Kicking Your Job and Living Life of Your Dream with Entrepreneur Kiruba Shankar: TIT07

Kiruba Shankar had several reasons to settle down for an ordinary life. He got fired from his job when he needed it the most. He lost 10 Lakhs (1 Million) rupees in a deal where his client absconded after he delivered his commitment. But this man was never to give up trying to pursue his dreams. He says the best lessons of your life are learned when you are down and dusted. He sat down with me to share these hard learned lessons of his life in this episode.

Kiruba Shankar is an entrepreneur, speaker, author, a fellow podcaster and a farmer. He is the CEO of BusinessBlogging, a social media consultant firm. He also heads Vaksana Farms, a farming venture and a book publishing house. He has authored 4 books: ‘Copy Right and Left: Understanding Creative Commons‘, ‘Wikipedia – A Beginner’s Guide‘, ‘Crowdsourcing Tweet’ and ‘Unconference‘. He has been a technology columnist at The New Indian Express, Business Standard and Financial Express.

He is a professional podcaster and hosts Kiruba.TV where he interviews global achievers. BusinessWorld magazine once ranked his blog as one of India’s top blogs.

Some Questions I ask Kiruba:

  • Kiruba you are an entrepreneur, educator, podcaster and Farmer. How do you balance these all?
  • There are many people who don't know what their passion is and are not very excited about life. How can they find their passion? 
  • We have situations in our life where we need to make hard choices. How do we make these choices?
  • Out of all your achievements, what is it that you are most proud of?
  • You have interviewed and spoken to so many high performers from around the globe be it for your book, blog or podcast. What do you think drives them or fuels them?
