Challenges You MUST Overcome To Start A Business
Abhishek Dubey always wanted to pursue entrepreneurship. He was always excited to follow his passion, pursue his dream and do something for the people of this great nation. Aspiring to become a Social Entrepreneur, he went on to start his own business in the second year of college itself, giving it the name ‘Muskaan Dreams”. But little did he know what challenges awaited him on the journey to starting and running a business.
Initially, his father was unable to get the idea of his son starting a business. Moreover, the term Social Entrepreneurship was completely alien to him. Worried that his son is going on the wrong path due to doing his own business, he gave Abhishek an ultimatum to choose between him and his business.
