From Simerpreet’s Perspective
Why Did You Start ThingsGoSocial?
“ThingsGoSocial is a social platform created to better connect humans and machines. We’re creating an ecosystem where people can interact with machines without any previous knowledge or predefined skill set. Our end-to-end solution is driving digital transformation leading to a socially collaborated, socially empowered, socially safe, socially secure, socially connected future. ”
What Was Your Biggest Challenge During the First Year?
“[My biggest challenge] was changing the mindset of the people in my community. People are very reluctant to change. I found that people are aware of technology and the impact it can have on advancing their business, but what they lack is a specific road-map how to take the right approach and get the best ROI.”
What Advice Would You Give New Entrepreneurs?
“Take the time to stop, pause, and think. Define your vision and make a plan to achieve it. And if things don’t seem right, ask yourself ‘what [you] might be doing wrong or could do differently.’ But don’t ever be afraid to follow your dreams or to follow your path. Defy the norms. Achieve your dreams.”
