In what could be called as a proud moment for the city, motivational speaker Simerjeet Singh made it to the top 10 podcasters for the year 2021 on the audio-streaming platform Gaana.

On this momentous occasion, Simerjeet Singh, who hails from the Kapurthala Chowk, shared his interesting life journey of how he realised that his powerful voice, coupled with knowledge of linguistic and communication skills, and voice modulation could take him to places.

He said: “Till 2007, I was working with the hotel industry. Having served in the US, UK and Dubai, I chose to move closer to his hometown Batala and took up the job of food and beverage manager at Hotel Radisson in Jalandhar. I had travelled a lot and explored the world and thought of a multiple options for myself by then. Even in the job, I knew that I had a natural ability of training and motivating people.”

Happy to call himself a ‘change maker’, Simerjeet acknowledges the contribution of his better half, “My wife Tarveen, who was a real estate consultant, too liked the idea of switchover. Basically, she also wanted to take to Reiki counselling and we sort of had a common goal of becoming entrepreneurs in more or less the same line. Now, with newer achievements coming and more milestones being achieved, we are happy having taken that decision.”

Other than being a podcaster with 1.2 million listens on platforms such as Gaana, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and JioSaavn, Simerjeet, who is known for motivating people with his story telling style and poem narration, is also present on other social media platforms like YouTube where he has over 4 million subscribers. “While on video, we usually end the session in a few minutes and prefer to keep in short and crispy, we have more liberty as a podcaster as people can continue to listen to it while they are doing some household work or even travelling in a car. Once I have captured their attention, people like to listen to the end of my story and the context that I explain with it,” he tells.

Armed with training in Neuro Lingual Programming from London, he tells, “I had started with the traditional format of travelling to various institutes and talking to the people there. I used to like that format a lot. But eventually I started with this one around February 2020 with a team of videographers, video editors, sound editors in my studio set up and it helped me get down to a lot of audience in the Covid times.”

On choosing an offbeat career, he said, “It was difficult for me to face my relatives. They all used ask me what work I am engaged in. When I used to tell them about making these programmes, their next question is this must be my hobby and that they were asking me about my occupation”.
