He feels that safety is the biggest aspect for any person, much like how we see how strong the roof of our house is, he thought he would also work towards ensuring safety for those in the society and do the right thing with suitable advice. It started with his understanding of the need of trust, and that drove him into taking this up as a full-time career. Recalling his early days, he says, ''I used to walk over 3-4kms every day to go to office and while the initial phase was very hard, it was when I gradually saw things turning positive that I earned internal strength and the confidence to achieve what I set out for.'' Despite being shunned from companies and places, he took it upon himself as a life-long learning to make something of him and that served as an inspiration for him. Much like the present day business, it was through connections and references that he started his journey and acquired the clients. In fact, he first put up a canopy at 'rath yatra' in Varanasi, and fills out forms. It was the data base that started from there that he built up by adding more people to the same. Currently, he offers mutual funds only, and has assets worth 90 cr under his advisory. An advice that he always gives all his clients is to get a term plan and Mediclaim as these two are necessities in current day. He asserts his biggest learning to offering clarity and visibility, which in turn, enables him to keep up with the trust of the investors. He says, ''You keep your customers happy and they will keep you in business. Excellence is my initial, I do what I can beyond that as well. We can't think that our job is over once they have invested, that is when the responsibilities increase.'' He also recalls how he was once told by a client that his money is handled better than he would of his own money, and thereby, ensure, that he upholds the responsibility he has been given. The long term investments that are made by the investors, he ensures that the clients are ready to see their investments turn negative in equity, and given the nature of the market, it will keep going up and down, and that is what has enabled him to ensure that investment discipline is followed during these volatile times.

Through his journey spanning years, what started from New India Insurance, later culminated into something big as his will to do something on his own lead him to become a financial advisor. With the sheer goal to enable his clients to achieve their dreams instead of completing targets at a 9 to 5 job, he has made it big, on his own. He believes, ''Financial Distribution Business is beyond sales, it is about managing emotions, aspirations & mindset. You should help others achieve the goals of the other person.'' During his journey, he had faced all kinds of people, but there was nothing that deterred him from doing what was right by him, and that is what he has done. He is a firm believer in adding value to himself so as to bring value to the client.

With learning from his father to respect the money he has received, and that is something he has carried forward. He says, ''Nothing is a problem in life, it is always a challenge. The only difference is that when you work on a problem, you lose energy and it takes time, but if you consider it as a challenge, it works out sooner.'’ Acquiring clients has primarily involved working with cold calls, along with those who come via common contacts. However, Praveen feels that the contacts that one builds on their own give more value to you as a Family & Volatility Coach than the rest. He has quite a few anecdotes to share and that is when he reveals, ''Something that always irked me was how people gave importance to those who have money, someone who walks in in a big luxury car than someone with a relatively smaller car, but eventually, people began to understand things clearer.

That has been his journey of working hard in the beginning and eventually converting it to smart work. He attributes his biggest learning as a Financial Distributor is his belief of how investors have been sent to do good for people.
