Many of you might have read the famous poem “the road not taken” by Robert Frost. The poem describes choosing the road less travelled.

“Where there is a will, there is a way”. If you aspire to take charge and do something no one else did you can and you will do it.

The road might be less travelled, the way full of obstacles and challenges, but if you desire strongly it will drive you through it.

Because no one can stop a star from shining if it’s ready to burn for the cause. No one can stop you from being a successful entrepreneur if you dedicate enough time and efforts to the cause.
