Hi Aparna,

This is really good to aspire for entrepreneurship. Being an entrepreneur and start something of their own is something which almost every second person aspire for. But the aspiration or dream should not just be like a day dreaming. If you really want to be an entrepreneur, it must be your commitment from your inner self. And I very well know from my own experience that this is not an easy decision, but once you decided for this with calculative approach, you have taken the first stem to come out to be a winner. Doesn't matter you fail or succeed, this is y guarantee that you will definitely be a winner in terms of tremendous learning, experience, patience and facing challenges in a better way than any other successful employee (who are into job).

My 5 Step Guide for entrepreneurship is here- 

1. So first step in starting something of your own is- COMMITMENT

2. Then, second is to decide on what are your interests and can you make your interests as your career? if it is so, you can do wonders, because you will never like working because you will be feeling like pursuing you passion, and when we pursue our passion there is no limit to our performance, you will be easy at getting through the problems and tough times. If you are able to identify field or area of your interest, excellent, other wise you may seek some professional help for this. 

In case you like the area of your business but it is not your passion or interest, but you like it just for the shake of making money, I advice you to give it a second thought. Please don't go for just making money. TRY TO THINK FOR SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS. Once you choose to find solutions to some real world problems and make it your business, you will be shining like any existing world famous entrepreneurs. 

3. Once you are done with your area of business, you should make a good research in the area on existing setups and think how you can be different from those. Then start preparing a detailed business plan for the idea. 

4. Now a days our government is supporting startups like ever before with STARTUP INDIA campaign. A special division, support and grants are allocated for this. Go and take that greater ever support in building your business. You can find further details on govt. support at- startupindia.gov.in 

5. Go!!! Start and build you dream. Put in your best efforts. Make yourself LIVE by reading successful stories, ideas and articles. Be in touch with your mentors, always seek expert help. Again I would repeat be COMMITTED. This is the key to success. 

For motivation, you can listen to Sandeep Maheshwari, an excellent youth motivator on entrepreneurship.

Dear Aspirant,

I really appreciate that you wish to do something of your own.

Basically, I am worried by your statement that you wish to be an entrepreneur but not related to your education. Actually, it is better to get into entrepreneurship based on your education domain.

You being a computer science student you are thinking of another domain entrepreneurship, which is fine but not very much fool proof.

Yes, for being an entrepreneur one does not necessarily think on the basis of the education taken and one can do any business for that matter.

For getting into business, first thing required is a business idea which can be implemented and worth of earning money/revenue. Now this can be of any domain or industry.

Learning entrepreneurship through a formal course is possible, however in the practical life, it needs much more that just theoretical knowledge. Finding investors for the business idea, finding the right people to work for your venture are not so simple things.

I would suggest that you are on a very positive frame of mind to get into business of your own, but that needs to be put on paper from all aspects. Do view some videos on internet about startups, etc. where you will get an idea about entrepreneurship.

Best wishes
