    Investing In Wealth & Health

    Entrepreneurs are a high-risk group whenever the markets catch a cold. Here’s how they invested to keep themselves, and their companies, in the pink of health.

    “If I had to stress about investing in something this year, it would be health. A gym, at this point, is accessible to us on our smartphones. We can always do group exercise classes online or even group challenges for steps with our friends. From a business point of view, investing in AI solutions to drive productivity will be a year-round focus. It will prioritise product sales, optimise our pricing, and provide seamless forecasting.”

    “I have participated in almost 50 marathons, including an 87-km comrade run. Spending time outdoors — running, doing yoga or meditation, swimming or playing a sport — is how I invest in my mental and physical well-being. Good health is the biggest wealth. I believe in financial investments in new ventures that create value and jobs. Success and money are the by-products.”

    “In 2021, I am going to double down on efforts to maintain good health by regular exercise and meditat ion. For our employees too, we are envisaging more ways for people to invest in their mind and body. As for wealth, I actively help upcoming technology entrepreneurs with mentorship and angel investments. I’ll be expanding horizons here to build more pathbreaking global companies from India.”

    “Life is all about tradeoffs. Keep a mental and emotional balance and deal with your anxiety in a positive way. Regular exercise and spending quality time nurturing myself and my family are some of my priorities. On wealth, for those investing in markets, it is better to be diversified and to stay liquid. For entrepreneurs, there needs to be a strong back-up plan. Wealth-creation is a process, but solving customer problems and impacting lives positively is the true purpose.”

    “I plan to invest in crypto and gold this year to hedge against inflation. I plan to do angel investing in startups that are solving India-specific problems. Coming to health, I’ll focus on exercising at home. I picked up meditation in 2020, and it’s helping me a lot. I’d recommend this to everyone. This year, I’ll try to eat healthier, and cut out junk food — even though it’s easier said than done.”

    “I am not a fan of passive investments. I plan to invest my time and capital behind growing my two companies. Healthwise, I believe that which you do not measure, cannot be improved. I have systems and processes that record my diet and exercise, and my goal is to optimise them further. Separately, I have been diving deep into mindfulness and meditation.”
