All of us, and I mean right from students to executives to leaders, have our strength areas that we fall upon consistently.

But as Meena Ganesh crisply puts it, “focusing only on my areas of strength or comfort was not adequate… to succeed as an entrepreneur.

So what are the things that professionals like Meena do at such times, that lifts them from being “a one among the many” and really sets them apart as leaders?

Hear Meena & Ganesh, Partners in GrowthStory, a billion dollar entrepreneurship platform, share their weak areas or”edges” as Meena terms it, and what attitude, practices and strategies helped them to compensate for that.

This is the 5th video of the “Entrepreneurship-Excellence” Series from the inspiring entrepreneur duo.
