437: Ajay Prasad: Success Built On Failing Fast Failing Often

Ajay Prasad siteMy guest today, on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a guy who is a serial entrepreneur, successful business strategist and a marketing expert who before laying the foundation of his various successful entrepreneurial ventures, served organizations ranked among the top 10 of Fortune 500 companies.

The founder and president of GMR Web Team – a leading Orange County digital marketing agency dedicated to helping businesses maximize revenue from the Internet – Ajay also owns and operates GMR Transcription, a seven-figure web-based business and award-winning transcription and translation company which he founded in 2004 to fill a void in affordable and accurate transcription and translation services for writers, students, professors and businesses.

In the short span of a decade, the company has expanded its reach to include government institutions and non-profit organizations and has become a trusted partner to more than 9,000 clients across the globe.

So the key question to ask is, why does he feel that the entrepreneurial bug first bit him, or was it always an integral part of his character?

And does he see a path that others can duplicate, or is it simply the case of making it up as you go along?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Ajay Prasad.

Show Highlights

During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Ajay Prasad such as:

How in many ways it is hugely scary to start your own company, but by walking away from a great salary, has been so worthwhile in the long run.

Why it is so valuable and sensible to simply start a business on one thing that you are already good at. Not to try to be something for everyone.

How momentum is easy to achieve at the very beginning of building a business, but definitely flattens out later – Which is where the true effort starts.

Why his first businesses failed, due to running out of money after two years, and how it felt to have to return back to the corporate world.

and lastly….

Why he only judges his own success and failures by his own personal goals. Has he achieved them or not, not by comparing himself to what other people are doing.
