A new beginning again

Mark is sitting near the seashore and watching the sun set… end of another year..

Mark had a turbulent 2016.. his startup crashed… he had quit a job in 2013 and even got invested.. however burnout took toll.. his staff also have decided to quit..

His fiance Julie rushes from behind and hugs him tightly…

Mark smiles weakly..

Julie ‘common Mark.. it is not end of world.. you tried.. you failed… but do you know one important aspect of life.. the sun will rise again tomorrow.. you will again have a good morning so now.. please gear up for new year eve’

Mark ‘the sea waves calm my mind… Wish to give an important tip to startups’

Mark ‘if you are down and out.. do give a big hug to your girl friend or spouse and say a big sorry for neglecting them’

Julie hugs Mark tightly and gives a big laugh

Julie ‘and please be sure if your cofounders, staff really wish to be part of startup ecosystem or they are seeking only jobs else every year will be a fruitless new beginning so do disrupt and bring team innovations’

 

 

Startup.. Startup… Startup

Startup

Searching.. and Search.. keep searching the right business model dear for your venture…

Make assumptions of what should work.. paying assumptions.. non paying assumptions

Startup…

Just make max 5 features.. 1 should rock too… and complete it in less then a week time…

Startup

Do a market research of that minimum viable product for the next 4 weeks….and test those assumptions

2 weeks – no paying model

2 weeks – paying model

You will realize how you can at least attempt entrepreneurship

Confused Monkey

A monkey saw too many people around it.. clicking photo and so on..

A dollar note fell on him..  Suddenly he found the family worried trying to reach out to dollar

Monkey realized there is some miracle in that note.. So next time.. he saw a pocket in one person’s shirt.. with dollar popping out..

Monkey picked that dollar and ran off.. again he found worried face..

slowly and surely monkey began collecting as many notes as possible..

At night monkey was fiercely guarding the notes.. till he found a person paying dollar for food..

Monkey ‘in jungle we are not taught to pay for food.. what the heck it is’

Monkey went to the shop and pranced..

the shop keeper scared.. ran off.

Monkey picked up all packets which he could and ran away

Soon it became a habit

Now Monkey has food and money too…

One night monkey saw a person praying to god and even giving 1$ alm to poor person

Monkey ran to that person

The person began hitting stones at Monkey

Monkey angrily began throwing food packets at the beggar

Beggar suddenly started praying to monkey

Monkey is confused… it has notes, it has food and now some one is praying too

Monkey goes back to tree and wonders ‘why these creatures so always worried?’

 

Santa Claus

I kept moving back and forth wondering how PASSION got initiated exactly on Christmas day… 18 years back…  a strong desire to achieve an object and seek security from that object..

Whether it is a mother or father or even a kid or may be a young jobless youth.. all are in quest to acquire something…

Passion play is a dramatic presentation depicting the Passion of Lord Christ. It has been in existence for many centuries.

There needs to be sense of forgiveness and acceptance to whatsoever happens..

Santa Claus here is an Angel Investor who decides to give small surprise gifts to entrepreneurs on Christmas eve…

Santa ‘not sure who gave me this name.. but then being generous is what Angels are supposed to be’

Group of Investors look at Santa with surprise

Investor Tom ‘Santa.. paying 10000US$ to around 100 entrepreneurs.. all in span of 1 night

Santa ‘so what.. may be morning time 50% of it will be blown to dust’

Sandra ‘ridiculous.. Angels are meant to get ROI too’

Santa ‘we need to give away…

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine, continue in them: for in doing this though shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee

Santa ‘be an example dear.. of a good soul who knows to practice entrepreneurship or being an investor.. a successful one too.. and once you practice.. you need to preach too.. you need to impart the lessons to the world… so SAY WHAT YOU DO.. DO WHAT YOU SAY..  a beautiful concept embraced by ISO standards too’

Santa ‘By doing so… you will enjoy and get awards at some point of time in your life  and hence you save yourself from doing anything wrong and by preaching so.. by guiding many.. you will ensure others get rewarded too’

Investor Harris is a bit taken aback by this…

Harris ‘common.. why are you trying to teach us again something which we understand is part of life’

Santa ‘nothing much.. just thought of gifting you those phrases again’

Next day.. the entrepreneurs rush to meet Santa

Entrepreneurs ‘Sir.. why is your term sheets not complicated?’

Santa ‘dear ones..  I slogged my life and had this big venture of mine.. and when profit began.. i decided to do charity… so being generous and gifting ones at random basis.. nothing much..’

Entrepreneurs ‘Sir.. how I wish we really understood the word Angel’

Back to present day

I have not made huge profits but I do believe in giving and sharing and this is where PASSION FRAMEWORK comes in.. so hope it keeps entertaining, educating and guiding as many folks as possible and PASSION actually came to me as flash of light 2 decades earlier and never realized it would evolve further as a framework then a blog which explains entrepreneurship using stories, poems and even experiments with science and theories of life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas love

Nancy is in love with Geff and wishes to surprise him on Christmas.

She just realized she is pregnant and as Geff is her boss and manager, and they do understand that Nancy will rear the kid and Geff will only support her.. so it seems a perfect arrangement till…

Geff ‘Nancy.. my wife has got a whiff of our affair.. I think we will need to break’

Nancy ‘common.. I never tried to snatch you from her.. so’

Geff ‘I too am getting a bit stifled..  somewhere in our startup.. all are aware of our relation.. including investors so it becomes a big problem’

Nancy ‘pain, endurance, compassion all for a cause..  our love dear’

Geff ‘extremely sorry..’

Nancy is left high and dry.. and has tears in her eyes

1 year later

Margret ‘Geff… a baby boy.. I adopted.. ‘

Geff ‘common.. why at this age’

Margret ‘love sometimes tends to fear and have more surprises for you this year’

Geff ‘what is it?’

Margret ‘Adopting the boy’s mom too’

Geff ‘common.. hope you are in senses’

Margret ‘am in full senses.. she will visit us on Christmas day’

on 25th

Geff opens the door and finds Nancy

Geff is shocked

Margret greats Nancy

Margret ‘Geff… always remember compassion is all about accepting even strangers with love.. forgiving a sin has given me sort of salvation.. and as long as we human realize our boundaries.. I think all will go well.. am not saying you guys committed sin.. but why a kid should suffer..  when you run startup.. atleast learn the basic of not to disown the mentor and the baby in one go.. you removed your most trustworthy technical resource and literally..’

Nancy ‘I wanted to surprise him.. but’

Geff has drop of tears in his eyes

Margret ‘Merry Christmas guys.. stop brooding and if relations get expanded.. for whatsoever reasons.. welcome them’
