Hey, I'm Yash

I'm a travel hacker, founder, innovation consultant, and data scientist. But most importantly – I'm a teacher and coach.

My Mission

The pace of innovation is getting faster, not slower. Work today looks nothing like it used to even 10 years ago. Andrew Yang's book says it best, Smart People Should Build Things.

I'm a big believer in the idea of multipotentialites. Epstein's Range discusses a similar idea to multipotentialites: that generalists across various fields are often the harbingers of innovation and disruption.

The future belongs to those who build it. Read more about why I do what I do below:

Experience

I've had experience in career coaching, teaching, management consulting, product management, data science, and various forms of entrepreneurship and leadership.

I am building LifeSchool in Richmond, Virginia.

When not building LifeSchool, I'm often coaching the altMBA, running workshops, coaching, consulting, or working on a passion project (often related to LifeSchool). I'm always interested in opportunities to learn.

Coaching

I have a limited number of one-on-one coaching engagements for early career starters or mid-career transitioners.

I also offer a variety of other coaching services – travel hacking and productivity being the most popular among them.

I can even micro-coach you through your resume, personal project(s), and interviews when you just need that last-mile guidance!

What I'm Building

I love creating new ideas, and putting them into action. Some projects become my full-time work, some are passed on, and others get put on hold (or cease to exist).

I love to "bootstrap" new ideas all the time. The goal is never to create the next "unicorn", but rather, to launch something that's concrete and useful to the audiences it's designed for.
