Story of HOMETOWN.
In every successful startup, there are several backend fights between the founders, pushing each other to achieve milestones.
Glad to have such an incredible person in team. Thank you Sidra.
First time entrepreneurs or young one like me, or most of us often ask this question to themselves, and people we meet around.
In the picture above is ‘Sharo‘ who for the first time is going to start her company.
And when she puts her questions before people who claim to have good experience in business. They answer it like this.
Or worse, here she is again:
In this picture, she wants to learn what possible challenges, opportunities, and environment she will encounter on the road of entrepreneurship. Or in other words what advice you have for someone who’s thinking to cross the wall.
For answers, she goes to Tom, Ravi and David, all three of them have some experience in their fields.
Their answers are: TREES, MOUNTAINS and WATER.
Which means, Tom thinks she should learn how to survive in forests.
While Ravi believes, she must learn mountain climbing and how to survive in extreme hot and cold temprature.
And David recommends to focus on swimming and boating, which can help her to cross streams and rivers on her way.
What you think? What should she learn? Three of these skills, or every possible thing she can learn?
Here is what I think.
As a human or more specifically as an entrepreneur, we never know what challenges we shall have behind the wall of our comfortzone. And successful people have this one habit, they go behind the wall with a problem solving mindset and face everything on the way.
They do not assume specific environment, conditions, or challenges. Though each of them is jack of some trades, and master of one or two.
But this is their mindset which matters the most.
Today, I briefly talked with my team that, do not assume that all the challenges and opportunties will be the same as we percieve them now. Things are changing all the time, so does the challenges and opportunities which it brings.
Just make sure, you’ve allingned yourself well with the changes and you have this confidence that you shall solve every problem which would come between you and your destination.
Got it! Have problem solving mind? Oh WOW!
