I'm Shruti Pangtey, the founder of Digital Empires and Indian Girling.
Two years ago, I came home to an empty apartment, in a job I didn't like, and in a city where I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life.
I knew I needed to make a change.
A drastic one.
So I did, what every other millennial (who is crazy) would do.
I rounded up all my savings, applied for universities in Germany, bought a "German for dummies" book, and two months later, I had moved to a small town in south Germany.
To study a second Master.
This single move changed my entire life.
It made me handicapped for starters.
I had never lived abroad for two years.
I barely had enough to survive for one.
But I was here, and what could I do?
I found a part-time job, taught myself German and started a blog.
I soon realised this blog was set up to fail, so I started another.
This new blog called Indian Girling started getting a lot of attention.
I became OBSESSED about learning everything I could to create a business from my blog.
I knew people were doing it.
I just didn't know any of them.
So I used whatever free time I had, poured it into learning and soon enough I started to pay my travel from my blog earnings.
If you know how much I travel, that is saying something!
This got me to thinking, if I can do this, why can't you?
Why can't you leave that job that you don't like?
Why can't you travel the world and create a life you love?
Why should you choose between passion and money?
What if you could have both?
This made me start Digital Empires.
