Vikesh Shah: Challenging times are the best to explore more business opportunities.

Vikesh shah, founder of 99 Pancakes, in conversation with Prittle Prattle

Every business has its ups and downs. Successful companies are those that are managed well during trying times. You only fail when you give up and accept failure. Otherwise, people who keep trying and are persistent are bound to succeed.

When things are not moving your way with funds, you can do the following few things to manage it:

Don’t try to reduce costs and cut down expenses that will impact your business. Instead, it would help if you focused more on sales to get numbers rolling with more cost-effective ways to help your finances. Define multiple smaller targets to reach bigger goals.

Talk to your team. Brainstorm ideas and make them understand the situation. Draw a roadmap to control cost. Most of the time, great ideas come from unexpected people. So, talk more. Don’t shy away.

During a difficult phase, stay calm and be happy, thinking about the good times that will be knocking on the door soon, and during good times, remember to stay grounded and set your eyes on the next goal.
