I am a dentist; a Master’s degree holder and an owner of a PR agency specialised in medical PR. I also I have a lifestyle fashion blog.
What was the hardest part of your journey so far?
The hardest part of my journey was deciding what I actually wanted to do. Leaving the faculty career behind and starting my own business was a tough decision. I was very lucky though to have people who encouraged and believed in me.

Success drives me and ambition motivates me, the sky is my limit.

Successful people motivate me more than books can.

I honestly think you should set your goals and avoid any diversions. Never get affected by negative feedback. Always stay focused.
