When asked about his internship lessons Atreya said “In my internships apart from the work experience what I learned was the value of money. I remember the time of my first internship; I was paid 3000 rupees per month. Now before making any expensive purchase I always remind myself that the amount of this purchase was once my monthly stipend. That automatically puts this question in my mind if I really need those expensive things. I think that really saves a lot of money for me.”

When asked about this book Atreya said “This book is not a boring big book, it explains the concept of monetizing your blogs in just 12 pages. My intention was to convey this information in a very short and sweet manner. There is no point in exaggerating and beating around the bush. A 12 page book is easy to read and start as quickly as possible without wasting any time.”
Future Plans: We also asked Atreya about his dreams and future plans he said, “I wish to start some more businesses, there are many such businesses that I am interested in. Right now I am looking for a right time and opportunity to slowly shift my focus to new ideas.
If you ask me about Zera, I am looking to build more distribution channels across Goa and provide services throughout. These channels are estimated to be complete by 2025. I am a firm believer that one must never stop at one place and always aspire for more”
We wish Atreya good luck for his future endeavors.
