The entrepreneurial journey, given its endless permutations, is different for everybody. Though many roads run parallel, no two are exactly the same. Yet every now and again, they intersect – leading some into the arms of another at just the right moment.

Raj and Gabi’s fates intertwined — by mere happenstance — amid their entrepreneurial pursuits. Both having left behind promising careers, the duo joined forces to begin life anew untethered and unburdened by employment.

On her past as a paid employee, Gabi professed: “I chose something that was the thing I was supposed to do rather than the thing I really wanted to do.”

But launching an online business was not without its challenges.

The name of the game: Enter at your own risk; Success not guaranteed.

So why would two talented people with high-paying, “rockstar” jobs dare to throw it all away on the gamble of starting their own businesses.

We’ll give you a hint: ONTRAPORT may have had something to do with it.
