Greetings NACOC Families!
Welcome to the opulent-October, the month of colors and richness for nature lovers, the month of trick & treats for kids, and also a big month for the game fans as NBA and NHL, both begin their season in October.
But more than anything, this is a very special month for us as we are having our 6th Annual Gala Dinner on October 30th. Please save the date and get your tickets to enjoy a Casino night, a fun-filled evening celebrating your presence and continuing support resulting Chamber's growth.
This special month we have a very special guest for you; a young leader who not only has amazed the DFW community through his vibrant entrepreneurial pursuit but also surprised himself being a relentless finder of his own potential.
Let's welcome Mr. L.B. Subba, a name that is rightfully connected to solar-power, the natural source of light and inspiration.
Please briefly tell us about yourself.
I'm a serial home-based business owner. I am always looking for ways to positively impact peoples' lives through my entrepreneurial journey. Currently, I run multiple home-based businesses under the umbrella of my company - Nembang Enterprise LLC and Nembang Properties LLC. One of my recent ventures is Solar Switcher - A solar broker-dealer business in the renewable energy industry.
Any area that you find most fulfilling?
I love helping others who want to become entrepreneurs and who are struggling to get started. In my free time, I read a lot of books about entrepreneurship and life.
What does entrepreneurship mean to you? What inspires you?
Entrepreneurship to me is the best way to serve the marketplace and make that dent in making this world a better place to live. To me, it is a perpetual quest of delivering solutions to the world.
Whenever I see something missing in a massively growing business niche, that instantaneously inspires me to do something about it. It is an igniting factor of all the business ventures that I've done so far.
Your expectation from community? /Chambers?
I'm a learner always looking to learn from others and our community and chamber has been that place where I get to meet other entrepreneurs and pick their brains apart from business networking.
Any mentor/s you have/had? Will you be one?
I believe one of the fastest ways to grow in entrepreneurship is to leverage experts and automation which I'm always longing for. In every business niche, I've entered so far, I've chosen to pay the full price and maybe a little more to have experts and mentors on my side. I also regard the author of some of the best books that I've read as my mentor. Few to name are Jim Rohn, Eric Worre, Brian Page, Grant Cardone, and the list goes on.
One thing I wished that I knew in my starting months/years of business- is the power of experts and automation in entrepreneurship. The only shortcut that I know which will help individuals become successful entrepreneurs is having experts from your business niche on your side and automating your business with optimal efficiency.
My favorite failure that made me stronger [who I am today]:
Dwelling in a small success and in a tiny market almost ruined my business and life back in 2016. So never get settled. Stay blissfully unsatisfied and anticipate bigger challenges in business and life. Remember, your size of income in your business is directly proportional to the size of the problem you solve. In addition, never stick with only one source of income irrespective of the size of it.
Fun thing about me/ or a habit that impacts my growth.
One thing about me that I believe directly impacts my growth is my tenacity to business ideas that I made a commitment to.
My favorite quote/book/movie/motivator?
One of my favorite books is Rich Dad Poor Dad. Movie "The Pursuit of Happiness'. The quote that motivates me the most " “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
2 tips for aspiring entrepreneurs?
1-Never be afraid of failure. Take a calculated risk and fail faster. That is one of the best ways to become successful.
2-Don't even think about cutting corners when it comes to paying the price for success. Leverage the experts and automation in your business niche in a full swing.
My message for young generation: is to stay open and do things that are out of their comfort zone. There is nothing rewarding in your comfort zone. As Neale Donald Walsh said, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. "
Thank-you Mr. Subba for your entrepreneurial pursuit to yourself and the DFW community. We wish you the best!
