    Season 3 : Episode 7 : Elena Cardone on being an exceptional wife, mother, entrepreneur and 10X empire builder.

    Elena Cardone is one of the most exceptional women I have ever met in person over the last few years.  She has been instrumental in pushing Grant in achieving his Billionaire status and apart from that has been an exceptional mother to Sabrina and Scarlet Cardone. 


    All of this despite having a very traumatic teen experience and lots and lots of disappointments in life. This is one podcast episode where Elena opened up on so many things and such valuable advice to all listeners.  


    Truly a must watch episode.  In case you'd like to follow Elena Cardone on Instagram you can find her on https://www.instagram.com/elenacardone/?hl=en

    Season 3 Episode 6, Saumya Sharma on bouncing back emotionally and mentally after setbacks.

    Season 3 Episode 6, Saumya Sharma on bouncing back emotionally and mentally after setbacks.

    Saumya is one of the finest emotional, mental wellbeing coaches I've met.  She was recently picked as BWBusinessWorld 40 under 40. 

    It's an episode of the SBYND podcast that's different. While in the past we've spoken a lot about struggles around money, business and the likes. This episode covers a different area and talks about overcoming the mental and emotional challenges that people face and gives some real world advice and perspective on what can be done about that. 

    A very apt episode for the post pandemic world.  Love to have your thoughts on gaurav@gauravbhagatacademy.com

    You may connect with Saumya here https://www.linkedin.com/in/saumyashharma
    or email her on saumya@thebutterfly-effect.com

    Season 3 : Episode 5. Aditya Gupta, Entrepreneur, Everester, Explorer on lessons from Mt. Everest and Life.

    Season 3 : Episode 5. Aditya Gupta, Entrepreneur, Everester, Explorer on lessons from Mt. Everest and Life.

    Some would call Aditya quite the risk taker.  He grew up  in the  small town of Meerut and the odds of him running the multiple businesses that scale the globe were slim.  He has achieved this through an amazing mindset and further lives his passion for adventure  and even scaled Mt. Everest in 2019 after turning 50. 

    Aditya and his companies today touch thousands of lives  in India and around the world and the lessons, insights and advice in this episode are another level altogether.  You must hear and watch this one.  Amongst my favourite lessons from this episode was the 40-80 rule of giving up and how not to fear scale (even that of the tallest mountain of the world). 

    You can follow Aditya on LinkedIn on  https://www.linkedin.com/in/aditya-gupta-310781205/

    and you may also buy his amazing coffee table book where he gives the proceeds to the charity Child Relief and You (CRY) here:

    Season 3 : Episode 4. Colonel Sunil Prem, an officer and a gentleman on lessons from the Indian Army.

    Colonel Sunil Prem may have started out against the odds in the beginning of almost every journey that he took. Be it at the back of his class as a 7-year-old or at the age of 16 when he decided to join the army. However, he eventually topped his class, won the president’s gold medal at the Indian Military Academy and also achieved a 10 on 10 CPA at IIT Kanpur. He spent 27 years in the Indian Army and won many accolades and has also authored 2 best-selling books and runs multiple companies that are leaving a global footprint.  
     
    This is one conversation at the GBA that you will thoroughly enjoy. True words of wisdom with someone that walks the talk and is going to continue to inspire millions in the years ahead.

    Season 3 Episode 2 with Deep Kalra Founder and Group Chairman Make my trip.com

    This was actually a book interview with Deep, days before the pandemic locked us all down. Truly a story of perseverance and not throwing in the towel. Such great insights shared by Deep, I just couldn't deny the world of these golden nuggets.

    Makemytrip is a Nasdaq listed company and I've the good fortune of knowing Deep Kalra and Sachin Bhatia right from the start. 

    Hope you enjoy this podcast and the format. In future the smashed bashed podcast will be in the same format. Recorded live and in person. If there is someone you know who I should be interviewing.

    You can watch the video version of this as well here.
