You need to find the right path and know how to take people together. SUMMARY

  18. 18. Powerpoint Templates Page 18 KEY LEARNINGS MBA is one way of getting success not the only way of getting success Never Give Up! Be a Leader Self- Confidence Make your Own Identity Hungry to make as much as money
  20. 20. Powerpoint Templates Page 20 READING EXPERIENCE The book starts off the famous story of Prem Ganapathy, Founder of Dosa Plaza. The book then moves on to back-to-back biggies like Kunwer Sachdev(Su-Kam), Ganesh Ram(Veta), Sunita (Fem Care) and many more. All of these stories are gripping and an absolute delight to read.
  21. 21. Powerpoint Templates Page 21 And this book is covering all the things from book store chains, agriculture, dairy, software products and what not! One surprise was introducing stories of entrepreneurs in the field of design & arts towards the end of the book. READING EXPERIENCE
  22. 22. Powerpoint Templates Page 22 I think its one time reading book because I think If anyone read the book with concentration than he/she wil know that hardwork is the only key to success. And after reading the 10-12 stories we can see that theres no more diffrence in the stories. Because as per above Hard work is the only key t success and theres nothing expect that in their lives. Most people start with a failure early in the venture but persistence does pay. But if anyone have passion for something than he/she becomes successful theres no dought in that… READING EXPERIENCE
