Tell us about yourself
I left the corporate world (global business leader worked in 4 different continents) in 2015 to use my technical skills to make a difference in healthcare. I had a death in my family of my dear aunt who was misdiagnosed, and I wanted to help make it easy for people far less fortunate to access best doctors in the world - hence I started YourDoctors.Online (a telemedicine company) back in 2016 which was funded in 2019 and now a profitable venture.
Similarly I started LocateMotion as my son wandered on me and I wanted to track those people with disabilities and monitor their health...and so each of my products have a personal reason.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I measure success and accomplishments with the difference in people's lives we are making with our products...each day is unique and the best days are the ones where we get testimonials for our products like 1600+ google reviews for YourDoctors Online.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
"Entrepreneurship Is Like Jumping Out Of A Plane With No Parachute".
It is a roller coaster ride with never-ending ups and downs so you have to build very strong willpower and be able to cope with it - hence the hardest thing is the ability to develop a coping mechanism to deal with this.
What are the top 3 tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Hard work always pays off, never give up and develop a delayed gratification (the later it comes the better it will be and enjoyable).
