Anik Singal Wiki: Early Life
Born in an upper-class family, his family and relatives were all either doctors, lawyers, or high-level engineers. Having a pre-destined future like, in this case, was a considerable burden for Anik, that only after realized that he was pursuing a wrong path for him leading a well-paid but unsatisfying life.
The only advantage of having nothing when you start is that you have no pressure to lose something.
In this case, despite the initial pressure from relatives and friends to continue his “sure-path” in Medical school, Anik decided to go hard with his business while attending business school, working night and day to make it work.
It took patience, however, for Anik to get initial results. After 18 months of 0$ earned, he gave himself an ultimatum “earning at least 1$ online by the next 24 hours.”
When he eventually made $330 that night, he realized that his dream was possible and kept pursuing it.
His online publishing company blew up in the subsequent years, making more than $10 million in revenues.
His story is similar in a way to another entrepreneur in the online publishing industry, Tai Lopez.
From Zero to Hero
Anik Singal made it. He was young with a fast-growing business. However, things started to decline, not only in terms of business results (debt kept rising while profit shrank) but under a health perspective as well.
It was during a business trip in Amderstam that Anik realized that where he was leading his life was a dead end.
He was hospitalized and risked to die. When he woke up, he brought his online business to the basics, focusing mostly on email marketing, and in the subsequent years, he managed to sell over $100 million in digital goods.
