Tanuj Kalia, CEO of Lawctopus, Shares His CV of Failures!

The CV of Failures series of Lawctopus aims to bring out stories of failures behind people’s successes. In our latest post we have Tanuj Kalia, CEO and Founder of Lawctopus (and a host of other initiatives such as Noticebard, Lawctopus Lawctopus School, Clatalogue etc… the list is quite long), sharing his CV of Failures.

When we look at Tanuj, we see a successful (serial) entrepreneur, someone for whom things would have always somehow worked out magically. However, he reminds us that it isn’t always like this.

He provides us a glimpse of the things that didn’t go according to plan and tells us that is ‘OK!’ to fail.

Find his CV of Failures below.

We are glad that more stories are coming out of people talking about their failures. You could read other stories from this series here:

  1. CV of Failures- Introduction

  6. CV of Failures of Mustafa Rasheed, Head of Strategy & Development, Lawctopus Law School

We need to bring out more stories so that people who feel apprehensive have an outlet to talk and relate to. If you are somebody who could openly share your failures in public, please do so. If you want to do so under anonymity, that also works. You could make a CV (with your failures) and send it to us, or write about experiences from your life. Please get in touch at umang.poddar@lawctopus.com.

  1. Come on Tanuj, you say it’s an unforgettable-for-a-lifetime memory, but, in the same breath, you say you don’t remember the day, wait, even the year when it actually happened! Are you being less than honest? You mean you remember the day only because of a broken bone? Or a bruised soul? Or a never-again angova – by the sound of it – I mean?;);)
