Always question your own decisions and strive to make them better. No decision is perfect but the decision is all yours. – Anil Jwalanna
Anil’s passion and drive helped him to be successful as an entrepreneur. Without the passion and can-do attitude, he would not be where he is today. He thrives on the roller coaster life of the entrepreneur; six days down with one awesome day that makes it all worth it. Anil spoke about finding what’s needed in the world and create your product based on that “gap.” Success Habit: Continue to hear the process and question my decision again and again.
Anil’s One Idea
Anil was in the corporate world for 15 years. He discovered challenges in supporting business employees in sales and marketing. Anil found a gap in the industry with giving the right information to sales and marketing needed to do their job. He came up with his business idea to provide an easier way to obtain necessary information, he found that the same problem existed across all other domains like hiring, customer support and the like. “WittyParrot” was born because he wanted to help make other peoples’ lives better.
WittParrot is a knowledge productivity platform. It’s automated, organizes all your information into one area, enabling you to create personalized, custom communications across multiple channels (social media, email, et cetera). When you take the time to personalize your communication, you directly influence your prospect and they tend to respond 10 to 15% more than by using a general communication format.
♦ When you’re looking to establish a start up business, look for entrepreneurs who have done it before, with end-to-end experience. They understand what it takes.
♦ All advisors have good intentions with their advice, but circumstances and environment is specific to each person. It can’t be generalized. Every person’s situation is unique. In the end, the decision must be made by you.
♦ If you’re moving forward, you must be aware of the unexpected that will occur. What worked before may not work going forward.
