An associate of "All Ladies League", the "Women Economic Forum" (WEF), a six-day global conference with a theme of "Women: Creating, Innovating, Understanding and Driving the Future" has started on Monday (8th May) in Delhi at Pullman Hotel, New Delhi and will continue till 13 May 2017.
In the session of 'The 3T's of Entrepreneurship & Why They Matter the Most', Chandni Dassani - Entrepreneur, Founder and CEO at Etasaa (a home decor and lifestyle brand), shared her views and insights about entrepreneurship and what factors are necessary for running a business successfully.
She said, "Entrepreneurs are game-changers, but knowing when to intelligently take risks and when to step back is key to scaling your success. You really can't run a successful business if you haven't learnt from your failures, mistakes and growth! There ought to be 3T's in your journey that will ensure that your endeavours succeed. They are Trends, Talent & Team and without them you're nothing."
The trend is 'what will come tomorrow' and solve the actual problem of people. Talent is the skill that someone naturally has to do something. It is an ability that someone is born with. And the team is a group of players who come together to achieve a common goal.
If you don't have good people, you can't do good things. So invest in good people, not in good things, added Chandni.
She also highlighted that timing is an important factor in entrepreneurship. If you have 3T's but time is not right for your business, you will fail. Entrepreneurship is about to behaving at a right time.
She further added that 'don't go without a plan, do a proper market research, make a proper plan, think about a right time, then launch your idea with a great enthusiasm. You should be very positive to reach a certain level. Your vision and mission should be very clear. If your plan one is not working then rethink and find out different ways to make that happen.
At the end, she asked everyone about the factors necessary for entrepreneurship and everyone shared their own ideas and success stories that made them feel proud.
