Amar Ajnalkar: Top 3 skills required to become a successful influencer.
Akshatha: PASSION-You do best in what you love so without passion you will have no interest to create strategy-You need to have a vision so you’d know in which path you’re going and flexible in trying something and exploring yourself on the way to do so hard work- A must I’d say because there are no such things as free lunch or nothing that we do here is a cakewalk so we put in our thoughts, time, patience, hard work to influence. These 3 skills would really help us excel.
