Success is a definition, defined by You.
Every year we hear new names of start-ups, companies and individuals coming up and stories of their hardships, struggles and eventually their hard work, efforts and will lead them to become one of the famous and respected people on this planet.
This year has been nothing but a roller coaster ride for everyone, not only the lockdown but also the shift of work on an online and work-from-home basis has affected a lot of functioning procedures of companies, firms, institutions, etc. This year has created a lot of troubles and brought various unexpected situations that these organisations and almost everyone were not prepared for.
The Pandemic Year brought down a lot of companies, businesses and industries as this year was all about making the break-even point due to the impact of the pandemic on supply, demand and the overall global economy. But this did not stop some gutsy and dedicated individuals and they used this pandemic as an opportunity in disguise and started their business or start-up and made a name for themselves and in the world of start-up and business. These people did not see anything in their way and gave everything in their power and will and achieved success when everyone thought this year was a bane for one and all.
