How do you learn in your life and what is your biggest dream?
Life in itself is a lesson. Every day brings with it new challenges, opportunities, experience and wisdom. Having said that, I feel the most that one can learn from is failure, and one should always see it as an opportunity to try something new, something different, rather than worry about it. Introspection, on a regular basis, is important to correct the course of one’s progress.
There is no one big dream. My motto in life is to keep adding value in whatever way that I can, with each passing day.
Tell me about when you failed. How did you overcome?
I don’t see failure as a hindrance to progress. I consider it a stepping stone to success, with each failure teaching me more than success. Over-coming a failure needs understanding of the reasons for the same, understanding what can be done differently, and on top of it appreciation for chance.
What was your journey like to get where you are?
It has been a very exciting journey for me and my whole team. We have come a long way, often exceeding our quarterly targets. There is a culture of innovation in the company, and this is one of the most satisfying feelings for me. Company will continue to grow, sometimes exceeding its expectations and sometimes falling short on the targets, but the culture which it gives birth to always remains the same.
Tell me how you’ve approached change.
Change is inherent to work and life alike. It is change, which challenges the status quo to grow, develop and transform in line with the future. In fact, one of our mottos is to bring change to the way industries manage their operations and instil the use of technology in day-to-day operations. Consequently, we, at AxesTrack, have a culture of welcoming change. It helps us in keeping updated and motivated.
What was the most difficult lesson you have learned as an entrepreneur?
There are many lessons that one can learn from being an entrepreneur. Not all of them are work related, some lessons add value to your personal life as well. Even then, the most important lesson I would say was the importance of passion in a start-up. It takes a lot of experience, innovation, team-work, networking and capital to build a start-up successfully, but the most important ingredient of a successful story is passion. It is natural for the founders to have passion, but it is equally important to imbibe that in every employee of the company. AxesTrack has come a long way to be able to say that every member of the company is as passionate as the founders. With the free and open culture at AxesTrack since its inception, I must admit, this was not the most difficult lesson, but the most interesting one.
