This is the Leadership Journey series on the Choosing Leadership Podcast.

I believe we all have a lot to learn from each other’s stories – of where we started, where we are now, and our successes and struggles on the way. With this series of interviews, my attempt is to give leaders an opportunity to share their stories and for all of us to learn from their generous sharing. If you know a leader whom you would like to see celebrated on the show, please send me a message on LinkedIn with their name.

In the interview, Gaurav shared how entrepreneurship is in his roots, and that has always meant he is comfortable taking risks. We also spoke about the importance of OKRs, the role of intuition in his decision making, and the importance of being present and keeping the balance between work and family.

In the interview, Gaurav shares

  • I decided to help my father expand his business in the US rather than spending ours doing jobs during school break. 
  • Growing up I always saw my family talking about business on dinner table and that had a huge impact on me, how I looked at life and at business. 
  • Our biggest challenge as a company would be trying to emerge as a mature player in this space that we are creating.
  • As an entrepreneur, sometimes you get so absorbed with the passion of your business that you tend to ignore or miss on things which are beautiful and which will not come back in your life again.
