Adversities give rise to opportunities

I left my job in 2019 and began working on my business of manufacturing edible oil. I faced a lot of obstacles. It is partially financed by my parents.

Irresponsible land lord, faulty electricity work, wall lizards crawling on the walls, COVID-19, and cyclone ‘Nisarga’, have resulted in monetary loss of around ₹50k. There were frequent quarrels with parents. We even decided to sell the machine in scrap! Cyclone blew off the roof ventilator and machine was partially wet.

But something began to dawn on me and I realised that I shouldn’t give up and face it. That’s what entrepreneurship is, isn’t it? Raw material is not available in the market, but I’m working on assembling the machine. I have to fix it on my own. Well-known brand Balaji Wafers owner Chandubhai Virani repaired the machines on his own, because engineers charged too much for fixing. I am in the same situation and his story resonates with mine, I’m grateful for that.

The more problems I face now, the more strong I become. I’ll keep you updated with my entrepreneurship journey.

Hi there! I am a health-tech blogger, an average book reader, food and nutrition enthusiast, and sales professional. Copywriting is the think that drives me. I can make the print on 'Buy' button fade away. No matter whether you are seller, buyer, performer, affiliate marketer, Amazon seller or an astronaut, you need to advertise with persuasion to make money. Power in words and their structuring can do wonders to make your inventory empty. 'Show me your library, and I will tell you what kind of person you are' is damn true. Books give you direction to your final goal. I read atleast 3-4 books per year. I'm here only because of the books. What is the purpose of daily life without proper food and nutrition? Health is wealth. Steve Jobs said that 'What is the use to be the richest person in coffin?'. Nobody wants to spend earned money in hospital bills. I make valuable content to food habits. I'm a rockstar on Quora! I love the art of advertising. I am creating a personal brand, you can check my IG. I have 2 years of sales experience. I sold fruit syrups to retailers, fruit juice at kiosk, mobile applications and softwares to hospitals, medicines to doctors and pharmacies and, Point of Sales machine to merchants. Sales taught me customer mindset, objection handling and most important, facing rejection. I had seen bad days and good days. Those days were worth my struggle. I will share my genuine opinions on health-tech industry.
