Most people struggle with finding the balance between passion and profitability, but one doesn’t necessarily have to take priority over the other.
Ashwin Bhadri realized the fact that pursuing your own business has the power to unleash you from the restraints of the regular 9 to 5 grind and propel you to your destiny. A bold statement, but the truth nonetheless.
Ashwin says, “Look at the greatest innovators and entrepreneurs; they all have a certain thought process. What separates them from the pack? It’s almost always a blend of 3 traits: hunger, dedication, and an urge to help society. These traits not only help you realize your forte but also help you create innovative products or services that can serve the society well.”
What It Means To Be An Entrepreneur
For Ashwin, there was a predetermined path that he was meant to take: Get educated, then join the family business.
After completing his MBA from the University of Texas, Ashwin did join his family business; a Water Treatment Company where he started the Customer Care department. He soon realized he wasn’t living one of the entrepreneur lives that had inspired him in his college days. Ashwin was wearing an identity that didn’t fit.
Fortunately, Ashwin decided he was going to break the chains of convention. He surged onto the battlefield of business to follow his own path and started his own company, Equinox Labs.
He wanted to truly live the life of an entrepreneur, and for that, he needed to step away from the ‘chosen life’ and focus his energy to inspire others.
Through trial and error, Ashwin learned that risk and reward were his fuel and the ignition always propelled him toward new opportunities in order to succeed on a larger scale.
Now he understands his true nature. He never ignores his gut feeling in the decision-making process. By always seeking and cultivating talent to help him in his journey, Ashwin is creating his real entrepreneur story.
He believes that “Someone who is passionate about what they do and is not in it just for the dough, tends to have a more positive perspective. They are able to overcome challenges eventually, despite initial failures.”
