If failure is inevitable, why try?

I am really excited about this year…this is going to be a special year for all of us. How can it not be? It started with 1-1-11!

I feel especially optimistic this year. Not b’coz I am a lot wiser but also b’coz I have found the support of people who push me forward every time I'm stuck.

Its been a little over a year since I began my entrepreneurial journey and I don’t regret it one bit. Everything you read about entrepreneurship and hear from entrepreneurs is 100% true. But it takes your own experience to drive all those points home. Every entrepreneur will tell you that failure is inevitable. A successful entrepreneur will tell you how they found success in their failure. Learning from your mistakes is important. But the real secret to success is not the lessons themselves, or luck or new opportunities; it is determination and humility.

It is your determination that will push you to get over disappointments when things don’t go according to plan, will force you to innovate to overcome roadblocks and will drive you to find new opportunities when things look bleak.

Humility will let you accept your mistakes, enable you to ask for help when you need it, make you appreciate the opportunities given to you and will never let you take anything for granted. Mostly, it will make you personable.

In my blogs this year, I want to share what I have learnt about food business and entrepreneurship. Not just in abstract, but in specifics. My hope is that it may help others like me. At the very least, it will be a good reminder to me on what I have learnt.
