Electrosoft, an award-winning federal IT and professional services firm, announced today that its CEO, Dr. Sarbari Gupta, is a featured guest on the DC Local Leaders Podcast. In the episode, host Phillip K. Naithram interviews Gupta about starting a one-person company 20 years ago and her experience growing the business to more than 100 employees today.
“I always wanted to do something on my own, but it’s hard to find the courage to start something on your own … when you have a good-paying job and the money’s coming in,” Gupta shares early in the interview.
The episode, which airs August 31, touches on Gupta’s daily prioritizations to support creativity and productivity; how she has balanced family and entrepreneurship over her career; and how her yoga and breathing routine sets up her days for success. “Especially when running a business, there is always stress,” acknowledges Gupta. “Yoga and pranayama breathing is a calm way to start the day. When things come at me all day long, I can deal with it.”
When sharing her experience and advice about who to hire, Gupta stated, “The most significant employee I hired was a VP of Operations. … As the company grows, it’s easier to attract the kind of quality personnel and leaders that you want for your team.”
In the DC Local Leaders Podcast, the host interviews leaders, goal setters and change makers within government, military and technology with an aim of “helping us grow 1% better each day.”
