“Treat yourself like someone you love.” Raj Jana (27:43 – 27:45)
Raj Jana is an impact-driven entrepreneur and the host of the Stay Grounded podcast. He’s also a keynote speaker and media host who’s passionate about using business to make the world a better place.
After his mentor died of a heart attack just three months before retiring, Raj felt compelled to do something meaningful and challenge the conventional ways of how to own your success.
“Watching my mentor pass away three months before his retirement reinvigorated my sense of purpose. I didn’t care how I was going to succeed as an entrepreneur. I just knew I was going to do it.” – Raj Jana (10:37 – 11:02)
Raj founded JavaPresse, a lifestyle brand committed to transforming ordinary coffee rituals into extraordinary daily experiences. Since launching in 2015, Raj has helped over a quarter of a million people to use coffee for their daily fulfillment. He’s grown the business into a seven-figure company in less than a year—all while working a full-time corporate job.
Raj’s work has been endorsed by Daymond John of Shark Tank, and he’s been featured in Forbes, BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, and other renowned publications. At 27 years of age, Raj is the youngest recipient of the 2019 Houston Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 award for his influence on local communities.
Raj’s company is an official partner of the Make-a-Wish Foundation and has donated over fifty thousand dollars to grant wishes to children with life-threatening diseases.
After college, Raj worked as a petroleum engineer at a large oil company in Louisiana. He was making good money, and by society’s standards, he was quite successful.
But he didn’t feel fulfilled. He felt like there was something more. He began listening to podcasts and buying courses looking for a spark of inspiration to try something different along the way. This led to him launching JavaPresse.
Around the same time, his mentor and close friend passed away. This was someone who had given his life to the company and had been putting off happiness until his retirement.
This tragic event taught Raj that he didn’t want to sacrifice his health and happiness for the next forty years so he could be happy “someday.”
Own Your Success.
Raj started waking up at 5 AM to work on JavaPresse. He invested in personal development, transformed his mindset, and sharpened his marketing skills. Every day when he got back from his corporate job, he would work on his business. Within eight months, JavaPresse had grown exponentially and hit its first six-figure month.
Life is precious, and you don’t need permission to live yours.
Raj learned critical lessons that can help anyone looking to take control of their own lives. Life is precious, and we don’t have to live it on other people’s terms. You can live the life you choose, and Raj’s podcast Stay Grounded aims to inspire people to do just that.
You don’t need to know all the answers. All you need is the courage to take the first baby step. That will give you the confidence to take the second step. Your actions will soon be so massive that you’ll be inspiring others to start their own journeys.
“When you own your success and let yourself shine, you give others permission to do the same. That’s what raises the consciousness and the vibration of this experience we have as human beings.” – Diane Forster (2:56 – 3:09)
In order to be useful to others, you need to take care of yourself first. It can be something as small as treating yourself to a cup of coffee or taking a quick meditation break. Remember, you’re responsible for your own success, and you don’t need anyone else’s permission to live the life that will bring you fulfillment.
