‘Fears don’t define us; but how we face them, does that!’ This is the mantra Richa Chandra lives by. She is actually the driving force and face behind the success and visibility of many coaches, entrepreneurs and workshops.
Born and brought up in Norway to Indian parents, Richa has always believed that her roots and heart belong to both these nations. Growing up, she’s experienced a beautiful blend of cultures and chose to keep it as a part of her identity. Richa always had an affinity for communication, problem-solving and learning new skills; so while she grasped the meaning of ethical business practices from her father; it was her mother from whom she picked up the interpersonal skills. These inherent values have given her a wonderful way of connecting with others and helping them discover themselves while flourishing as individuals and enterprises alike.
Having built multiple businesses (both offline and online) in a wide variety of metier, including coaching and meditation; her main focus these days (when she is not interviewing successful and inspirational figures) is helping others find their true calling, and be visible as who they are and how they want to be seen.
Richa is a huge fan of Anthony Robbins, who is also her inspiration for being a coach. So after participating in many of his coveted workshops like Unleash the Power Within, Date with Destiny and Business Mastery, she chose to be certified NLP Master Practitioner and forge her path forward.
These skills have enabled Richa to work successfully as a career coach, and while doing so she has helped many businesses, people and has worked with NAV(Norway’s social support system), among other notable enterprises.
Richa also has experience with family and relationship coaching and has found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences. She feels, as people, we have our lives woven with many aspects and we need to be aware of them in order to grow and evolve.
But it’s the business coaching aspect that Richa Chandra is most passionate about and it is based on her personal experiences. In 2015, she went through a harsh phase – professionally and personally, and many thought she was done and dusted. It was a time when hardships and second-guessing the decisions went hand in hand and she did not have much to go on. But Richa was resilient and determined to rebuild her entity and she did so! Since then, she has written 3 books that have become the main Norwegian textbooks in teaching Indian Dance, compiling her experiences and knowledge as an Indian classic dance artist with an illustrious career. Rich also wrote and published her first book on meditation in 2019, titled as ‘ Proven benefits of Meditation’, which is the base for her online course.
By 2019 she was a successful business person with many collaborations, online courses, various business ventures, numerous accolades and awards. Richa did all of this with a smile and according to her, when you have an ‘Abundance Mindset’, you constantly look at the possibilities and challenge yourself to be better. She also believes in empowering others and has mentored many budding entrepreneurs and individuals with successful careers.
As of today, she’s published author, an international speaker, a business coach, a mentor and a renowned dance artist and meditation teacher. There are many hats that Richa dons but she believes that our biggest assets are empathy and the fortune of playing a part in someone’s achievements. In 2019, Richa Chandra was presented with the Global Woman Club`s Award for Norway’s most aspirational businesswoman.
