Depression is something anybody can have. The Modern world is making our life comfort but also giving anxiety and depression to many while they try to adjust into new world that is highly competitive.
When i started my entrepreneurship journey in 2004. It was not easy decision to plunge into making new company after leaving well paid job. Entrepreneurship has up and down moment and i also caught up with depression when things didn’t work but had best time when things were working.
I launched MeriCAR.com in 2008 and it was EARLY MARKET service and i was only who were trying hard to build something innovative that didn’t exist in India. Honestly, it was more tough than easy and also had Golden Moments building passionate team along with having investors like Gautam Sinha and Rajan Anandan (Google MD). Building New Market needs lots of patience and persistence.
I always had Strong Mind that supported me to deal with setbacks in our entrepreneurship. Nowadays i meet many entrepreneurs and mentor them for their startups and felt that majority of them quit just because they cannot manage their own stress and depression. Few lucky like me to have Strong Mind to deal with all kind of situation. Its was strong mind that i persisted long 9 years running a company that is still CHANGE for automotive industry.
Interestingly, around 100 startups are following my vision or trying similar project for unorganized, car mechanic aftermarket.
