Praveen started PM-by-PM in 2016. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on PM-by-PM?
I had an entrepreneurial bug right from my college days. I dabbled into a few businesses while working as an employee but did not see much success.
Before venturing into my current business, I worked in diverse business environments viz. product development, services & support, product-oriented services, and software as a service. I traveled extensively and was exposed to many different cultures. I worked and interacted with clients from different geographies viz. USA, Europe, and India.
I gained expertise in project management through my work.
I took a mid-career shift in the year 2008 and started doing freelance project management activities. In the process, I conducted a few project management workshops.
Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. I believe one should recognize their weak points and work on them. It is never a good idea to brush something under the carpet.
I think I have a natural inclination for training and coaching, so I started concentrating only on the training. Over the years, I mentored & formally trained many successful individuals in the finer aspects of practical project management.
I started writing my blog in the year 2014. I wanted to enhance my reputation in the professional training world. The blog certainly helped my training business but it did much more than that. In about a year, the blog started attracting visitors from all over the Globe.
From here on, I started learning about blog monetization and Internet marketing. This transformed my classroom training into an online business. Today, I sell my own eBooks and market third-party project management training programs through my blog.
