Although Neeta was working to fix people's smiles on the outside as a cosmetic dentist, she knew that it was not reflecting her inner world. From being orphaned at a young age to leaving an abusive marriage and facing homelessness, Neeta is definitely an expert of resilience. Today, we share:

  • The difference between resilience and grit

  • Why she left the medical profession to pursue transformational coaching

  • Overcoming Imposter's Syndrome

  • The true meaning of Forgiveness



  • “A lot of the foundation of building resiliency is humor and not taking yourself so seriously, and to embrace change is being able to be flexible.”

  • “Grit is your availability to go through difficult situations and your tenacity to stick through something, even when it’s tough. Resilience is your ability to bounce back from a tough situation.”

  • “We continue to wear a mask where our true self is now buried, where you don’t even know who that is because you haven’t seen that person in a long time.”

  • IMPOSTER SYNDROME: ““Ego sometimes is masked to hide a lot of the insecurities. You can see this in occur current leadership, but if we pay attention to people who are in charge and there are tell-tale signs of using defensiveness and getting upset or triggered, their insecurities are getting unraveled. The ego is then trying to protect themselves. For the majority of us, when we are trying to step out of our shells, the imposter syndrome is real. “

  • The most powerful thing we can do as entrepreneurs and leaders is to recognize that we will always have (the imposter syndrome) because we’re human, but to recognize that it’s only there for our safety and we’re going to be brave and courageous and take those risks because our greatest good is so much higher than the fears that hold us back.“

  • “Emotion is just energy in motion. If it’s not getting moved, it’s getting stuck somewhere. When we’re ready to change and innovate, we’re ready to commit to something new.”

  • “Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you’re forgetting. It means that you are releasing all of the negative emotions that are attached with that experience, and you are letting that go and you are turning the page and you are tossing it out because it  allows you freedom from those toxic emotions of the grief, of the shame, of the betrayal, of the hatred, of the anger that’s been sucking your energy.”
