Here you guys will be able to know about my whole story from first till now. This might cost some of your time but… anyways, interested people will read.
Well.. Am gonna start from the first, on Nov 2004 I was born in a village somewhere in Khulna, Bangladesh.
Gaming & Childhood Story
I can’t remember but when I started gaming I was around 6. The time was around 2012, The first mobile I started gaming in button mobile. The game was kinda like GTA, I don’t know if the game was literally GTA or what but that game was kinda like GTA.
One day, I mistakenly pressed 0 then I was able to drive the car or maybe I jumped. I can only recognize that scene but not exactly. It was a really good experience playing GTA on a button phone.
I googled it and found the same pic I used to play back in 2012.
Around 1 year later, my brother bought a nail touch phone then that Java button phone became mine.
After 1 year, my uncle gifted me a Java touch phone and I was so happy because I would able to download and install too many games but unfortunately, this phone was destroyed somehow idek.
Around 2015, my brother bought a laptop for freelancing and sometimes, I used to play GTA vice city on that laptop.
But before buying the laptop I had a second-hand phone which wasn’t in good condition at all. It used to automatically refresh in every few seconds, I didn’t know how to fix that but I really wanted to play Clash of Clans on that phone because some of my older cousins in our village used to play that. So as that phone automatically refreshes every few seconds while playing online games, so I wasn’t even able to play Clash of Clans. So I used to play offline games like Subways Surfers, some car games, and much more actually.
As mentioned before, my brother was a freelancer. He used mobile data to do his work because at that time there wasn’t wifi. So he usually bought internet to do. But one day, his internet had almost gonna expired within 1 day and around 10-15 GB of data left probably, so we download GTA 4 I was so shocked because I never saw that high graphic game in my life. Because that was the great game after GTA vice city. So I played that many times, and completed many missions too😍😍.
When I passed grade 5, my father gifted me a tablet. And I started gaming on that tablet but that tablet wasn’t that good, so literally 5 months later, that stopped working 😢 So that time, I used to play Clash of Clans on my brother’s phone. Also, I tried to upload videos on Youtube too but I don’t know why but I didn’t focus on Youtube at that time.
Then a few months later, my brother bought me pc, and we didn’t have much idea about the graphics card at that time so he bought a cheap graphics card where he bought almost all the high-end parts for pc at that time.
Also, I have waited almost a few months to play GTA 5 on the new pc. But because of the cheap graphics card, I wasn’t able to play GTA 5 in that. So I and my brother were disappointed, also we never tried GTA 5 on that laptop too because we thought the laptop couldn’t handle it but the desktop will but unfortunately, that laptop was able to run GTA 5 smoothly. So we were so shocked because we waited pretty long to play GTA 5 on a new pc but instead of working on new one, it worked perfectly on the old one. But on that pc, some other games worked perfectly like Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, FarCry 4, and more. So I used to play those games on that pc.
Then around mid of 2018, I bought a new Android phone and played Free-Fire and PUBG Mobile, and also tried to do live streams. That time I was around 13 and after months of buying that phone, our family moved to town because of my brother’s work.
Well, After coming to the town, We took wifi that time and I had a new phone too to play games. I got addicted to PUBG Mobile and I totally forgot about the PC. After playing for 6 months on a mobile phone, I know about playing PUBG Mobile on Emulator. then I started playing in an Emulator. But when my family saw I really get too addicted to gaming they started to go against me because I usually slept at 6 am in the morning and woke up at 3 pm, and also didn’t use to study well. I played PUBG Mobile for more than 1 year. Also from that time, my brother told me the importance of money and my mind instantly switched. Because I was seeing that family going against me and also got addicted and started thinking about my future and career. Then I made up my mind to start learning the basics of freelancing or work from around Sep or Oct in 2019. But I didn’t go with gaming because gaming in Bangladesh wasn’t that easy.
It was around before my grade 8 exams, and I was working almost the whole day instead of studying 😐 That board(final) exams were in Nov and I spent my whole time learning HTML, and CSS (Front-End Web Development).
Well.. I got the reward for my hard work very soon because my first theme got approved in ThemeForest on 22 December 2019. It was the happiest day of my life.
And literally a few days later, on 06 Jan 2020, my first theme got sold for 12 USD. And that was my first income at age 15.
After publishing 2 or 3 themes in ThemeForest, I had to leave and moved to Programming from Front-End Development because, from the first, my target was to be a WordPress developer. So to be a WordPress developer, I had to learn PHP language. So Started with C and instead of learning PHP, I mistakenly started learning Java, I had not that much idea about what Programming language required for what platform. So after learning the basics of Java.
I started learning Unity and that’s why I had to learn C# because at that time I didn’t know what Java was used for. I knew that Java used to develop apps but didn’t have any proper idea and started Game Development because from childhood, I liked to play games, so thought game development might be suitable for me very well.
Here’s an example of learning and building my first game by watching a tutorial.
And literally the next month, I started building my own game by myself.

I published another game that month too. Well, Everything was going well. Also, I moved to Unreal Engine because I was so confused that which one should I choose to work with. So I started the Unreal Engine for that, and I learned C++ for that too. But It was really basic and I literally made some projects by watching some tutorials. But I don’t have any examples to show but I did that around for 1 or 2 months maybe.
Then I understand that it’s not that easy to develop a game by a single person or by myself in Unreal Engine because doing design, Music/Voice, and Development is really hard for a single game developer. Also that time my brother had a App Design team and he was requesting me to do it. So I thought this might be good for me as I’ve learned Java before. So it would be easy for me to learn App Development fast. So I started learning App Development in June 2020.
So I started Android App Development, Made some projects too. Then once again, I had to move but this time in the same category but in an app development framework called Flutter. Actually, I moved to Flutter because it was really trendy and so useful & It can able to make apps for almost all platforms in one code-based called Dart (programming language), and also moved because of a project I had to do.
Flutter App Development
So I had to learn dart too but as I’ve already learned many programming languages, the dart was really easy for me. And with Flutter, I was able to produce one of my apps and made around 250USD and it was really good for me because I already spend a lot of time on these but didn’t able to make money but yea THE BEST THINGS I DID MAKE WAS SKILL.
I made many apps with Flutter but I didn’t publish them to Google Play Store. But I published one of my test apps to check whether my code structure is supported by Google or not. But it did. Got easily approved on Google Playstore.

Well, We made office with a team on October 19, 2020. So there something’s changed in our decisions and we focused on business rather than freelancing.
Our first business was Dropshipping. But as we were developers and some of us were designers but we hadn’t any marketers and wasted much money on ads to get success in Dropshipping. Some of our team members’ mindset was not like businessmen, & they were seeing that success ain’t coming fast. So, In early January, They decided to not work with us anymore. So our team had no one except me and my brother 🙂. And after that, my mind literally converted to a businessman. But As I am a gamer since childhood, again I got addicted to games instead of starting a business or working because, between these times, I usually played games in my free time.
But the good thing was, I didn’t get as addicted as I was in 2018. Alongside playing games, I invested and traded in Cryptocurrency.
Well, Some people are still thinking that Cryptocurrency is illegal or uses for bad purposes only. But after getting into that, I understand what is it and how this works.
I was so happy because it was kinda part of the business. Also, in investment, my brother invested with me too. So I had a good amount of portfolio.
I was able to earn more than 300 USD in a single day (earned many days like that) because that time bull run just started. I earned over 4k USD within 2 months. But but but.. Again I messed up. Because BTC dumped suddenly and instead of 300%+ and portfolio went to -90% 😔. I have gone through depression almost for one month.
The main problem was that I started with a big amount. Also, I wasn’t that much expert at all. But until I became an expert it was too late. because I was already in 90% loss.
When I was seeing that everything is happening because of marketing ideas. I thought I should learn digital marketing and this idea I got from my big brother.
Well, After that, I started learning Digital Marketing But I didn’t go for Game Development or App Development because I already said that my mind had already changed to do Business. And the best way to start a business is to learn about Digital Marketing first.
So I started with SEO, Google/Facebook/Instagram Ads, and choose to publish blogs. And this site is one of my first(but not first) blogging websites.
I already changed 2 domains because of niche and technical problems. Niche is the most important thing in blogging. So When I thought niche totally depends on interest. I thought this would be a great idea if I start with Gaming(I already told my whole story about Gaming). And here I am with this site with my dream niche.
Here are some of my Digital Marketing related Certificate:
In the end, I wanna say If there is any person who helped me the most with my journey that is my big brother.
