In today’s world, you have to be willing to put yourself out there and try new things and gain experience. It is the best way to get ahead, learn from the wins and the losses, and become a more complete person. One person that has never been shy about trying things and putting himself out there is Sanjay Shah Denmark. He has a zest for life that is unparalleled by anyone out there. He is the type of person that when he wakes up, he is ready to tackle whatever the day brings him and go at it full throttle.
This is a man in Sanjay Shah that actually used to study medicine. He gave that a go and while that was a valuable life experience and a teaching tool, he realized it really wasn’t for him and he decided to become an accountant and while an accountant, he worked for some of the biggest investment banks out there in Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley. Again, he made connections, built friendships, and made an impression. Everywhere he goes, he leaves a mark on the company and that mark is positive.
Still, he felt there was something else out there for him and something more to do. He figured out he wanted to start his own brokerage firm and he did that with Solo Capital. It is quite evident that he is always evolving, adapting, and rolling with the times. You won’t find too many people that have gone from the field of medicine into banking. However, as they say, variety is the spice of life. Now, along with his wife Usha, they are hosting Autism Rocks, and this will be the third year in a row they have hosted the event.
The purpose of the event is to help others learn a little bit more about autism and raise some money to help the cause as well.
