Confessions of an entrepreneur

Over two+ years of my journey after starting Nurture Talent Academy, I have a few confessions to make and share with the readers:

* I talk more with my employees than with my wife. Though my wife does not mind it, it’s a little strange that I give less time to her than anyone else in the world.

* My employees give me more time than the time they spend with their girlfriend/boyfriend — yes the alternate hypothesis to point 1 is also true!

* We put our life in our startup, and no pleasure in the world can compare with a customer’s positive feedback.

* Negative feedback from customers does hurt us, specially when we put our life into our tasks!

* Competitors do not matter — we don’t get or feel hurt if anything happens; but trust matters and it hurts when anyone breaks it including our word to others.

* There is no rest. The first month of our launch was hectic, so we didn’t sleep (only enough to keep alive). Now two years later, it’s the same. Many people feel entrepreneurs take rest after achieving something big, but that’s a big myth. I have come across hundreds of other entrepreneurs who have no holidays — it’s just another day

at work.

* Business is tough (not that anyone ever said it was easy), but you have to play with rules and at the same time, try to break them plus make new ones.

* I have not come across a business that made over `1 crore revenue in the first year. All business plans projecting otherwise seem false to me.

* I have not come across a business that made profits in the first year of operations!

* I have seen so many articles that focus on number 10, so I included this confession. Lessons don’t come in even numbers — it’s just a marketing gimmick or a clever headline. Do not believe them, just move forward with your startup journey.

Qualities of an entrepreneur

At various forums we get this question — what are the qualities of an entrepreneur? Many students wish to know if they really have it in them to be an entrepreneur or not. Here’s a checklist.


Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli started together at the same time in their cricketing careers. Today, Sachin is God and Vinod is no longer in the limelight. As an entrepreneur, it is important to have passion and sustain it for years, often decades. Talent is a pre-requisite but it does not end there — it begins there.


I have seen hundreds of people starting with full enthusiasm, only to give up two-three months later. It is okay to change ideas and plans and move on to something new, but entrepreneurship requires lots of energy.


How many times have you seen a product or business and wished you had done it? The BIG difference between an entrepreneur and any other person is action — real entrepreneurs DO! It is important to think, plan, strategise, study and analyse but after all this you have to act.


An entrepreneur is like a child, always keeping his/her eyes and ears open for new ideas, information and knowledge. It is important to keep questioning current systems and processes, else how will the future evolve? For instance, think about what companies will not be there in 2020 and work backwards to create alternatives.


If you can own up to your responsibilities, you are on the right track to entrepreneurship. There are people sleeping, watching movies, etc, instead of organising events, visiting new towns, et al. What is your favourite activity?

We wish more and more individuals would identify their personal potential and venture out to succeed in the world of entrepreneurship

Entrepreneur networks

Many aspiring entrepreneurs face trouble in meeting other like-minded people. There are various organisations and industry bodies, which support and encourage entrepreneurship in India. It may be helpful to explore the offerings for entrepreneurs’ benefits.

It also organises annual startup exhibitions to give a platform to new ventures.

Open Coffee Club

It is an informal group of entrepreneurs and professionals who come together on a monthly basis to network with each other for common goals. Most events have a central theme to drive the discussions and interactions. It is also well supported by Google groups, where all members contribute actively to solve common issues faced by each other.
