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.
This special leadership and entrepreneurship program will be conducted by Om Swami to help you build successful careers and profitable companies.
People with Aspiration
Who is it For?
For outside-the-box thinkers serious about growth...
Walk the Dragon is unlike any other program I've ever conducted. To make it meaningful and to ensure that you derive maximum benefit, it is imperative that you set aside about six hours every week for the entire duration of the program.
Every Sunday talk of mine will be followed by a 30-min Q&A with the participants. You will be recommended a book for reading in your own time before the next session. Plus, there will be a case study every week.
1-hr live talk
30-min live Q & A
Optional Case Study
4 hrs of Reading
Every week you will need to commit roughly six hours to the following activities:
I will pick one theme every week relevant to business and career growth.
You will be recommended a book you will need to read before your next session.
Q & A
After the talk, the floor will be open for participants to ask any questions.
Do not enrol if you don't have six hours to devote every week.

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?
A recap of your learning gained in this program with a longer Q&A session.
Revisit everything learned over the previous six weeks and consolidate your understanding in starting, running and growing your enterprise. Crystalize your wisdom and insight.

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.

Can't Afford it?
Maybe, it's not your priority.
Affordability is mostly a question of setting your priorities straight. If you perceive the value in this program, you will find a way to enrol. Just like you find a way to pay your rent or mortgage or buy that laptop or phone. Besides, please remember that this program is for budding entrepreneurs and working professionals.

We'll see what we can do. At any rate, you'll need to earn your spot in this program. There's no free lunch.
I genuinely believe that you will benefit from this program. You cannot cancel your spot, so book carefully.

If you aren't happy with the program, you get full money back.
Nothing or no one can guarantee success, but we can increase the odds greatly.
That's exactly what Walk the Dragon program is for.

So You are not Sure...
Indecisive people do not make good leaders or followers. They can be good advisors at times but that's about it.
Usually, when people can't decide in a situation like this, it's often not because they don't have the resources or the time, it's just that they haven't trained their minds to take a decision when it matters the most.
If you wish to start or build a business, or if you want to take your career to the next level, there is no reason for you to not take your ambition seriously. Walk the Dragon is simply an investment in advancing your career.
You can sit on the fence and watch opportunities go by or you can take a decision now. The choice is yours. As is your life. You decide.
