I was an active volunteer during all my student life and you know there is a point in everybody’s life when you just know what you have to choose. My interest and activeness in the various multiple events helped me to meet my passion of guiding and helping the people, especially students. And therefore, I decided to jump into the education sector. I have seen students literally struggling for a good guidance, motivation and over all, a mentor, who can guide them in all thick and thin and can make them taste the insights. At that point, I decided to become a mentor / Coach and to quit my job.
What was your key driving force to become an entrepreneur?
I wanted to do something that can be above the typical business. As I said, being a volunteer was always into me, which really helped me to accelerate my self-motivation for taking a big risk at that point of time. You know there are some people, who just cannot handle 9-5 and they don’t really know that.
I will tell you something which very few people know about me. I always wanted to work in a bank and during that era, working in a bank, for a lower middle class boy was an achievement of pride. And I opted that as well. I was efficiently working in a good bank but not for the profile for which I aimed to work at some point of time. The more I was working, closer I was to take step out to the open world. Instead of my good results, there was something that was continuously making me attracted towards being a full time Student’s Volunteer & Mentor. Yes, Student’s Volunteer & Mentor! I am and that is my DNA.
