Hi, I’m Rajiv Abraham Nela.
I’m an investor and serial entrepreneur from India. I’d love to introduce myself as Abraham, Christian… just doesn’t have the same ring to it as Bond, James Bond.
For years I worked as a manager and trainer in the corporate world including the world’s local bank.
Then I discovered I couldn’t do the same for life, not if it meant working 15+ hours daily and most weekends.
That made the decision for me to go into business on my own which I did successfully in e-commerce and copywriting.
Unfortunately, the long work hours did not end though, I simply began to work 15+ hours from home.
After a period of prayerful reflection and introspection, I decided that I needed to work on something that did not involve a lot of work, and hence my introduction into the world of investing and trading.
By now this should highlight the fact that learning new skills comes easy to me.
I’m a geek by nature, I like to learn new things, love to tinker with new stuff, and I am mostly self-taught from basic HTML and CSS to various projects on the Raspberry Pi including home automation.
I also like to write and blog, I began to personally blog around 2004, and possibly also a throwback to my days as a copywriter, or an inherent need to express myself creatively.
For the most part though I do what I want, even if it is something as unexciting as binge-watching on Netflix. I am a stay at home husband, and an avid audiophile and videophile. I learn new things like photography, coding on the Raspberry Pi, and home automation with Alexa and Google Home. I also study copywriting and marketing especially in relation to conversions and human psychology and behavior, again a throwback to my days of investment banking, and then going into business on my own in e-commerce.
Mostly though, I am a full-on Christian who is sold on the Lord Jesus Christ for eternity. You can say obeying Him is my calling in life.
PS: This is a work in progress because I am a work in progress.
