About Ayesha Siddiqua

I can write about anything but writing about my own self is pretty challenging for me.

Well, I am up for the challenge today!

Hi lovely readers,

I am Ayesha from India & I am here to share my knowledge with you all. If you are someone who wants to start a blog, you can start here.

If you are someone who always dreamt about becoming an entrepreneur, start a side hustle, you can read this guide on how to start an online business.

If you are still in college or a housewife or want’s to earn extra bucks, start freelancing here.

Well, I am from a Computer Engineering background & I enjoy writing both codes & content.

Professionally, I keep switching between developer & writer mode daily.

And my love to talk with passionate people, and I have my own venture as well. I named it Invent Isle; you can visit the site if you need any help.

Background:

In 2016, when I was in the final year of my college and was placed in an MNC(campus placement), I came across a freelancing website & thought to give it a try. And amazingly, I got a few freelancing projects related to content writing.

And for the first time in my life, I earned money. You know it gives me a thrill when I start making money for the first time, mostly because I was a student.

I started working for a Digital marketing agency & that was the first time I heard the word “digital marketing.”

I am the kind of person if something excites me. I dig it even further until I get it. And this time, digital marketing hits me. And the reason why I get excited about it because, in my early days of engineering, I developed an android app for college students to help them with the selection of Engineering & Medical colleges.

That app got only 100+ downloads. At that time, I realized development is not everything. The visibility of the product is equally important. However, it was a small project. However, it gave me immense learning.

I read a lot about digital marketing online. I even did some experiments on my blog.

When I got overwhelmed with the knowledge, I thought to share the same at my blog, where I used to share coding stuff. Amazingly, my write-ups got a lot of attention & love.

And one fine day, one of my clients introduced me to a startup founder, who offered me a project and paid me decently.

After that, he asked me to help him train freshers in his new startup & to come up with a plan to outrank their competitor. I refused to do that because I was still in college & was not confident enough to train someone older than me.

He said, ‘it’s okay even if we fail several times.’

And his trust in me made me say ‘Yes.’

Surprisingly within three months, the company got a lot of exposure online & they started making profits. The founder was so happy that he asked me to become his business partner.

I declined even though I wanted to become an entrepreneur from my childhood because I wanted to get exposure to an MNC first. In those three months, I earned the amount I was offered for a year in that MNC. But money is not everything to fall for. At least not for me.

I love to explorechallenge experiment.

Soon, I got graduated & entered the corporate world. Within a couple of months, I got a development project for a UK-based client. It was great learning for me, and my assigned mentor was super helpful. He guided me in every step. However, I left the company within a year.

My entrepreneurial spirit was back & from the past one & half years, I am working with several startups & mid-sized companies and offering them digital services.

I am a workaholic person. It’s like I can live without food but not without work. But these days, I am working to balance my life and also started Yoga & meditation.

Well, I had a very roller coaster & exciting rides.

Life taught me a lot of lessons, and I made mistakes that I can’t even count.

These days, becoming an entrepreneur is a new cool. However, Entrepreneurship is a journey with lots of ups and downs, sleepless nights, hard work, dedication, and unpredictable conditions.

Starting your own is really very difficult. If you don’t have financial backups or if your family is dependent on you, then never suddenly leave your job; instead, start a side hustle.

My learnings:

  • Never work only to earn money; otherwise, you will end up being empty.
  • Never work to get tags like ‘Entrepreneur,’ instead, become a problem solver.
  • Switching jobs to getting satisfaction is an infinite trap. Satisfaction is a matter of spirituality. Don’t try to find it outside you.
  • Discover what you don’t want to do early in life; otherwise, you will end up reaching NOWHERE.
  • Following passion is good but don’t become a slave of it.
  • You can’t change anyone, and you should not waste your time arguing with negative people; otherwise, you will become the one.

Well, well, I have finally written about me.

Now it’s your turn. Let me know about you in the comment section.

I would love to connect with passionate bloggers.

Do let me know your views in the comment section, and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter. You can also connect with me on Instagram.

Tada,

Ayesha

  1. Hey swt, read about like wow? You look so young for that much experience! Anyhow am a passionate speaker, I do fly each I hold mic. Besides that am a manufacturer who is looking to promote my product ” a mouth wash” plus other products that I love. Looking forward to learning everything I can from you.

    1. Firstly, thanks for stopping by & giving it a read. And I am overwhelmed with your complement that I look young 🙂 Great to connect with you. And great to know that you are a speaker & manufacturer. I hope, I can bring some difference with this blog. Let’s see, if we can help each other in future. Do drop your website/product link, I would love to check.

  2. From lots of successful men I learnt one thing that failure is must, without failure a man can’t improve. Even Sachin Tendulkar sometimes out in Zero, so love your dreams, live in your dreams and do everything you can, success or failure isn’t in our hands but we can do our work, all the best.

  3. Well, I too am from engineering background, and I too graduated in the ‘17 batch (Delhi). Although, I did not go the corporate side (just not for me), and went the government side. But it’s really good find such similarities with a fellow blogger. I’m new here. And your stuff is great 👍🏻
