“Since I wasn’t able to make proper decisions until I turned 18, my family had taken on the responsibility of making decisions for me. I don’t blame them; they only wanted what was best for me. But as I approached my late teens, I began to realize the importance of taking control of my own destiny, of understanding what truly mattered to me, and what stirred my passions.
I found myself uninterested in the bachelor’s degree I was pursuing. I expressed my desire to quit. However, their refusal led me down a path of academic failure, and eventually, I took advantage of the freedom that college offered. I had arrears to clear, but amidst the chaos and confusion, I discovered my love for various other extracurricular activities.
The road wasn’t easy. My college detained and suspended me, which sparked heated arguments with my parents. During the final semester, I persevered and cleared all my arrears. With renewed determination, I decided to prepare for the UPSC exams, even though my efforts ultimately proved in vain.
Left with no other option, I returned to my studies, enrolling in an HR course at Loyola again. However, my experiences had transformed me. Through my involvement in event management and organizing, I discovered my entrepreneurial spirit. I realized that I was a people person, someone who thrived on building connections and making things happen.
I considered launching a business in men’s grooming products, only to find that someone else had already succeeded in that same idea. I realized that I wasn’t cut out to be an employee; I was meant to be an entrepreneur. But before I could dive into the world of business, I knew I had to enrich myself, learn more, and prove my efficiency.
At the age of 23, I joined a firm as a content writer, but simply writing content didn’t satisfy my hunger for knowledge and success. I shifted my focus towards understanding how to generate business through my writing, honing my skills in sales. My workdays stretched from 9 to 5, and my evenings were dedicated to learning and self-improvement. My growth was rapid as I transformed my communication and presentation skills.
As I went deeper into the business world, I realized that skills alone wouldn’t pave the path to success; networking was equally essential. In 2020, I took the plunge and started my own brand, Brandocx. Initially, I was merely managing my expenses, but I persevered, investing my time in personal development and personal branding. I engaged with thousands of people, learning how to build authority among my leads.
My efforts eventually paid off, and I ventured into working with entrepreneurs, leading to the birth of my new brand, The GOAT Media. Within just a couple of months, I stand confident in my ability to bring in a revenue of 1 crore to my business. This is how I define growth for myself.
Every obstacle I faced in life served as a redirection, pushing me closer to my true calling. I learned to embrace these redirections.
Dreaming is free, so why can’t we all dream big and work tirelessly to create a better world for ourselves rather than merely existing in it?”
