‘Hindsight is 20/20’ the saying goes. The knowledge gained from experience often makes us want to have done things differently in the first place. This is true for people from all walks of life and entrepreneurs are no exception. In fact, there is so much learning involved in entrepreneurship, the wish to have a time machine can be overwhelming even for the most successful entrepreneur.

Here, GlobalLinker members reveal what advice they would give to their younger selves.

“Initiative is 100 times more productive than conformity.” - Geet Jalota, Director, AskGeet HRD Solutions

“First, learn from seniors. Listen to them, then apply your mind, be focused on whatever the target or goal is and give your 100%.” - Kalpesh Bhatia, CEO, A K Enterprise

 “Arm yourself with knowledge, thorough research, count your risk twice, believe in yourself, have a positive attitude and go ahead with your idea.” - Aruna Budhiraja, Founder, Kreative Konsultants
