"Befearless. Be fearless about criticism, about rejection, about breakingrelationships, about bad reputation. You are venturing out because you havefound a purpose that is above all this. Like one of Angels - Sharad Sharma says“Be the Panga Entrepreneur, don’t be the Dhanda Entrepreneur."

"For awoman entrepreneur to succeed in the competitive business landscape, it isimperative that we become comfortable giving equal weightage to our careers aswe do to our other obligations, roles and responsibilities. And for that weneed to build a thick skin and a strong support system.
Becauseuntil we don’t, we won’t be able to create the ecosystem required to supportthis challenging journey to the top of the corporate ladder. Wewill need to rally the troops and have our backbone structure in place -parents, in-laws, extended family, friends, and yes, husband too. We willneed to stop caring about people who don’t understand, and help the people whowe care about to understand. We will need to make sacrifices andcompromises about being there for everyone all the time and having everythingperfect. And we will need to stop feeling apologetic about it."
Ms.SwatiDayal, co-founder and Executive Director, Sagoon.comWomen who seek equality with men lack ambition. It’s time to make our own identityand discover the new heights of success. The opportunities are same for all ofus; all we have to do is stop seeing us the weaker gender and utilize all wehave to turn those opportunities into success.
