The Beginning

Starting from a middle-class family from Bihar. I completed my basic education from Jamshedpur and then took admission in Muzaffarpur which is also my hometown.

Like every Bihari male child, my family had a dream to make me an engineer so that I can make my life better. So I took admission at ITER Bhubaneshwar and studied Mechanical Engineering, even I am in the stream my heart was always in computers and the Internet as I see this as a magical thing in my life.

The Job Scene

I was learning to code in Java in Bangalore and at that time I got an opportunity to work as an SEO Trainee in a Chennai based company, I worked for 3 months in Chennai and 3 months at Coimbatore, both were amazing place filled with kind-hearted people.

After This I moved to Kolkata at Microsec Technologies and involve in a project called Foreseegame, Where I asked my boss to make my own team and do way better than what a world-class agency is doing for us, my Boss allowed it and we did 1.5 million OTP verified registered users in 2014 in next 1.5 years, the agency did 48000 Installs in 1 year earlier.

After this huge success the company had trust in me and let me create another team for a venture called Sastasundar and I build a team there as well and scale sales up to 3000 SKU a year with the help of the team, Sastasundar is right now valued more than INR 500 CR company, and we did everything organically as we were not allowed to run ads.

but lately, I start feeling that my capability is limited and I want to move to the place where I can take more risks in life and more importantly find people whom I can learn, so I joined a Startup Called Fellahomes. In 10 months of my career our team scaled it to 10X but unfortunately, this startup is merged with another startup called as Investor wanted to do so later I consult that startup too for a brief period of time.

I left job to find my calling and start consulting brands, till now if I calculate the amount these brands raised whom I consult or worked for it will come close to INR 1000 Crore, maybe even more.

The 1st Generation Entrepreneur

I was wondering for my next phase of life and my Co-Founder Abhsihek Gupta came up with the plan of opening something which will help people a lot and at the same time we can do business out of it, I liked the idea and jump in, UppSkill was born on teachers day (2017).

We researched for 6 months in this Industry and came up a solution which will not lie to students as we believe that we as educators are building a foundation of our country and lying to the student is lying to our glorious nation, we did not want to do that and hence the vision of UppSkill was born which help us to shape our culture.

I started as a trainer and designed UppSkill digital marketing masterclass along with my fellow trainer Sourav Das. We did not copy any course but created everything from scratch, we already saw that Institutes are teaching outdated course and they also copy each other but the biggest problem was that non of them are talking about marketing psychology.

We include brain science, social psychology and behavioural economics in our course and the output was magical, till date we are most probably the only Institute in India which teaches community building, branding, marketing storytelling and neuromarketing.

We started this business from zero investment as per money go but we invest every drop of passion we had in it, we invest every drop of hard work we had in it and made this later we invested what we had earned from running the classes.

In my family I am the first generation entrepreneur so I had to learn a lot, I had to break a lot of barriers in my mindset. I am still breaking the cages in my mind one by one every day.

The Transformation To a Teacher & Mentor

Further in my career when I spend around 1000 hours teaching in live class and taught 100s of young minds I realise that they need a helping hand more than what I was offering, from then I start calling myself as a teacher and my students started calling me their mentor with whom they can talk anything they want.

This is the period when IIM Kashipur also appointed me as a Key Mentor

 

I am now waiting for the next phase on my life

When Everything Fails, UppSkill Yourself.

S.E.A

This is one of the model I teach my students to learn anything

S.E.A

This is one of the model I teach my students to learn anything

Strategies – Make strategy around what and how you are going to learn, for example divide a chapter in small parts and have a model of consuming content and then practicing.

Execute – Without this every knowledge is waste, execution is the real thing which will push you toward to become a better.

Analyse – Failure comes with learning and success comes with validation, both of them are important in our life

Love

If you love people they will return favor in any form, most of the time it’s love.

Love and gratitude is very important in life, start practicing them. Love your friend without any expectation and they will do the same. Human bond is very important in life. Be the light of their life, be the healer of their pain, because this is what humans should do.
