According to you, which are the 5 tricks which can instantly boost the productivity of an entrepreneur?

Ability to laser focus, knowing when you messed up, being able to fail and get back up without feeling sorry, evaluating progress weekly, keeping your eye on the goal at all times.

At the nascent stage of a company, which are the KPI to lookout for?

What are they doing, how are they impacting their industry, do they have the infrastructure behind them to do what they want to do?

Can you share a few resources which you use for team management? What are the essentials you look into before hiring people to come on board?

We look at character, what is the person like, what is their behavior like, how do they work in stressful situations, how do they solve problems, can they adapt? Can they learn fast? Do they know what they don’t know and do they know how to learn what they don’t know?

What is your message for fellow entrepreneurs?

Don’t quit, learn, grow, become the entrepreneur you wanted to when you started, when you are scared know you will be okay if you continue to push and give everything you have, focus on solving problems both short term AND long term. Don’t give in to what people want you to do when things aren’t working like you planned.
