Gurunath Hari has over 25 years of corporate experience, including leadership and management roles. His working life started at the end of the pre-computer era and continues to the present ‘everything-mobile’ era. His work and life saw him toil hard on many soils around the world including India, the Middle East, Europe, countries in South East Asia and the United States. He is the youngest of four children born into a household that was barely above the poverty line. This meant that as a child, his family could not even afford toothpaste, so they switched to tooth powder instead. He could not afford to renew worn-out canvas shoes more than once a year, so he would insert makeshift cardboard insoles to protect his young feet from getting burnt by the molten tar roads baking under the blazing summer sun in Mumbai. After losing his mother when he was 23, adversity hit again between the years 1999 and 2001 – Hari lost his father, his child and his job. During the one year he was unemployed, he used his innate talent for pursuing better alternatives and leveraging his strong medical background to discover the 6 Dimensions of Wellness and supplemented it with a pocketful of purposes in life. This helped him make common-sense choices and take massive action that led him to rebuild his career from scratch and to become a patiently-made millionaire by the age of 47. This book aims to help millions like him out there, pursue life’s opportunities just that bit differently. In this book, Hari, as he is more popularly called, is putting cutting-edge research and real-world life experiences to work for the benefit of all.
Hari currently works as a Sales Excellence and Leadership Instructor in a major multi-national IT corporation. He lives in Singapore with Lakshmi, his wife of 22 years and their two children Nandhitha and Aanandkumar.
