I am my own inspiration, it may sound like I am being self-obsessed, but it’s a fact. When I wake up every day, I have a zest to make it big and strive hard. I want to bring an impact on people’s lives, and that drive in me encourages me to go that extra mile.
- Tell us about your background and journey.
My journey has been quite exciting. I hail from Nohar and then started working online, which was tough amidst all the competition. I started strong, and once I had a stronghold in the online market, I am fortunate that I am able to do this worldwide. Lots of planning, hard work, and execution were required.
- What has been the inspiration behind starting your company, and how did you come up with it?
I am my own inspiration and my brother too, it may sound like I am being self-obsessed, but it’s a fact. When I wake up every day, I have a zest to make it big and strive hard. I want to bring an impact on people’s lives, and that drive in me encourages me to go that extra mile. I always wanted to be a businessman where I am my own boss. Everyone works; it depends on how you work. Some work hard, and some work smart.
- What has been the most challenging part of your job?
Challenges are a part of life. Setting up a whole new business of silver jewellery called silveradda.com online itself was challenging. The moment the thought came, I felt uncomfortable as to how will it happen. But I believed in myself, and my brother helped me a lot. Here I am.
- Where do you see yourself and your company in 10 years? What is the vision?
Well, honestly, I haven’t thought about it. I strive daily. This pandemic came, and we all faced so much loss. But during the pandemic, I started Heytech, through which I learned a lot about marketing. There were many plans that I made. But now, it’s better to work hard and go with the flow as life is unpredictable.
- How to deal with failure, and how can one minimize the unknowns?
As I previously answered. Have short-term vision and goals. This can be achieved, and you can take baby steps rather than long jumps. I could have just jumped from Smalltown Nohar to Worldwide. But Rajasthan became my playground for trial and error and lots of learning.
- Can you share some advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?
Believe in yourself, don’t give a damn about what others think because it’s you who has to deal with your bills, not them.
- What is your mantra for success?
Do it with passion, or not at all. If you are really passionate about what you do, then you are unstoppable.
