As a serial entrepreneur, what are the learnings you took from your previous business have you learned from them?

When I was first starting out in the industry, I failed to convince and communicate with clients. After all poor communicationcan lead to reduced productivity. So, I immediately took responsibility to improve it.  I visited many clients and talked with them, influenced them, though it took time, but I finally got it all back on track.

How has being an entrepreneur affected your family life?

I know there are some entrepreneurs who invest a large amount of time, effort and money to get their businesses rolling, but they often forget about investing time in their families.

But we shouldn’t take our family for granted. Even if raising a family and being an entrepreneur becomes a challenging job.

How do you define success?

My definition of success is to knowing what you are doing is right and helping you and others to lead a better, happier, healthier life.

What are some of the biggest mistakes you’ve made?

I believe, a mistake is only a mistake, if you don’t learn from it.

So far, my biggest mistake was to achieve more than a few goals rapidly, though I failed to accomplish. Howeverwith time, I have realized that this is something impractical and learnt from the experience or I should say learnt from failure.
