As an entrepreneur you should develop the insight, frameworks and support structures to know when to persevere and when to pivot.
Develop the right network of mentors, help is always available, don’t be afraid of asking for it.

Q: In todays fast changing business environment, how do you stay abreast of things?

It’s important to stay ahead and keep tabs of the space you are in. You should read a lot and talk to mentors a lot.
Also, it’s important to not get too worried about the shiny new development and try to pursue it. As an entrepreneur you should be saying “NO” more than “Yes”.
You have to equip yourself with some frameworks and thought processes to say “NO” meaningfully.

Q: In one sentence, what is the most important thing one has to do to be a great leader?

The quote that I love the most about leadership is “It never about YOU and its ALL about YOU”. The first part says, leaders focus on others and not on themselves. The second part says, change always starts with yourself.

Q: In one sentence, describe how important your customers are to your business?

Customers are extremely important. But, depending on the product/service you are building you have to be careful not to build everything for everyone. Build something critical and important for a few customers first.

Technology levels the playing field for our society. A lot of inherent biases that we knowingly or unknowingly carry are eliminated by the right use of technology.

Rejection is an important learning lesson. I always look to learn from it. Rejection can pull you down if you don’t have another client meeting lined up quickly. Lean from rejection but momentum is important, try to go after clients in batches.

Q: In one sentence, describe what your hiring philosophy is?

Always hire someone better than the last hire.

Q: In one sentence, describe how you keep your sanity in a competitive business environment?

My goals help me stay grounded. I clearly know how our services are different from our competition.Once I know what I am chasing, my competition doesn’t bother me much. Don’t try and build a bigger house than your neighbor, build a big enough house for yourself 🙂
