Sandeep Maheshwari’s rise through failures and adversities is inspiring! After consistent failures in several businesses, in 2000, he started pursuing his passion for photography without having any studio. In 2002, along with three people, he started a company which was closed within six months and in 2003 he published his book on marketing and began a consultancy firm but unfortunately failed again. Leaving all, he decided to pursue his passion regardless of the result and set up a studio at home. On success, he started expanding his business by hiring few photographers. In 2006 he started imagesbazaar.com with approximately 8,000 images captured by some photographers and thus his success story began. According to media reports, his company makes several million dollars in annual sales.
