An Interview with Jasraj Hothi, Entrepreneur and Founder of INF club.
As a child, Jas Hothi thought everyone was like him. It wasn’t until his teens that he realized he was different from others. And it became even more apparent when his career took off while in the corporate world. His big “AHA” came when he had the best year ever in sales recruitment, having made “Employee of the Year.” Most people would love to have that kind of accolade. But for Jas, something wasn’t right. He was unfilled and just kept wondering why he wasn’t happier.
Discovering that he was a highly sensitive introvert was a powerful realization for Jas. Sensitive introverts don’t always know they’re different because, as he puts it, “we become used to our own reality.” Also, when you become used to what you know, anything different is frightening. It turns out, for Jas, the Universe was nudging him in another direction, and he knew he had to trust his intuition.
This episode is a real down-to-earth conversation with Jas as he shares his courageous journey to step out of his comfort zone (without a plan) to recalibrate his life. He learned to trust his intuition, honor, and accept who he was and allow that to guide him to make new and positive choices. Although he has many interests and passions, he’s committed to sharing what he’s learned to help other highly sensitive introverts acknowledge and understand their unique gifts so they can better navigate the world.
