Guts and Glory profiles twenty entrepreneurs who have conquered limitations and obstacles to write their stories of success. In the beginning was just an idea. Gutsy and driven by the will to succeed, they aspired to shun the limitations of working in cushy corporate jobs and confront the challenges of the unknown by plunging into entrepreneurship. Where will we generate the finances from? How will we deal with disappointment and disillusionment? Such questions and apprehensions didn’t have the power to demotivate these entrepreneurs as they moved out of their comfort zones to start out on their own and chase their dreams. They run businesses ranging from apparel and FM radio to beer cafés and wineries, from HR consultancies and leadership training organizations to software firms and advertising agencies These former MBA students of SIBM Pune are glorious and inspiring examples for those who feel that the fear of failure—and its repercussions—is holding them back from realizing their ambitions.
