A Promoter’s Dilema : MSME Special!

Prologue: Transforming organization might appear to be an overwhelming responsibility for a business owner, but that is because the outlook of majority of  entrepreneurs toward transformation is flawed. For transformation to be effective and enduring, promoters must  learn to first change themselves.

Pluto conveys releasing of dormant power. Pluto is planet of expiration and resurgence…redeeming our own existence and emerging out as much resilient being. It represents endings and new beginnings, as well as transcendental growth and reawakening.   Traditionally, many dynamic entrepreneurs have set the golden path for the “entrepreneurial upsurge” in our country.
