I am Nesha Pai

I am a speaker, business owner, podcast host and author who has been lucky enough to see that hard work and lots of hope, can build a beautiful life. Whether I am on the mic, on the  airwaves, crunching some numbers, or conducting a workshop, my aim is to help someone else see the same possibility in their own future. 


Nesha Pai

Nesha Pai is the founder of Pai CPA, PLLC in Charlotte, NC. and  she published her book “Overcoming Ordinary Obstacles”, which won the award in the Multicultural Non-Fiction category by the American Book Fest.  She has been a Charlotte resident since 1993, and recently was named as one of the Top 50 Most Influential Women of 2020 in the Mecklenburg Times. 




Opportunities Arise When You Lean on Your Faith and Learn to Forgive

I recognize the majority of reviews are from females, but as a male, I found so many lessons in this book. The greatest lesson was how faith and forgiveness can remove obstacles and take you further in life. I could not put the book down until I read it all!


Nesha captures so eloquently a very vulnerable and honest journey of a first gen American and the identity struggles that come with it. It is a beautifully written book that is easy to understand and gives the reader contemplative questions to consider about his/her own life. 

Fruitful Read

Pai has an "extraordinary" outlay on how our life experiences can push us down to only lift us up and never accept ordinary.

Relatable and implores you to self-reflect

Anytime an author inspires us to self-reflect in a constructive way becomes words worth reading! I commend the author for putting her vulnerability out front to implore us to do the same. We don't grow without truthful reflection and we don't forge forward by simmering in the past. It's obvious Nesha has used her experiences productively and positively and I will hold onto that key takeaway. You are what you believe and I believe Nesha has an extraordinary life in front of her., as she will keep inviting ordinary obstacles into her life in order to sustain the growth she continually seeks.

Level Up in Life

...The book often reads like a long, newsy letter from a friend you haven’t seen in many years; that is, easily accessible and conversational in its tone. I don’t think she’s trying to become some kind of self-help guru. I see the book as an act of service, where she shares her experience, strength and hope with the world. Undoubtedly it will spark inspiration, creativity, self-confidence or recognition in those who read it.
