The thought of being your own boss with your own business might sound appealing, but it involves a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. Many more new businesses fail than succeed, making entrepreneurship a very tough gig. At the same time, high risk can yield high rewards. This is the case with Abhishek Agrawal, a fitness guru and fashion influencer.
With his striking looks and physique, it is no surprise that Abhishek found himself in an image-oriented lifestyle. Yet he credits his success with hard work, and a master’s degree in Management from the prestigious University of Westminster gave him an even greater advantage to growing his career.
While being an entrepreneur certainly has its unique challenges, it also has some amazing rewards. Abhishek has insight on both sides of the coin and even some self-care tips to get through the best of times and worst of times.
Let’s be brutally honest and start with the risks. Entrepreneurship might be glamorous, but it is very hard work. We’re talking about putting up your own money, sporadic income, long hours, questionable security, and a lot of tension. If you are starting up a company and dealing with these stressors, take Abhishek’s advice and perform exercises for your physical and mental health. After all, your mindset could very well be the make it or break it for your fledgling business. Knowing this, make self-care mandatory.
Now let’s move to the rewards. If you can make it through the tough beginning stages of running your own company, the horizon is just around the corner. You can look forward to things like flexibility (being your own boss), life satisfaction, new skills, a solid salary, and making an impact in your field and/or to your employees.
Abhishek thrives on these creative challenges and strives to build long-term relationships with each of his clients. These relationships are another reward of entrepreneurship as long-term clients can be the lifeblood of a business. An active social media presence also boosts his business prowess as this gains him even more campaigns and assignments.
Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart, but Abhishek has embraced and even capitalized on this adventurous area of business. A love of fashion and fitness combined with a formidable education have made him a force to be reckoned with as he overcame challenges to reap substantial rewards.
