I started my journey with Mr. Sanjeev Pandiya way back in the early 2020’s and am also one of the first members of the ‘Guru Program’. Over the years, it became a relationship that knocks at your door once in a lifetime. Back then, I had just started out in the industry and was working with a FinTech platform, however it was just a day-to-day hustle with no real skill building. I can probably also argue the case that there aren’t many skill development programs that prepare you enough for any role especially in Finance.
My first project was to support Sanjeev sir on his Steel Industry hypothesis which is very famously known in the industry and build up a dump deck for our sector coverage starting with the Power sector in India and exploring the trends in the industry. The fundamental value with which we operate under the ‘Guru Program’ is “If you spend roughly 10,000 hours on something, you’ll basically be a ‘GURU’ in the particular domain.” The journey is a long one but worth every single bit. The ‘Guru Program’ basically helps you in using facts and figures and preparing stories which the market is neglecting or has turned a blind eye to. Think about the recency bias. You tend to emphasize more on the recent events and tend to ignore the ‘facts’ of the past which made a business ‘a business’. Every now and then, these stories will sit right in front of us to be picked upon and that’s when we make a move for it. As in footballing terms, a striker’s instinct is a quality of being in the right place at the right time, the same holds true for us. Of course, it goes without saying that discipline and effort is something which would be required from your end along with the courage to not lose patience.

I think this graph will illustrate my point and my experience so far in a very simple way. I started covering sectors during my early days and I can easily say over the last 3 years I am still young in the program. However, I have seen phenomenal returns. Don’t get fooled by the graph, I warn you. The growth in my skillset has been further more in way lesser time in reality. This is merely a representation of how our thought process goes by.

Over the last 3 years or so, I have developed skills in analyzing data, nurturing a full thought process and basically finding the stories I earlier talked about. This comes on the back of having the right mentorship which I believe is one of the most under-rated inputs and is practically impossible to calculate. “The right mentor is way better than a degree.” Under Sanjeev Sir, the growth has been tremendous and I am putting it in a very mild way. Starting out as young lad in the industry, today I have gained phenomenal knowledge of sectors and some of my research work has even reached to various executives attached to the top-most investors in the country. However, I still believe there’s a long way to go as the journey of knowledge building has no end.

I work as an Analyst at one of the broking firms in India today and I can safely say that the role I am currently working on usually comes far too late in a finance professional’s career. I believe this program is – basically a way of learning for yourself and by yourself – under the guidance of the ‘GURU’ itself.

As a participant in the Dr Mentoring Program (DMP) four years ago, I can say with confidence that the program has been instrumental in shaping my approach towards managing operating cash flow and developing strategies for becoming a successful doctor entrepreneur.

Under the guidance of Mr. Sanjeev Pandiya, a seasoned ex-CFO of many listed companies like SRF, Jindal Steel, and Haulonix, the program provided us with invaluable insights into the financial aspects of running a medical practice. From understanding the basics of accounting and financial statements to learning about cash flow management, the program covered all the essential concepts required to successfully run a medical practice.

Moreover, Mr. Pandiya’s expertise and guidance helped us develop a strategic mindset to approach our profession as entrepreneurs. We were taught how to think outside the box and innovate to create unique offerings and build a brand that sets us apart from the competition.

Overall, I can confidently say that the DMP has had a profound impact on my professional growth as a doctor entrepreneur. The program’s emphasis on financial management and strategic thinking has equipped me with the tools to build a successful and sustainable medical practice. I would highly recommend this program to any doctor looking to enhance their entrepreneurial skills and take their practice to the next level.
