Sign of old age

A white streak of hair (Side locks) and white streak of hair above..

white haired guys.. all ok with us..

sign of old age is where we either think of gracing and embracing old age gracefully

or just forget about those hair streaks and just go ahead and color your hair

and hit the gym and keep feeling youthful always..

startup DEMO precisely focuses on OLD AGE woes and has over 100 aunties and uncle uniting and identfying opportunities to defeat old age ..(No sex, No romantic endeavors.. it is all about clean companionship in group celebrating happiness together..

DEMO has got funded recently and needless to say the founder LISA is also greying but has defeated it through oodles of fish curries, crabs and it seems eating sea food can defy ageing.. she looks so beautiful even though she is 40.

 

Gift to someone

Gift to someone

Not by money

Not by articles

Not by ornaments

Not by real estate

But by insurance policy

Gift someone the same

For not today

But for future

(Have observed many parents in US living with no insurance policy..  no risk cover.. they have come as guests to meet their kids and.. no cover.. why so.. not sure.. but unless we do not change our own mind set to care for people genuinely, all these mother’s day, father’s day, valentine day, brother’s day, father’s day everything gets meaningless as the intention has to be genuine care and love.. it needs to be through helping that individual get secured eventually.

Entrepreneurs in quest of building companies at times neglect their families. so please do take care of your family well.

 

Social Media marketing

If wishes were horses, every word has a potential to get VIRAL..

STARTUP MANTRA for day is ”just keep pushing.. you will find your own space”

Twitter Guru Joy put this and had 100000 likes

Raj Mark put it and he has 100 likes

Rahim put and had 0 likes

What makes the difference

Guru has many connects, trusted followers and fans.. and yes at times uses paid service too 🙂

RajMark has multiple family friends so gets an assured 100 likes

Rahim is a new entrant, not knowing what is best for him, so he just decides to ask Guru to push his page.. he tags along Guru… soon his one liners too get noticed

Rahim ‘Guru.. you can create news out of nothing”

Guru ”yes.. I just made a news item AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY return back again and it has got over 200000 likes

love can sing

Love can sing in a bathroom

Love can sing in an empty room

Love can sing in an open garden

So whomsoever falls in room,

one of the symptoms is to

catch them mumbling in bathroom, open garden or an empty room

and with dabs of smiles, selfies and bliss ful thought of

receiving some sweet nothings in form of song from their beloved

so what if the lyrics only has word love and hugs and kisses

whatsoever they are.. still they bring blush to face

and a heat filled to want more of such words as lyrics in a song

 

 

Why do startups fail?

Startups is not about only getting right founders, right mentors and right incubators to scale up, but it is more about a research on arriving at a business model for an idea. The business model needs to be a paying one or impactful.

We find multiple startups imitating and the clones too get successful somewhere only because the investors prefer investing in safe bets.

No one risks an innovation till it is proven. This leads to innovation moved back to government funded initiatives or individuals who are seriously committed to innovations and give grants.

Almost startups globally fail as any thing in excess becomes a waste. How many startups can we have in mobility space or e-commerce or wallet or anything for matter. The unique differentiator is missing

What should be an ideal cost of experimentation?

Create a market base through need and subsequently just have 1 feature MVP (Minimum viable product feature) and push it in market.. If it succeeds, you add more modules.

Startups fail because of too much focus on either technology or marketing and the right balance is missed out.. Apart from that for strange reasons mentors/advisors are paid /not paid at all.. or even in board, may get may be 0.5% etc, so it is not a lucrative proposition for them.. So next time another startup gets into a graveyard, it is not because an entrepreneur failed, it is because the market validation was inadequate and the competency skills to scale it up needed more attention.

 

 

IDLI

Saraswati toils her day making Idli’s and selling it in various locations of Chennai.. at 10cents  for 2 Idli’s.   One day..

Rick ”isn’t it weird.. everywhere I see these white puffed food and people eating it.. Let’s have one’

He stops at a stall ‘give me IDALY’

Rick’s friend Ramu begins laughing.. Not IDALY.. It is IDLI

Rick gobbles two. for Rs6 and finds it amazing..

Rick ‘who is the owner of this’

The stall person informs ”Saraswati”

Rick ‘wow.. I will want to have this in US”

Saraswati informs in Tamil ”it will not sell there.. who will make the dough.. who will make the puffed rice.. cookers are not in vogue in US”

Ramu translates to Rick

Rick ”no worries.. we will make Idli packs and send it as breakfast.. but I want you there”

Saraswati ”how is it possible.. visa etc”

Ramu ”do not worry Sir, many South Indians  out there in US. we will start one”

3 months latter

Rick ”what a business. it is selling hot in Jersey City, NY and never knew i would make a business out of IDLI”

Ramu on skype ‘Saraswati wants to open more franchise.. will you invest?”

Rick ”of course.. Idli is one of my favourite dish now on.. pack up time for fat PIZZA’s’
