As entrepreneurs, we have to constantly experiment and create new space for innovation. You have your own blue ocean to swim. But, on the other hand, timing and luck plays a major role in an entrepreneur's life. Entrepreneur is a big term that craves for ample of risk taking abilities. We create manpower, we create business, we create brand; but one small mistake can take that all away with no time. The days of failure and vagabond never end. I feel it’s a fantastic opportunity to explore the skills within one self.

Donning the cap of an entrepreneur is a highly demanding job. You work round the clock and have to meet everyone’s expectation, be it your family or friends or even employees. While you have free will to work, you, on the other hand, also have to work without relying on others, as the set up is entirely yours. GTC is my baby, so it’s my responsibility to feed it food.
