Akshay was a troubled kid in high school going down the wrong path of drugs and alcohol. He saw two friends lose their lives to addiction and decided to change his path. Akshay needed a new way to test his limits.

Testing His Limits

Akshay set himself on a course to test his mental and physical limits.  He began rock climbing, skydiving, scuba diving and mountaineering. Nature had become his playground.

It was at this time that Akshay joined the Marines and served in Iraq. Again, he was testing his limits. It’s something he’s proud of but that’s a challenge he would but doesn’t want to do again.

“I drank myself to the point where I considered taking my own life” – Akshay Anavati on needing a new path

Akshay returned from active duty suffering from PTSD and struggling with alcohol.

Personal Development

It was time for a change. Akshay dove into personal development work and spirituality. This lead him to the writing of “Fearvana” and starting his own business.

“The greatest moments in life are the things that are scary and terrifying at first.” – Akshay Nanavati

Akshay learned to embrace his fears and he wants to share his concept of “Fearvana” with as many people as he can.
