Recognizing Bhanu Choudhrie as a man of principal, entrepreneurial spirit and vision, the online publication Ideamensch asked him to an interview recently (see: “Bhanu Choudhrie — Founder of C & C Alpha Group,” May 10, 2019 https://ideamensch.com/bhanu-choudhrie/ ). Following are a few excerpts from this discussion.
On bringing a winning idea to life —
Bhanu finds it ‘invaluable’ to surround himself with a great team of people who, together, move an idea from conception to fruition.
One habit that makes you a productive entrepreneur —
Exercise. Committing to a regular workout doing something I enjoy, like boxing or working out at the gym. This allows for clearing of the mind, re-setting priorities and re-focusing energies.
One thing you do continually and recommend to other entrepreneurs —
Continue to educate yourself. Read. Keep up on what is happening around the world in your field. This will help you find new opportunities as they arise.
