    ShopBack, The Ultimate Middle Man

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 28/07/2017

    » Did you know that there is a way to make money every time you spend it? Say hello to ShopBack, the future of e-commerce. ShopBack is a mobile phone app with a lengthy list of stores, vendors, and services offering the cheapest deals on everything from air travel to high heels and every transaction made through this app rewards shoppers with a decent percentage of their cash back. How is this possible? ShopBack operates solely off commission from these vendors and services. They take a majority of that commission and return it to the buyer. At the forefront of ShopBack is Kawin Prachanukul, a young and ambitious marketing guru who is the co-founder and country head of ShopBack Thailand. He was raised in Bangkok and has a degree in marketing from Thammasat Business School. He's been in e-commerce since leaving university, joining the operations team at Lazada, and then moving to Uber in 2014. Through his expertise and experience, he's made the leap to country head of this revolutionary start-up and was thrilled to give Guru the round-up on ShopBack.

    Abs, empathy and edge

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 02/12/2016

    » One hour with Chakrit Narula, a personal trainer at The Edge Boutique Gym ( and you feel like you've done your bit for the year. Despite his military approach to working out, what we like about Chakrit is his ability to relate with us normal humans who don't work out - or plan to - 24/7. We aren't robots and we're very much driven by realness and that "yeah I'll get round to it" mentality. We stumble. We fall. We fail. Chakrit's seen about every colour of the human condition when it comes to physical fitness, and this translates in his ability to motivate us. He wasn't always all abs and bones you know. Here's his story.

    Living the life

    Guru, Eric Surbano, Published on 17/03/2017

    » It's typical nowadays to hear about an up and coming young artist, and if you think Ananya Birla is just another one of those, then you are sorely mistaken. True, the 22-year-old from India released her single, Livin' the Life back in November. But that's not all there is to Ananya. At 17, she founded Svatantra Microfinance, all the while studying at the University of Oxford and playing gigs. She also co-founded two other companies. The artist/entrepreneur was recently in Bangkok working on the remix of her single which is now out on iTunes and Spotify. Guru sat down with her to ask her some questions, while simultaneously feeling guilty that we haven't done half as much with our lives.

    Walk on the wild side

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 09/09/2016

    » There are many ways to travel the world. Some people prefer to fly, others drive, while others ride boats, motorcycles or bicycles. But to physically walk around the world? That's not something many people can claim to do. Less than 20, to be specific, according to Meigo Mark, the 26-year-old Estonian traveller who arrived in Thailand late last month, two years and three months since he began his journey from his home country in northern Europe -- all on foot.
