Selected article from The economic Times on Business, start ups and entrepreneurship

Hello friends,

Reading is a good habit and definitely it brings positive changes within us. Our thinking, behaviour and decision making process is largely shaped by the material we read.

Today, through this blog post I am providing few of the most important materials which I liked. It is inspirational for all and boost morale too.

There are some who dream big...and others who dare to make those dreams come true. Venturing into a start-up is never a cake walk, and one has to have the ability to cope with the various ups and downs that the journey entails. Yet, many emerge with enterprises that go on to become household names.

While browsing through The Economic Times, I read this article. It is about first generation entrepreneur who started with different ideas, different sectors. From Zomato to Karbon to Bhartiya to Intex, it has many inspirational stories to tell. It took them several years but business always take time to ripe the benefit.

It is story of Reema Mukherjee of Smergers who quit Barclays to start own venture, Kaushik Mukherjee (he started venture, failed, joined corporate, left and again started own venture so I do not agree completely in the category of the people who decline the offer, it is more about satisfaction).
