Digital Deepak Internship Day-1
This is the first time I am writing a blog article. Really excited and a bit nervous also.
Let me introduce myself first, Am Raghavendra Alampally from Hyderabad, a B.Tech graduate in the field of my dream world Electronics. Now am a Telecom Engineer working for a public sector undertaking, I was not passionate about my job and was constantly looking & exploring my interests. I could unravel my passion for entrepreneurship and started my journey towards that with the help of my Mentor and without disturbing my job.
My business deals with Social Networking and I started to learn digital marketing concepts from YouTube myself. Came across Digital Deepak’s channel and got into his funnel. Joined the Internship program which is unique and insane, pays back for assignments, never heard of this model.
Thrilled to be a part of this internship program and the private FB groups. The content and wisdom shared by Mr Deepak is priceless.
