OPINION FOR THE YOUNG AND BUDDING ENTREPRENEURS
In the world of entrepreneurship, it’s easy to underestimate the challenges that lie ahead. As the MD, Mr Rajesh Garg rightly pointed out that many things may seem simple when someone else is doing them, but once you dive in, you realize the sleepless nights and dedication required. He says for me; entrepreneurship success demands a blend of “madness and passion”. One must be willing to push boundaries and persist through adversity.
Additionally, a sharp and an adaptable mindset are essential. Be open to learn, adjust and embrace change. While determination is key, key, so is flexibility. Destiny can play a role too, but be focused on your efforts and commitment to your goals. Don’t settle for normal life; pursue your entrepreneurial dreams with dedication and determination.
