You & I
IS THIS YOU?
You’re smart. You’re motivated. You’re a do-er. You’re an action taker.
You’re tired of being stuck in a box.
You’re craving the freedom
To fully express yourself, to unleash your inner genius
AND to make good money, doing work you love, on your own terms
Without sacrificing your life, your health, your kids, your sanity or your integrity for it.
I’m here to help.
I help women like you monetize your genius.
Building highly profitable businesses in order to create the impact, the freedom, the lifestyle, that you’ve been dreaming of it for so long
Hi, I’m Richa Jain.
I’m a fiercely compassionate Business Strategist who helps women like you monetize your genius. Turning your passion, your purpose, your expertise into a profitable online business.
My super power is
Helping you cut through the chaos
By finding the most effective, efficient and EASY way
To get your business from where it’s at , to where you want it to be.
Over the years, I’ve helped hundreds of women from across America, Europe and Australia build their online businesses – while running my own international business, from home, on the outskirts of Pune, India – in those snippets of time when #mommyDuty permits.
I help you take your ambitious, seemingly impossible, big picture, world changing, ideas and break them up into small, do-able, byte-sized chunks – to help you grow your business faster and with ease!
THEY SAID IT BETTER …
Honestly, I always have trouble talking about myself! I hate defining myself or putting myself in a box. Because I don’t fit in. I’m an INTJ. INTJs make up just two percent of the population, and women with this personality type are especially rare, forming only 0.8%.
Here’s what 16Personalities says about INTJS, and honestly, this is what clients also say about working with me!
They easily take in complex principles and techniques and change them into clear and actionable strategies. No other personality type comes close to their ability to assess and organize concepts.
Architects can usually sort out the “noise” of a situation. They then find the core thread that needs to be pulled to unravel messes – which they then put back together again. In the process, they produce the most elegant solutions to problems.
Skilled at hacking anything life throws their way, Architects are able to break down and learn from almost any system. They then use the ideas found there wherever they’re needed.
HOW I GOT HERE …
I’d been on the treadmill non-stop for the last 20 years.
I wasn’t really ambitious and gunning for the corner office. I was just a perfectionist. Typical Type-A Virgo. So I’d push myself to be the absolute best at whatever I took up.
In my corporate career, my work had always been demanding. And I never shied away from it. I loved a challenge. I loved doing the impossible. Pushing myself. Striving. Achieving.
I did everything I was supposed to be doing. I had an awesome job! Bought a car! Bought an apartment! Traveled the world! Got Married! Had a kid! Settled down!
But I wasn’t happy. I was miserable. I felt, well, like a hamster on a wheel. I realized that the path I was on, was just not me. That’s not what I wanted from life. It was as if I was living a double life – in two very different worlds.
The corporate persona – ace coder, then awesome manager, delivering against impossible deadlines, fire fighting and fixing things that couldn’t be fixed.
On the way home, the-fix-it-all princess turned into Cinderella. I’d return to the second shift. An abusive marriage. Cooking. Cleaning. Laundry. Burping (the kid). Cooking some more. And hating it all.
From the outside.. I “had it all”. And yet on the inside, I felt like a total and utter failure. That my life was falling apart. Like I didn’t matter. That I hadn’t done enough. That I wasn’t enough. No matter how hard I tried.
I was juggling way too many roles. I was often at crossroads, watching those roles clash. I had lost touch with who I was, and what I really wanted.
I got only an hour or so with my son each day. Most of that was spent cajoling him to eat, or have a bath, or not throw the bowl out the balcony (we lived on the fifth floor back then). I never quite got to actually enjoy that hour with him. (Check out my old mommy blog!).
I was perpetually exhausted. Perpetually sick (migraines, breathing problems, eye issues, low BP, fainting spells..yes, all the weird inexplicable stuff).
It felt like there was no way out.
While I hate labels, here are some I do identify with: intuitive, empath, Virgo, introvert, INTJ, Manifesting Generator, feminist, traveler, trail-blazer, single mom, spiritual maverick.
I have BTech & MTech degrees from IIT-Bombay; MPWE (Entrepreneurship Program for Women) from IIM-Bangalore.
I have 2 Tech patents to my name & have worked at the world’s best semiconductor software companies – Nvidia, Broadcom, Texas Instruments.
2014 brought it all to a head. It was the year of courage for me.
In early 2014, I made a down payment on my dream house.
A few months later, I quit my high-paying corporate job.
And then a few months later, as the abuse got worse, I finally plucked up the courage to force the Ex out.
My son was then just 5 yrs old.
A few months later, I found the Ex had been lying to me about “everything” – his job, his background – for years.
End of 2014, I found myself a broken, single mom, with no job, and a huge mortgage on her head.
I spent most of 2015 and 2016 crying. In grief, in rage, in relief and a realization of the abuse I’d been putting up with.
THE SHORT VERSION
I started a mommy blog in 2008 – who knew that’d lead me to Internet Marketing and the work that I do today!
My first business was a gaming lounge in 2010. It got me building websites, dabbling in social media marketing, and going back to business school to learn more about Entrepreneurship!
I ran a tech writing firm and a web design business… before my current avatar as a business strategist!
So…I had to work smart. Figure out what I could do, working from home. Around the school schedule. Heck – school’s operational less than 150 days a year – and I have no other child support!
I started out with what came easiest to me – writing! After years of running a free mommy blog and personal blog – I started writing for others. And turned it into a small tech writing business (go check it out here). Our first client was Udemy – and we wrote over 400 articles for them that year! We wrote about SEO and internet marketing, web design and a whole lotta other geeky stuff.
After joining a couple of “business courses” I found myself also creating websites for fellow students… heck I’d been working on WordPress since 2008! And I’d learnt everything about blogging and SEO and user experience from the likes of Pat Flyn, Darren Rowse, Ramit Sethi, Neil Patel etc. Creating classy, elegant, high converting websites just came naturally to me!
By 2017, I built two “international businesses” – working from my home, in Pune, India.. in between school holidays and court dates and a whole lotta crying and feeling sorry for myself!! Not bad eh?!
Pretty soon website clients were asking me for MORE. MORE strategy sessions that is! In the process of creating their website – I was helping them clarify their niche, understand their target market better, spruce up their copy and create irresistible offers! They often said I gave better advice than their business coaches!
It was only in early 2018, after I was done with the crying and greiving
That I was able to fully own MY GENIUS ie
- helping my clients cut through the chaos
- by finding the most effective, efficient and EASY way
- to get them from where they are , to where they want to be.
Heck, it took me a long time to realize it – but that’s EXACTLY what I’d been doing all through my corporate career! That’s the whole reason why I was always to deliver seemingly impossible projects! Just that now, instead of leading software development projects, I’m now helping clients develop their businesses!
WHERE I AM TODAY
Since Feb 2017 when I finally got my son’s passport (after 18 months of struggle!), we’ve been traveling the world
- 8 weeks from San Francisco to San Diego going to almost every park in between – from national parks to theme parks (yep. local friends tell me we’ve seen & done more in CA in 2 months than they have have in 10 years!)
- 3 weeks in the remote areas of Bihar and Jharkand, India
- 2 weeks trekking the Himalayas in Nepal (to Annapurna Base Camp)
- 2 week at the beaches of Krabi & PhiPhi in Thailand
- 5 weeks through Australia: Brisbane -> Byron -> Gold Coast -> Sydney -> Melbourne.
We’ve also moved into our very own home – and paid off the mortgage!
And I’ve done it all, working when the kid’s in school, from the outskirts, of a small town, in India!
