My office is no office

Joy is a happy go lucky mentor cum trainer. With a very small office space literally to ensure folks learn and earn in most frugal way, he comes across a strange situation.

Nancy ‘it is too small.. how many employees?’

Joy ‘as many as you think’

Nancy ‘do we have freshers?’

Joy ‘you are also a fresher right?’

Nancy ‘are they working or non working?’

Joy ‘experience is not about being in paid salary or being unpaid.. it is all about knowledge gain to scale up futher’

Nancy ‘I am scared’

Joy ‘Startups are scary.. they are like horror stories where you may shriek, you may feel pressure.. you may learn a lot of self defence only to find at the end a winner emerging. Either you sustain or you move to next job’

Joy ‘An average mind psychology is what looks big seems beautiful. A very rich billionaire feels small is beautiful and historically everything which is precious is small or rare. Moral of story.. you may loose something big becausee of ignorance or not able to value small’

Packs of Card

Ramya has full tears.. when she hears Morris’s voice…

Morris ‘we have got them with great difficulty.. let us pack them to Malaysia

Ramya is totally scared and shrieks..

Morris ‘she is like her father a drummer and noise making’

Jai hands over around 20 tickets.. and suddenly his eyes fall on Ramya

Jai ‘oh so sweet she looks’

Morris ‘dare you… ‘

Jai returns back…

Morris ‘Shona.. am tired.. this is cost of just taking a foreign external investor money. They looked so good. As entrepreneurs we are reduced to pimping’

Shona ‘I also feel we are going wrong’

Morris ‘what next? I failed in US accelerator program, went to Dublin there too and now this mess because of unsecured loan’

Shona ‘let us confront Razbi and inform him this is not possible’

A few minutes latter on phone
Morris ‘Razbi.. not possible.. we cannot do this… am releasing all the girls’

Small Ego’s

Rita ‘this is not done.. I feel insulted’

James ‘why?’

Rita ‘you scolded me in front of all’

James ‘remember.. if you are an entrepreneur, first learn subordination’

Rita ‘I can never become an employee’

James ‘Dear Rita, when an entrepreneur takes money from investor, it is first step towards subordination. If you take money from your client, it is again subordination. In life never ever keep small ego’s to ruin self’

Rita ‘I am seriously not sure.. I guess I never worked on my own’

James ‘we need startup founders to work themselves and not burn their money through appointed people’

Startup dialog

“I am Krishna.. here on, will be referred as Startup, Am not the Lord.. just my parents gave me this name’

Startup ‘I am thoroughly confused.. investors want paying clients. Government introduced schemes and when I go there to check, they mention asset centric startups prefered as banks need protection’

Investor ‘I really cannot invest in individuals who just have PPT with them’

Startup ‘am confused, I thought you invest in great idea’

Investor ‘great proven idea’

Startup ‘it is then not innovation’

Investor ‘ok.. great proven innovative disruptive selling idea where you already made some money’

Startup ‘but I need to still sell’

Investor ‘ok.. I suggest look for accelerators who can invest in you’

1 month later

Startup ‘I approached many accelerators.. even they want paying models’

Investor ‘ok.. how well connected you are there’

Startup ‘I reached over 100 investors, 50 accelerators.. so I guess am well connected’

Investor ‘why don’t you join my company as incubation research facilitator’

Startup ‘not a bad idea.. thanks’

Krishna reaches home ‘it is an illusion world.. all having their own MAYA and LEELA’ for performances..

Krishna hugs his girlfriend Reena

Krishna ‘Reena.. I managed to get a job.. now onwards my worst ideas will also become investable.. crazy world this is. No incubation managers.. and we plan so many accelerator programs.. No banks willing to invest.. but we declare we will create employment opportunities.. come lets go and eat bread cream in some Irani restaurent.. . need to butter’

Delusions

Joy is convinced that he is born to bring in joy to people on earth.. One day
Joy ‘how I wish I can help millions’
Nancy ‘I feel you are delusioned’
Joy smiles…
Joy ‘is it so?’
Nancy ‘how is it possible to give joy to millions?’
Joy ‘through entertainment’
Nancy ‘but you are not an entertainer too’
Joy ‘so many of us have various delusions in life and we believe in them.. everything is so contradictory to what we believe. Each entrepreneur is supposed and believes he or she is successful. Each investor believes money will come at least once and we will be happy… I am JOY. A delusion to most, reality to few’
