Risks involved in business and way of addressing

There are hardly any risks in our business as at each
and every point the Customer is actively involved, once in a blue moon a
delivery schedule may be affected but can be solved through mutual discussion
and perusal.

Most critical decision

Critical decision was Leaving cushy bank
job and start my own Enterprise.I dared to dream, put prose and cons of
individual enterprise, knew that the path ahead would be thorny, I would come
across lots of pits & falls etc, my conscious told me not to worry, the
inner voice was telling me to go ahead and face the situation and with lots of
courage and determination I went ahead and reached the position of a successful
entrepreneur.
