Life Metrics

Life Metrics

Life is not what we do everyday, it is something which you begin from someday to make a positive impact on society.
The more we focus on that with tangible output, the more we know that we are going in the right direction.

Some takeaways
a) The best gift we can give to a person who is stuck in problem, is to let that person realize that thinking about a problem should not be the focus, but thinking of ways to solve the problem more important. Being a good listenor helps.
b) Sometimes we may feel we are totally broke, with no sight of money.. The solution lies in taking up any job to withstand that situation but at same time be determined to push your goals and remain attached to those goals to fulfill it.
Through our framework, am helping individuals who wish to rethink, re-invent, build themselves again and cherish, nurture their core dreams and passion.
Do not pause, Do not wait for the right time. Time is present.. and it just fly’s before we realize it. Just get going right away

Errors of life

Joy ‘I am depressed, I wish to die’

Sam ‘relax.. nepotism is everywhere’

Joy ‘the investor’s prefer only the favorite ones.. or ones from premier institute’

Few days later

Sam ‘Joy what happened… why are you hospitalized’

Joy ‘nothing much … attempted suicide’

Sam ‘three errors of life

Assuming too much for Self

Assuming too much from Others

Assuming Escape from Situation is best to liberate self.

Overcome all these assumptions and face life as it is. Human Life is a a gift by God. Do not let it go so cheaply’

 

Startups need to understand economics of running a startup

Startups need a Minimum viable product/service along with

1) Tactical guidance

2) Milestone based investments

3) Cashflow Management with balanced budgeting covering development, marketing, implementation, documentation, security, process, hardware, infrastructure.

4) Stable team composition

5) Market Linkages

6) Approach to give ROI (Return to Investors)

Valuation will happen in the journey. Many entrepreneurs begin focusing on raising investments covering huge burn rates.

Example
Rs10lacs = US$14000 roughly.
1) Startup spending Rs10lacs/month of which Rs5lacs is management overhead.

2) Startups spending Rs2lacs/month with Rs1.5lacs as marketing overhead

3) Startups spending Rs5crores/month on technical team with 10lacs/month on marketing.

If you observe all of above examples show imbalanced budgeting. Please revisit your budgets.

I have been helping many startups understand, reduce costs and also optimize profits through market linkages. Some startups understand it, some argue, some continue.. but nevertheless unless a balanced budget not planned, no startup can ever get good results.

1 Dollar business

1 dollar business does well for products.. what about services

James ‘am going to initiate a 1$/hour business’

Rocky ‘it will not sell.. you will run in losses’

James ‘so be it.. 0.50 cents will be shared to the contributor’

Rocky ‘do not.. do it’

2 days latter

James ‘100000 empanelment’. All want to be part of it..

Rocky ‘seriously not sure where you are heading’

James ‘remember in today’s world of inflation, only low cost service models will work’

Startup investments

A monthly investment of just US$150 to US$300 for 2 years. Many invest in stock/mutual fund/insurance..
Why not invest in startup? Life would get only better cofounding a company.

Melissa ‘this will not work?’

PS ‘it should.. as anyways no one is creating jobs and many are being laid out.. if this much also someone who earns even US$15000/- per annum do it, there is some serious issue.. it means finance management is a bit tipsy turvy an no alternate business planning in sight.. jobs will continue to get reduced over period of time.. do become entrepreneur’

Melissa ‘are you sure?’

Love shrieks ‘why?’

Love shrieks why?
why it happens always
when never wanted always

Love shrieks why?
why I felt always
when I never wished always

Feelings can never be same
Emotions can never be same too
Love shrieks why?
why one wins and one looses
why heart cannot in unison
agree to all the wishes

Love shrieks why?
Why a partner seperates
when love needs the most
to be together

(Seperation is not a solution for an entrepreneur cofounder or partner or even in relation, more important to remain united and if at all break ups happen it is only because of deep hurt to heart, a betrayal of trust or nothing but some small ego, which makes individuals not communicate’

Neo ‘hey who is the 5th person?’

5) You are the founder…

6) Dilute your shares.. as much as possible give less of yourself and extract more’

Jones ‘this is not fair’

Tresa ‘but is it this not already known’

Neo ‘but we do not have money for doing so?’

Mary ‘paid holiday US$50 per day per person x 5 x 40 workdays = US$10000’

Jones ‘oh this much of money we get’

Mary ‘dear No..

20) Celebrate 50 customers.. all in span of 40 days

Lovely ‘so easy?’

21 ‘getting together all of you in a house, you will understand all your shortcomings and then god knows who will be remaining with whom and then on;ly form a real legal valid company..
