Many people think that success simply lies in one attaining their vision of a good life, but boy, are they wrong! Success is, in the words of Shraddha Shrivastava – founder and CEO of Digital Height, when you enjoy the journey and believe in your efforts. From not having enough money to study for her required courses to building a digital empire, this is the saga of struggle and success of a small-town girl breaking down barriers to bring value and prosperity to her life.
India may be known as one of the biggest technology hubs, but its rural areas are still very restrictive and adhere strictly to conservative values. Shraddha Shrivastava, a digital marketing guru and LinkedIn coach, hails from a small town in one of these areas. She was not allowed to have the most basic of privileges like wearing jeans and traveling on her own, and now she’s off to multiple cities, wearing whatever she likes and being an inspiration to countless others.
Sharddha has shared how her determination to better her circumstances has given her a broader perspective on life. Breaking through generational barriers and racial discrimination was tough, but this self-made businesswoman was not one to give up without a fight.
There was one mantra that directed all her life actions – to always do what she loves and enjoys. Hoping to find a job that satisfied her heart and soul, Shraddha dipped her toes in a number of fields before setting herself down in digital marketing. Some of her past ventures include human resources and sales, but after being left unsatisfied with the constant salary cuts in the latter, she turned towards digital marketing and never had to look back.
However, navigating the digital marketing world wasn’t a smooth sail either. With no prior knowledge of the field and no money to take on new courses, it felt like a test of her consistency and perseverance which she successfully passed. She set the sails of her own ship and taught herself all the basics of digital marketing which include content writing, creative designing, website building, SEO, and a lot more.
Once she learned what she needed to do, there was no stopping her from cutting through the waves and mastering the digital marketing seas. Sharddha is now a top-notch marketer who was listed among the top 200 members of LinkedIn’s Creator Accelerator Program in India for 2022. To this day, she keeps adding more jewels to her crown, including being named Best Women Leader of Asia 2022 and the Pride of Gwalior.
For Shraddha, freelancing also paved the way for building up a small team of focused-centric individuals, which eventually flourished to become a well-known digital marketing agency, Digital Height, operating in 8 countries and growing.
