Hi I’m Sahil Khanna, Engineer turned Digital Marketer. Helping more than 500000 lakh entrepreneurs across the globe with my youtube channel, Intellectual Indies that is ranked one of the top digital marketing channels in India.

.

I started my life as as perfectly imperfect child with many flaws.I am the kind of person who loves learning and was never concerned about the end result. In my free time, I love investing, singing and playing cricket. Money is something that doesn’t fascinate me but the impact and difference that could be created in someone’s life because of me.

let’s get into my length of employment

Glue Design [ 2015 - 2016 ]

I was the business analyst at Glue Design and my role was to study the business and make growth strategies for the loopholes that existed. I got to learn about the office culture, how is it to get a team do the required work and that salary is deducted if you take a leave.

my educational attainments

LITTLE FAIRY PUBLIC SCHOOL, DELHI

Higher Secondary school 

School was fun. In my school, my teachers encouraged me for singing where I could land up to zonal level performances and competitions and that’s the best thing as it was the place where I could achieve public confidence.

doon college of engineering & Technology, DEhradun

Bachelors in chemical engineering 

I loved science as my baby and playing with chemicals was fun for me so I did my graduation in Chemical Engineering. Also, I was not clear what I wanted to do and my father had a chemicals business, he told me to do chemical engineering so that I would increase the business somehow.

Institute of Marketing and Management, DELHI

 MBA in Marketing and International Business

After completing my engineering, I joined my father’s chemical business and realized that it is not easy at all. After working for 2 months, I realized I’m the guy with no business knowledge and hence opted for an MBA. I wanted to pursue an MBA in advertising but my father wanted me to learn and increase his business abroad. I did an MBA in marketing and international business. Doing the course was one of the best learning experience in my life.

my current state of affairs

entrepreneurship – been doing business

I was always keen to learn something new and apply it. I remember I was in class 4 when Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan was goin on and our school also took the initiative to Clean the school campus. Each student was asked to bring liquid soap. I went home and my father gave me liquid soap in a small bottle of medicine. My friends saw that and asked me to bring the same for them. I told them it is for Rs.5.  With time, I got 50-60 orders and was in a problem that how do I fulfil them now. I went to the local chemist and asked him that how much would that bottle cost? He sais it is for Rs. 2. I was able to sense a loophole in the business that was I had to buy the bottle again and again. I asked my friends why don’t you get it refilled. I captured around 80% of the students in the school.

One PTM my father got to know about this and told me to study and time would come for you to earn money.

.

Now it was around 6-7th standard , there was huge craze of tazo. I used to buy that packet and sell the tazo that came inside the packet. My cousin has a collection, one day I went to his house and bought all from him which later I sold for many thousands to one boy in the school.

.

When I was doing engineering, my friend came and asked if I would be able to make a website. I agreed as I had computer background friends. This was the beginning of my freelancing career. Gradually I started getting more projects related to SEO, app development and digital marketing.

.

I  started looking at my father’s business after graduation and realised that I have no business knowledge. I opted for MBA. During my post graduation. I started building my digital marketing team and approaching International clients. Now we have over 200 recurring clients working with us.

.

My agency, Lapaas was running fine, I was also looking at my father’s business with my full time job.

On 1st Jan,2017 I started my Youtube channel. I did job for around 2-3 years at multiple companies before I started my institute.

the youtube affair

It was 31 December 2016, I was lying in my bed, watching IIFA Awards and seeing my friends check-ins on Facebook, I wasn’t satisfied and wanted to do something in my life. I made a New Year’s resolution that I will start a Youtube channel, Intellectual Indies from the next day. I continuously made videos for 2 months and did not receive many views. I persevered and finally one of my videos took off after that I made more videos and case studies. Since that day I have never turned back. I didn’t monetize my channel for the first 5 months. I thought it is such a good way that I would learn something and share which would result in making me also understand that topic in a better.

Also, I spread the message that one should start and learn and improve on the way. I believe nothing is perfect in the beginning and therefore one should focus on starting and making things better gradually with customer feedback and reviews. If you see my first few videos they all were recorded on a mobile phone and consistently putting out content now I have managed to buy a DSLR and record videos in 4k for my viewers.
