Hello world!

=”Hello”&” World!”

Don’t freak out. I am an excel enthusiast and I run my own company that sells excel related products and consulting. I will be writing about my journey as an entrepreneur in this blog.

If you are in India and would like to start your own web based business, then you may want to follow this blog.

  1. Well done Chandoo !! Welcome to freedom !!
    I’ve been an entrepreneur all my life – working for my family and then for myself, as well as working for small and large companies, and a multi-national telco.
    I know what I personally prefer, and at the moment it looks like I’m also going to be self-employed again – I can’t wait B-)

  2. Hi Chandoo, congratulations indeed for your entrance to the world of consulting (the definition of which is: an ocean of uncertainty punctuated by brief moments of panic), where you will surely find that “balance” you crave, for your creativity and your family. I would never forget having my two kids sleeping or having their milk while hanging from theid daddy’s (me) chest in a sling while he was furiously typing away calculations to feed their hungry mouths. I did consulting for 10+ years until the world’s recession wiped out my entire client portfolio. Now I still do some consulting, but I am also working for a state DOT as a structural engineer, 9-5 (strict, not like private sector, where 9-5 means 80 hrs / week). My kids are 6 and 4 now and every now and then I can sneak out and be with them during the day, but I miss those days.

    I don’t wish you good luck, as – to me – good luck is for the uninformed, the unprepared and the reckless. I have followed you at PHD for the past year and can attest that you are neither. I wish you much light to guard your step and much wisdom to listen to your beatuful family. Godspeed Chandoo.

  3. Hi Chandoo

    I am following your PHD for quite some time now. I am creating dashboards using your techniques and wow… I coudn’t image, I could do all of those cool stuff in excel. My excel capabilities have increased tremendously.

    I have a business proposal for you. I live in the US. I am an engineer with an MBA. I want to offer “innovation” services ( complete end to end : from idea generation, data analytics and visualization, innovation management, product development and project management) on the web for small to medium sized companies. I have a comprehensive business plan and all the underlying process with math models that help in the innovation process already mapped out. My business plan won some seed money at an entreprenuerial competition a couple of yrs ago. I do not have the technical expertise to develop online portals. I looked at PHP, MySQL, Joomla etc to get me started but I am not code savy. If you would be interested in this idea , I will be more than happy to discuss with you. We can develop and offer complete innovation services to companies in India and in the US. This will have a unique combination of data collection, analysis, visualization, decision making and project management. Let me know your thoughts. Contact me on my email above if you are interested.

    1. Steve… thank you so much for the offer. I am sorry for replying late. I have been busy with various activities like re-opening of excel school, doing some consulting and keeping chandoo.org up to date.

      I can do some consulting related to web development and online marketing. Please write to me at chandoo.d @gmail.com and we can take this forward.
