i'm a glitter explorer!
how i got my glitter...
Hello! My name is Romita Bulchandani, and I'm a Glitter Explorer! Several years ago, I left my corporate dream job to live my dream life. You might be thinking, did I just read that right? You did!
For 15 years, I served as a leader in Fortune 200 companies like The Walt Disney Company, Marriott International, and DaVita. Learn more about my career here.
On paper, I was successful, driven, and a top performer. I had spent my entire life doing "the right things," i.e., going to college, landing a job, and climbing the corporate ladder, only to wake up one day and realize I wasn’t happy. I found myself exhausted, drained, and overworked. I felt like a zebra lost in a field of horses. Not only that, shame and guilt tugged at my soul.
Acknowledging I had a bigger purpose in life, I decided to quit my "dream" job and listen to my heart. It took me to the airport. Traveling made me realize there are so many zebras out there just like me, experiencing burnout, and looking for an escape.
After spending six months redesigning my own life, I knew I wanted to help others conquer burnout and develop tools to reveal their purpose. Driven by my real-world experiences and passion for living authentically, glitter for the soul ® was born.
Now, I am living my purpose through transformational coaching, while leaving glitter trails along the way.

As women, we grow up hearing statements like, “You can be whoever you want to be.” “You can do anything you want to do.” “Nothing is off the table anymore.” “It’s okay to be you!” But do you want to know the most common complaint or frustration I hear from my clients?
“I just don’t feel like I’m worthy.”
“I’m not worthy of attention, love, or even concern.”
“I’m not worthy of your time - or even my own.”
For starters, worthy for what exactly? What is it about our society or the world we grow up in that gives women the impression that we’re not good enough for the things we want out of life?
Secondly, it’s important to listen to the unspoken sentiment behind the phrase “I’m not worthy.” It’s the voice telling us that self-care, mental health, and energy sustenance are OPTIONAL. Would you tell anyone else - even someone you don’t particularly care for - that they shouldn’t make their health a priority? So why would you say it to yourself??
The truth of the matter is that we live in a world that tells us we’re supposed to be unicorns:
Perfect in every way, without even trying
Needless and selfless, putting everyone and everything before ourselves
Magical in our ability to solve any problem or be anyone that someone needs us to be
But you know what? Unicorns aren’t real, and neither is this glorified idea of a “perfect” woman. Now that doesn’t mean that you’re not perfect. You’re perfect just the way you are - regardless of your strengths, weaknesses, preferences, likes, dislikes, complexion, size, personality, and skillset.
Say it with me: I’m perfect as I am!
You might have said, but did you BELIEVE it?
Okay, let’s go at this from a different perspective then. Rather than maintaining this impossible “unicorn” standard, let’s take a look at zebras. Zebras are naturally occurring mammals that still exist to this day, and they have a lot of incredible traits that we, as women, should pay special attention to.
Zebras prefer being in a group - even if that group doesn’t include direct family members
They are believed to be one of the only mammals to see color (with the exception of orange)
They are perfectly equipped to thrive in their environment, from the plains to the mountains
A group of Zebras is called a Dazzle (which is just FANTASTIC!)
Native American culture refers to the zebra as a symbol of balance and sureness of path
How does this relate to women?
Women are powerful. We’re capable of tackling any task, no matter how large or how small, especially when it comes to the benefit of someone we love. We are integrity-driven, strongly desiring to leave the world a better place than we found it. We thrive in group settings, building others up and supporting our community in times of need. And we frequently do it all with no expectation of reciprocity.
Do you have any idea what would happen if more women embraced their inner Zebras and came together in a community to improve the world INSTEAD OF chasing after this impossible media-fabricated Unicorn Standard? We would have the energy, the mental capacity, and the motivation to overcome any obstacle that got in our way - because our personal tanks would be FULL!
My goal, as your coach, is to help you identify the areas in which you’re holding yourself this unrealistic world-view. When we compare ourselves to a complete fantasy, it’s impossible to ever measure up. Throughout our time together, I’ll help expose your inner Zebra, build self-respect and self-love, and teach you how to set your authentic self loose on the world around you.
If this brought a smile to your face - if you subconsciously found yourself nodding along and thinking, “Yes, that makes sense!” then you’re ready to take that first big step in investing in yourself, putting yourself first for once, and filling up your tank so that you can continue to THRIVE. All that’s left is to click the button below to Get Started! If you’ve made it this far, I guarantee we’re going to hit it off.
I can’t wait to meet you and your inner Zebra!!
