I have heard somewhere that Listen to your heart, Mind will find a way to do that. I truly believe in that.

On April or June 2009, Harsh Agrawal was working for Convergys in Gurgaon but he wanted to quit that job. At that time, His salary in that company was $300/Month and opt in blogging.

And he also had a job offer from Accenture in his hand. He got confused on June last, 2009, whether he should work in Accenture or Opt in blogging. At that time, Blogging, Entrepreneurship was not popular as its today.

People in his circle advised him to work in Accenture and it was a big company too. BUT, He listened to himself. He was aware about future of Blogging and digital marketing.

After a lot of discussion in his circle, He decided to listen his inner voice and Opt in blogging as a career. Well, I have to say, It was the life changing decision for Harsh what bring him to what he is today.

So, always, Listen to yourself!

Lesson 3: Create multiple sources of income

So, the third lesson to learn from Harsh Agrawal is : Create Multiple sources of income.

Do you have only one income source? If yes, start creating more income sources. Why? For example: if you depend on only YouTube for income then might be somehow YouTube can be banned in your country, maybe your channel be hacked etc.

Now, What will you do? If you start creating another source of income after that, it will take time and in the meantime, you won’t earn, Right? So, You must create multiple sources of income like Harsh Agrawal.

He has many sources of income. For example: Sponsored content, Affiliate Marketing, YouTube channel, His own e-books and university etc. Harsh don’t depend on only one income source. He has created multiple income sources which totally make more than $70,000 every month for Harsh Agrawal.

Its amazing, Right? So, Start creating multiple sources of income as it will help you a lot. And do let me know what income sources you have in the comment box. Okay?

Lesson 5: Be Consistent

Do whatever you are doing by being consistent. Consistency is the key! If you have followed many bloggers then you might now this.

Lets take an example:

I am sure you have heard the story of The rabbit and tortoise. In that story, Rabbit runs fast but he took rest in the middle of the race. Did he won? No, Right? But, in the other side, Tortoise was running slowly but consistently and he won the race.

Now, I am sure you have got an idea what I am trying to say. If you see Harsh Agarwal’s blogs then He consistently was, consistently is creating contents at his blog.

Lesson 6: Be Transparent with your audience

If you are just being Fake guru by telling your audience wrong information, showing them fake earning reports just to make them your audience then you won’t succeed my friend.

Always be Transparent with your audience. This is a kind of success matra. The more you build transparency with your audience, they trust you more and they will also listen to you.

Lesson 7: Time is Money

“Time is money,” which indicates that if we use our time wisely, we can make money, however if we waste it, we will miss out on the potential to make money. 

A person’s fate is unpredictable, and we never know when a wonderful chance may present itself; it all depends on how we spend our time. 

A single moment may be the difference between reaching new heights in life and plummeting to new lows.

This is the best learning that I learned from my blogging inspiration, “Harsh Agrawal”. Always utilize your time. That’s it.

  2. Hi Pravakar,
    I absolutely admit the above mentioned points. Even, I did some mistakes in the initial days like not building lists and irregular publishing.
    One more thing that I like the most is looking for multiple sources of income. I made this mistake in starting by targeting only Adsense. Thankfully, got to know about Affiliate marketing.
    Thanks for sharing the article.
