Miki Agrawal is a serial entrepreneur who has founded three multi-million dollar companies. She’s the founder of the underwear brand THINX and the author of “Do Cool Shit,” which answers the question of how to create your own path in entrepreneurship. In a recent BBN International interview, Miki Agrawal discussed why people should trust their intuition over what was expected of them.
The Current Business Era
In a world where entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly popular, it’s important to remember that the best entrepreneurs can push their own boundaries. We live in an era with so much information available that society constantly tells us what our path should be and how we should do things. But the best entrepreneurs know better than anyone else that they must trust themselves above all else if they want their business ventures to succeed.
Follow Your Own Instinct
This isn’t easy for everyone, especially those who have been conditioned throughout their lives not to listen to their intuition but instead follow more traditional paths like law school or medical school, which are typically considered safe bets for success even if one does not feel passionate about pursuing them.
This is especially true for girls and women, who are told to follow certain career paths and obtain particular degrees to succeed later in life. Regarding what makes you happy, Miki Agrawal urges people to trust their gut instincts over societal expectations and do whatever makes them feel fulfilled. If you don’t trust your instincts, you may never realize your true passions and never follow your dreams.
Ultimately, it’s important to remember that there’s no right or wrong way to be a social entrepreneur. If you’re passionate about what you do and want to impact the world around you, then go for it. The only thing that matters is doing what makes sense for your own personal journey rather than following someone else’s footsteps just because they seem like an easy route forward.
