Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Robert Moutal, Co-Founder of Clarity Wave, located in San Diego, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We are a software company that specializes in Employee Engagement and Motivation, as well as Team Development and Performance. Our clients range from small businesses to large enterprises in all industries and all over the world.

Tell us about yourself

I'm the Co-Founder and Director of Sales. Prior to Clarity Wave, I worked in the TV and Radio industry for over 17 years, both in creative capacities and general management. The management of more than 100 employees gave me many insights into how to listen to them and find out what they need to be satisfied at work.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Being able to bounce back after the pandemic destroyed 85% of our sales.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

I have to wear so many hats and do things completely out of my wheelhouse.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Don't quit.
  2. Adapt and pivot quickly.
  3. Brace for a roller coaster ride.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Owning a business can be a bittersweet experience. Along with the freedom that comes with being one's own boss also comes the responsibility of taking care of other people. With many successes also comes many failures, and one has to have the stomach fortitude to keep going in the face of adversity.
