After completing his MBA, Ketan started out his career by working in the FMCG sector. Then he switched to the IT sector and worked in the product management and account management domains. About six years ago he took to being a full-time traveler and writer. He travels to places and writes about his travel journeys.

Ketan says that he would not want to change anything from his past even if he could go back in time via a Time Machine. However, he says that he would want to live every moment of his life to its fullest.

To people who want to follow their passions, Ketan advises them to first be financially stable and have some backup plan before pursuing their passions full-time. He also advises them to take calculated risks in life.

According to Ketan, leadership is about being honest and considerate to your team members whilst at the same time maintaining defined boundaries between you and your team so that they can look up to you as a leader.
