Hirav Shah says, “It’s no secret that CEOs make a lot of money, more especially those of the biggest companies. They’ve climbed the company ladder to get the fancy office and dedicated parking spot or in some cases, their parents have handed the position over to them. You could say that being a CEO has its perks – which, of course, is quite an understatement. We’re well aware of the famous titans who have been at the top of the chains for what seems like a decade, from the likes of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to Tesla’s Elon Musk, but as technology keeps growing and evolving, so too are their bank balances. Persistence and hard work are essential ingredients that make a successful entrepreneur. But to be a CEO, it takes a certain level of charisma and instinct to lead your company and team towards success.”

Hirav Shah concludes by saying, “Inspiration isn’t very hard to come by in the business world. Head over to your local bookstore, and you’ll find hundreds of business books, all doling out different bits of advice on the same topics. But the right inspiration, from the right people is a little more difficult. Whether you’re interested in running your own business, or simply looking for leadership encouragement, great inspiration can steer you in the right direction.”
He adds, “Efforts for success in business are in our hand but sometimes not the final success. So take the help of the powerful tool of astrology which can really help in the success of a business. Foremost it lets you know whether you have the acumen to carry out the business. If you have the acumen, it lets you know the type of business you could profitably do. It helps you to decide when to expand and when not to. It warns you beforehand of an anti-Dasha or a period and also helps you keep your nerves. If you follow the detailed astrological advice offered by an able business astrologer, your business success is guaranteed.“
