You work for a big company before for almost 13 years right woman what kind of I mean what kind of adoption you had to make and what do you see the main difference between working for a large Enterprise and then coming into a startup? I think the main thing is that a lot of the assumptions that you have in terms of things that usually take care of themselves have to be taken care by you manually. So if things from running your office to you know, getting your own cup of tea, you know starting from you know, small things like that to doing larger things like doing strategic discussions and pitches to investors doing the entire end-to-end range of things and I think that's very refreshing because typically in a large company you are either stuck in a small role or you doing the Strategic role and it's very difficult to get your hands dirty in something else. So for me, I was stuck in a management role and though my love was programming I could really never get the chance to get my hands dirty in code. But here I really have the flexibility of doing strategic as well as you know getting deep down into the smallest of things and I think that is very liberating. Okay, right so you have to make your own tea and you have to make your own strategic decisions. Correct. That's great, great. Okay. I mean, have you ever had any doubts or questions like what happens if it doesn't work out? I had this good job and good pay, good money coming in. I'm leaving now, but what happens if you know if the startup is screwed. So I think that's a very true fare frankly for lot of the startups. Okay, and I think it's not something that can be brushed under the carpet at all. And I think at least I can speak for myself. I think the planning that at least I have done on a personal front is that you know, I am at a position in my career where and in my personal life that you know, some of the basics are taken care of so I don't need to worry about Day-to-day, you know bread for some period of time. Right. Okay, and that is comforting because if I had a big for example a big home loan or something like that looming over my neck all the time then Oh then I would always be in a hurry to do what is best for me and not best for the startup and I think I'm probably actually all of us including Prateek, Saurav and me. We've all kind of planned our financials in a way that we don't have that, you know that fire under us to you know, think of money in the short term and I think that liberates us from thinking only in the next for the next few months and then, you know, we can take a step back and plan for our larger lives. Right. Okay. Okay. I got it. So with that, I probably have to move on to the last question on the business side of things. What's the best advice you have ever received? I think the best advice actually was from a seasoned businessman. Okay what he told me was that Don't be in a hurry to make money. Okay businesses take time to run normal. In the real-world, businesses take anywhere from two years to three years to you know,to be successful and nowadays the startups always seem to be trying to make money in five to six months and that is not a realistic model. So if you are going to do this and don't think of getting into a job back for at least the next three years or four years. And stick your neck out And you know do what it takes. So that was the guidance that I got from a friend of mine. Don't be in a hurry to make money. That's great advice, you got there. Awesome.
