Sandeep Nanu - Exiting the Rat Race
Sandeep talks about his first job as a WebDesigner and the lessons he learnt there, including the important of respecting your commitments to other and their time. We discuss his first company, CBeyond – his challenges in dealing with large corporations and his motivation to instead find a better way to work sustainably, which led him to start WriteClick eventually in 2010.
This is a really fun episode, which gives an insight into how Sandeep has prioritized living a fulfilling life over running a rat race. I love his principles!
