Our Why and Our Mission

Our Why: 

We are here to empower you to build a better life, so that you can stay balanced, while taking on the world. 

Balance is a sense of peace and harmony where all parts of our life work together, creating momentum that'll disrupt the negativity in the world. Balance brings us together. It unites us. It leads us to our next level.

Our Mission: 

We are here to help you take control of your professional, personal, and relational life. Find what's working, improve what's not, and figure out how you'll reach your dream life. Bringing balance back into your life. 

Our coaching services are grounded in Positive Psychology, Leadership Development, Career Counseling, Mindfulness and Meditation, and supported by assessments (Myer's Briggs Personality Inventory [MBTI] and Strong Interest Inventory [SII] ).

Simanto Khandaker, M.A.

Over the past 10+ years, since 2009, I've been coaching individuals on their career, relationship and finding purpose in life. I've had the pleasure of working with CEOs to recent graduates, predominantly in business, technology, and healthcare.

Here are my guiding principles:

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." - African proverb

"I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt nothing and succeed." - Robert H. Schaller. 

These are my truths:

I love my family and friends. I love food. I love listening and learning. I love helping people. 

These get me into good trouble:

Curiosity. Perseverance. Meditation.

These get me into trouble:

Ideas, creativity, and wanting to help everyone, all the time.

Nerd stuff (I love being one too):

Bachelors in Psychology

Masters in Counseling

Certificates:

  • Positive Psychology ( in progress - 2021)

  • Career Counseling

  • Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging

  • Mindfulness & Meditation Teaching 

  • Hypnosis in Psychotherapy

  • Six Sigma Green Belt

  • Data Analytics

I could talk and listen for hours about neuroscience, behavioral economics, and philosophy.

My Past: 

My family immigrated to the United States in 1995, leaving behind their family and friends, business and a comfortable life to build a better life for us (my siblings). No matter how we lived, the message was always constant; be grateful for what you have, help others, and know that you will be okay. 

My Present: 

I love coaching: so I am a career coach during my 9-5; and I practice at Balanced At Last from 6 - 9pm. I just picked up "golfing" during COVID, mainly the driving range to build my skills. My top drive was 180 feet/yards (however they measure).
