“To be honest, it’s the fact that I have to make a name for myself and my profession that has inspired me to work this hard. I am self-inspired and treat myself as an ideal, professionally as well.”

And have successfully completed numerous fast-track and design/build projects along with conventionally scheduled and organized assignments, which has been the biggest inspiration.

Along his journey, he met some established names who had been his guardian angel – Mrs Bhavna Manish Bohra (Founder of Vakrangee foundation), Mr Dinesh Patel (Director, DEE VEE Group), Mr Amar Parwani (Director G.K Group), are some of those renowned industry names.
Rohit feels passion, zeal and dedication are the three essentials for being a successful businessman. The only key to pursue your profession is to take it seriously. Whatever you do, do it with passion, maintaining the line of integrity and dignity. Rest all will fall in place. Work commitment further adds professionalism. And then building a strong team becomes the backbone of the organisation which one goes on to set it up gradually. Before signing off, to the young entrepreneurs out there, Rohit advices,
“Believe in yourself. Instead of listening to others or getting inspiration from others, be your role model. Fix your daily objective and make your own script and follow accordingly. I believe one should choose quality over quantity.”
