Entrepreneur, investor and artist Payal Kadakia brings a fresh perspective to your understanding of goals. She knows a lot about setting big goals and reaching them.
She founded ClassPass and over a decade grew it to become the leading fitness and wellness membership service valued at over $1 billion. Mindbody acquired ClassPass in October 2021. At that time, members had logged more than 100 million hours of workouts across 30,000 partner studios in over 30 countries.
“When I went on this journey, I knew that I was going to be in it for the long term, but more importantly, I knew that I wasn’t going to stop until I solved the problem I set out to,” Payal says. “And I didn’t doubt myself for a second to say I wasn’t going to solve it.”
We’re going to talk today about how you can upgrade your own goal setting with “LIFEPASS: Drop Your Limits, Rise to Your Potential.”
Using her company Class Pass as an example, Payal highlights the importance of knowing your strengths, your unique talents, who you are, and investing in the right people and mentors to show you the way.
Payal gives insight on how to set boundaries in service to your priorities, and how every minute of the day belongs to YOU, not anyone else. This means you don’t have to hold onto any guilt about doing what’s right for you.
You’re more likely to reach your goals when you get to let go of the pressure to achieve a traditional kind of success and instead fuel your life with purpose. And when you focus on a life of creativity, you get to live the life you most want to live.
“What made me a good entrepreneur was my passion for dance, was my creativity, was my ability to move swiftly in and out of things,” Payal says.
The 4-step LifePass Method combines intuition, pie-in-the-sky dreams, micro focus, and macro goals.
Payal, an Operations Research and Economics graduate from MIT, been featured in most major news outlets; listed as Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People; and named to Fortune‘s 40 under 40 list.
She formerly worked as a consultant at global management consulting firm Bain & Company and was part of Warner Music Group’s Digital Strategy and Business Development Group.
She’s also got an extraordinary artistic side. She founded The Sa Dance Company in 2008 and serves as Artistic Director.
