Who is Harsh Agrawal in real life?
I’m a happy-go-lucky person. A family person who loves the idea of a good time with family and friends. Travelling is what excites me after blogging as it gives a lot of new exposure and time to reflect on my actions. My strongest value is not to hurt anyone and help other while I could.
When & How did ShoutMeLoud happen?
It was the morning of 1st December 2008 when ShoutMeLoud was born. I started blogging with knowing just one fact that I could write and share everything I know with the world. It felt amazing to be able to connect with like-minded people via the blog. After few months of blogging, left my 9-6 job and became a full-time blogger.
Never thought a not so well-known thing called blogging could help me discover myself this much. In past few years have faced some of my biggest fear of speaking in front of an international crowd, represent India for a summit in Pakistan and spoke at numerous universities like the Lovely professional university, Charusat University, Sharda University, Manipal University to name a few.
Can’t thank the time when I took the leap of the faith and left the race to nowhere to become my own boss.
Did you face any obstacles during your journey with ShoutMeLoud?
Challenging yourself to discover a new you every day and walking in an unknown territory was terrifying as well as exciting at the same time. The only obstacle I faced in this 9 years of the journey is myself. Once I learned how to live with myself without conquering me or others, all obstacles became a part of the pathway.
What are your future plans for ShoutMeLoud?
Keep growing the blog with the same or better content to help more individuals around the globe to become their own boss.
