We often think of life as having a series of sacrifices. If we have a successful business, we can’t have a healthy relationship. Boom Shikha says we are actually much more capable to live a level ten life. She shares how she arrived at this realization as well as her journey to spreading and helping people understand their own potential. She shares how meditation has helped her while asking us to follow The Miracle Morning formula, focusing more on what you want to do in your life and watching the rest naturally follow suit.

Achieving A Level Ten Life with Boom Shikha
I have a special guest with me. This is going to be an exciting interview. Boom Shikha is a serial entrepreneur, wanderluster, online business owner, yogi, author, and avid meditator. She’s interested in helping you find your life purpose and get to your level ten life. She also has an awesome free private Facebook group that I suggest you take a look at. You’ll want to check her out at WhatsYourFreedomNumber.com. Fellow Heartrepreneurs, I know this will resonate because we’re all about life purpose. We’re all about having the juiciest life ever. Shikha, welcome.
Thank you so much for having me on the show. I appreciate it.
What is it that you do to help people get to their life purpose and level ten life? What exactly do you do?
The funny thing is that I begin with letting people know that you can have a level ten life. A lot of people, unfortunately, have this block that if think we are doing well at a business, then we need to do poorly in our relationships. We have this random block. I don’t know where it comes from. My first step is always to let them know it is possible for everyone on this planet to live a level ten life, no matter who you are, and helping them remove that block. That’s my first step.Focus on figuring out how you can use your skills to make the world better and the money will follow. Click To Tweet
Everyone who’s a Heartrepreneur is here to make sure they do. We want the magic ] juice out of life. How long have you been doing it? How’d you get into it? Take us through your background.
I started doing this as an informal thing with my friends and family. Letting them know all the books that I’ve read. I wanted to share my information. Officially, I quit my job in March 2016 and that’s when I started TheMillionaireHippie.com, my Millionaire Hippie brands and the Facebook group. I decided to do this because of the fact that I removed this block specifically through meditation, which is a practice I recommend for all readers. I started meditating avidly, consistently, and that changed what I was thinking and how I thought. I wanted to share that experience with other individuals around me. That’s what started this whole journey.
I always love it when someone steps away from what I call being a wage slave into the entrepreneurial joys that we have in life. Knowing what you know now if you could start over, what would your day look like?
If I did want to start over, I would have a stronger morning routine. I have a good routine in my mornings, but I get distracted because there’s much stuff going on in my life and the world. I definitely recommend for anyone who’s starting over is to have a strong, consistent morning routine. Have it include all the different steps, meditation, journaling, visualization, affirmations, and exercises. Basically, following the formula of The Miracle Morning.
I do that every day.
I love the fact that you’re consistent with it because it’s hard.
It took me about six months to be practicing all parts of it. Initially, a client sent me the book and said this changed her life. I said, “I’ll try it.” I started incorporating a little bit more. I had the whole thing down. I’ve been avidly doing it daily. I want everybody to pick up that book, The Miracle Morning. It’s an amazing book.
If you are a little bit younger and you are coming out of high school or university, I ask you to focus a little bit less on getting a degree and more on what you want to do with your life. I recommend if you are interested or if you have the time, take a couple of years off. Don’t worry about it so much by getting a Bachelor of Science, a master’s or whatever degree that you might be thinking of. Focus on figuring out how I can use my skills to make this a better world and the money will follow. I know everyone always says this, but it is the way it is.
What do you say to someone who are in a job, who have a desire to amp up their lives and have a more full and juicy life and they feel like, “You don’t know my life circumstance. I can’t?”
I hear that all the time from a lot of individuals around me. They always tell me, “You have an amazing life, but I could never do that. I can never move to Chiang Mai. I could never quit my job. I could never start my business. I could never buy a house, whatever it might be.” I always go back to the fact that I always believed myself that I wouldn’t be able to do all of these things. I used role models. I use these people to make me believe in myself. Usually what I do is when I’m starting something new, for example, I started doing improv. What I did was that I looked for individuals who are doing it who are similar to me. When I saw these individuals who were like me, doing what I wanted to do, it made me believe a little bit more that it was possible for me to do it. I always ask people to find role models or individuals in your circle who are already doing what you want to do. Follow them and ask them questions. Get rid of all the different fears and blocks that you had inside of you. As soon as you do that, as soon as you get out in the open, instantaneously you’ll be freer because of it.
It’s cool that you talked about improv. I did an improv seminar where I taught people improv so that they could be better networkers. Improv loosens us up and it allows so much more. I also resonated with just the word ‘possibility’. Hearing that word reminds people we all have possibility and potential. One of the great things that I heard you say was find role models. Find people that are doing it, who have felt the fear and done it anyway. Anybody I’ve ever met at any age that has started out as an entrepreneur knows that there are some risks. They felt the fear and they did it. Find someone else to lead you through that. When you say level ten life, what’s level ten life mean to you?
To me, it means a limitless lifestyle where everything is at a point where you’d want it to be. My relationships with my mother, my parents, and my family are at level ten. My partner is in a relationship at a level ten with me. My career or my businesses are at a level ten. My health, my spirituality, finances, everything that I can imagine is at that level ten. That level ten will look different for different people. My spirituality is very much based on meditation and being connected to my body and mind. For another individual, it might mean going to church every day or going every week, whatever it might be. Level ten will look different for different people. It doesn’t mean that we compare or look at other individuals to build our level ten life. You figure out what does it look like for you. What does it look like in terms of every single aspect of it? Write it out and then make it happen. That’s what a level ten means for me.
What was the reason you decided to start this private Facebook group?
You know how it is when you have an itch and you want to scratch it, but you can’t find anything in order to do it? I was looking around. There were a lot of Facebook groups about making money. A lot of other Facebook groups about being a yogi or meditator. There was nothing connecting the two. I found that there are many things where people either want to make a lot of money or they want to be spiritual. For some reason, there’s this disconnect where we imagine that if you’re spiritual, you can’t be rich. We can’t be millionaires. That’s wrong because I believe that the more spiritual you get, the easier it becomes for you to manifest more money. I created The Millionaire Hippie brand to say that it’s not mutually exclusive. You can be spiritual and abundant at the same time.The more spiritual you get, the easier it becomes for you to manifest more money. Click To Tweet
That is the backbone of everything I believe. I know when I worked in corporate America and made a great living, but I wasn’t connected to my spiritual self. When I started my coaching and consulting business, I felt that the two of them got aligned. It’s why I’ve been able to make a great living while having a great life. How can people get in touch with you?
You’ve already been so kind and recommended the Facebook group. That’s one of the best ways to get ahold of me, WhatsYourFreedomNumber.com. If you go on there, you will be directed to the Facebook group. My website is TheMillionaireHippie.com. If you want to check out some of the blog posts I have on there, I’d appreciate it. In general, though, I’m grateful to have this conversation with you to have this chance to give some of my learnings to you guys. I am so grateful. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much for joining me. I recommend that people go check you out. Boom Shikha is amazing. This was an amazing start of a conversation. I will have to connect with you again in the future and have you back. Thank you so much for being here.
I would love to be back. Thank you so much.
Fellow Heartrepreneurs, keep expanding your heart-to-heart connections.

About Boom Shikha
My name is Boom Shikha and I welcome you to my little piece of the world. Here are a few things I would love to tell you about myself:
- Am a writer at heart, and I have been writing since I was 12.
- Quit my job in March of 2016, to start my own online business, and I have been at it ever since.
- Moved to Chiang Mai for six months in October 2016, and I learned a lot from the Digital Nomad crowds there.
- Am a minimalist, yogi, traveller, and dancer.
- Do workshops on creativity and sexuality and other related topics. I have created courses on similar topics as well on Udemy.
I have many diverse interests, but mostly I want to help you become the best that you can. I remember when I first started on this journey to be more financial independent, and time independent, there was no one to help me out. I became a digital nomad, mostly by fluke, and accident. I’m so grateful for everyone who helped me on the way. I want to be that person for you. If you are interested in living a life of fulfillment, self-actualization, freedom, and abundance, but you are unsure how to do it, I’m here to help you out.
I am only interested in helping out individuals who are willing to work hard, and be persistent with their goals. I want to work with the go-getters, and the doers, not the talkers. If you are just going to talk about doing the work, but not do any work, then I am afraid we have nothing to say to each other. Harsh? Perhaps, but it’s also the truth.
If you can’t handle the truth… then you know what to do as well.
I can’t possibly include everything I want on this page, so please message me on Facebook or on here, or at boomshikha at themillionairehippie.designextreme.com dot com and we can get the conversation rolling further.
