How we started pickyourplate ?
So it was time to start my own venture and here Pickyourplate happened. I thought of problems what I faced in Pune as a student for homemade food so I started to solve homemade food issue but very fortunately on very first 10 days we got zero orders. Though it was quite dilemma period but after we diversify our business model in targeting outskirts area of places where big food delivery doesn’t reach .We reached there with very less logistics cost and now we are operating in Pune and soon planning to expand. Now we are serving good customer amount in pune.During all this the most important thing which motivates the entrepreneur to succeed is the journey which we live as entrepreneur full of struggles ups and down etc . The most important I have learned various aspects of business from marketing to managing finances to legal work.
Startup taught me what I could not have learned in job life. It taught me that there is cost behind everything. Until and unless we will be bearing this cost we won’t be knowing the value behind the work.
In office when employees are not able to meet deadline they don’t know what the cost boss needs to bear for that. So business taught me that nothing comes for free. There is cost behind everything so value your work and value the time.
I am 21 and I started earning when I was 19 and was in my college pursuing graduation. So I was to go to events and work for a day or two and I even used to organise some events but I found these things can’t go on long term basis. I need to find some other way, so I started looking for job through my college interview process but fortunately I was rejected from every interview , hopefully that’s the best thing happened to me because this was the start of Pickyourplate. So after being graduated I went for my higher studies and started pursuing MBA and in very starting of 4 month of MBA life I realised I am not like others because I wasn’t sure about going for job after my MBA but people were so focused for jobs.
What about PickYourPlate?
