Check out the interview:
- What gave you the idea to start YourDailyTasks? Share your story.
Well, It all started in 2007 when one of my friends from Alaska, US asked me to work for him as a freelancer. I did work on his project for more than one year and discovered a bright future in this field. He introduced me with his few friends and get me some work from those guys. I was not even financially able to get my own laptop and I was working from an Internet café for him. I left my current job because of this and working for him 4 hours a day. I did this for 2 months and got a new laptop to work from home. It took me a week to convince my father to get me a laptop. I remember, it was Sunday; I bought my new laptop and new Internet connection. I started working in the night. On the very first night I did work on my own laptop, I decided to start my own company to help all small and Mid-size entrepreneurs like my friend.
