Q: Hello Rohit, welcome to Startup Fortune, could you tell us a little about yourself and your background?
A: First of all, I would like to thank you for inviting me to be interviewed on Startup Fortune. In quick words, I’m an author, programmer, and the CEO of international digital marketing services company Codesler.
I started our startup with my elder brother Rahul Chouhan (founder of Codesler) in January 2019 in Ajmer City, Rajasthan (India). Ajmer is a famous city of Rajasthan, known for Pushkar, Ana Sagar and Khawaja Gharib Nawaz. My Brother is also a programmer.
Q: What was your motivation to start your own company instead of choosing a conventional job?
A: It was not my goal to do my own business instead of doing a job. I didn’t even know that I would start my own business. I wanted to build a better career, so I started working hard in my field. Then my elder brother Rahul Chouhan, who was confident about my skills, advised me to start my own business.
Q: How did your family and friends react when you started your career as an entrepreneur?
A: My family was very happy with my success, they were proud of their sons doing well at a young age. I saw tears in my mother’s eyes, when I told her about the first payment we have received from the company. She is really happy with our success.
My friends were also very emotional with my success and they always motivate me. And today because of their support, I am in this position. At the age of 11, I had done so much that my friends used to tell me that you will surely be successful in the future.
Q: What was your biggest challenge in starting your own business as a very young entrepreneur?
A: That’s a good question, the biggest challenge in starting my own business was that I started Codesler at the age of 20, and I had to allocate time for my studies as well, at the same time. It was difficult to handle both simultaneously but I was determined and managed to do my business alongside my career.
I paid attention to my studies during the day, and spent the nights at my company. I was able to sleep only for 4-5 hours a day.
