It is common to hear success stories of entrepreneurs becoming millionaires overnight. But what people don’t tell you is the tireless nights, multiple failures and huge risks they took.
It is very rare to find successful entrepreneurs who suddenly decided to quit their job and start a business next day. Working for yourself requires a significant change in mindset from working as an employee to working as an entrepreneur.
I recently met Ankur, a senior vice-president in a reputed MNC at Gurugram. After graduating from prestigious IIT Kharagpur in 2002, he joined XYZ, an analytics firm started by some IITians. After 6 years, XYZ was acquired by ABC. It has been 16 years and he is still working in his first company.
I also know Nikhil who graduated from a normal college, but he kept switching jobs after each 3-4 years. Today he has more than 15 years of experience. In his 6th job, he has reached till VP-level.
I had a friend in my college. She is now a research scientist in Paris. It has been 2 years since we passed out from college. Most of my friends are just doing jobs, but she is living her dream life with a dream job. Do you know what does it take to get a job of your dreams?
Without going to those “tips”, let me explain how did my friend get a dream job in Paris after passing out from a normal engineering college in India.
