- What were the most difficult challenges you faced while starting your business?
Challenge predominantly faced was to make business owners understand the need for advisory for their business. There is a lot of bias amongst the entrepreneur related to their brands or products.

- Why did you choose to start this (specific) business?
Good question. Honestly while working with media houses, my profile was more stereotyped. The scope of learning and experimentation with the available resources was quite dreary. I wanted to move out from the fearful, expected and stereotypical life to start a new journey full of adventure, expecting the unexpected, fearless and experimental.
- Have you learnt about leadership and entrepreneurship after becoming an entrepreneur? What have you learnt?
Not exactly. Leadership and entrepreneurship have been in my genes. My journey of being an entrepreneur has taught me perseverance, patience, agility, resilience and motivation in hard times. Stay focus on your goal without any distraction –money and fame are the byproducts of hard and smart work.
- How do you manage to stand better and be unique in terms of competition?
I don’t have any competition. I compete with myself.
- If you had one piece of advice to someone who is just starting his or her business, what would it be?

No budging, Open to learning / be the better part of yourself always/ be updated with latest and futuristic tech trends and your work field/ be good listener and observer / learn from tiniest thing/respect people around barring age, gender, status / be grateful to almighty.
