an ungifted gift

love is something which when given, is loved and when not given, is hated

or if given forcefully, still hated.

Lisa pulls Mike round the corner

Lisa ”Common.. not a single gift to me…”

Lisa plants a forceful kiss on Mike’s lips..

Mike ”Common.. I just do not love you.. stay away from me”

Lisa has drops of tears

Joy comes in…to the restaurent where the party is on

Joy hugs Lisa

Joy ”Lisa… seriously.. no expectations.. just get going and do something of your own”

Lisa hugs Joy and keeps sobbing.

 

 

Startup questions

Will I get invested soon?

No

Can you connect us to few investors?

Yes

Will the investors look at our traction and get impressed?

No

Should I approach investors then or wait?

Wait..

But I dont have funds to bootstrap?

Pause and work part time too

Can the investor manage to give me at least money for me to do basic startup pre-requisites?

Common if you want to be an employee, then do that.. why you want to be an entrepreneur.

In nutshell individuals should not confuse entrepreneurship as another form of employment given by investors

 

Crime of being a humorist

Humorist begins writing humor and is surprised at multiple critics

Humorist ‘what is my mistake? I was trying to make people laugh’

Critic ‘making someone butt of joke and laughing of that is not humor’

Humorist ‘Was just following modern day trend’

Critic ‘common.. do you realize humor is all about humming nonsense with no correlation to dead or alive and think of what popular international cartoonist or animation studio does.. build characters dear.. fictious one.. Tom and Jerry, Micky Mouse and so many’

Humorist ‘I found slapstick comedy being accepted by many’

Critic ‘do you know sense of humor is state of mind.. if you are tensed, irritated over life, where will you have time to understand humor and when you disregard that personal space of an individual.. then mere TRP will not help build value’

Humorist ‘Did I make a mistake?’

Critic ‘Not sure.. but one thing is for sure.. never mimic a character with a useless joke which hurts sentiments of common man who worship that character’

Humorist ‘Should I apologize?’

Critic ‘common.. should I be guiding you for this too.. when did you last cry?’

Humorist ‘mock cry.. I did.. I never cried for many days’

Critic ‘watch your face today when you cry.. you may find it too funny’

Humorist ‘should I put that poster and say ‘Sorry’

Critic ‘life is a humor.. it plays on us every moment… the sense of humor is nothing but sense of life.. if we begin disregarding body of work of individuals and talk loosely, it will hurt people.. and if we begin respecting it. and wish you bring in smiles and laughter in people whom you joke.. just have animated new characters built.. unknown ones.. fiction ones and create a fiction..  more likely you will be appreciated’

Humorist ‘I need fund for that’

Critic ‘you lost much by making fun of potential investors.. hope you realize your folly’

 

Do you wish to be successful entrepreneur?

How many of us have been determined to be an entrepreneur?
How many of us decided to purchase a 100 buck product and tried to sell it at 150?
How many of us visit a technical book shop and show a natural inclination to read technology and draw a technology roadmap of products or project?
As a rest less soul, an entrepreneur needs to keep researching, using google, using every social media to identify competition around self.

Can we really penetrate and get more clients?
Building a brand takes many years. Out of good will, out of marketing thrusts, out of strategy to reach out.  It happened for PASSION too..  1996, folks correlated PASSION with love and then.. slowly and surely PASSION got acknowledged in academic institutes and students as facilitator for live projects and then.. PASSION PRO came in.. Pune.. the vehicle brand and slowly and surely with even a news letter to push the brand, PASSION IT  got circulated and we found the business model working out and then the word PASSION kept growing.. it seeped into the entrepreneur eco system.
After the usual copyright and trademark in place.. and spending almost 30 to 50% of revenue earned in advertisement and marketing, decided to get lean.. leaner and more leaner.. and began using the social media power to reach out to people.

Is entrepreneurship tough?
Absolutely.. if you are not determined and are not passionate about your initiative and do not wish to make personal sacrifices, nothing can move ahead..
Many a time folks wish sleeping or dormant partners and it fails as only an entrepreneur needs to understand that overspending on media is meaningless and overspending on expansion too. As long as the first client sets do not accept you, nothing works out.
For free bee’s many come in.. charge money.. and all are gone.

Who can succeed in this journey?
The one who are courageous, become visible, push themselves and focus on quality product and services.

PASSION will reach millions and no doubts about that.. It is the strong zeal to achieve an object and seek security from that object. Whether it is wishing to have a baby, or wishing to learn or wishing to have a boy friend or girl friend or marriage or whatsoever.. finally security plays an important role in mind of entrepreneur..

Can an Entrepreneur really scale up with no money?
Many did that successfully through small funds..  As long as willingness to return back debts exist, as long as courage exists to work in team and without being greedy and understanding pain points of a domain and solving a solution.. things will just work out for you. No point of end less discussions, thinking and not working an idea and taking steps to make a product or service

Just ACT, SCOPE AND SET  your initiative through right probing and innovation.
Nurture and Own your venture
