Entrepreneur – theory of dream

Once upon a time, there was an individual who dreamt to be big. See self in all posters of the country.  The easiest route was to become an actor. Chose to become one.

Soon endless camera captures, interviews.. the individual was a celebrity.

One day he meets Jackson the leading Entrepreneur Expert in one of the events.

Jackson ”cool James.. a celebrity indeed”

James ”I am an entrepreneur”

Jackson burst out laughing

Jackson ”Common James.. do not confuse your achievement to becoming an entrepreneur… how many of your movies did you experiment with? did it succeed?’

Jack ”no.. all failed”

Jackson ”experimentation focuses are startup culture. Till you evolve a business model.. so it is a myth when someone says he or she is entrepreneur after successfully running a business for ages.. they were an entrepreneur in initial stages.. so you are no longer an entrepreneur till you decide to do something new”

Jack ”my next dream is to act in a hindi movie”

Jackson ”great… pursue it like an entrepreneur”

Jack ”should all entrepreneurs think of becoming famous and successful or known as big business men”

Jackson ”absolutely all should think.. but focus on craft and art, do not focus on your exterior goals.. hawn the skills which will pay you better.. no point in you learning chemistry if you are not going to use it.. learn acting.. hope you are getting what I mean to say”

Jack hugs Jackson and whispers ”Dance like there is no tomorrow.. are you any relative of Michael Jackson”

Jackson ”common.. all mistake me.. see the brand he created.. However I cannot change my name.. so am lost in his identity.. but if you see my linkedin ID, I too have 2000 followers”

Jack ”what is dream theory?”

Jackson “believe you will do it.. but do not go overboard assuming you will just get there.. you have to work hard or easier way, spend money to get there soon.. but purpose should exist, or just 1 minute fame and you loose million bucks.. do not overspend on promoting self if you really didn”t have a good product or service quality in you or your brand”

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

 

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.

 

Sabse bada dollar?

Once upon a time, there was this movie Sabse Bada Rupaiyyah (Money comes at top) and an entertaining story…

but how is Dollar relevant today?

Joy ”Pound is better.. more amount we get in India”

Samuel “Do you know dollar.. many CA”s actually collect dollars as hobbies in hope one day dollar will reach 100 rupee and they make a great killing”

Mark dear friend of Samuel ”I am most of time glued to monitor to check where rupee depriciates and I transfer money.. even cent savings is important”

Harry “Me too not investing these days as rupee seems to appreciate.. good lucks.. let us wait for $ to rise”

Munna “What is big deal… what rises will fall down.. what falls will rise.. or will not rise again”

James “Human values if it falls below.. then”

Munna ”will rise again..  when no money exists, love exists.. and when money exists, love doesn’t”

Elisa “common economics professors.. this is our annual meet and you are talking about Sabse bada Dollar…   Munna… you are teaching us Hindi in your own style.. coming all way from Delhi Economics department.. gold medalist.. unbelievable”

Munna sips a wine and looks upward…

“currency is so important in our life that we forget the currents in it and just succumb to it..  anyone can leave anything for it.. and when it leaves you… we remember all who were left by us because of it””

Investor fears

Rafi is a top notch investor and now fears that he will loose his money in the startups which he has invested all his ways..

Spark his close friend who is also an investor chuckles

‘why you fear Rafi.. you made loads of money and only 10% of it is moved back to angel funds’

Rafi ‘I fear because the angel groups have gone into habit of having over 10 plus investors investing in one venture which does project a large deal size.. ‘

Spark ‘everyone wishes to be follow on investor hence’

 

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?’
