouldn't say I haven't made any mistakes in life, and I feel many mistakes can be avoided if I had access to some real help and guidance in my developing years. This is why joining TapChief is remarkable for me. Feel free to get in touch with me for anything and if you want guidance in transforming your life forever. I can help with life coaching, to teaching you computer science or getting into business or startups. I also have many tools and techniques to improve daily productivity and methods for increasing motivation so that you can live a life of purpose and enjoy every part of it. I have done it all and thankfully having good results.



Best regards,
Harshay
