We can’t contain our excitement that we have successfully completed 12 years. The journey has been thunderous with precious memories we want to treasure forever.
Each team member proved to be an expert at their craft. My team members stood by me during rain and storms for the past 12 years. We have sailed through storms & wind and yet reached the shore all thanks to combined efforts and endless willpower. What set us apart are the lessons we embraced for the upcoming future. Here I am, with experience unfolding, ready to share my learning with you.
What it takes to be a leader..
According to me, a leader is an innovator, creator, disciplinarian and team player.
Only a person who can adapt to the frequent disruptions in the market can be a great innovator. This innovator brings ideas and solutions to problems. Who is a disciplinarian? Someone who can come up with a plan to execute their innovative ideas. And a team player is responsible to keep the team motivated while executing the plan and walking towards the common goal. A leader wears these different hats to play all the roles single-handedly.
I am a firm believer that a leader doesn’t give commands but intently listens to what his team members have to say, and guides them toward their goals.

6 lessons I learned in these 12 years:
Advice for young entrepreneurs
Don’t take success to your head and failure to your heart. Be humble. Whatever you do, give it your best shot. Making use of every opportunity in hand is a huge propeller toward long-term success. Always have a shock absorber when you take bigger risks, meaning there should be a backup plan. As Ronnie Screwvala writes in his book, Dream with your eyes open, there is a difference between plan B and a backup plan for your plan A. Determine your further steps if your plan fails. This will save you a lot of time, effort and money.
A lot has been said and done in the world of entrepreneurs. Here’s the open secret - Know what you need and what you can do to achieve your goals. These 12 years, I have learned that it’s essential to keep our heads down and act as a problem-solver to people around me. I hope you can implement these lessons in your entrepreneurial journey.
All the best!
