Wise Words from Comrade’s CEO, Ivan:
Referring to aspirant businessmen, who are planning to step into this market segment, Ivan advised that they should never try to hop onto a bandwagon and ride the wave of trends; this will lead them to ultimate failure. They should do the things they are passionate about.
When somebody is certain about his passion, he should never quit. “When you do find what you love, work tirelessly and consistently on it. Don’t take shortcuts and remind yourself that each failure is a benchmark closer to success,”
Ivan credited the success of the company to his team. “Every member of our team is an integral part of CWA.”
Everyone brings unique traits and skill sets to Comrade. “When you share and expand on those qualities, you foster a very tight-knit and functioning work environment.”
