After all, "you can prove anything by statistics except the truth." This is my story…
When I was 21, I got a break and accepted my very first job as a logistics analyst working for a consumer goods distributor in the Bay Area. I moved up the corporate ladder slightly. I worked at this company for 5 years learning valuable lessons of business and politics. After new management came into this company and fired my boss, I learned even more valuable lessons of how not to treat loyal employees. This company and I parted ways, but I am still thankful to them for giving me my first break and teaching me some valuable lessons.
I moved into a consulting position working for a small firm in the same neighborhood. I had an offer to work for a large firm based in India, but I had just settled down and bought a dog, so I passed it up to work at this small firm. The owner of this company taught me so much about consulting, customer service, technology, and more. He basically propelled my career. When I moved down to LA to be close to my family, I left this firm, though we remained business associates.
I then worked for a similar firm in OC. I stayed at this company for a couple of years and though I respect the CEO’s business prowess, I could not stay in a place with such high turnover. Staying positive through this experience, I learned what kind of company I wanted to make.
Each of these companies either looked down on me, told me I wouldn't be successful, or did not give me the opportunity to grow - their loss!
When I saw the market changing by businesses moving to the cloud, I founded AgileBTS. Today, I’m a young CEO with greater than a decade’s worth of business experience, a lifetime’s worth of technology experience, and I’m still learning each and every day how to build a more successful, more ‘Agile’ business of my own.
