In episode 207 of The Just Checking In Podcast we checked in with entrepreneur Sunil Jindal.
Sunil is also an old school friend of our Founder Freddie Cocker.
Sunil is the Founder of The Ping Pong Society, a company which offers businesses and their staff bespoke one-hour long events to give them a taste of table tennis in a fun and accessible way.
He is also the Co-Founder of MAGIC, a fitness-technology company which sells unique Mirrors, powered by AI that serve as your own personal fitness trainer.
The products have been endorsed by a range of celebrities in sport and fitness including former England Men’s Cricket captain Alistair Cook.
He’s also done feature interviews with media outlets including The Evening Standard and The Financial Times to promote the company alongside his co-founder Varun.
In this episode we discuss Sunil’s business journey, from his origins as a school ‘hustler’, founding and co-founding two successful businesses and the challenges of going on those journeys, from setting them up, to work-life balance and taking risks.
For Sunil’s mental health, we discuss the anxiety of running a business and how that can seep into his own personal mental health.
We also discuss how he was quite shy and introverted as a child, navigating that in secondary school and sixth-form and how the businesses forced him to come out of his shell and flex those social muscles in order to get the word out there about his brands.
As always, #itsokaytovent
