1.Hello Pranav! Please tell us about yourself.
Hello, thanks for this opportunity to feature in your website. I am Pranav Arora and I am an Asian-American entrepreneur from Ohio. I started my first company at the age of 16.At present I am CEO of two successful companies which are Just Funky and Stunned Mind.
2. What inspired you to become an entrepreneur? Please share more about your journey?
As I said I started my first company when I was 16 and I was a student. I was with entrepreneurial mind from the young days. With this entrepreneurial spirit I always wanted to do my own business. This is where I helped my parents to develop Just Funky, a successful lifestyle firm. Starting from there I founded other companies and this journey itself is an inspiration to me.
3. Tell us more about Stunned Mind.
Stunned Mind is founded as an Ecommerce business. It sells one-of-a-kind pop culture products directly to the customers. Most of these products which are sold at Stunned Mind are coming from Just Funky.
I noticed that there is an opportunity for ecommerce businesses. Therefore I founded Stunned Mind as a business strategy. At present Stunned Mind runs successfully making it a leading online platform for many different items. At the time of launching Stunned Mind, it was an adventure as there were no much e-commerce shops available.
With the success of Stunned Mind, I later founded few businesses as well namely Naturable and Deciph-AR. Overall I find launching Stunned Mind is the biggest step I took as an entrepreneur and I am happy I did that!
4. Did you face any difficulties or challenges in your entrepreneurial journey? How did you face the challenges?
Honestly, this entrepreneur journey was not smooth. I had to face challenges. At the beginning when I started my first company as a student, I was a teenager as well. I stuck in my life as a teenager and an entrepreneur. However I desperately wished to be an entrepreneur and worked towards my goals. I had a goal and extreme desire of becoming an entrepreneur. This led my life as an entrepreneur until today as a successful entrepreneur.
Looking back, I am happy with what I have done and achieved so far. I have achieved my dream as a successful entrepreneur. I don’t regret about the events I missed as a teenager. Today I have accomplished my goals and I am happy with that.
5. Would you like to share some advice for others who see you as an inspirational and successful entrepreneur?
My best advice to you is never give up! Your entrepreneur journey can be full of ups and downs. However don’t let downs in your journey to keep you away from achieving your goals. Face the challenges and go for it!
