Founder & Managing Director, Commit Network
Most people quit their consulting jobs at McKinsey after many months of
soul searching and rigorous comparison of numerous corporate opportunities. So, when I quit McKinsey in 2009 to “become an entrepreneur” without a clear long-term plan, many thought that I had made
a major career mistake.
My McKinsey colleagues had a hard time understanding how I could take on such a risk with a wife and new baby to support. My friends thought that the first step after the Firm was the most important in one’s career and that I should have taken a director or CXO position in a tech company instead of founding my own startup.
On most accounts, my choice to
let go of a dream career and guaranteed income and benefits as a consultant seemed like a mistake. Yet, I would make that mistake all over again if given the chance. The truth is that the best reason for invention is necessity. Without fully facing the risks of being an entrepreneur, I would not have met the people that I met, I would not have had the ideas that I had, and my company Commit would not have shaped as it did. Thus, my advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is often summarized in one
