Lets go back to the timeline, it was around 2004, during my engineering days (special mention – took a break, oh yes took a drop, after two years to support the family), got a chance to work for a friend of mine who introduced me to the world of digital. Knew HTML back then, so got a couple of projects from him to make. Post then, wanted to move to the field of selling online. Yes, I was selling books online on ebay before Flipkart even started in India. Tried pitching to a couple of people, but who would want to fund a student, who has taken a break and who may go back to studies again. But the experience was brilliant and which lay foundations to a lot of things that is there today.
Back then, online stores used to be quite an expensive affair, so had to learn some aspects of the online store building process and then never looked back. Was able to work with more than 100 clients across this 10+ years of experience. Be it the big names in the advertisement industry enabling tech solutions for their campaign ideas to the large MNC firms solving small issues with their website or campaign related projects. Thus been able to amass a good amount of knowledge in the digital space.
During this journey met some brilliant minds, whom I was able to connect, interact and learn from. Its been a great learning curve till now. Oh yes, some food for thought – the learning does not stop. The journey is not yet over and there is a lot more to learn.
