Bangalore: Making a decision is one of the most powerful acts for inspiring confidence in entrepreneurs. Yet many businessmen take it lightly. Some decide not to decide, while others simply keep procrastinating. The business world has proved always that a great decision at a great time defines the success for the company. Though, many of the decisions don’t prove to be helpful, but there are many examples which show that a small yet powerful decision changed the fortune of the company. Let us take a look at some of them:

10. Suhas Gopinath: "Why should I sell my baby?"

Gopinath started a software company at an age when most of the people are stuck on deciding which subjects to study in the next class. At a tender age of 14, he got listed in the Limca Book of Records as the World’s Youngest Chief Executive.

Today Gopinath is 26 and is the CEO of Globals Inc. - A world-class business with over 500 employees.

Most Decisive Moment: In 2005, Gopinath took a big decision which defined his entrepreneurial journey. An investment firm from Houston, Texas offered him $100 million for a majority stake in Globals. After months of discussion, he refused saying, “Why should I sell my baby?”

The same year he was the youngest among the 175 recipients of Karnataka's Rajyotsava Award.

Later in November 2008, he was invited to represent the World Bank's ICT Leadership Roundtable for adopting ICT in Africa to increase employability and fostering ICT skills in students from these countries.
