When I started out my journey into the world of cheese, what really drove me ahead each day was the urge to try out new things… new cheese… new avenues… I loved to experiment. Sometimes I had good days… sometimes I failed… But Everytime I failed it pushed me harder to keep experimenting till I figured it out! Curiosity kills a cat they say… and for me it really made me go all out.. and dive deep into the Cheese ocean…
I have no idea whether this is a good or bad trait to have…. to be this curious… As the focus wasn’t as much on selling my cheese but more on learning about cheese… and experimenting with it. And seeing how it behaves… how the milk behaves in our climate… I was excited about the challenge of doing something which no one ever did… at least in our country. And when it was ready for the market… And when the customers came back with raving reviews about it… that’s when I truly got my reward! And this motivated me even more, to unveil the possibilities in the world of cheese.
The challenge of discovering something new… The thrill of seeing imagination turn to reality totally consumed me. The urge was so hard that I was ready to put aside my goal to earn money. And I wonder if this is something which you guys can relate too? I am not sure its ideal… but this was my journey. And there were pluses and minuses!
