Rachana Gupta

I am Rachana Gupta, a happy and highly spirited woman, who loves being the sunshine in the life of my dearest 10 year old son and my loving husband, Vishal who was my schoolmate and is now my soulmate. I love leading life to the fullest, spending time with my family and friends, travelling , listening to music and enjoying wine with my loved ones. I have been a part of the corporate world for the last 16 years as a BPO professional heading large teams in learning and development and customer experience . In 2015, when I officially hit middle-age and was celebrating my being over the hill, I was enlightened with where my passion lies and decided to seriously do something about this. So here I am, getting ready to spread my happiness quotient in people's lives and creating a long term positive impact as Happiness Coach. I live in Mumbai and can be reached at rachanavgupta@gmail.com
