Fabulous Body is a wellness company founded by Akash Sehrawat.
His life revolves around the P3 Model, a framework that he created.
P3 Stands for: Passion Purpose Profits
Being passionate about something can be a beautiful feeling, but it’s selfish and cannot contribute to one living a meaningful and a fulfilling life.
What one needs is a Life Purpose.
What if your passion ultimately converts into a life purpose, something like a mission statement.
Akash takes his work as his mission and so the number one problem that he is trying to solve is to:
“Make wellness education accessible and affordable to millions through online courses, blog articles, youtube videos and other content in different formats.”
He has been misguided by conventional wisdom for a very long time. But, he never gave up and found better and smarter ways to become fit and healthy. And now that he knows that most conventional wisdom is wrong, he feels responsible in educating and teaching the world, the right way of doing things.
He has been privileged that he could afford good education and because of it, he is what he is!
And so he wants to provide the world with affordable wellness courses and tons of free content to either help them build a fabulous body and/or kickstart their wellness careers.
With the power of internet, it’s possible to keep the cost down to a bare minimum at the same time reach a lot of people in a very short time.
