Add compassion to passion and find your capabilities to work for the larger good’, he said. He mentioned that success has no shortcut and one needs to continuously work hard to achieve their goals, no matter how many times things go wrong. ‘You may fail at times; your plans may not work out the way you imagined; but do not give up. Failing doesn’t make you a failure. Giving up and not trying any further does’, he concluded.
Mr. Mudgal mentioned that in the current scenario, it’s important for the CDEs to have the best and updated knowledge and skills to attain profitability and help their business grow. ‘It’s time that we start considering agriculture and handicraft as well-established industries; and help the workers in these sectors learn strategy, business management, entrepreneurship, finances, etc.’, he said.
