Thank you so much for giving us your time! Before we begin, could you introduce yourself to our readers and take us through what exactly your company does and what your vision is for its future?
Ronald Williams: I’m Ronald Williams, founder of Best People Finder ( https://bestpeoplefinder.com/). Best People Finder is a B2B SaaS offering public records search services. And for its future, we are going to implement AI automation technologies to scale it further in a growing competitive market. With this, I believe it will be easy to work on good ideas and new projects that would emerge and grow progressively with AI automation, resulting in tremendous growth.
NO child ever says I want to be a CEO/entrepreneur when I grow up. What did you want to be and how did you get where you are today?
Ronald Williams: Though no child says he wants to be a CEO while he grows up, he has inspirations that define his destiny. Similarly, I have always had aspirations to do something different. One thing I am sure of, I never thought about doing a job. However, I took courses and training before I plunged into entrepreneurship to equip myself with the current trends and industry knowledge. This made a difference and helped me to reach where I am at today.
Tell us something about yourself that others in your organization might be surprised to know.
Ronald Williams: I stay motivated by visualizing the future and also by planning for it because it’s a proven fact that all those entrepreneurs who have a vision of where they want to go, stay productive and motivated while achieving great results.
Many readers may wonder how to become an entrepreneur but what is an entrepreneur? How would you define it?
Ronald Williams: I believe being an entrepreneur means having a considerable amount of expertise, focus, discipline, and diverse business experiences to innovate to be disruptive in a more competitive market. It is not about merely holding a title, but it involves being responsible to take the company in the right direction, knowing the business, and having the initiative to capitalize on opportunities.
This is essential for the entrepreneur to guide his daily conduct and to be able to plan, diligently, the future of the organization. It also means gathering human talent with the required expertise for the company’s growth and a more focused approach to expanding the operations and processes to create a positive organizational culture. For this all to happen, the entrepreneur must have vigor at work, be calm to deal with pressure, and have creative ideas to ensure an advantage over their competitors to disrupt the business.
What is the importance of having a supportive and inclusive culture?
Ronald Williams: Without having a supportive and inclusive culture, organizations, regardless of size and domain, can’t scale. It is due to a supportive and inclusive culture that organizations eliminate biased attitudes, eradicate ego-centric decisions, and prevent bureaucracy and micromanagement to let flourish good work culture
How can a leader be disruptive in the post covid world?
Ronald Williams: Disruption is a marvel of creativity. In a post covid world, a leader can disrupt the competitive market with new possibilities of products or services.
If a 5 year old asked you to describe your job, what would you tell them?
Ronald Williams: Describing one’s job to a 5-year-old kid is a bit tough and interesting as well. I would tell that I run a company that solves people’s problems and comes up with unique solutions to ease customers.
Share with us one of the most difficult decisions you had to make for your company that benefited your employees or customers. What made this decision so difficult and what were the positive impacts?
Ronald Williams: Shifting to a fully remote business model was one of the most difficult decisions for me. Several factors made this decision difficult such as the need for collaboration, employee engagement, etc. In addition, transitioning your company to a fully remote workplace is not like a “one-solution-fit-for-all-types” rather it is a process that takes time to perfect since nothing is defined accurately yet.
The positive impacts of shifting to a remote business model include reduced operational costs and non-strategic costs, flexibility for employees, and a better understanding of working with fewer resources thus generating more profits.
Leaders are usually asked about their most useful qualities but let’s change things up a bit. What is your most useless talent?
Ronald Williams: Understanding people’s expectations is my useless talent. It is because in current business scenarios, though one understands what people expect, one can’t meet the expectations fully. That is why I believe this is a unique talent but is useless.
Thank you so much for your time but before we finish things off, we do have one more question. If you wrote a book about your life until today, what would the title be?
Ronald Williams: “Never Yield-you are not destined to become a failure”.
