What purpose does the business idea Dooxle aspire to accomplish?

Dooxle website is uniquely designed for complex E-commerce affiliations. Today we have tie up with several E-commerce ventures in several countries and are currently looking for right partnership with our expansion plans in India.
Dooxle is fast approaching its set-plans to scale-up globally.
6. What are your reasons for choosing the entrepreneurs journey?
No matter what work one does it involves hectic routines and requires sincere contribution. Entrepreneurism is nothing big but a self-created job-profile that involves bigger risks and most of the time no immediate monetary income.
I consider myself an above average risk-taker and an aggressive doer who can relatively easily deal with today’s struggles without getting distracted by lucrative substitutes during failures. In one word, I would say, it’s the ‘job-satisfaction’ that was the prime motive behind I becoming an entrepreneur. The love for the ownership and willingness to take responsibility simply helps me in dealing with the ‘motivation’ part.
My choice to become an entrepreneur is mostly driven by my attitude and not intelligence. Intelligence is mere an added advantage that increases the odds in favor of, and not guarantees, the success.
7.What has been biggest challenge that entrepreneurship has thrown at you?The very basic nature of an Entrepreneurial Venture to manage your own business with scarce resources and to work long hours for making a foreseeable-future (a dream) come true makes it all hard. An entrepreneur may be a good communicator, a good motivator and a good leader in convincing others, but at times the non-stop failures literally forces him to bow down on his knees. It is relatively much easy to keep up with the enthusiasm of the employees, the loaners, friends & relatives but the toughest part is to keep up with the self-motivation.
One has to learn all by himself and train his brain to ignore the negative impact of hard-times and keep going. My involvement in activities like: meeting people, speaking up my mind-out, swimming, yoga etc. helps me a lot in dealing with such circumstances.
8. What lesson made you grow from an amateur to a professional entrepreneur?
During the initial years of my learning back in 2005-2007 I failed to understand the importance of net-working with the right people. Its better late than never; Today I am connected with many major players and business tycoons across the globe.
9. Where did you find the seed capital for your company? Any plans to raise money?
At the time of start of Dooxle its partners pooled in their money to start the operations and bear its initial expense. Today, Dooxle is in a position that we do not need any capital but we are open to join hands with right partners actively looking for expanding globally in E-commerce.
11. Do you have any advice to share with prospective entrepreneurs?
Dear prospective Entrepreneurs; when you will fold your sleeves to act upon your dreams you will realize that the reality and your forecasted assumptions are very different. Many unforeseeable failures and opportunities simultaneously will come on the way. Being agile, focused and determined along with openness to associate with right partners will help a lot in sailing through the tough times. No formula can guarantee success, so always be prepared with your back-up plans.
Nonetheless, the course of action will teach you enough common-sense and practicality of life that you won’t find in books, so whatever be the outcome never get disheartened.
