Today’s post is all about a story – the story of Rahul Mukherjee. Rahul was fresh out of college with a B.Com degree. The only problem was – so were thousands others in Kolkata.
Now, the only job offers he got had a salary of about 10k a month. That’s just sad. What’s sadder is the fact that Rahul was actually a star student.
It was around this time that he became one of the employees at a digital marketing agency as a content writer.
The pay wasn’t much better than his current offers.
But Rahul accepted that offer anyway.
The agency that hired him quickly realized that Rahul was a talented writer and his skill was being wasted on writing blogs for small-time clients who didn’t really care about his content either way. So, they shifted him to copywriting right away.
Within 3 months, he was writing copy for some of their biggest clients. Quirky and intriguing, his skill in copywriting was so great that he quickly became a Senior Copywriter.
But that was not where his story ended. In fact, that’s where his story started.
To date, Rahul lives his life by a simple, but powerful philosophy – “Stronger today than I was yesterday.”
