Hi, my name is Karthik.
I’m a copywriter, online course creator, and podcaster.
But before I did any of this, I worked in product and marketing roles for some of the world’s biggest (and smallest) companies. I did that for the first 15 years after college.
I lived a busy life, and I traveled a lot✈️. It was fun.
But things changed. FAST.
And it started with my decision to take a career break to spend more time with my family.
I quit my job.
The day was 16th May 2016.
It was my last day at work. A career I pursued (and thrived) for over 15 years. And the only question everyone asked me was “What’s your plan?”
To tell you the truth, I had none.🤷🏻♂️
But people are funny. They never seemed to take “no” for an answer.
You got to be the man with a plan. Right?
I started blogging just a few months after quitting my job. I started to write what I knew. In many ways, that was my first experience with teaching.
In fact, I didn’t know that I was teaching…until I published my first Ebook. And before I could realize it, my Ebook had gone sorta “viral”.
That’s when I did something that changed my life. FOREVER.
I started a podcast.
In the next two years, I wore plenty of crazy hats. I conducted workshops, created websites, taught college students, did speaking gigs.
And then I did something else that took my life to a whole new level.
I created an “online course”.
And the rest is history.
Now that’s my “origin story” of sorts.
But everything started with building an audience.
I couldn’t have been here, but for the audience I built.
So here’s a little “gift” I’d like to leave you with. It’s a short course I created to help people with an idea (or a business) to build an audience. It’s called the Podcast Audience Building System. I hope you’ll put it to good use.
