It’s Your Business—Run It!: Prerna Gupta
Meet a mobile app developer who wants you to know that even if your first business venture doesn’t succeed, the best thing you can do is pick yourself up and try again.
When Prerna Gupta started a social networking site a few years ago, things were looking good for a while. Then her company fell victim to a rough economy. But she didn’t let that stop her. She moved on to the next idea and started Khush, a company that develops apps for smartphones and other mobile devices.
“Don’t be afraid of failure,” she says. “The most important thing when you go after your dreams is to go after them without fear. I failed and I was able to pick back up and use what I learned from that failure and turn it into success.”
