My family belongs to the poorer section of society where people struggled every day to make ends meet. But my parents never let me feel left out, they worked hard to provide me good education and everything I always needed But in 2007, I have witnessed the struggles of my family when my father had to sell their under-construction House because of lack of funds. No-one helped them out during such troubling times and they were left to fend for themselves. This made me realize the importance of money and having emergency funds for unforeseen incidents like these.
I could resonate this with my life. It was just 17 when I started my first online business. just to earn some extra income to fulfil my desire. While as a child, I never thought to be an entrepreneur. When I started my venture I did not know any thigh about the business what to do and how to do it but constant learning and working with brand and professional it help to grow and scale up my Bussiness.

After completing school, along with a friend, I opened an Instagram business. That was my first business and after 6 months, I got my first client- a traditional marketing campaign for an ice cream shop based out of Indore. I decided to learn more about marketing and advertising while pursuing my undergraduate degree. In the beginning, my partners and I were in charge of all aspects of the company, including sales, accounts, operations, dealing with vendors, and setting it up. I didn’t have any knowledge, experience, or mentorship to begin with. But I think if you have that spark within you, you can do it. Being the youngest member, it was a challenge to work with vendors and clients. While at the start, I never took a single rupee as salary but kept on reinvesting profit to grow my company.

The best time to start a business is in your college days because you have ample time to experiment, you have no obligations or liability, and you are full of energy.
When you finish high school and enrol in a college for further studies, a new chapter in your life begins. You meet so many new people from so many different backgrounds. The whole trip is an icebreaker. You must discuss how each other makes money from their unique perspective. New thighs happen around the world.
