Tell us about yourself

I am Sunil Kumar, and I have 12+ years of experience in design. I was inclined to design things since my childhood and then started freelancing during my college. It was like my hobbies converted into my profession. I worked for some companies full-time, and today, I am the owner of an IT company. I got motivation by the latest trends in this industry, new tools, and especially how artificial intelligence changes the way of working in my design field.  The best thing I learned is to keep one day in a week "nontech day," which means no mobiles, tv, internet, or clients. On that day, I prefer to go to parks, shopping, walk, play with kids, visiting people.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I earned 1000s of contacts over social media. I visited a few countries to meet my clients. I am a mentor and connect with 4000+ students. I achieved good financial success too.

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

The biggest challenge is to make a balance between doing business and keep improving my skills. Mostly, my time was spent finding good talent and keep running a business.

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

  1. Gain skills in the field in which you want to start your business because only money can't guarantee success.
  2. Keep a balance between your work and personal life. It will motivate you and your business. If you decide to work 8 hours per day, stick to it. After 8 hours, do not work.
  3. Don't jump on any business. First, do a job on similar companies and learn the process. Get skills. Get the experience of everything that help your own future business plans.
