Between juggling multiple dream projects and managing investors as well as consumer expectations, startup founders have a tough job. But is it easier for second-time entrepreneurs?

This week on YourStory UNCUT, seasoned entrepreneur Brijraj Bhuptani answers this question. 

Former Chief Product and Technology Officer at Ola, Brijraj shares his entrepreneurial journey so far from founding Ridlr, to working at Ola, and then starting Spry in May last year, which he runs currently.

Looking back at the hurdles today, Brijraj believes that hard work is not always the way out of challenging times.
