Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Becoming a Business Consultant was never on Cards. I started as a working as a Digital Marketer providing solutions to clients. Later I realized I was good at understanding clients requirement and providing them a solution. Simultaneously I was doing Affiliate Marketing, Mystery Audits and many other things for Part Time Income. This is how gave birth to my upcoming portal BNB E-Shiksha, An Online Education Portal which will teach 12 unique ways to earn part time income.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your company?
The most interesting story was when I realized I thought I knew it all but in reality I was wrong Almost lost everything I worked hard for… But then I decided to invest time in learning and keep myself updated with what’s happening around me, this has really helping me EXPAND my businesses to the next level I realized I needed to get known and the only way was to invest into the right people, the right programs, the right medium, and of course taking no for an answer… After doing all of this I made the decision to 10X everything, business, life, health to win big with cash flows of money
Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?
The funniest mistake I guess was always jumping to conclusion about anything without understanding root cause of it. Later with time I realized that I should first understand the requirement or situation before working on the solution.
What do you think makes your company stand out? Can you share a story?
As I said I was always working on new ways to earn part time income. I made a list of available part time income options and started doing it myself. After 3 years I was able to list down 12 ways to earn part time income. At BNB BAZAAR we started local workshops but it was getting difficult to masses so finally we came with BNB E-Shiksha, Online Education Portal.
And at TECHMR, We provide out of the box solution to our Clients who wants to get their business onine.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
First invest time in learning. You should dedicate at least 30 minutes in a day to upgrade yourself because the online industry is constantly changing. Also be ready with a solution for your clients.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My family, friends and my clients all of them have an equal contribution in my life.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
I am currently reading a book called Life’s Amazing Secrets by Gaur Gopal Prabhu and on every page I can read something which needs to be implemented in real life. But My Favorite Life Lesson Quote is “No Risk, No Reward”. Be it personal life or professional you should always take risks in trusting people, investing time.
What are your “5 things I wish someone told me before I started my company” and why. Please share a story or example for each.
1. Always team up with people that are smarter than you are.
2. Be meticulous about creating and protecting your brand.
3. Don’t lose sight of the competition; you can always learn from their mistakes and their accomplishments.
4. Don’t focus on only selling. Focus on providing value.
5. Find clients/customers that make you passionate about your work.
You are a person of great influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂
I spend time in Helping people in need. I believe in karma and giving back to those that are in need. I was blessed with a healthy brain and body and not everyone has this blessing.
