Journey as a business head
Nowadays starting a business model is not at all a difficult job, all you need is investment from your firm and a unique idea. However, what differentiates between the model fail miserably and flourish for years is persistent and speed. In my current role as a business head at Pentagon System and Services Pvt Ltd, I have been working on making the multi-cloud journey of our customers seamless and helping them transform digitally. In my journey, I have always learned that it’s a great team that makes the business successful. If you are able to build a great team around you, plan and strategize and find a mentor to look at, you can be a successful business owner. “Do what you love and love what you do” sounds cliché, but it’s the rule for success. There has not been a single day where I woke up and felt like not working for the day.

Role model
The entrepreneur I most look up to is Steve Jobs. I think what he had created with Apple is tremendous, the brand, great quality, innovations. Business should always mean the empowerment of individuals, solving a problem and giving something unique to the world at the same time. I don’t think anyone can beat him in that.
And, somebody who is making an enormous difference in the society outside the tech industry, I would say Narendra Modi. Coming from a humble background and working as a CEO for the biggest democracy with humility is what makes him stand out among world leaders. The way he works as an administrator, his leadership quality is really inspiring.

Key achievements
I think building a great team is one of my key achievements. Besides, winning the trust and confidence of clients with an exponential growth rate is also an achievement for me. Giving back to the society is everyone’s duty and responsibility. I always feel good that I am doing my best towards the same.

Work-life balance
Work-life balance is very important, and punctuality is the right key for it. I think, for work-life balance giving time to everything and everyone that is important and is the best way you can have a good life. I always try to sort things according to priority, keep fewer things for follow up, be it personal or professional. It helps to work on new innovation and giving time to near and dears. Also, time management is an important factor. If you know how to manage your time properly you can do all your work with ease.

Women in IT – a rare breed?
If you say women used to be a rare breed in IT, it would be true. In the current time, women are working in key positions for many tech giants. Look at IBM, SpaceX, Oracle, Microsoft and Apple retail, Facebook for example. I believe it’s the dedication, intelligence and right opportunity that makes the best of an individual. There was a time when only a few women used to be part of technology and academic ecosystem, now we are not only a part of but leading the technology revolution in many aspects. The scenario has changed and changing rapidly. In all the sectors including IT, the condition of women is changing, and they are successfully making their place everywhere.

Life ahead
In the future, I am looking forward to contributing to the industry through problem-solving solutions for growth and expansion. And, contributing to the society at both the individual and organisational level is also an important aspect for me. I would love to be the part of a system for upgrading and updating the women, child development as well as the education sector. I think updating women is very important as it can help them in being successful.
