The first time I posted a blog was 4th November, 2010. I wrote ‘How to smartly choose a career’ because it was one of the questions I was asked, very frequently. No one noticed my first blogpost. With a hurt ego & in desperation, I had to finally call up a few friends & relatives and requested them to please for heaven’s sake have a look. Today after posting hundreds of Blogposts (with some of them even having 2.5 million plus unique views)- I so want to share my secret of ‘ How to start a Blog’ & ‘How to make it very popular’.

My believers had to try and motivate me. Some people did surprise me with their originality & creativity in their point of views. Few of them became friends & they manage to inspire me even today during conversations. My work as a Motivational Speaker for Corporate Events & Youth in the last 18+ yrs has had the influence of some of the most brilliant, top Motivational Speakers in the world. Their content, their stories, and their style of communication – it all just makes me a fanboy!

I have always been an ardent fan of the word ‘courage’. There is something about being brave that makes you feel ‘wow’. Doesn’t it? A confession:- I  am a fallible human first & then a motivational speaker. I go on stage every now and then talking of courage to an auditorium full of people.
