I think it is so interesting to see how entrepreneur’s take their unique history and can use it as an asset. For so many of us, it seems that life includes bits and pieces that could be seen as fragmented or random.
But successful business men and woman, it seems, can take these seemingly random pieces and put them together to form one cohesive picture. This is the case with Brian Bonar, an entrepreneur that I recently read an article about. The article went into details about Bonar’s journey as an entrepreneur, and I found myself fascinated by the way he managed to use his history as an asset for business ventures.
For example, Brian Bonar has a passion for design and detail. I looked into it and found that he has a background in mechanical engineering, so it made sense to me that he is interested in product design and the fine details of his products.
I saw that has worked in fields that related to procurement of products through outsourcing. He even started a company that was the first to design and sell an SCSI based printer. He is taking his skills with design, and applying them to business models based around his passion for design. I found this very inspiring.
His experience as an entrepreneur also combines financial skills, knowledge about how systems and businesses work as a whole, and a keen sense of leadership. Learn more about Brian Bonar: http://bitsylink.com/2015/07/28/all-about-brian-bonar-leader-and-executive/
Recently, he was a recipient of the “Cambridge Who’s Who Executive of The Year in Finance” award, which is based on leadership, academics, and accomplishments. His abilities as an executive have not gone unnoticed.
I found it interesting that the company Brian Bonar founded, Dalrada Financial Corporation, is using Bonar’s background in finance and management. Bonar seems to be taking all of his knowledge, skills and abilities, and wrapping them up into a product that can help others. The article stated that, “Dalrada Financial Corporation gives clients a unique variety of employee programs that help increase the efficiency of business”.
As a businessman who has experience, Bonar is qualified to help other businesses examine their systems and processes as a whole. Not everyone can use a wide lens that encompasses so many aspects of business. It seems that Bonar has this ability.
Brian Bonar started out working for IBM, and held a position that gave him responsibility over ordering the parts for the motherboards that IBM was putting into computers. Bonar holds a masters in Mechanical Engineering, and during his time at IBM he functioned as a manager, giving him the first foundation blocks in what would become a long history of leadership roles.
Bonar went on to work for several other companies and then set out as an entrepreneur. He founded the Dalrada company, as well as several others.
