“Entrepreneurship can be a challenging and long journey for many people. Some get lucky and succeed the first time. For me, that wasn't the case. Growing up in a Marwadi family where getting into the family business and carrying on the legacy was the only option for the successors, I never thought of becoming an entrepreneur. I never objected to it nor went against my family. The idea of becoming an entrepreneur came to me quite abruptly. After getting into the family business, I realised that I wasn't getting the opportunity to tap into my talents properly. It was then that I decided I wanted to start something of my own and burst my bubble. I wouldn't say I liked the feeling of having everything presented to me on a silver platter. I wanted to prove myself and do all the fantastic things I knew I was capable of in the back of my mind. One of them was creating my firm.Sometimes innovation can be pretty straightforward. I wanted to offer people what I felt was long forgotten. I decided to provide notepads, diaries, and planners who are not only helpful but also creative. Seeing individuals attend meetings and take notes digitally, as opposed to me writing things down in my diary, made me rethink the present era of digitalisation. My goal with this enterprise was to be more conventional and bring back the old classic pen and paper days, a collection celebrating the art of putting pen to paper. The biggest challenge I faced was convincing my family to let me step aside and start my firm. But I knew what I was doing and believed in myself. Overcoming them was a delight for sure, and every time there was a feather in my cap, I felt as though I made my family proud. I was too terrified to leave my shell and start anything on my own, but I couldn't live my life worrying about what might have occurred. Rather than simply predicting the future, I believe in living it."
