Hi, I’m Sam Jayanti. I’m a career changer, entrepreneur and lifelong learner. I love sharing stories, inspiration, insights and resources. I started ideamix to support self-driven individuals in finding their ‘best work lives’ and to grow a community that loves living them.
As a great believer in the idea that you can do anything if you really want to, I was my own first client.
Growing up in several different countries, I learned early on that family, education, curiosity, knowledge and collaborative spirit are the most essential assets you can take anywhere. I was also taught that to whom much is given, from them much is expected.
When I encountered loss and grief as a child, it taught me to cultivate gratitude and to understand the work it takes to become strong and remain supple. I have always found that there is something more to learn and this has enabled me to evolve beyond both my achievements and disappointments.
I played tennis competitively in high school, attended Harvard University and Harvard Business School, worked in finance, consulting and tech. I married the man I fell in love with – he’s still my best friend and we have three beautiful children.
In short, I have lived different versions of doing ‘anything’ I wanted. But sometimes ‘anything’ can be overwhelming. Despite the abundance of available resources and choices, many people at different life stages wake up to the realization that they may not be living a life that truly fulfils them.
With ideamix, I’ve been able to combine a love for what I do with the joy of helping others give voice to their ideas. In hindsight, the clues were always there: I loved interacting with people, understanding what drives them and connects them to their potential. As a problem solver, I also enjoy creating order out of chaos, creating structures and sharing my insights and solutions.
