The last year has been a crazy roller coaster ride and I have learnt a lot through it!

Here are my Top 5 lessons learnt in starting & running a new business in India.

1. Slow down 

Believe it or not the rest of the world is not interested nor motivated to do things as fast as you.

2. Don’t believe anyone

Whether its a vendor or the courier company, don’t believe them when they say they will do something. Chase them, stalk them, hound them, breath your last living breath down their necks until its done.

3. Expect the unexpected

Which also means don’t expect the expected! This is India, anything can happen. And always have a plan B, C and D.

4. Love your customers

Your biggest supporters are your customers. Anyone else is just being nice, which of course is nice.

5. Jugaad

If you want to survive, you need to know someone who knows someone who knows someone. Its the only way. Its the Indian way.

 

So there you have it, my top 5 lessons after having spent the last 12 months in creating partnerships, setting up the platform, forming alliances, hiring people, dealing with administrative duties & accounts… all in all dealing with things relating to every nook and cranny, every bit and byte, every fibre of this business.

Here’s to a super awesome Year 2!
