  • @hasmukhjain18 Hasmukh, the first lesson is not to blame anyone for your failure. Cuz by blaming you sympathize yourself and it doesn't yield any result. Time is now to write down where you went wrong & right and tame the naive part of yourself. The world is not fair and you must learn that quickly and act positively to safe guard your career and march forward with control aggression. Wishing you a healthy and successful year ahead my friend.

  • For the last 9 years I have worked with more than 9/10 companies and given them business worth more than 200 crores but every one has failed to give me my rewards or share inspite all of them making huge profits and at end of the day I lost all my precious time & money.
    Mukibhai can you guide me or help me as how should I move forward so that I can also be a successful businessman.

  • It was a honest presentation. Even I thoroughly believe in 'Early failures'.One Failure can teach us what a dozen wins cannot.
