The Story Behind our Success
“Be ready to build a door when opportunity knocks!!
When you dare to dream, you should have the courage & gumption to make them a reality.” – Lincoln Bennet Rodrigues
Entrepreneurship is a fantastic journey of heart and mind, embarked only by those who have an insatiable need to challenge the status quo of life as it has been. Swathed in the comfort of secure jobs and incredibly high, steady income, life as it had been may have been demanding, but the routine was at least known and predictable.
Fate or destiny, but more reliably faith to take the uncharted roads had begun to beckon the brothers Lincoln & Lindsay, quite determinedly. The elixirs of success or negotiating nadirs of failures while treading through unbeaten paths to seek and conquer the distant horizons, knocked more resolutely each day.
The fact is nothing is yours to decide once the journey has been embarked. You cannot slowdown or stop at your own volition because, along the way, you have picked up men and women who sought you out as a leader and have full faith in you. You are the untamed horse racing ahead in all its glory against the wind in the vast expanse of an unknown landscape. The only thing that accompanies you is the untamed belief that I can – that WE can, and we MUST!
There are no short- cuts allowed. Days, weeks, and months fly by internalizing the thrill and euphoria of the initial ground-breaking events. Each day ending each day with a reminder, “We damn well be sure we were right.”
Circa 2009, the Brothers, Lincoln Bennet Rodrigues, and Lindsay Bernard Rodrigues laid the first of the many bricks that would help build their vision into reality.
The vision simply put, is a promise to better the lifestyle of every person who would interact with Bennet and Bernard as our customer, whether external or internal. Done by taking on ventures, they would be the best in.”
The brothers have since worked relentlessly towards this vision every day.The poise of braving the unknown, was going to be a reliable friend for the first- generation entrepreneurs.
Lincoln Bennet Rodrigues & Lindsay Bernard Rodrigues have a death-or-glory attitude to business. The never-tired approach of being the best version of what they and the business can be every single day. To deliver sui generis luxury to the connoisseurs and in doing so, surpassing the known norms. In reality, this could very well be the essence to anyone who wants to have an affluent lifestyle.
