I grew up in a big joint family in the southern tip of India and did my schooling there at Kanyakumari. I did my Engineering on Electronics and Telecommunication. Worked as a systems engineer in NEPC Micon Wind energies and then for Baron Power limited. Started my first business on imported pneumatic filters in Chennai which didn't go well as expected.
Later on I did a course on IBM Mainframe and got a job at a company in Houston, Texas. Fortunately my Visa was delayed and then my friend Joe Felix who was working for Dubai government took me there and I worked as a web developer in Dubai. Initially I worked for a restaurant B2b portal and then on Recycleinme
. Joe(and his wife Ms.Bindu) as I remember him is a remarkable person and had helped over 25 people to shape up their careers without expecting any kind of returns. Joe Felix is no more, he passed away on Jan 1st 2011 due to blood cancer.
Moving to the professional life, I developed biznessuae.com
while at Dubai. I then worked for a multinational online supplement store as an Internet marketer(the term SEO was used very rare then). I was able to rank them high for sports supplements, bodybuilding supplements etc. which tripled their sale.
Eventually I got married and settled down in India. By 2002 I started submitinme.com
with 2 other guys one of them my younger brother. Now we have 90+ staff working for submitinme.com
which offer a wide range of SEO services focusing on Local SEO
