Tell us about yourself & about your business?
Beyond Academics- By Yash is a YouTube Channel started as a passion project to conduct Talk Show and Interview with people who have pursued a career beyond their academical background and have seen great success in that. Also, it brings out other Educational and Informative content in easy understanding language.
What is the story behind your initiative?
I always believed in the idea that Education is very important to build a Character and it should never be a barrier or influencer to the profession or career you choose in your Life. On the other hand I saw many people stuck behind the accomplishment of their academics. Hence to pass on this message I started this channel.
Tell us about an accomplishment you are most proud of?
During the initial days I was able to speak to very successful people like Atul Khatri- Comedian, Jitendra Chouksey- Founder of Fittr.
What were the challenges that you faced and how did you overcome them?
The biggest challenge was inviting guest to your show. I decided that I wont get anything easy hence I decided to do cold emails and consistent follow ups. Also asking someone to connect with specific person was big challenge, but I went ahead and did whatever wa required.
If you had one piece of advice to someone who just started out, what would it be?
If you think you are stuck somewhere or need help from someone specific, please go ahead and ask. The Universe will give you all the ways to help you out.
Where do you see yourself after 5 years from now?
Probably more than a million Subscribers.
What is the secret behind the name? Why Beyond Academics?
To start moving beyond your academical qualification. To start doing something which you always wanted to do or try.
