It is always easy to push failure under the carpet and not talk about it, but look around and see how most successful entrepreneurs have gone through the worst ups and downs and yet emerged as unbeatable. Life was never easy then but with the competition emerging nowadays it is going to get even more difficult and rocky.
Hence, the most basic and essential characteristic of a true entrepreneur is to fight back against all the odds and emerge with opportunities. Same goes with the life of one of the most talked superstar turned entrepreneur Twinkle Khanna.
Twinkle Khanna (born Tina Jatin Khanna) is an Indian author, newspaper columnist, film producer, former film actress and interior designer. Her first book Mrs Funnybones sold over one hundred thousand copies, making her India’s highest selling female writer of 2015. Her recent book, Pyjamas Are Forgiving was recently released and debuted at number 1 on Nielson Bookscan All-India bestseller list. Not only that she won the Outlook Award for the most inspiring woman of the year. She got invited to be a part of an eminent panel at United Nations, New York on Women’s Entrepreneurship Day.
The celeb turned entrepreneur, author and columnist Mrs. Funny Bones, aka Twinkle Khanna was a college dropout. Despite co-owning a chain of interior design stores (The White Window) and being being one of India’s most successful authors, Twinkle doesn’t hold a professional degree. However, that has never held her back. She was not a success in her first stint in the movie industry but is now poised to make a comeback- albeit with a different route. She is also the co-founder of the production company Grazing Goat Pictures. This time around, Twinkle is using cinema to have her voice heard through movies.
Unapologetic about her life choices and comfortable discussing her failure in the film industry, Twinkle manages to tickle the funny bone while talking about issues that need to be highlighted. Being a true entrepreneur, she never refrains from speaking her mind. The best thing this superstar taught other woman with her words was: Embrace your failures.
