One mistake you believe every individual must avoid writing the book.
Always maintain a simple flow of sentences. Using jargons or complex words may make reading difficult. After all, your book should be a pleasant read.
What are your views and opinions towards the ambiguous need to promote women entrepreneurship and women empowerment in India?
Women deserve equal respect and that is not only due to financial independence. The psyche of people should change as in a man and a woman should receive equal respect. Entrepreneurship gives a scope to exhibit your talent that is self-rewarding, rather than helping someone else benefit due to your specialization. However, a sound plan is the perfect tool to achieve success in entrepreneurship. If you have the risk-taking ability and a unique idea, every individual must try to become an entrepreneur.
