His failures have guided him to success, he has been a patient learner,analyzing the reasons for the fall and in the process learn to overcome.
On being asked about his journey, Anjay shares that his journey was not as easy as it looks like. It felt like an exam to him, where we tense up and work extremely hard before sitting for the exam but once we are done it feels like it wasn’t that hard of a task. He has worked hard to achieve the status he as today for several years now while keeping humbleness intact. As an entrepreneur the most difficult lesson I learned was to ensure regulatory compliance in time, ensuring salary and taxes are paid in time.
Anjay lastly added, “Change is part and parcel of life if there is one thing that’s constant its change. With the change, there is risk involved and with risk there are opportunities. It is important to overcome the risk when changes happen to yield the benefits.”
