I am proud of what I have gained and lost in this entrepreneurial journey. Quitting my job and pursuing my passion was not an easy decision, It is an accomplishment for me.
Seeing your product adding value in this world is the biggest accomplishment. Covering my hometown with my services is also a big achievement for me.

As a start-up founder, I always want to meet the client expectations and if possible, reach above it and deliver satisfactory results. This indeed creates immense pressure.

The best way to handle all this is to always remain positive and keep oneself motivated.
11. What advice would you give to someone starting out?
Believe in what you are giving to the world. If you do not believe in the value addition from your product or service, no will buy it. Also, it’s not the product you are selling; it’s you whom you are selling. So be good at selling yourself.
