Who is Jaimin Kapadia a.k.a. The Screwed Up Engineer?

Hey Friend!

My name is Jaimin Kapadia and I’m the founder and owner of this blog.

My life has totally changed ever since I started blogging.

From being just another average joe with an average cubicle job to now a successful blogger making a full-time living, Blogging has allowed me to successfully Escape the Rat Race!

I started Screwed Up Engineer in January 2019, and in just five months, I was able to find high-paying clients for my side-hustle through this blog. (BTW, this is one of the ways you can make money blogging).

I worked with several clients from May 2019 to November 2019 and I was able to earn a full-time income (more than my regular job) from it.

From December 2019, I have shifted the focus of my blog from finding new clients for my side-hustle to help aspiring and fellow bloggers to launch their own blogs & make passive income online.

That’s enough about me for now.

Let’s quickly jump to the point and see what this blog is all about.

What Screwed Up Engineer is all about?

Screwed Up Engineer is a project in which I’ve poured my heart and soul into…

If you’re still reading, then it’s time I share how it all got started and how I came up with Screwed Up Engineer.

How it all got started & why the name “Screwed Up Engineer”?

I have screwed up so many times in my life that I have lost count.

There is one story, however, that I would like everyone to know.

This is actually a good story now, but believe me, I was scared out of mind at that time.

The story begins on one good day when I received a text from a friend saying “the results are out”.

After reading the message, I immediately rushed to my room, sat at my desk, flip-opened my laptop and launched Google Chrome.

I opened the University result web page, entered my roll number, and guess what happened?


I failed in 2 subjects, and on top of that, I couldn’t clear my previous backlogs as well.

I was really terrified.

What should I do now?

Did I just ruin my career?

I thought... I was SCREWED for life!

Or was I really?


Till date, my parents still don’t know that I’ve dropped out of college. So, if you’re close to me, just sush your mouth or I’ll destroy you!

Coming back to the story...

After knowing my results, I spent a few days locked into my room.

Trying to figure out what to do next in my life, I finally came up with a PLAN!

I thought that if I can land a job in my IT field and survive for at least six months, then I’ll tell my parents the TRUTH!

But easier said than done I guess…

I couldn’t find a job. Nobody hired me. And there I was, still confused about what to do next and searching for jobs on the internet.

While searching for jobs, I came across a website that mentioned that you can make REAL money blogging.

I immediately started reading every blog and watching every Youtube video that talked about making money through blogging.

I spent the last 5 years learning about blogging and making some expensive mistakes.

And now, I want to save you from making those mistakes and help you build your own, first profitable blog.

If you’ve made it this far, I want to thank you for being here.

I genuinely appreciate you and I really hope you become my next success story.

Please take action today and share this blog with others if you’ve enjoyed my story and learned anything from this blog.

Your new friend,

Jaimin Kapadia
