First of all, how are you and your family doing after these Pandemic times?
As the eldest son and a responsible member of my family, I’ve always strived to do what’s best for them.
The pandemic brought difficult times to Nepal, and our middle class family was no exception.
With farm workers unavailable, markets closed, and logistics disrupted, we experienced significant losses from our agricultural lands.
However, during my 15 day quarantine in Qatar, I seized the opportunity to enroll in a Business Management course.
This crucial period proved to be a pivotal step forward in my career.
How did the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?
Businesses across industries faced operational challenges and closures due to lockdowns and safety concerns.
This disrupted the delivery of services and products to clients, causing delays, cancellations, and adjustments.
The pandemic changed people’s priorities and spending habits.
Some industries, like travel and hospitality, saw drastic declines, while others, like online retail and remote work solutions, experienced significant growth.
Clients adapted their needs and preferences accordingly.
Many individuals and businesses faced financial hardship due to job losses, business closures, and economic downturn.
This impacted their ability to pay for services or make purchases
What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?
There is no such kind of big obstacle unless you accept yourself, achievement happens when you do set your goal, believe, visualize, and work yourself strategically.
Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?
Coming from a middle class farming family, it was a constant struggle to manage both expenses and my studies.
After completing high school, I embarked on a career as a waiter at Hotel Chitwan Paradise Resort.
Three years later, I diversified my experience, working with individuals across various companies in Nepal and pursuing my own small businesses. Unfortunately, these ventures were devastated by the 2014 earthquake.
With my entrepreneurial dreams shattered, I made the difficult decision to seek opportunities abroad.
In 2015, I arrived in Qatar as a foreign employee, starting my journey as a tea boy at the Al Majed Group.
During my time there, I seized upon every opportunity for career development, taking advantage of courses offered during company downtime.
Between 2018 and 2019, I invested in individual business courses, leading to my internal promotion to an administrative role as a DC Admin.
While the pandemic presented a global challenge, for me, it became a catalyst for significant change.
As mentioned earlier, I used this period to further my education by pursuing an MBA through distance learning.
I also participated in coaching and motivational classes, all of which culminated in my graduation in 2022.
What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?
I believe every obstacle comes with an opportunity, either business or job, so I converted such kind of challenges into opportunities.
Many failures are the reason I’m here today.
The Coaching Style:
How do you innovate with coaching your clients?
In response to the pandemic, our company implemented strict “work from home” policies to minimize physical activity.
To maintain operational efficiency, we innovated our E platform with new procedures for secure online verification, streamlined approvals, contactless payments, and virtual meetings.
These innovations saved us significant time, enhanced internal collaboration, and provided a more efficient and authentic experience for both clients and vendors.
What’s unique about your coaching approach?
My coaching approach empowers, facing burnout or seeking inner peace by combining effective business motivation with evidence based risk assessment and stress management techniques, with a focus on personal growth and finding meaning at the individual level.

This includes regular customer satisfaction surveys, service feedback forms, dedicated service orientation training for new employees, and a comprehensive grading system.
As an employee, I’m empowered to participate in these initiatives and provide honest feedback, knowing that it directly contributes to creating a better experience for our clients.
If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?
Never Give Up! If you fail, change the way not your goal, your journey is in your hands. Either you run like a deer or tiger, believe in yourself, and work for it.
What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?
Everything is possible if you believe strongly in your mind, and it’ll function accordingly.
For example: if you need urgent funds, in regular life indirectly it reflects on your daily lifestyle, saving or cost cutting and finding out additional income sources, etc.
Your final thoughts?
Self care is most necessary, “pray for everyone every morning for well being, physically, mentally and peacefully, it’ll reflect on your life.”
“Mangalam Nithya Subha Mangalam”
