When you think about starting a business from scratch, what thoughts might be racing through your mind? There is a lot of excitement and tonnes of ideas that sometimes tumble over each other. But there’s also a sense of unease, a fear of not knowing and perhaps even a hint of worry.
All of it is understandable yet it is bound to interfere with execution. At times like this, you seek some help, support, and guidance from a mentor who can help put your enthusiastic ideas into a detailed action plan for your business.
Here is a person who writes from personal experience as a junior manager climbing up the rungs of the corporate ladder to establishing his own startup, dealing with practical problems, trials and tribulations that he faced and how he dealt with them.

Easy-to-Read language of the book
LEAP AHEAD is written in an easy-to-read language that touches the right nerve, making the book unputdownable. Schematic, informative yet not in the least bit stodgy as most books of this genre tend to become.
The book is centred around Mohan Dixit, an IIT alumnus who begins a startup as soon as he gets out of college. He faces many dilemmas and challenges which he overcomes with the guidance of his college super senior and eventually his mentor, Deepak Kalra aka DK.
The narrative is well written, bringing out exactly what any startup entrepreneur faces. The gems of knowledge and insight that Kammal Kkalra shares through the character of DK is what makes this book invaluable.
Born and brought up in Delhi, Kammal Kkalra, proudly calls himself an “intra-preneur”. He has spent 15 years in corporates as well as startups. After working with companies and businesses like IBM, American Express, Micromax and Snapdeal, he is currently associated with a successful e-commerce brand. Writing has been his passion and he enjoys telling stories from all walks of life. He also mentors upcoming startups and entrepreneurs. When not working or writing, he can be found either taking an online mentoring session or playing with his two kids and a pet at home. Kammal can be reached on Facebook, Instagram, X or LinkedIn. His book Leap Ahead can be ordered online on Amazon. How about asking questions about your startup or business from Kammal?
