Please give us a summary of your Career.

After my degree, I started looking for jobs in various cities and found one in Bombay, but after I started working there I felt the need to go back my native place and search for work there. So I started my second job as a lecturer in a university.
I later quit that job to start a computer servicing company that did not take off well.
Later, I felt that I need to invent something on my own, so I started researching on motor starters that help in bringing water to farms and set up my business around that product.

Please describe your current Job Responsibilities as an Owner of a Manufacturing Enterprise.

I start my business day by checking and updating accounts of the previous day. I then proceed to check if the accounts match to the stock in my inventory. Then I start assigning work to my employees based on the level of inventory and demand of the previous day and projected demand. As we have services facility in our establishment I proceed to look over the serving needs of the customers and also try and solve their queries. If the number of employees falls short on any particular day, I take over some of the work.

What are some of the positives, which would encourage someone to start their own Manufacturing Enterprise

The amount of satisfaction of serving farmers, who are the backbone of our country, that comes with this job is high. I can control the amount of manufacturing so that I do not get overwhelmed by the amount of workload. There is also some sense of pride as I am able to create jobs for so many people. I can innovate and improve things as and when the problem occurs rather than waiting for the approval of others.

What are some of the negatives that you would want someone to be aware of when starting his/her own Manufacturing Enterprise?

This business is mainly a seasonal one so, one must be ready to over-work during the peak seasons so as to fulfill the demand. Any business is usually risky and one must be capable of maintaining cool and think of solutions during the fall.
The raw material required for the company has to be bought or ordered regularly and any lag in the order can cause a delay in the production might result in the loss of customers.
