On being an Entrepreneur

“Passion, creativity, and resilience are the most crucial skills in business. If you’ve got those, you’re ready to embark on the journey.” -Jo Malone, Founder of Jo Malone

Have you been pondering on an Idea and don’t know where to start?

Do you want to make a change to your working style and want to know about being an Entrepreneur?

Are you craving to be a Solopreneur?

Do you find yourself passionate about something and you want to make a difference to the world and don’t know where to begin?

We all want to make a difference in some way- either to the way we work or to bring about a change with a passionate idea or to better the lives of people in some way or the other. But due to lack of guidance or overwhelming commitments or lack of conviction we fail to take the plunge!

Well, being an Entrepreneur is possible and certainly not Impossible!

I quit my job as a Human Resource professional in early 2015 and wanted to explore avenues in Writing. I took to traveling and delved into Photography. Though I had a portfolio of my Published works and a Coffee Table Book on Landscape photography, I was still struggling to make money consistently and was wondering on the avenues to explore.

Well, I ended up being a Solopreneur, at the moment where I was still figuring out what to do and how to earn my living. The opportunities just came to me and even before I could analyse the pros and cons of getting into a freelancing gig-Social Media Marketing, I had already started on it. The best part of this experience was, I was open to try out various genres and learning skills over the years and that gave me the confidence to take the plunge. Moreover, I learnt on the job and there were a whole lot of things which were new to me and it helped me to learn and grow. A teaching opportunity came by which all the more helped me to learn and grow my business.

It has been quite an adventure and this process of exploring has made me a tad bit wiser, resilient and an ardent learner of any skills.
