Freedom Credo

My credo.

I roll with a big heart and even BIGGER hustle.

As an advocate of liberty, I believe in all of the possibilities of being alive.

Devoted to you discovering your BEST…part cheerleader, full-freedom strategist, your kick-in-the-pants guide en route to your desired destination.

I get my fuel from living deliciously. And authentically.

I AM Vasavi Kumar. Self-discovery junkie, lover of all things non-conformist, vegetarian foodie, and freedom strategist who is obsessed with helping you achieve the FREEDOM in all that is you.

Tireless in a quest to remove obstacles from the mind. Your mind.

I help you interrupt the BS conversations that you’re having with yourself so you can get what you want. That’s what I do. That’s who I am.

So here I welcome you to my home – the House of the Free.

Here’s my promise: if you free your mind, the rest will follow. Your life will flow more freely. All it takes is your sincere desire and the bold action to activate it all.

Childhood

Imagine if you…

Felt so good, so turned on by who you are, that you pursued the life you wanted.

Developed a love of yourself so divine that honoring the temple that is your body and your mind became non-negotiable.

Walked into a room full of strangers and turned them into friends.

Really believed that you ROCKED, rather than being your own worst critic.

Were able to turn mistakes into lessons instead of seeing them as failures.

Conversed with comfort and never again worried about what to say.

Didn’t get caught in the comparison trap.

Went after that big dream – a promotion, a new business, that relationship – without apologizing or thinking “that’s for other people, not me”.

Didn’t give a DAMN what other people said (my personal fave).

Family

My path…

I grew up in a traditional Hindu household on Long Island, NY. The beautiful thing about Hinduism is that it’s not so much a religion as it is a way of life. I was raised to value education, both formal and self-education. My parents treated my sister and me to a bounty of cultural and spiritual practices that have enriched my life and my business more than I ever thought possible.

Vegetarianism, daily prayer, and respect for both knowledge (represented by the Goddess Saraswati) and money (represented by the Goddess Lakshmi) were and still are woven into the fabric of my daily life.

India

At a young age, I visited India and witnessed people living in the cruelest of conditions. Seeing people live in unspeakable poverty and struggle daily with starvation and discrimination taught me compassion and love for all human beings, regardless of socio-economic status, race, creed or age.

As a young adult, I returned to India, living there for a year and serving as a teacher to survivors of sex trafficking. It was a time of awakening for me, as my heart broke open from the suffering I witnessed while gratitude for my blessings intensified with an entirely new meaning. My Indian culture had permeated my being. It will remain part of me forever.

The bumps on the path make it yours…

At age 20, I was diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder. Battling the stigma that comes with having a condition like this has built muscles in me I didn’t even know existed! By using a blend of Eastern and Western medicine, committed spiritual practice and surrounding myself with a support network that has been my fortress, I can happily say that what was once something that I allowed to define me no longer does. I am living, thriving proof that only I can define me.

In fact, I’ve been able to not only build a business that I love, serving people like you and hanging out with some of the most interesting and influential luminaries of our time, but I’ve been able to integrate both Western and Eastern influences to create a life that I consider utterly delicious.

Do I still get bummed out when someone or something disappoints me? Do I still hear distracting chatter that creates fear in me? Do I still worry if people care about me?

Absolutely. (By the way, anyone who tells you they don’t feel this way is full of it.)

But now I have clarity, focus and a plan. And I know how to take action to produce results.

When I chose to free my mind, all the doors opened. Let me help you free yours.

Street cred.

If you’re still with me, still reading, there’s a reason…you want change in some area of your life. Congratulations

Coaches like me work with you on your life. That’s some serious stuff, so you probably want to make sure that the person you’re trusting your life with has the goods to support you in a legit way.
These things might help you confidently decide if I’m the kind of gal you can feel good about working with:

  • I’m Ivy League educated (every Indian parent’s dream). I hold dual master’s degrees from Hofstra University (Special Education) and Columbia University (Social Work).
  • I’m certified. I earned my stripes as a coach at Accomplishment Coaching, an International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited school.
  • I’m a vegetarian chef. I’m a graduate of The Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts in Austin, TX, where I pursued my lifelong dream of nourishing people’s bodies and minds. Recently, my dad and I competed in The Food Network’s Food Truck Face Off, strutting our skills and working our butts off to create yummy Indian edibles from love. It was not only fun, it solidified my desire to bring food into the “delicious living” conversation.
  • I’m an Ayurveda enthusiast. I spent two months in India to return to my roots and study Ayurveda Therapy and Nutrition. It is now my way of life and another valuable modality that I use to help heal myself and those around me.
  • I’m a best-selling author. My book, a collaboration with Sandra Yancey, Marcia Weider, Lisa Sasevich and Lisa Nichols, called Succeeding in Spite of Everything, is a best-seller. I also blog and write for some of the coolest sites on the cyber web.
  • I’m on TV. I was the resident “Keeping It Real Guru” on Kansas City Live, where I answered viewers’ questions on topics like the stuff that holds them back or how to deal with mean people. I love answering the juicy questions! You may just see me on the tube again soon, so stay tuned.
  • I’m a former radio show host. My show, Deep Talk, features some of today’s most celebrated and respected leaders. I have had the honor and pleasure of interviewing change agents like John Gray, Neale Donald Walsch, Ali Brown, Lisa Nichols, and Sonia Choquette.
  • I speak in front of hundreds of people. Some of my topics include “Sacred Hustle,” “Addiction: Looking for God in All the Wrong Places,” and my personal favorite, “The Inspiration – Action Gap.” I love to share the gold from both my studies and my life experience in my talks and connect with people this way.
  • I’m committed. I am urgent about your success and getting you to a place of freedom ASAP. I’m a straightforward, tell-it-like-it-is kinda gal. People who work best with me really want to move forward and are willing to hear the truth. I am devoted to getting to the source of your success blocks and jumpstarting real change with you to create your dream life…an unrecognizable, breathtaking, bomb-ass life. For real.
  • I’ve got life experience. Before I got the wake up call to be in service of others, I was running with the wrong crowd and making bad choices. It is an absolute miracle – and a decision – that I am able to serve in the way that I do today. I am grateful for my journey because it makes me uniquely qualified to work with anyone who beats themselves up for making wrong choices or who agonizes over the choices in front of them.
  • I pay it forward. I donate a portion of everything I make to Bring Change to Mind, an organization dedicated to removing the stigma and discrimination of those who have suffered from mental illness.

Hang with me, here in my House of the Free…a safe zone of naked truth and no judgments.

I want to help you get there so bad. And I already like you, so let’s start talking.

You are always welcome here. You will see that once you decide to live deliciously, there was always room for you.

The first step is yours.

Devoted to you and your freedom,

Signature
