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.
