Twinkle Tushar Thakkar - New beginning in Happiness & Wellness Coaching

1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this business/ entrepreneurship?

My career started in 1998 when I decided to guide children and help them to develop a zeal for their studies.

I was always passionate about gaining knowledge and my experience guiding children helped me to grow as a trainer by learning & teaching simultaneously.

2. Kindly share some information about your Business, products and services here.

I started training children in computer and science subjects.

Later I became an educational consultant and shared my expertise to benefit people of all ages.

Being a national chess player and software geek helped me expand my training ambitions in these two fields too.

3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing business?

Back in 1998 there was no structured path for a trainer to develop his/her skill set. It was a very unorganised sector where train the trainer concept was unheard of. Even the marketing aspect was not as easy as it is today, the only publicity available then was the word of mouth.

4. Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties in your business?

Well to be honest everyday is a discovery period, every difficult situation has a novel solution hidden within waiting to be discovered and acted upon. Having said this I would like to add that the most important aspect to a successful business is zero resistance to change. I had to constantly evolve according to the changing requirements of the training industry.

5. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period?

My efforts to improve my training abilities helped me grow as a technical process trainer in the corporate field. I got an opportunity to be trained by the trainers in UK and come back to India and impart this new gained technical knowledge.

6. What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for the next five years?

My future plans involve training using my knowledge in medicine and merge it with lifestyle and thought process changes to achieve a happier and healthier society.

7. How would you advice/suggest new entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain in business?

My suggestion to start any new venture would be to start taking small consecutive steps in the direction of your goals. The fear of failure and mistakes cripples your steps and stagnates your venture. So I would advise to accept success and failure likewise and always have a standby plan to improvise in case of failure.
