72- Success secrets: Entrepreneur as an IT consultant and author

November 26th, 2008


In this episode of The Struggling Entrepreneur, we take a closer look into the transition from being a technical specialist in the IT (Information Technology) industry to becoming a successful Entrepreneur from the background and point of view of Anil Desai.

Even if you are not an IT Specialist, but perhaps you are in a field that requires technical skills or in an area of complex products or problem-solving, this interview will be of value to you for its related scenarios.

Anil Desai- Successful Entrepreneur as IT consultant

As you may remember, we had received permission from CS Techcast to publish an 11-minute overview interview with Anil Desai in our earlier episode 67.

However, in this episode, we take a detailed look at the preparation, planning and move from a full-time IT specialist in a day-job to becoming a full-time Entrepreneur. Also, you will hear the 3 bullets of success that Anil Desai gives us from his experience–and you will be surprised that super-technical skills are not the main keys to this future.

Anil shares with us the obstacles he encountered, as well as how he himself tackles the administrative responsibilities of running his own business–including income taxes and other back-office tasks that many structured IT specialists dread.

Anil also discusses how his skills in communication–especially in technical writing–have added to the success of creating himself as a known Brand. In addition, Anil is also an author of several books and a speaker, as well as a consultant that delivers the right solutions to the customers to solve business problems. He will tell you in this episode about his multiple certifications and the technical skills that he keeps current–but at very little or no cost!

However, Anil also shares with us his creative background–as a part-time musician and fictional writer.

We do apologize for the ambient noise that suddenly sprung in the background as we started the interview (it had been relatively quiet in the comfortable dining area until the lunch crowd suddenly appeared). But the noise did die down toward the second part of the interview.
