The Founder of Limbic Learning Sidhartha Kumar Mathur Is Helping Youth Navigate the Education Landscape

In addition to his education facility, Sid is also a certified astrological counselor and practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine. Having attended Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University for a few years, Sid works one-on-one with individuals to provide various whole-body healing sessions. He is currently working on a book about evolutionary astrology and archetypes. What products or services do you provide? Limbic Learning is an education facility focused on providing tools and resources for those with learning disabilities. As active members of our local community, we take pride in helping young individuals navigate the education landscape. How did you enter the business landscape? To be honest, I’ve always found myself to be an entrepreneur. Moreover, I have always had a passion for applying my background in healthcare to help people and upgrade our outdated education system. I saw a wide range of opportunities to cultivate positive change based on my own experience in these industries, prompting my pathway within this business landscape. What makes your company stand out? Our company is very people-focused. Many other businesses outsource technologies, while our organization tries to be much more directly personable. This is key when it comes to implementation, for example. Our main goal is to make a positive impact in the community while advocating for long-term change to the education system. How has your company grown since its inception? There have been a lot of new additions in roles as we have found newer ways to serve our clients since the organization’s inception. I attribute this to the fact that we are creative to the core. It’s one of our guiding values, after all. In addition, we are always seeking new experiences. I firmly believe that it is vital to force yourself into situations outside of your comfort zone and then creatively adapt from that place, which forces your brain to make new neural networks and allows the whole innovation process to unfold. I am also always seeking new ways to make the learning experience as fun and exciting as possible. What is the most rewarding aspect of your job? That I am in the business of actually helping and healing people. Whether it be my personal clients or the people my organization aims to serve, the fact that I am directly having a positive impact on other human beings is frankly what is most rewarding to me. What are your company values? Passion, Creativity, and Open-Communication. Everything we do is driven by a desire to help others succeed. We also offer solutions that are unique because we truly value creativity. Additionally, we value the input of everyone on our team. We want everyone to feel appreciated and to know that they add value to our program. Any finance or cash-flow tips for new businesses starting out? Cash-flow management is vital to long-term growth. My suggestion is to hire a professional who can really monitor how much money is coming in and how much is being spent on business needs. My second piece of advice would be to implement an emergency cash reserve. While many businesses are confident in their first month's profit, it is important to have some financial flexibility. Any thoughts on the future of your company and your dreams? I have always taken inspiration from individuals such as Elon Musk. I think how he is revolutionizing the technology sector is incredibly inspiring. I want to continue to challenge the status quo while helping others. I think we will only continue to expand.
