“Let’s Go with full efforts and catch your dreams”
Why did you choose entrepreneurship over a job?
One line which always pushed me from last 20 years “ Gulami karte hue paida hue hai, gulami karte hue marnge nahi”
Unfortunately in the beginning had to choose a job over entrepreneurship since I wanted to learn otherwise I was very clear in my thoughts from young days I will die as an entrepreneur.
You have one life- make it big, make an impact, and if luck is with you and you get the right opportunity to change lives, Go for it. Creating something from nothing. Every business starts as an idea. You get to create it from the ground up.
Go for it -- nothing is stopping you! Every single decision that involves your business is your responsibility, from the initial concept and branding to the growth and goal setting. Nobody will get in the way of your vision. “If you are born poor it's not your mistake, but if you die poor it's surely your mistake”
What was your key driving force to become an entrepreneur?
I started this because of my passion. I don't care for profit as crazy as that sounds. We build dreams and nothing is as excited as to build n fulfill your own dreams and it gives you wonderful fillings when you have given the opportunity to do for your clients.
Everyone has a different choice. Some people do things simply for money few want to get away from the 9 to 5 desk job so they do a start-up for freedom. Others do it passionately like me. Everyone is different and no answer is wrong.

“I do not believe that your best creative work is done when you’re stressed out”
