Mangat Singh Dhiman an Indian Entrepreneur from UK

Q1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this business/ entrepreneurship?

After MCA, MPhil in Computer Science from India I went to UK for higher education in 2009. My younger brother's close friend from Lincolnshire UK, Mr Mehan encouraged me to help local businesses by making their website in an interactive way. He personally introduced me to local business owners in his circle with an intention to help them for their web requirements. With the support of my younger brother who is a national award winning animator in India and my parents I started this company, AniWebDesigns, in April 2009.  

Q2. Kindly share some information about your Business, products and services here.

My company is mainly into designing websites. Company not only design custom websites but it help businesses to bring traffic on them as well. Having digital marketing team, company make it guide and explain strategy to client and then build its reputation on internet. Company do Logo Design, Graphic Design, Webdesign, CMS and e-Commerce websites, Domain and Hosting, Search Engine Optimization. 

Q3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing business?

I consider challenge as chance to learn something new in an alternative way. Major challenge and plus point in my business is to guide business owners about websites. From starting days of business my intention was to give them a complete solution to stay on google first page not just a website. Website is of no-use if it is not generating sale or inquiries. When we say BusinessOwner that means s/he is non-technical ( majorly ) so to guide him her and explain technicalities is a major challenge, it is productive as well on the same time because you as a resource person who is enlightening someone. By explaining technical feasibility of business concept business-brain can think 10 times towards goal that means me and client working towards mutual growth.  

Q4. Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties in your business?

After meeting first two clients in Derby and Loughborough city, I got a feeling that I not only have to design/redesign websites but also have to educate them about websites, comparison of different technologies terminologies. In a short span of time I developed a gesture of myself as a resource person and more precisely one-stop-shop for their all kind of web related queries and requirements. It make me feel really good that my technical skills are being utilized for someone's benefit. I do IT consulting Free of Cost so that Business Owners can think of business not about technicalities. After every first meeting/call with new client my ending line always is "Now you don't think of technical aspect, I will make it happen, you just think of business concept and development".

Q5. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period?

From time to time I met clients, even their projects gone live, and published blogs to enlighten technicalities, so that business-brain do not feel insecure/uneducated towards new web trends. In UK I also delivered many presentations to group of businesses on breakfast and lunch 4networking.biz meetings on Responsive websites in 2013-2014. 

My company have delivered more than 1500 websites in last 7 years, my vision for next five years is to make my present and upcoming clients business grow. Every business owner have a business concept and it can grow with the help of interactive website, graphic brochures, social media engagement through digital marketing. I want to stand affirm with my clients on every of their website and digital marketing requirement.  

Q7. How would you advice/suggest new entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain in business?

If you have a plan B, its because you don't believe in your plan A. That implies you wasted your precious time on plan A. Don't waste your time, if something is in your mind explore it, research about it and get it done. Don't run for money, run for head in rupee coin. If you will work ( that means Head-side ) money ( that means Rupee-side ) will run along. Nobody can separate Head from Rupee in a coin. If you will run for money then balance will be out and coin will fall flat. Flatten coin can't run only balanced coin can run. Make it run as-much-as-fast-you-want-to Through your Consistent efforts.

The biggest challenge I face was to convince people around me my family members.

It was a challenge to take the first step over as a salaried person there is a constant income In business its different . Also I had lost someone very close to me of cancer.

Both personally and professionally I was devastated as it was a big decision to make. There was a lot of struggle from within with what I was doing what my heart wanted to do?It was a fight between what I was doing (mind) and what I wanted to do (heart)  But once I took a decision there was no looking back No one really supported me as I had found the strength through my mantras and meditation and belief in myself.

I realized mediation is being in present not thinking of the present or future Meditation can also be what you like it could be painting, dancing, reading.

I found a lot of peace within myself. I realized if I can overcome such a turmoil in my life I realized I wanted to help other people overcome their problems and issues  by using my tools and techniques.

Then I prepared modules attended various training programs how to deliver my training in a simple and fun way in which people could understand and apply in their life.

Then I also started learning the Art of facilitation where I realized experimental learning people learn a lot more than training and started putting that in my workshops.This is changed my delivery style and I started getting more workshops.

Dr. Shweta Singh - Professional in Nutrition and Fitness

Q1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this business/ entrepreneurship? 

As a child I was always into exercise so being fit was an essential part of my life, but the inspiration behind making this passion into a full fledged career was the misinformation that people were being given through the internet or other sources and that people were going to extreme lengths just to lose some weight. They needed to be educated on the Science of Nutrition and Exercise.

As a professional in Nutrition and Fitness I do Diet and Fitness consultation. I also hold awareness workshops and Mass Consultation on Nutrition and Fitness. I also write a blog on Nutrition and Exercise.

Q3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing business? 

The challenges that I faced initially in starting up my venture was that people were so used to following fads that it was difficult to convince them to eat normal foods ( ghar ka khana as we call it).Secondly there were already so many ‘Dieticians’ available in the market who promised certain kilos of weight loss, but as time passed and people understood my philosophy on Fitness, I started getting loyal clients and from there it was only and uphill journey.

Q4. Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties in your business? 

My Discovery period. I was consulting a friend who wanted to lose weight and fortunately had faith in me and my knowledge. She and her near and dear ones started seeing changes in her health and appearance in a very short time and were very happy with what they saw.

Q5. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period? 

Once I discovered my calling I started giving health tips in the form of Eye openers so that people saw my knowledge. I started small consultations free of cost to friends. Once they started seeing a difference they recommended my name to others also.

Q6. What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for next five years? 

In the next 5 years I want to be known as the Brand Ambassador for Health. My organisation should will be actively involved in health and fitness awareness and helping people. I envisage a healthier and fitter India and will work towards getting people back to their roots atleast as far as food is concerned. We will be having Nutrition and Fitness centres even in small cities of India.

Q7. How would you advice/suggest new entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain in business? 

For new entrepreneurs I would suggest that if it’s your passion then please don’t leave it. It may take some time but will be worth the effort. Don’t hesitate to give some service or consultation free of cost. It pays off in the end. And most of all, your faith in your product/service is of utmost importance.
