Hey, This is Sudheer Kiran. I was born and raised in a middle class family from Narepalem, a small village in Andhra Pradesh, India.
As a 90’s kid from a middle class family, I used to play a lot with friends in the fields and ponds near my village. In my childhood, I wanted to become a doctor, and I used to find different plants to mix with water and prepare medicines. My Dad always used to laugh at my research and told me he couldn’t afford to help me become a doctor. But, for me this experimentation was always FUN and something new. After my 10th standard, I sought to join the 12th standard with BIPC specialization (Biology, Physics and Chemistry) to become a doctor. But, my parents pressured me to join the MPC (Maths, Physics and Chemistry), because they couldn’t afford a Doctor education.
So, I have done my 12th standard with MPC (Maths, Physics and Chemistry) specialization. My career goal has shifted from Doctor to Software Engineer. So, after my 12th standard I’ve joined in Engineering with Computer Science specialization.
I graduated with a degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Amrita Sai and the Institute of Technologies, Vijayawada. While completing my masters education MBA with a Marketing specialization, I founded my own business. Unfortunately, I couldn’t finish my program successfully, because I needed to take care of my business and my Digital Marketing Consultancy.
At the age of 20, while pursuing my degree in computer science and engineering, I began a blog “123techbooks.blogspot.com,” which later redirected to “ebookdust.com”, that aimed to assist engineering students with ebooks and offered useful tips on exams and interview preparation. I monetized this blog with AdSense, InfoLinks and HostGator affiliate banners and have since begun earning Rs.10,000 to Rs.15,000 a month. This has inspired to continue to learn about blogging and digital marketing.
Other blogs I’ve: TheTechnoTalk.com, HitechTrends.com, PrajaMedia.com, Gadgetalk.com
I began my career as a Software Engineer, but, because of my rising interest in digital marketing, this career didn’t last more than 3 months. I quit my job and began working in digital marketing with several companies.
