About Mohit Tater
Hi, I’m Mohit.
As you can probably tell, I already like you.
I don’t like labels, but if I had to describe myself, I’d probably use some combination of entrepreneur, writer, coach, and traveler.
I come from a city called Jodhpur, which is in state of Rajasthan in India.
I graduated from college in 2011 and had two choices in front of11 me.
1. Take up a corporate job
2. Go do my Masters
I didn’t like either, but still went ahead with the job. Though I got a job in a really cool startup, after a few months, it started to feel boring and unfulfilling.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that I wanted to spend my life doing something much more than sitting in an office doing boring stuff everyday.
I wanted to travel and live in other countries. I wanted to build my own business. I wanted to spend as much time as I wanted spending time with my friends and family. I wanted to make more than $10k a year.
I realized that I couldn't do any of this while working for someone else.
So in mid 2012 I left my job having no idea what I would do next.
My first business
I had already started building websites in my spare time but was unable to make any momey from them. Then I cam across Flippa.com, which was a marketplace for websites. That was all I needed.
So I went ahead and bought my first website for $2500. I ran it for 6 months and then sold it for $12,000.
I told to myself, this thing works!
Since then, I have come a long way. Starting from $0 in 2013 to a running a successful six figure business in a span of 2 years.
I currently have over 20 sites in my portfolio which my team manages for me.
Along the way, I also started a few other businesses of which some failed and some did well.
Currently, I run multiple businesses, which include, among others, a digital agency, a Kindle publishing business and a furniture export company. But the best part is that I run all these businesses from wherever I am in the world!
I started this blog with a clear purpose, which is to help people,
- Build a business that can be run from anywhere in the world
- Live a life worth writing about
This blog chronicles everything from my journey after quitting the job to living in different countries while I tried to figure out this whole internet thing, and now my life as a successful entrepreneur.
You will find all my best advice on starting/growing businesses and living a better life. It’s a no BS firsthand account of what I’ve tried, what has worked for me and what has not. I really hope you find something inspiring and helpful.
Head over to my bucket list to know what what makes me tick!
