Entrepreneur, Business Coach, 7x Author, Speaker, Podcaster, Digital Marketer

I've been selling online since 1997. And during that time, I've created and sold a wide range of products and services: Information products, Desktop Software, WordPress Plugins, Membership Sites, Online Courses, Ebooks & Kindle books, Audiobooks, Premium Podcasts, Agency Services (Marketing, SEO, Website & Membership Site setup), Webinars, Local Meetups, Consulting and Coaching.

I have coached, trained, mentored and consulted with thousands of clients in the last 21 years, from solopreneurs to side-hustlers to small businesses to mid-sized corporations. 

I’ve helped my clients create a profitable online business using digital products, membership sites, online courses and build recurring-subscription based digital products. ​

I've helped companies get more leads, make more sales, build a bigger audience, establish their brand, get more exposure in the marketplace, and ultimately grow their business.

And regardless of where you are in your journey, whether you are an individual or represent a business, I can help you take it to the next level.

“Extra! Extra!” :-)

I've been selling online since 1997.

I've created - and sold - a wide range of products and services:

  • Information products​
  • Desktop Software​
  • WordPress Plugins​
  • Membership Sites​
  • Online Courses​
  • E-books​
  • Real Books​
  • Kindle Books
  • Audiobooks​
  • Premium Podcasts​
  • Physical products like T-Shirts, Mugs, Mousepads and all kinds of Tchotchkes
  • Agency Services: Marketing, JV's, SEO, Reputation Management, Website-, Membership Site- and eCommerce Site setup
  • Affiliate Promotion
  • Webinars​
  • Local Meetups​
  • Consulting​
  • Coaching

I was the first Indian (back when I was still living in India) to sell a physical book online to an international market, back in 1998, via my first ever website, BabyNamesIndia.com (now extinct).

After failing at two brick-n-mortar businesses in India, I started looking for better opportunities in the online world, and I moved to New York in 2000, taking on a programming job at a dot-com company (remember the boom?)

In 2001, as a hobby, working nights and weekends, I created a suite of PHP and JavaScript programs for marketers at MyWebmasterInABox.com (now extinct). That's when I created the first-ever digital download protector software for PayPal and ClickBank.

In 2006, I created the second-ever Online RSS Feed Reader at LinkOverload.com (now extinct) before there was Google Reader (which is also extinct now).

In 2007, I published my first real book “No Business Like E-Business” which went on to become an Amazon category best-seller at the time (it’s outdated now – new edition coming soon).

Coming from humble beginnings in India, through my family foundation in India, my lovely wife Veena and I give back as much as we can, to children and communities in extreme poverty back in Chennai, India.

Not many business coaches can match my resume, in terms of the range of technical and marketing experience I've had, from working as a Java programmer to a senior J2EE developer skilled in many programming languages, databases, creating websites and web services to desktop software, to being a senior Software Architect at Fortune 50 companies developing and integrating large systems with tens of thousands of transactions and hundreds of millions of users, to working for the State of NY, to the sheer number of things I've sold online and offline, the kind of audiences I've built, the creative and technical stuff I've done to promote my products and services, and most importantly, the success I've had with a wide variety of products and services.

And wherever you are in your business journey, I can help you take it to the next level.
