Who Am I!

Who Am I? its the same question which bugged mankind from millenniums. It gave rise to various scriptures, school of thoughts.

I am a High-functioning Introvert. With an IQ of 138, I officially qualify to be a genius(with less than 0.5% of the entire population of the world). However it comes with its own baggage as well. Anyhow, I am believer of “I CAN” is what matters rather than “IQ”. Books and TV-Shows/Movies are my biggest hobbies. I am a Certified CBT Coach, Certified Life Purpose Coach, Certified EFT/TFT Coach, Certified LOA Coach. I know, Lot of Certificates.. Basically, I am Certified in Reading your Mind!! Just Kidding, I cant handle that kind of Super Power. I love helping people discover their true inner self and achieve their true potential. Hence so many certificates.

The ultimate aim of this transformation initiative is to make finance a trend setter of holistic processes that are accurate and timesaving. Harikrishna has a keen interest in making the finance and risk management processes lean, to make the function a strategic partner rather than just a bookkeeper.

I love Travelling!! I have travelled somewhat better than average, although not as much as I want to!

I did explore my interest in writing, during my college days. I started a Youth Magazine “Kalarava” along with my friend. We did successfully run it for about 3 years, before our academic and professional lives caught up to us and we had to discontinue the magazine due to lack of time.

And, here I am, to give it a try again.

Wish me Luck!!
