Fulfilling Dreams: Ravi Shanker Mishra’s Journey to Empower the Unemployed
Build something which is still needed for the general public and you can grow by fulfilling someone’s needs
1. Tell us more about your company and your journey.
I have started my journey to start a well settled organisation who can stand with their employees and I have built a platform where all the unemployed youths and women of our nations can be empowered.
To find such a business I have tried different business ideas which have not succeeded in the past. Then I came up with a business model where we understand the financial needs of the society and how to create employment through fulfilling the needs of the society.
2. How did you come up with this idea and go about executing it?
I visited a CA once for the GST registration of my company. I found a small business man who doesn’t have Rs.1500 to register himself in GST as he can’t afford it. I then found 63 million small businessmen who deal in daily goods but can’t afford CA’s because it’s too costly for them.
My mind is clear at the same time to get a business for those who are Unemployed youth and to give this society a cost friendly financial center (JAN GST KENDRA) powered by Aarshree Enterprise with it’s Head office at DLF Gurgaon.
