Anyone who was connected with me on Facebook would have never thought I would get off Facebook. I didn’t only delete my account on Facebook, I deleted all my social media accounts.

Life is funny and unpredictable. I have a bachelor of technology in computer science and engineering and masters in computer science. I didn’t plan to become an engineer. I wanted to become a musician and singer. I have always loved helping people. I am also very passionate about sharing with people what could benefit them. So, how I got into Sales and Customer success? I had been a software developer all my professional life and loved software design and architecture but never felt fulfilled. I have heard people tell me many times that I should be in Sales. If I…

Last night as I was putting my son to bed, I said to me, I miss you so much when aren’t here. He said to me, you know daddy also misses me when I am not with him.
