November 18: An individual’s dreams and aspirations are the driving force behind his success. With a strong sense of self-belief, determination, and a pinch of luck, anyone can make their dreams come true.
Jitan is one such individual who is an inspiration to all, not just because of his success but also for the way he achieved it. He’s built his business by following his passions and letting them lead him to success.
The founder of WireMonster, Jitan Kaundal, has always been an ambitious man. He quit three jobs within 9 months after graduating in 2018. Later, he turned down a 30k job offer from a multinational company for a 10k job at a startup to hustle and learn. In fact, he walked away from becoming the CEO of a fast-growing design startup because it wasn’t challenging enough for him.
Every time he made a decision, he knew exactly what he wanted.
But it has not been smooth sailing for the brand growth expert. During periods of quarantine and social distance, when people were able to reinvent themselves or simply rest and pause in their lives, Jitan and his co-founder Siddharth achieved their goal of bringing their dream business to reality.
The determined entrepreneur founded three boot-strapped startups, failed in two, and succeeded in one! Within the initial year of his successful digital startup (The WireMonster), he raked in $50k+ revenue from monthly retainer clients.
When asked about how he scaled WireMonster, he says, “We didn’t think about monetization and how we would make money. We just wanted to get customers and keep building out our services.” He continues, “Being able to assist many small to medium enterprises with their digital marketing strategies and generate qualified results is something that motivates me. I am immensely satisfied knowing that what we are offering is a great fit for the market and will be of great help to these companies, especially in such a saturated market.”
He proudly states, “The first year that my agency was in operation, I bought a BMW out of my pocket. Though I am not working for big ventures like Microsoft or Google, I have a Microsoft-funded startup in Africa as my client, which is an impressive accomplishment in itself.”
For Jitan, it’s not just about doing something he enjoys and being compensated well for it—it’s about creating a legacy.
The entrepreneur adds that we’ve all got a story about how an obstacle, big or small, caused us to veer off course from our goals. Entrepreneurship can be hard on relationships and sleep schedules, but success is even more difficult if you quit before you get there. It may feel like quitting is more secure than continuing onward through rough patches, but quitting will always lead to more time wasted than moving forward ever will.
