Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kuntal Warwick, Founder, and CEO of KSW Consulting, located in Yardley, PA, USA.

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

Our business is a combination of advising about and executing global marketing and communications. This can be program, campaign, and/or content development for individual companies or greater institutional efforts, like government agencies.

Tell us about yourself

I have been in marketing/communications for the better part of my 25-year career - the last 13 operating my own business. I love helping organizations tell their stories to a global audience, encouraging them to be creative and innovative and creatively solve problems together. I really enjoy the design part of my business, but increasingly, I have a younger generation execute these tasks while I focus on the larger strategy and campaign concepts. I’ve spent a lot of time in the education, diplomacy, and trade/development industries, and now just going into the tech innovation space.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

One of them has been working with so many different clients and partners - from small startups to larger government projects. I and those who have worked with me have seen so much, especially as we’ve helped young companies launch their businesses and enter their respective markets.

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

It’s all on you! That’s good and bad. It’s been personally challenging at times to allow others into your vision and trust that they’ll commit to helping you carry it out. There’s a whole other leadership element there that I’m still learning. Also, knowing when it’s time to call time on a project or effort and move on to new opportunities. These are all judgment calls that take time to learn.

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

  1. Be open to learning about your strengths and weaknesses, and adapt accordingly.
  2. Be open to new ways of doing things and opportunities.
  3. Understand that growth (financial and otherwise) is not always linear, but do your best to organize yourself and your systems for it.

Where can people find you and your business?
