Q: Passion, Persistence and Entrepreneurship describe you on your website. We know the Entrepreneur in you. Introduce the persistent and passionate side of yours.
Rakesh: Persistence is only possible if you are passionate about something you want to do in your life. You celebrate when you touch even a small bit of success and laugh and learn from mistakes when you fail, but you never stop.
I have been known for exploring an unproven idea for the unorganized car aftermarket for eight years. I went through the journey of passion and pivoted business models to research and further to keep it sustainable. Never Stop. Live.
Q: Never let success get to your head. Never let failure get to your heart.
Rakesh: Failures are just unexpected events, so, if you never stop, you are always successful. Head and heart keep you in the balance to live your life happily. The real success gets into your heart and stays there!
Q: With this book, you have also attached a noble cause. Share your vision for the cause with us.
Rakesh: My purpose of writing a book was to give the students, the entrepreneurs & startups, something that was really resourceful for them. I also wanted to give back to the society.
My non-profit group started in Feb 2015 as an informal group. The people who read my book became members and I named it as IWF “I want to fly.” All the members joined hands to form the “IWF Foundation” for a social cause to support unprivileged kids. The purpose was to fundraise for smaller schools. Anybody can contribute to IWF!
