The year 2020 hasn’t been easy for everyone. Due to global pandemic and lockdown, a lot of business suffered. But several people also started their own venture and decided to make a better life for themselves and for others. One such person was Jiten Thakkar. In the year 2020, Jiten started ‘Local Forever’.
Jiten Thakkar has a sharp mind and a big vision that helped him start a venture last year. With Local Forever, he has been helping small offline businesses to stay in the game. Not every company gets promoted on the internet which is a medium for a vast customer base. So, to make the reach better, Jiten provides them with timely services.
As impressive as it sounds, businessman & consultant Jiten Thakkar’s business wasn’t a cakewalk. He had his struggles and challenges that he had to overcome. Jiten is a person who believes in positive thinking. So he kept Motivating himself at every stage and kept growing. About the challenges he faced and how he dealt with them, Jiten Thakkar shares, “The original challenges included partnering with local sources, making a fully-featured platform ready to launch in a short period along with a workable pricing strategy. Our innovative model enables businesses to enroll in monthly subscription plans without any upfront deposit. This was launched to ensure that small businesses regain their momentum in a short time.”
Jiten Thakkar also has an important message for aspiring entrepreneurs. He says, “My top advice for someone looking to start their own business or expand their existing business is to take “ACT NOW”. The thought should be to move away from the planning and start executing their idea instead of waiting for the right time or focussing on perfection. No Idea unless implemented, is successful.”
“Positive approach towards the unwanted situation is very critical. It gives you the hope to find the solution to come out of the situation and look beyond the problems. Anyone who is looking to work with freedom of thoughts and expression must consider the entrepreneurial route. It has its perks and set of challenges like every other thing. Your persistence in business will depend on how passionate you are with it, that will give you the strength to keep going and think right even in challenging times”, says Thakkar.
