1. Tell us more about your company and your journey.

Coming from a family where no one has ever heard about entrepreneurship, I always wanted to do something of my own, I never tried to engage myself in 9 to 5 jobs as I never wanted to hamper my potential which I can only execute once I am doing my thing.

I always wanted to work hard and be independent, so I started working even before I finished college as I have to save money for my startup. Hence, after years of struggle, I finally opened up an institution called “Ark” where I provide students with basic knowledge of subjects which give them nightmares otherwise and then I used my Master degree to open up doors for medical writing.

2. How did you come up with this idea and go about executing it?

I have this keen interest in teaching and writing from the very start and I have seen students inclining towards cramming and they are losing the ground knowledge, I did some research before getting my work started and I have seen that there are better ways to let students know the basics of a particular topic.

I have this confidence in me that I have the potential of letting students know the importance of conceptual knowledge and how we can turn the study which seems a burden to them into an interesting field. I never involved homework and jotting down long paragraphs as a part of my teaching instead practical explanations of topics and fortifying the base is the main method.

3. What has been your biggest challenge that you faced and how did you overcome that?

The sceptical people. There were a bunch of people who kept on telling me as to why I should never go for entrepreneurship as it has more cons than pros, I heard phrases “I am too young for this”, according to me everything has its pros and cons and I have never scared of failures.

If I have to do something different if I have to stand out from the crowd, I have to take the risk and I am happy that the zest in me has never died and I thank myself for always be so stubborn about my dreams. 

4. What do you think are the most important qualities of a successful entrepreneur?
Determination, Quality and flexibility.

5. What are some of the most important factors for running a successful business?

Never compare yourself. This quote you might have heard so many times, but yes, the qualities that you have in you is incomparable, Focus on yourself, correct yourself time to time, take reviews seriously but never imitate anyone. Be confident about your work and always remember that just as you will never come across people with same retinal shapes, in the same manner, you will never be able to meet people with the exact same intensity of talents.

6. What are your tips for the first time and aspiring entrepreneurs?

Be Patient. To produce some Quality, you have to keep on nurturing the product. Never lose consistency. If you miss the uniqueness of your work, you will lose everything. Be serious. Never take your action casually. NEVER.

Be confident. There is no other like you. Marketing- NetWork is NetWorth

7. How can one overcome a hurdle of lack of funds when starting up? 

Investment is for a lifetime. You have to keep funding your business until the end of time. So for someone new into this business, they should definitely work really hard to earn money and then invest their hard-earned money into the business.

Trust me once you do everything on your own, overcome every struggle that you face, be self-dependent, there is no other person prouder than you. The joy you will get after learning everything on your own is unexplainable. The Success is unmatchable.
