How much do you expect you’ll get as salary after finishing your engineering?
I have seen that the average salary is Rs.50,000/month for a fresher.
What if I told you that you can get a salary 10 times more than the above salary if you choose not to work for anyone but for yourself.
Let me introduce you to Harsh Agrawal, who quit his job to earn lakhs of rupees per month. The source of income for Harsh is his blog ShoutMeLoud.com. Yes, he is a blogger.
Last time I checked, Harsh was making around Rs. 11.5 lakhs/month from his blog. Check his income report here.
As of today, he is one of the most popular faces of the Indian blogging scene.
He writes about blogging and other tech subjects.
But, before you come to any kind of conclusions, let me tell you that he is not the only one who is earning that kind of money just from blogging. In fact, I should say that he is just the tip of the iceberg.
There are lots of them who are earning that kind of money. In fact, more than that.
You can check this blog to know more about him. But, for now, I think it would be pertinent to tell you that he quit his job too as his blog was bringing in far too much money than his 9-5 job. In case you have any doubts about what kind of job he was having, let me tell you that he is an engineer from the prestigious IIT.
The next blogger I want you to meet is Imran Uddin, the blogger at AllTechBuzz.net.
He too is an engineer, but instead of going to work any tech company, he chose to continue his career as a blogger.
Today, he is a well known figure in the online world. I have been see him for the last 3 three years & let me tell you that he never ceases to surprise me.
His hard work and determination has proved that nothing is impossible for the determined mind.
You can read more about him on his blog.
Those were the stories of just 3 engineers who chose the unconventional path of not working for any company but for themselves.
If you want to become like them, I urge you to start your own blog. If you want advice on how to start a blog, you can ask me. I shall be more than happy to tell you how to start your own blog. You can contact me here.
