My Biography


“Success has no standard definition; you have to write your own.”

Hello, my name is Avinash Sahoo, a humanity-cantered Author and Youth Advocate, quickly earning the reputation as an ambassador of change and passion promoter across India. 

But before awakening to my purpose, I faced and eventually overcame untold hardship. From growing up in a mud hut, to watching my mother starve herself just so her three children didn’t go to sleep hungry, my heart felt broken at an early age. The people in our small village mocked us left and right, but despite all the negativity, there was a light that burned fiercely within me—and that light was the thirst for knowledge. 

Eventually, I wound up with a career in the banking and finance industry, which changed my living situation drastically. However, there was an emptiness still growing inside of me. My lifestyle may had transformed, but my soul was as stagnant as ever. Despite this newfound success that I constantly dreamed about as a little boy, I battled with both depression and anxiety.

After my mother’s untimely death, I was propelled deeper into the darkness but also onto a path of self-discovery—and it is in that rediscovery that I realized the importance of living mindfully and purposefully. Ultimately, I awakened to my truest, innermost self and to my calling: to empower the youth to harness their infinite potential, chase after their dreams, and live the fulfilling life they have always dreamed of. Put simply, I am on a mission to create as many success stories as possible. 

Upon interviewing hundreds of ambitious youth who removed any roadblocks that stood in their way, I have unlocked the secret to paving the path to success by helping nurture one’s passion and transform it into a lifelong vocation. Most of these inspiring, real-life stories are featured on my YouTube channel, PassionWithAvinash and in my book, “What If You Love X and Marry Y?” The idea behind this self-help guide stems in my core belief that choosing a career is nothing less than choosing a life partner.

“Career without passion is curry without salt.”



My Belief


I truly believe that every person can tap into their wildest hopes and aspirations and live the dreams they’ve always wanted. For me “Humanity” is the only but “Universal Religion” that everyone should follow.
