What was your inspiration behind venturing into the field of consultancy?
My family is the first source of my inspiration. Next, my mentor and Guru, Mr Gaurang Gupta, owner at Gumpro Chem Kalol Pvt. Ltd has recognised my managerial qualities and encourage and supported me in becoming an entrepreneur.
Also, during the five years tenure at my previous company, I had worked hard, learned everything, and developed new skills. It was the foundation of my becoming a full-fledged consultant, and I always be grateful and thankful to my previous Organizations as well as Colleagues/Customers/Guardians/CED Gujarat to make my journey extremely easy and beautiful!
