Travelling makes an individual step out of their comfort zone and witness everything that is enjoyable as well as challenging at the same time. It helps you build a deeper understanding on various cultures and how different societies work which in turn would really benefit a professional to grow in a diversified set up, especially while working internationally.
Travelling improves the ability to adapt, which is a very essential trait that is expected from any individual in a professional arrangement. It also introduces one to new people and helps in making new connections which widens their network which actually can be favourable at some point of time.
Talking about the same, Rishiraj says, ‘’ I have always seen travelling as one of my hobbies ever since I was a kid. Speaking out of my experience, travelling has been a way to enrich my life experiences and has also taught me extremely applicable skills which have been beneficial to me as an entrepreneur and I’m sure every time I travel there would be a new skill I would explore along the way. I have understood myself a little more than before every time I travel. It’s undoubtedly made me more open minded as well as instilled a multi cultural personality in me which has not only made it easier for me to function with the local or global markets but also helped me strategize my path as an entrepreneur.
