She said that she did this and it worked out for her. To grow as an entrepreneur, she sets weekly targets and that target setting process urges her to work towards realising the targets and goals that she set for herself.

She invited all to “Dream Big”.  Quoting Late Dr. Abdul Kalam, she said ‘It is a crime to dream small’. ‘As students you must dream big for your academic achievements. Focus on your studies and set targets for achievement in your studies. I told the same to my daughter and she set target and got above 90% in every paper because she had a dream to achieve and set targets to achieve these dreams.’
