Almost all the members of family prefers to work. This led them to hunt for an ease to manage home. I understood the exact set of requirements where I could do some help to such new comers to our society.”

However, Singhal started offering a phone based utility service to about 100 households in Faridabad area and Gurgaon area.

Start your own internet presence or if possible try to innovate with the use of internet socio networking sites.

Wadhawa also added, “One thing, always to be kept in mind that never ignore or rule out any innovative idea. Ideas could pop in front of the entrepreneur from anywhere. It could be competitor, employee or even some outsider who has nothing to do with our business.”
