Globetrotting is the best way to experiential learning, says PiranTarapore, a 21-year old who has experienced a lot of the world's culture at a young age. Piran has already set foot into the world of business and has successfully set-up his first business, Pro Digital Nomad, while at University. He spends his free time by attempting to develop his skills in the creative arts space, with a focus on filmmaking and design.
Piran thinks that travel can benefit every aspiring entrepreneur in multiple ways by enhancing their skill-set. Piran gives us a few insights on why travel is an essential part of an entrepreneur's development.
Resilience - Being resilient oneself and having a team backing you up through thick and thin is crucial for any startup. Things will go off track a few times in the beginning, but there will always be better days. You may run out of money, lose clients, and get rejected. But at this time, if you lose hope and quit, your entrepreneurial journey is over. You need to keep fighting, which you will be able to, once you have dealt with the many hardships you're exposed to during your travels.
Humility - Travel helps you discover that there are beautiful souls everywhere. People all over the world will embrace your family and you — there will be random acts of kindness, often by people who have less than you do in life. The most successful startup entrepreneurs are incredibly humble, empathetic and down-to-earth, according to Piran.
Open-mindedness - Travel forces us to reassess previously held assumptions, especially on a cultural and racial level. While on the move, you will meet people from various cultures with different ways of thinking and opinions on different topics. Go out there, listen to other people's problems and their life stories. Travelling will help put everything into perspective.
Even while in Australia for his master's degree, Piran's fan-following is increasing multifold on social media and he is setting trends through his posts on Instagram. He has inspired scores of Indian youngsters to set foot overseas. PiranTarapore still has a long way to go and we regularly check his Instagram for the latest scoop on his life and travels. We look forward to following Piran's journey and to cover his travel stories soon. Good luck, Piran!
