From poor farmer’s family to becoming the owner of a well-known IT company

If you have big dreams, define your own success, stay motivated and work hard, there will be no boundary to what one can achieve in life. Upendra Rana, who is being seen as a role model by many young entrepreneurs, never thought that he would become writer and entrepreneur. Today, he has years of experience in digital marketing. Rising East defines him as the “first Indian writer” who wrote a book on SEO and a Delhi based Hindi magazine Brahmasagar named him “Ruchi se miltey Rozgar.”

He has also been nominated for an award “The Human Excellency” which is going to be presented to him on  28-Apr-17 at Audifort Auditorium, Delhi. He will also get a Second Award on 11-May-17 in Mumbai. For this, he has been interviewed by several TV news channels, FM Radios both national and internationals. His interviews and success stories have also been published in several local and national newspapers besides digital media. The Youth decided to feature after coming across his story on a popular website of India. It takes enormous amount of hard work to reach where Upendra is today.


The modern world is full of enormous  possibilities and countless opportunities however  there was a time when Upendra was searching for a job to earn a mere livelihood  in 2012 after completing MCA, one company offered him to do two month work for free. At that moment, he did not have fair knowledge about digital marketing, so much so that no books were available in the market written by Indian writer from to learn and understand SEO. He never wanted to see the young generation face the same hurdles and challenges therefore he decided to write a book as soon as he became master over it. A dream doesn’t come true through magic. It takes lots of sweat, hard work and passion. Over the phone, he let us know  his adversities that he had to faced during his book publication. “No one shows interest in my content digital marketing. That’s why I have to move German Publisher and got my booked published through “BookRix”.


Upendra left no stone unturned, he has took himself out of the comfort zone and brought out the bug in him. There is a popular saying hard work pays off and it did for Upendra who currently owns an IT company named “Make Your Brandz” where he does works concerning IT. He also gives free training to poor youths whose parents couldn’t afford fee. People like Upendra are the future examples of the world whose main motive of life is to earn respect instead of money.


“If I am provided a chance, I would still not do things differently and happy with digital marketing as it’s a vast field and can give jobs to so many needy job seekers”. Said Upendra


He went on sharing his views with us, he said, “Though my  Father, elder brother and mother are my ideals but father inspires me the most. My father’s journey from a farmer’s boy to Principal in government School at Arunachal Pradesh is no uncommon. I have no words to describe his (my father’s) journey and would just say that, I am Proud to be his son.”


“There is no shortcut formula to become successful. Success comes into multiple steps. Each and every step has barrier that one needs to cross to test peak of success.” Upendra added


For him writing is always a challenging task but you can manage if you have good critics in your home. His wife supports him the most in his writing endeavour.


Job satisfaction was the key driver for him and his struggle with less marks and recession made him a Digital marketer and he is now happy with the choices he made.


As we all know that failure gives you the power to face all emerging challenges and one day you become successful- keeping this in his mind Upendra worked hard for hours and spent  sleepless nights, with hope  to take one step back before taking a quantum step forward, he never let hardships and weaknesses to prevent his way and which further gave him the potential to achieve anything he wants.


When we sought his Mantras for success for other youths he said, “I request all the youths to have trust in God and study hard. Whatever God wants for you according to your position and strength, you will have it. Never lose hope at any stage of life, if you have longing and innovative thoughts then become Entrepreneur. No one can stop you. One day you will be on cloud for sure and no one can stop you”.
