Also, since we are a start-up and still in early phase which makes it challenging to keep enough cash surplus and cash inflow at sometimes.

Q9) Tell us about an accomplishment you are most proud of?
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.
Q10) How do you handle the pressure?
As a start-up founder, I always want to meet the client expectations & if possible, reach above it and deliver satisfactory results. This indeed creates immense pressure. There is no greater relief for me than a happy client. We put our best efforts to make our clients satisfied with our work. I look forward to not only gaining new clients but retaining the old ones. The best way to handle all this is to always remain positive and keep oneself motivated.
Q11) What piece of advice would you give to college graduates who want to become entrepreneurs??
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.Prashant Kumar
