Smita Das Jain
The Other Life
I am a certified Personal Empowerment Life Coach and certified Executive Coach, enabling people to get better at what they do and live more fulfilling lives. My speciality is in helping busy professionals unhappy in their jobs find time to transform their passions into pursuits so that they work when they want to, not because they have to. I am also a TEDx speaker and speak at various conferences and platforms.
Until March 2021, I was a Strategy and Management Consultant with 14+ years of experience with Fortune 500 companies like KPMG and JLL, most of them in leadership roles. I have advised Indian and Global clients in Business Strategy, Management Consulting, Financial Planning and Analysis, Market Insights, and Project Management. I have also had the privilege to mentor diverse teams and create new business lines during the course of my career.
I completed my MBA from the Indian Institute of Management, Indore, and also got an Executive Education Certificate from Columbia Business School.

I was twelve when I wrote my first story. It was published in my school magazine, and I became an overnight sensation for three days. I followed it up with an article. Then another. The series continued, and eventually, I became the Chief Editor of my school magazine.
Then I entered college life and since then my writing took a backseat to balance sheets and corporate strategies.
But when the paint on the wall always wears off, you always get a chance to repaint it in a different colour. I also did, when I took the plunge to transform my passion for writing into a pursuit to become an author.
The Writer's Life
I breathe life into words and create stories out of life. I write to express and to inform. My endeavour is to mesmerise, galvanise and hypnotise the readers through my writings.
Delhi Wire has mentioned me amongst The Top 50 Most Influential Authors of 2021. I have been featured in the Authority Magazine. I am the winner of the prestigious Bharat International Award for Literature—2023 and was the only Asian amongst the Top 20 flash fiction writers in the Spring 2022 contest on the Women On Writing (WOW!) platform- a prestigious US-based online magazine and community for women writers, editors, and publishers. My stories have been published on StoryMirror, Penmancy, Wordweavers, and Women's Web. I am a featured contributor in the Women's Web 2022 anthology Recipe for a Perfect Marriage, the Writefluence's 2022 anthologies Sepia and Out of My Box and the 2021 edition of the PoArtMo Anthology of The Auroras & Blossoms. My short fiction debut 'The Lost Identity' is available on Amazon. My short story collection, 'A Slice Of Life-Every Person Has A Story,' released worldwide on September 2021 to rave reviews, and was adjudged among India's top three self-published works of fiction by the Writefluence jury. My debut novel 'A Price to Love' by Readomania Publishing is available on Amazon and several leading bookstores in the country. I have also penned several non-fiction articles.
