How Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola Believes Aspiring Entrepreneurs Can Get Their Start


Branded Content by Cosmic Press

Starting a new business is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences. Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola says the experience of starting his first business while in college ignited a hunger in him to pursue more.   

Today, after following his heart and satiating that hunger within, Voccola is now the CEO of one of the largest IT management software companies in the world.  

Aspiring entrepreneurs can follow a similar blueprint for how Voccola achieved his success in business, as he points out below. 

Overcome Fear 

Entrepreneurs face many challenges on the road to success. It’s not easy owning and running your own business. If it were, everyone would do it.  

One of the biggest challenges entrepreneurs face is fear. There is a lot of risk in starting a new business, and with risk comes fear. 

There is a general fear of failure. There is fear of financial ruin. There is fear of not finding your way, of feeling lost. 

These are all legitimate feelings to have, the Kaseya CEO says, but successful entrepreneurs must not give into fear. Don’t let being afraid of risk cripple your life. 

Instead, overcome the fear by accepting that change is inevitable, and then embrace that change. After all, entrepreneurs are looking to change the world, in a way, through whatever endeavor they’re starting. 

Don’t Get Married to the Idea 

All new businesses start with an idea, but that idea may need to change and evolve from what it was in its infancy. In other words, entrepreneurs can’t get married to their original idea if it’s proven not to be effective. 

Fred Voccola says that many entrepreneurs might be so risk-averse that they become married to an idea, rather than focusing on how to make the idea better. These entrepreneurs refuse to make changes, refuse to deviate from the original plan, and refuse to improve. In essence, they are trying to prove that they were right from the beginning. 

Sometimes, making a slight adjustment here and there to a product, for example, will result in increased sales. If entrepreneurs aren’t open and willing to make those changes, though, they can often get stuck in the mud.  

So, instead of focusing on “being right” with your original idea, Voccola says entrepreneurs need to focus on “getting it right.” 

Fred Voccola Believes in the Power of Taking Risks 

All entrepreneurs must be willing to go out on a limb and take risks. They must be willing to take the road less traveled.  

That’s what enables Kaseya’s CEO to succeed. While the company is already the leader in providing unified IT management and security software, there is still a long way to go to reach its ultimate goal. 

Fred says, in fact, that the company is only one-third of the way through its journey, with the goal of having every managed service provider and small to medium-sized business use its IT Complete platform to manage their IT and security environments. 

The only way Kaseya will be able to accomplish that, according to Fred Voccola, is by taking risks. Only then will it be able to transform the industry, positively impacting its employees and benefitting its customers by doing so.
