How did the idea of becoming a Digital marketer come about

My exposure in the US and UK made me realize how digital marketing is not being done in the correct way in India. It’s a lot more data centric and research driven, and hence the effectiveness is great. I saw this as a challenge and started out.

Could you please tell us what is Digital marketing

Digital marketing is a wide term that includes multiple marketing channels and methods that can be used for promoting products or services on the Internet.

What do you like most about your work

The fact that I get to work on a diverse set of businesses and create a tangible impact on our economy.

What is your definition of Success

It’s a state of mind where you can be content with your own self.

What are the Top 2 regular practices that have helped you

Introspection, and Reading

What keeps you motivated

My country is still thought of as just an outsourcing partner for digital-related services.

Who has been your biggest support in this journey

My sister has been a constant support system in my journey from being a ‘bathroom entrepreneur’ to a serial entrepreneur.

What is the biggest misconception you think people have about you

That my father had any role in helping me in starting out or any of my ventures.

When you are not working, what are you doing

Reading, or Netflix.

What would you have been if not what you are doing currently

Public policy maker or an economist

What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur

  • An insight-driven sense of observation
  • Ability to respect and value people
  • Adaptive to changes

Any regrets as of now? And if yes would you like to share

Not being able to spend as much time with loved ones as I wished to.

If you had to give a advice to your younger self when you were starting out, what would it be?

I would tell my 16-year-old self to not make plans in life, to not worry about where I would be when I am 20 and all of that. I would tell her to chill and go out there. It will all fall in place, heaven’s got a plan for you.
