What Would You Tell Your Younger Self?
Entrepreneur's New Year’s Guide
We all have our share of regrets. May be it was the wrong choice at college, the wrong early investment, the habit of constantly worrying about the future, or not taking life seriously enough. Of course, we cannot go back in time and change our choices, and why should we? These setbacks are actually valuable lessons in disguise that make us what we are today. We asked six entrepreneurs in the AsiaPacific region to reflect on the lessons learnt, and share the advice they wish to tell their younger selves. Here’s what they had to say.
David Sosna, founder-CEO, Personetics (Japan)
Renee Wang, founder-CEO, Castbox (China)
Phil Zamani, CEO and chairman of AERGO and co-CEO of Blocko (South Korea)
Ruth Hatherley, founder-CEO, Moneycatcha (Australia)
Avneesh Agrawal, CEO, Netradyne (India/US)
Vaibhav Dabhade, founder-CEO, Anchanto (Singapore)
“Quit your job and get into the startup scene as early as possible, and last but not the least, saving some money on the side would go a long way.”
With inputs from Pooja Singh and Nidhi Singh.
