One must try to find humour in failure and bounce back stronger
“Businesses are all about uncertainties and despite one’s best efforts, one may meet failures and adversities. In such conditions, an entrepreneur should face tragedy with some sense of humour. One must learn to laugh at one’s failures and then bounce back stronger, wiser,” said Mr. Anwar Daud, CEO-MD, ZIM Laboratories. He made the statement while addressing the gathering at Vidarbha Management Association’s Sunday talk at Chitnavis Centre recently.
ZIM Laboratories was started by Mr. Anwar Daud in 1989 in Kalmeshwar. Over the years, the company has grown steadily and extended its operations across continents.

He advised entrepreneurs to focus on simplifying things for efficient and productive operations.
