“Time & tide waits for none”, I have known this proverb for a long time now. Most probably ever since I went into my elementary or primary school. Or perhaps since my junior high days. I cannot remember this, nor I can remember all the tiny details but the teachings. Like when I was taught by one of my teachers to not hurt my parents when I was still in elementary grade. Similarly I have learnt a lot of other things. Some contributed to my career and some to my social upbringing. All these things combine into me & make me what I, Md Ridwan Chowdhury, am today. And I will discuss about online market in Bangladesh, the newest products and Dhaka based online shops.
My Career Path, at first education
I,Md Ridwan Chowdhury, changed a lot of schools at the very initial stages but one thing stayed on course, that was my education. I completed my elementary level and my junior high from Monipur High School. After my junior high I went into studying two different segments of educational lines. First one was general education & second one was technical education on computer. While I was completing my senior high from St. Joseph Higher Secondary School I was also completing my diploma on Computer Science.
My grad schools:
Then came my graduation that I completed from Khulna University for my Bachelor degree of BBA. Again had a change for my masters degree of MBA which I’m completing from Dhaka University. Meanwhile I had already gone into my professional career.
My Professional Career
I started my career with Naseem Plastic Industreis, then went into Legato services, Robi Axiata Ltd., Dhaka Tobacco (ACL), Rekitt Benckiser Ltd, SWOHR etc. And finally I came into the online marketing profession. All these changes and diversification has taught me a lot of things that was impossible to learn in such a short time.
During early stages of time I preferred movement in my jobs. But when I got the chance to establish my career on the online marketing sector, I took it with both hands. And this has forced me to forgo my preference of the movement that I enjoy so much. It was a big opportunity cost for me. But then again I had the opportunity to establish my own path in the arena of Dhaka based online shops. Here I can combine all the knowledge I have gathered till date altogether. So the opportunity was bigger for me than the opportunity cost that I had to forgo.
This is the statement that I want to share with others so that it helps others to make their own decisions:
“Think about what you like or enjoy, what you know and how you employ it. The rest is yours”
