The fact that what is happening in India is that most of people is competing for job but none thinks for the one who provides the job. Most of us are jobseekers and not the job providers.
And also what you do whether job or business do it to your level best as every field has its limit as sky i.e., there is nothing called limit and capacity atleast for humans the more you strectch yourself the more will be your capacity.
The amount of hard work they (the men with 110% support from their better halves) put to achieve the sweet taste of success. The book even shows how INDIAN culture influences their lives even when not in India.
The stories are certainly more detailed than the 40 pages they occupy in the book. But the author clearly knows how to tell a good story. The choice of characters is absolutely delightful and you only want to know more about more such people.
Do not read this book as a text book to your entrepreneurial MBA program. This book will help you in no way. But read this book to know how hard work cannot be skipped on the way to success.
How important hard work is along with a goal and focus in life is highlighted in all the stories.
Jay- the insurance agent is a very lovable person and made me cry throughout his story.
Finished the book in just about 2 days, and all I can say now is that the name of the books "How Gujarati's do Business" is a misnomer. Although factually correct, its more a story of how HARD WORKING these dudes were. They could have been any one, parsi or marathi or whatever. What would be more correct - "How these 5 Gujaratis Did Business." I am a gujurati myself and have been observing that this spirit of taking risk has been dampening and people are satisfied with a day job and shopping in malls on weekends. The book takes you through that SPIRIT of taking risks very well. When education was not what gujaratis could bank on, all they had is this spirit of being self employed.
Read it and know for yourself. Do not resist the flow of tears and the lumps in the throat.
