"The goal isn't to live forever. The goal is to create something that will." Chuck Palahniu
Today, being intercultural is key to living a life which straddles your current world and future reality.

Working with forward thinking clients in India, USA, Canada was a learning and enriching experience for all. Here are some of our clients.
Organization Percolates Vision Globally : USA
Life Fitness International operates on a global basis with a diverse management team located in the company’s Tokyo, London, Rotterdam and Hong Kong offices. The senior team at Life Fitness needed thought provoking, challenging as well as creative ideas to implement the 2010 vision for the company’s international operations. With the leadership team working in 3 different continents, it was critical to align everyone on understanding principles of Leadership from Within and how it directly co-relates to creating the conditions for sustained success. The content and delivery was multi- dimensional as it had depth, practical value as well challenged the current understanding on leadership to bring about new understanding shared by the team.
The coaching sessions following the training infused life and fostered deep understanding and collaboration among leaders.
We would recommend I've Made It and Ms. Sachdev to any corporation who wants to provide a new approach, depth and meaning to existing ideas and percolate them effectively.

Ziad Khan - Director Programming and Productions- Digital Productions, Canada
I have known Anita Sachdev for several years as a friend and as a coach. She has become highly effective in the personal and professional development sphere. She is a smart, feel-good personality, with an infectious smile, and an optimistic spirit. She constantly refines her understanding of human needs.
A few years ago, when I was faced with a personal crisis, she listened carefully, asked intuitive questions, and helped me evaluate and work through the situation until we found a solution. I was encouraged by her skill and her deep understanding of the complexity of the situation. She broke it down and helped me look at rational options. Her guidance, as a professional coach over a period of time helped me overcome the hurdle!
Verona Faro - Managing Director - Solomon Page Group, LLC, New York
I feel the best thing about working with Anita as an Executive Coach was I consciously began to understand what was sub-consciously known to me. This gave super clarity to my thoughts and actions. She held the mirror in front of me, which led me on the path to self-discovery and thereafter, the Law of Karma took over.
Darayus B. Ex-CFO, Rabo Bank
Anita is a very perceptive, generous coach, who correctly and quickly assesses the needs of her clients to ensure they get the best out of the coaching experience as a whole, and out of every session. A knowledgeable professional in her field, I have found her approach to help me problem solve and decision making were useful. Alongside short-term results, she has been very focused on the bigger picture, how to efficiently use my strengths, and develop long-term sustainable solutions to become an effective leader. I am very happy to have found Anita, and am finding the coaching experience under her tutelage extremely beneficial to all aspects of my life so important when living in a new country.
