What’s truly possible if we remove the barriers of fear and self-doubt? If our character shapes our destiny, how do we hone our individuality into something aware, independent, and effective? What can we do to optimise our physical and mental performance? What role does faith play in designing a truly successful life? Most importantly, how do we get past the narratives society is hell bent on feeding us and seek out paths that lead straight to our desired destination, be it success, happiness, thriving relationships, or simply a balanced life

Experible podcast with its guest interviews and solo episodes answers all these questions and more. Join Krati Mehra for radically transparent, unapologetically vulnerable, no BS conversations that will challenge you to consider new perspectives, adopt new attitudes, explore unfamiliar ideas and avenues so you can finally, live a life that is not defined by old fears or dysfunctional narratives.

In the interview episodes, we dive deep into the stories and struggles of experts (entrepreneurs, scientists, authors, creators, and coaches) with strong convictions who, through their experiences, show us to what is truly possible and how we can turn our ambitions into reality. We also talk to subject experts with knowledge that can enhance our lives in unexpected ways.

In the solo episodes, Krati discusses concepts, tools, and practices relevant to developing a strong character, a healthy mindset, and the emotional weaponry that allows you to live by design and even on bad days, love what you see in the mirror.
