Click below to listen to the episode
This is the second part of the interview that I had with the “Relentless Entrepreneur”, Kalpesh Patel. I really do hope that you enjoy the first part as it was sprinkled with so many golden nuggets that you may apply to your own life or to your business.
Kalpesh Patel has decades of experience, and since they say experience is the best mentor, he shares them with us so that we too learn from them. He is truly an inspiring entrepreneur, and what is significant about him is that he is still very humble, down to earth regardless of his successes through the years.
In this episode, we talked about how he brought Les Brown to the UK, what he did to make it possible, and how successful was it.
We also get to discuss how Kalpesh deals with work-life balance. He shared that although you need to spend time with the people you love, your family, it is also important that when you have a passion that needs to be delivered to the world, you really have to do it.
He then shares that he does not believe in the old school way of thinking that in order to pursue your passion, you have to give up everything. Instead he says that BALANCE is key because life in itself is unpredictable.
We also tackled the importance of leverage, and how it helps you and your business grow.
Kalpesh tell us what he is up to (business-wise) at the moment where he also discusses the importance of creativity, and innovation when going to business, which includes his latest venture, crowdfunding for tech ideas.
His latest business is a crowdfunding concept and he explains how this works and how individuals/groups/organisation with great potential ideas can seek help from Kalpesh’ team, and how the public can join Kalpesh in order to help turn these ideas into reality.
