A Little Bit More About Me
Broke Bloke, I came to be given the title when my friends started calling me once they realized that I was a spendthrift and was in debt every time they checked. While I was okay with this, It also was the driving force behind me to find a better life both for me and my family. I’m from sunny Chennai in Sound India. I’m 31 and work part time from home. It was an epiphany that guided me to start blogging.
I started my first business when I was 25 which I sold within 2 years when I realized that business was not for me. I liked to work on things not manage them. I soon moved on to building various authority blogs that served as my primary source of income.
Over the years I’ve build blogs that have generated in excess of $7000, which might not be a large sum for many, but none the less – I’m happy to say that my blogs have been profitable and continue to put money in the bank.

I believe that people are divided by people who hide behind religion. As a wise man once said, “people would be the destruction of people”. As I’ve grown older I’ve come to see more and more people with strong faith have only tried to manipulate or use religion for their own gain.
I believe that it takes humanity and faith in this world to make it a better place. Give back to the community you live in, help those in need and be a helping hand and spread the positive word that builds hope and faith in the minds of people.
Ever since I got a wake-up call 2 years ago, my life has been all about being positive, spreading positive messages and motivating the people that surround me to be positive.
I’m a firm believer in giving back to the community and also helping budding entrepreneurs. I’m a regular contributor to the Kiva Foundations.
Apart from this, I’ve started something called the Bloggers Social Responsibility. I’ve seen a few bloggers do this and has inspired to create a community around this in an effort to encourage others to step forward and make a difference.
As part of the Bloggers Social Responsibility (BSR), I donate 10% of all my earnings to charity to help those in need. If you are interested in knowing the various groups of people I contribute to you can check out the page dedicated to BSR.
About This Blog
At the end of 2014, I came to realize that I was actually broke. With over 400000+ in debt and a job that barely paid for my daily expenses let alone pay my bills. It was clear to me that I had been stuck in a rut.
I turned to the only thing I loved the most, blogging. I started a blog that titled “Broke Bloke Blogs” why? cause I was broke and I needed to make a better living both for me and my family. I was back after a long break. I was pumped up and excited that I was able to get my life back on track.

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”
