Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal and business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Michael Sahota, Founder of SHIFT314, located in Dartmouth, MA, USA.

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

Business Agility and Leadership Training. Organizations are interested in moving to an Agile way of working to be more adaptable and productive.

Tell us about yourself

I learned how I was getting in my own way, working with people and organizations to make things better. I was failing to create the outcomes I wanted and kept looking for better ways of doing it. More importantly, the inner shift of being needed to interact differently. I am always open to learning and discovering myself and how systems of people operate.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My business partner and wife have created the SHIFT314 Evolutionary Framework (SELF) that gives leaders the map and tools to shift to more evolved ways of living and working. It's a systematic and coherent answer to how I can be a better leader and human being to create radically better outcomes.

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

Tackling the things that I don't like doing. For example, marketing and networking.

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

Figure out what you love to do and do that. Find good people to cover the rest of the business's needs and roll up your sleeves and do the things that need to get done with a smile on your face.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

A lot of the time, we believe what we have been told -that change is not possible. It is. You can change anything about yourself ... you just need the right tools and support.

Where can people find you and your business?
