Welcome to the Course!
Let's kickstart your journey with me towards creating your successful career in the field of Marketing. I am Darpan Saxena, your guide on this journey and in this course. Before I take you through my 5-step BASIC Blueprint for success, let me share with you my story and my journey.
Who am I?
Hello, I am Darpan Saxena this side. I am an engineer (yes, a General Engineer Male) and an MBA from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Udaipur. My time at the B-school is what gave me a really new perspective on how I can make the most of the opportunities that are out there.
Overall, I have over 6 years of work experience at one of India's leading education companies, where I was the Product Head of their biggest product in terms of revenue. Being a product manager is truly being the CEO of your product. And that is where I got to learn/apply/improve my marketing strategies.
Here's my entire career journey till now in a snapshot:
Now, before you start with the Lesson #1 of the course, I wanted to share this orientation with you. In this part of the course, I share with you my story that how I went from complete hopelessness with regards to my career to being able to control my career outcomes.
This orientation will set the foundation just right for you to start believing in yourself. With this mindset, I will take you further into the course to discover what are the 5 steps and the 3 secrets you need to know to make a great career in Marketing.
