People change for the better when they join the Career Design program.

        It has been a wonderful journey of discovering and exploring myself and my capabilities. A constant hustle to strive for more and to gain that confidence that I can do it all. My whole perspective has changed and I have a better knowledge of what I want of my life as a result.

        This has been a life changing decision for me. What I like most is how Saurabh makes us aware of concepts and titbits related to career and life which no one else would have done otherwise. He encourages us to proactively work upon the things that matter most.

        This program helps you in becoming aware of who you exactly are and who you intend to become. It is a means to achieve what you truly believe in and the life that you envision for yourself. It’s not just a course but a different way of living: a practice to not settle and fight the resistance.

        After going through each session, my perspective towards life changed almost completely. Instead of hiding, I decide to show up. I have started investing time in something which I really love to do. I am becoming in-charge of my life.

I strongly believe that every individual is extremely capable and intelligent. My goal as a teacher is to enable them to access that vast pool of intelligence within them.

— Saurabh Mithal


The best way to get to know me is to read my blog (I write one daily) at saurabhmithal.com


I am a writer, a creative, a teacher and a coach.


I have spent the last 10 years finding the answer to what a career really means? It's been a journey of rejecting ready-made shallow answers. It's been a journey of curiosity, of standing out, of fighting the system.


I have seen rock-bottom and I have risen from there and built a career I am proud of working on every day. I have learnt the hard lessons the hard way. I have refused to surrender and fit-in and accept mediocrity.


I want to teach you things that have worked for me and my students. Each and every concept it vetted and effective.


It's not easy. But that's not what we are signing up for any way.


It's about showing up. It's about doing the work that matters to us.
