About Me

I am Raj Dhonota.

For two decades, I've ridden the rollercoaster of entrepreneurship, earning millions and losing millions. My path has been through the high-stakes arena of cutting-edge ventures, filled with exhilarating highs and heart-breaking lows. But the game changes now. After the latest twist in my journey, I'm steering a new course: my last venture, in the US, based on my experiences over the last 20 years.

The Successes

Over the last 20 years I have worked at the coal face of business pioneering, scaling, and exiting ventures across e-commerce, tech, real estate, services, networking, recruiting, fashion, and consumer products. I've notched successes in multiple sectors and empowered hundreds of entrepreneurs, some of whom have made millions themselves.

Diving deep into the nitty-gritty of diverse industries has armed me with insights and expertise that only come from getting your hands dirty.

The Setbacks

I've thrived where the odds were stacked against me—a stark 20% shot at success by government stats. Failure wasn't just possible; it was part of the deal. But here's the thing: success and risk go hand in hand. Facing down failure, learning from the missteps, and powering through with grit—that's the real path to victory.

The Struggles

Success is a zigzag, not a straight line. In the high-stakes game of risky ventures, it often feels like battling more losses than wins. Missteps draw critics, and not every shot lands. While struggles are a given in this chosen path and complaints are not my style, the real sting comes when teammates, clients and loved ones get caught in the crossfire. Those personal challenges hit hardest. Despite efforts to shield them, sometimes, it's just not enough.

The Future - Watch It Live!

I set the bar high for myself—driven, focused, relentless. Launching a business in the U.S. has always been a goal of mine, and now, it's finally happening. Over the past year, I've been meticulously crafting a venture tailored for the American market. This venture will capture all my attention for the foreseeable future—I'm dedicating the next five years to ensure its success. What's more, you can watch the journey LIVE!

My Philosophy

Success favours the bold.
As Goethe said:

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.


The reality about failure

Failure or setbacks are never easy. They challenge you deep inside. When you accept the limiting belief that failure simply equals failure, this is when you truly fail. However, if you accept that setbacks will happen, and face them with resilience and an open-mind to grow, then setbacks simply become the deep roots which allow success to blossom.

My outlook on success

Success is never a straight line. It’s subjective and comes in all forms. It’s more about your outlook or how you feel, rather than something that can be measured or compared. For me, success should never be ‘achieved’ – it should be a moving goal that drives you on to improve each and every part of your life, whether personal or business.
