The he understood that life is not just a bed of roses, and challenges and hardships are an integral element of Life. Since, his parents could not help me cover my college expenses in full, paying off my student loan has become an important challenge for him. He combined a part time job and full time study to earn his living and his education. He was working as food server/waiter in function, making cotton candies, etc. Even for many days he was not having food. He use to drink only tea throughout the day for his survival. When he worked at Marriage mahal, they use to offer him a food for one time. He use to get wages of 180rupees per day. Many days he use to work for whole night & again morning he will be going to college. On 29th March 2017 he completed his Graduation. Since he had have all abilities he did not get the job. He had applied jobs around 340 Companies over the Globe. Due to Crude Oil Market instability, many people got fired from their current job. Then he borrowed some moneys from his friend & went to Mumbai, Chennai, Vishakhapatnam, Jam Nagar, and Pune in search of Job. Then he came to know that our country is facing drastic unemployment situation. Even his friends did not have job. This made him worried & stressed. One day he read an article of Great man which inspired & motivated me a lot. The Great man name is Dr. Bhagwan Gawai, Chairman & Managing director of CITAX Energy DMCC, UAE. He is titled as “From slum boy to millionaire, a true Global Citizen”. When none of my friends & neighbours helped me, the only god that is Dr. Bhagwan Gawai helped me. He motivated me a lot. One day my thinking was sparked that to create employment and develop our country. Being in this worst financial situation of my family, it was difficult to take decision. Then he thought that if he get hired by someone only his family will be good but what about the remaining unemployed candidates. Finally he decided to become entrepreneur. Only employment opportunities will turn one’s life into happiness. He has huge technical knowledge in Oil and gas Exploration sector & he wants to contribute to the India’s Energy Independence.

Q9 How do you get buy in from senior management and board on your business ideas?

If you have an idea you know will work, but how do you convince other people in your organization to get on board? Getting buy-in from key stakeholders can often be challenging, even if your idea has clear benefits. Innovative ideas can seem unfeasible at first, especially if they entail large-scale changes that will alter the status quo. But by doing your homework and gathering the right evidence to support your thesis, you can make a much more persuasive case and increase your chances of being heard. Using third-party analysis and industry data is essential to making a rational, defensible argument — and that’s where market research can help take your pitch to the next level.
