Becoming an Entrepreneur

Well, this was the biggest step of my life so far! I left a comfortable, very well paying job and became an entrepreneur so that I could focus on my websites.

With the tremendous growth of my websites, I was starting to get torn between my job and the websites. Not wanting to do injustice to either, I decided it was time to work full time on the websites!

You can get all the details about this and a small video at “Becoming an entrepreneur – Leaving my job, working full time on my websites“.


Getting a mention in Business Today

My views were quoted in an article in Business Today, a very reputed business magazine.

The article dealt with ULIPs and the changes being brought about in them by IRDA.

Last year also saw the launch of – the Hindi website on personal finance and financial planning.

The Hindi version of sometime back, but it did not have its own identity. Now, it has its own, easy-to-remember domain name!

Note: I have not been able to publish very regularly on in the past year. Going forward, I am going to be much more regular there!


Price increase of “My Financial Plan” service

My Financial Plan” is a personalized and customized financial planning service offered by me.

The price of this service was increased to Rs. 4,999 during the last year. But even at this new price, the service is better priced than most of the competitors. It remains an excellent value-for-money service even today.

If you don’t have a financial plan yet, please consider enrolling for the “My Financial Plan” financial planning service. For more details, please check out “My Financial Plan“.


Moving back to India

Again, long time readers of would know that I started this website while I was working in USA (Manhattan, New York City).

I worked there for 3 years, and returned to India last year after the birth of my son, Rishi.
