My self Ankur Mishra, Sorry let me correct, I am Ankur Mishra, here I am pitching my failure story.
Just read : “Start-ups don’t die, they commit suicide. In other words, 90 percent of start-ups fail because the founders get bored, discouraged, or something else, and they move on to other things, not because of some catastrophe. No matter how dark it is today, things will always better tomorrow.” ~ Justin Kan.
Example : MySelf. 😛
My startups : Go4Every in Lucknow-Kanpur and ForeanTech in Delhi-NCR but both are not in right path or you can say till now both are not rich. Word ‘Rich’ is the success definition of any Startup.
A very experienced Sir says: ‘Be Rich not Right’. This is a fact of every successful startup.
Other issue which I faced was my team. I was wrong with my team and my team was also wrong with company, but think about it : when you leave your team to execute on their own, you’ll see where all the holes in your company are, and then you can work on patching them. You should be able to leave your company for a few weeks without them needing you.
……And there are so many issues behind my failure, but I experienced good failure is a great way to learn provided you stick with it and never, ever give up.
Nothing is Rocket Science, “Starting a startup is not easy and there will always be people who tell you that something is impossible. Don’t listen. Now, I never took no for an answer.! “
Easy to say, less easy to do:
Do What You Love:
It’s a common saying, but vitally important. The more you enjoy your job, the easier it is to work, and that’s important, especially when starting up your own company. You will be amazed at the amount of time and energy it will take to make your company successful.
Don’t Be Afraid:
If you have an idea, do it. When you’re in your 20s or 30s, that’s the time where you can be aggressive and be a risk-taker. That’s the beauty of youth.
Don’t Manage Angry :
Be as stern as you need to be, but nothing good comes from you bringing your lack of emotional control into the work.
Do Your Homework:
Be really clear about the assumptions you’re making about the business you’re going into, and check those assumptions as quickly as you can whether it’s building a prototype and testing it with people, or just talking to other people in the industry.
Educate yourself on whatever you’re going into. If you don’t know what you’re doing, people will take advantage of you. Exercise your right to negotiate, especially as a woman; don’t be afraid to walk away from an opportunity that you don’t think is right for you; and be realistic about your budget. Figure out how much you need to save and then try to keep yourself on a strict budget.
Do what you know… and love! It will resonate with your customers, employees, and potential investors. And make all the hard work worthwhile.
