HI, I'M NESHA PAI.
I am a CPA, business owner, author, and keynote speaker with a passion for numbers and a heart for courageous business.
At my core, I am an encourager of women— I guide women into
their power, personally and professionally. Through my own
lived experiences and resources, I have helped many women
(and a few men!) rediscover their passion and face the pivotal
changes necessary to finally live the life of their dreams.
My clients and audiences love the fresh take I have on business
and life—I am an open book! I don’t hold anything back when it
comes to my journey or my struggle. I am proof there is
substantial power in not allowing challenges to distract from
As I continue to create resources and support systems for women, I realize just how powerful they would have been at
the start of my journey, but I didn’t let that hold me back. And
now I’ve made it so you don’t have to either.
This is your pivotal moment. Let’s take it together.
As a first generation Indian American raised in the south, Nesha has had her fair share of facing and
overcoming obstacles - dealing with racism and sexism throughout her life. She has endured mental
health struggles and a personal religious identity crisis all while navigating marriage, divorce, and single motherhood. But she credits these challenges as the catalyst for her success. Nesha opened her accounting firm, Pai CPA, in 2011 and made it her mission to empower women through hiring. Due to its
unique virtual office structure (remember, this was 2011), she was able to give employment
opportunities to mostly stay-at-home moms. She has great pride in owning a business that supported
women and empowered business owners in their finances.
Still, as her business grew, Nesha felt her purpose to help women grow was unfulfilled. Nesha isn't just
an example of the American dream, she is the embodiment of it. And she does it with style, grace and
Intrinsically empowered by her own story and inspired by the stories of others, Nesha has continued to
expand her expertise and reach, leading to where she is today: An impactful leader and keynote speaker
who guides others to step into their power, regain their trust in the process, and live the life of their
dreams. Nesha is truly a testament to how her faith, forgiveness, and resilience transformed her
seemingly insurmountable obstacles into priceless opportunity and power.
