There are many younger and older In­di­ans, who keep on mov­ing and fight­ing to achieve suc­cess. In fact, while some tend to fall and take u-turn due to “chal­lenges”, which is com­mon to In­dia, there is al­ways pos­si­bil­ity of im­prove­ment and can be achieved what is once de­cided by heart.

Given these try­ing cir­cum­stances, it is easy to lose hope and ques­tion whether one will en­joy com­pelling pro­fes­sional busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties; this is es­pe­cially true for those with lit­tle, if any, post-sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion, fail­ures or no busi­ness back­ground.

Ram Nagori, owner and founder of Nagori IT World show­cased his pro­fes­sional jour­ney in IT in­dus­try and ex­celled pro­fes­sion­ally. A self­taught busi­ness per­son now earns nearly an eight-fig­ure in­come and serv­ing Gwalior and up­coun­try mar­ket with great hard­ware of­fer­ings as well as so­lu­tions.

Here are a few lessons for suc­cess that we can learn from Nagori’s pro­fes­sional jour­ney:

Make the Most of What You Have: Grow­ing up in Gwalior, Nagori moved to Delhi for higher stud­ies and pur­sued BCA from F Tech. He once hoped to pre­pare for some gov­ern­ment exam and be­come some renowned of­fi­cer with good stars. How­ever, he moved back to his home­town af­ter com­ple­tion of his de­gree in or­der to pre­pare for MPTSE exam (for gov­ern­ment po­si­tion) for which he also man­aged to clear his pre­lim­i­nary exam. And on the other side he was fall­ing in love with tech­nol­ogy ev­ery sin­gle day pass­ing. Days passed and he gave main exam for MPTSE but was un­able to clear which hap­pened for the two times.

He soon re­al­ized that there is some­thing which is not let­ting him con­cen­trate and off course that was love for com­put­ers. Nev­er­the­less, he was de­ter­mined to gen­er­ate value from now what he had. Based on techno per­for­mance, he even­tu­ally started his com­puter teach­ing in­sti­tute and used that as a launch­ing pad for a suc­cess­ful ca­reer, quickly mov­ing up to a hard­ware lover and founder. In his free time, Nagori used to set­tle hard­ware is­sues he used to face and honed his tech abil­i­ties to at­tain his ul­ti­mate ca­reer goals.

Ram Nagori set up his hard­ware busi­ness and started his com­pany in the name of Nagori IT world in Gwalior with the help of Prad­han Mantri Yo­jana in 1995.

Build Your Skills Con­stantly: No mat­ter what po­si­tion you are in to­day, you must con­tinue to build and hone your skills. Nagori took this les­son to heart, ab­sorb­ing use­ful skills while at the ini­tial stage of work and ap­ply­ing them through­out his ca­reer.

For in­stance, he per­fected his hard­ware ser­vice skills while he was run­ning his Com­puter teach­ing in­sti­tutes, which have been key to his long-term suc­cess. “Un­der­stand­ing the role and value of the hard­ware tech­nol­ogy and pro­vid­ing so­lu­tions to cus­tomers helped me find, get, keep and ex­cel in busi­ness,” he says. “It gives me an edge over my bet­ter-ed­u­cated peers. It helps me make more in­tel­li­gent, in­formed de­ci­sions and rec­om­men­da­tions to my client.”

Bal­ance Your Pas­sion with Prac­ti­cal­ity: When choos­ing a ca­reer, be pre­pared to find a happy medium be­tween your pas­sion and re­al­ity. Nagori’s dream was to be a renowned per­son­al­ity, and he man­aged to pro­vide ap­pre­cia­ble so­lu­tions and prod­ucts in Mad­hya Pradesh at that time when peo­ple were op­pos­ing Com­puter tech­nol­ogy. Nagori It World ini­ti­ated busi­ness with LG mon­i­tors, DVD and be­came an au­tho­rized dis­trib­u­tor. Like all other com­pa­nies’ Nagori It World came across chal­lenges such as well trained em­ploy­ees, ac­cep­tance for this busi­ness, mon­e­tary funds to run sales op­er­a­tion, etc.

“I en­joyed solv­ing dif­fi­cult tasks, meet­ing tough dead­lines. I re­ally loved feel­ing as if I’m a valu­able part of this in­dus­try,” he brightly said.

You Can Over­come Vir­tu­ally Any Ob­sta­cle: When your per­sonal life throws you a curve­ball, don’t let that hin­der your ca­reer progress. “I was ner­vous at ini­tial times,” he ad­mits, “but I knew my skill set, and I put my­self out there. When you pur­sue op­por­tu­ni­ties rig­or­ously, it will pay off.” He rec­om­mends form­ing good re­la­tion­ships with ev­ery cus­tomer who con­tacts you. “When cus­tomer ap­proached me with a is­sue in which I may not be per­fect, I al­ways try to give them a so­lu­tion and try learn.” As a re­sult, cus­tomers of­ten come back to him later to avail more ser­vices or to con­sult.

Keep Up With the Chang­ing Times: “Ear­lier busi­ness was to­tally ven­dor-ori­ented which ex­ists no more as per cur­rent trends. Now busi­ness is cus­tomer ori­ented, we have to care for his money, en­sure right qual­ity of ser­vice of­fered, take care of af­ter sales ser­vice which makes worth busi­ness per­son to take ser­vice from, “ex­plained Nagori. Re­la­tion­ships if main­tained in trans­par­ent way than your jour­ney will take you to the top level. “Em­ployee sat­is­fac­tion is one of the keys which I al­ways took care of and over the few years the ben­e­fits have im­proved sig­nif­i­cantly. Another as­pect of busi­ness that I love is the lack of stag­na­tion as new things keep on com­ing. I learn con­stantly, and keep on up­dat­ing trends as per cus­tomer’s choice as well as mar­ket needs,” added Nagori.

Com­pany keeps on con­duct­ing aware­ness and train­ing pro­grams for re­sellers, deal­ers, re­tail­ers as well as em­ploy­ees.

Above All Else, Be

Re­source­ful: Nagori has known that he wanted to be an IT busi­ness pro­fes­sional since he stepped into it, and he has con­stantly worked on im­prov­ing and adding on prod­uct of­fer­ings. His com­pany is au­tho­rized dis­trib­u­tor for Dell, Len­ovo, HP, Canon and In­tel with over 100 plus deal­ers and re­sellers.

While not ev­ery­one will ex­pe­ri­ence the suc­cess with­out fac­ing chal­lenges, keep learn­ing valu­able lessons from your ex­pe­ri­ences and trends. Though busi­ness and grad­u­ate ed­u­ca­tion is cer­tainly a huge as­set (and of­ten a key dif­fer­en­tia­tor for many), we must also con­tinue to fo­cus on the core at­tributes that drive suc­cess: adapt­abil­ity, per­sis­tence, and prac­ti­cal­ity. With these and a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude, you’ll find that you can pros­per no mat­ter what ob­sta­cles or dis­ad­van­tages you may face.

Mag­i­cal words: Nagori be­lieves that even those who may not seem to be best po­si­tioned for suc­cess have found that with cre­ativ­ity, de­ter­mi­na­tion and op­ti­mism; they can max­i­mize their po­ten­tial and cre­ate ex­cit­ing pro­fes­sional op­por­tu­ni­ties for them­selves.
