Over the last two years, I have had the pleasure to work with and coach hundreds of individuals from all over the world, but I have never coached someone anyone like Debashish Talukdar. Debashish is all way on the other side of the world in India yet he has impacted me more than most students ever have. I have never seen a drive as strong as Debashish’s to learn and be successful in the digital marketing space. His ethic background, education, location and even the language barrier certainly doesn’t give him an advantage over the rest of us. However, he never let it stop him and he is now on his way to scaling a 6 figure marketing agency, doing way more than most students I have worked with that did indeed get an advantage from their upbringing. Debashish inspires me, and his story is one I just had to share with the world, so I asked him to sit down for an interview and he agreed.
Hey Debashish, how old are you, where are you from, and what do you do?
I’m 21 years old and I grew up in a small town in Assam, India. I currently run a Digital Marketing Agency.
Did/do you go to college?
I’m pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science & Engineering from Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology.
What motivated you to be an entrepreneur?
I wanted to have the flexibility to do what I do and whenever I wanted to. I didn’t want the alarm clock to wake me up every day to go do something that I didn’t want to. Besides that, when you have the responsibility of a business you decide where it is going to go and what the future of the business is going to look like, it’s all on you because you have the control. Last but not least, I always wanted to create an impact and leave a legacy behind.
What made you get into the digital marketing space?
Initially, I didn’t have the capital to get into E-commerce so a friend of mine suggested to me that I should go for Digital Marketing, save the money earned and leverage it to get into E-commerce. But as I was progressing in the Digital Marketing world, I fell in love with the process and started to love what I was doing.
How have you leveraged Personal Branding?
I think I haven’t succeeded as yet to call myself as a personal brand.
What does your average day look like?
- 9AM-6PM- Classes
- 6PM-7PM- Respond to all emails and DM’s
- 7PM-9PM- Study to improve my skills.
- 9 PM- Dinner
- 10PM-12AM- Lead Generation
- 12AM-01AM- Prospecting & Cold dm/calling digital agency clients.
- 01AM-02AM- Monitor data analytics of our clients.
- 02AM-04AM- Design & Schedule work for digital agency clients.
What are your 3 core principles?
Patience & Consistency & Execution is everything.
I believe that to win in the macro one has to be patient enough as good things take time to build and without being consistent that is nearly impossible to happen.
What is your favorite book and why?
“Crushing It” by Gary Vaynerchuk.
When Gary tells us what “crushing it” means I completely agree with him. Crushing it is when you’re happy and living the life that you want affording that dream of yours. Looking at the bigger picture. Most of the time people come up with an excuse not to execute because they don’t realize how much bigger they can get. They seek for short term happiness over the long term. Being authentic.
What would you tell an aspiring entrepreneur in high school right now?
Aspiring entrepreneurs focus on materialistic or monetary values that they forget “happiness and peace of mind” is the real success. Most individuals (myself too) work so hard that they neglect their health. Without your health, your wealth won’t matter.
All you need to do is focus on what you love to do and take good care of your health.
What’s your end game look like?
In the end, I want to be happier, more successful and satisfied by helping people to get from where they are to where they want to be, conquering obstacles along the way.
What do you want your legacy to be?
I want to experience everything and get it out to the people who need it. I want to become the face of a brand and if that earns me the taste of fame along the way I won’t mind. I want to leave behind something that is appreciated by others and want my story to inspire people to make a difference and not just make a living.
In Conclusion, Debashish stands to show all of us that no matter where you come from, no matter what obstacles stand in between you and your dreams, if your will to succeed is great enough, anything is possible. Big thanks to Debashish for taking the time to sit down with me and complete the interview, you can find him on Instagram @_debashish__
