(Startup and Entrepreneurs need to have the patience and courage to fight all types of struggles. The ambition was yours, the passion too, success too so why not accept failures and still live a longer and again revive as after all dark tunnel, light will come and even if light will not come, you can again move back from the darkness in same path till you again come back to some light, back to square one and again start afresh. Happy friendship day..

Ethical Home Management

Ethical Home Management
Bringing in transperancy plays a key role for any successful home management.
Bad mouthing our own family members also can create an issue. In global era, our family members could be of different caste, religion, color, creed. So this may lead to rifts, hate waves and sooner before we realize, it leads to managing pockets of hatred, rather then managing the home.
Budgets need to be reviewed. In Joint Family at times many earning members may feel the non earning member should not be given same privilege. How to bring in social empathy within family will play a key role.
There are many a time, culture and traditions which play an influencer role and at times a few of our family members may not believe in same or may wish to follow all together a different culture. How to accept them and successfully gel with them without compromizing on your own principles need loads of tolerance, patience. Any subtle dominance may lead to real rift.
Finally either a husband, wife, father, mother, grandfather or grandmother or son or daughter or maybe even a well wisher may be the home manager for you, however at times 2nd lead creation gets missed out. This leads to the home cracking once the home manager moves to different responsibilities or maybe even expires.

Investment Lessons

Investment Lesson

What type of tree you wish to plant?

I have seen multiple investors who wish a very rapid investment return from innovation. This  is simply not possible as innovation needs acceptance and then it grows.

So what really happened was all who stopped thinking of innovation, invested in copy-cat models and some got huge returns, many failed and then the investors cribbed that the startup ecosystem is not conductive enough.

What happened to the fruits (startups)

They were never ripe fruits in first place, it was like selling a half ripe fruit like GRAPE to someone and obviously you will have bitter taste. you failed to realize GRAPE VINE itself takes 2 years for yielding fruits.  Analyze the costs yourselves and Investors will realize themselves where we are failing.  We should not invest in startups but invest in STOCK if you want things to happen too soon.

That GRAPE vine will yield minimum 30 years, if maintained properly.

What happened to the individuals who invested maybe in something like a MANGO tree (UNICORNS)

They had that patience for minimum 8 years, to collectively grow it, without any greed to exit and results are there for everyone.

TRAFFIC JAMS

I visited a city and found how slowly man can create a man made problem for self

Tom visits a very crowded city in India and is shocked.. A family of 4 having 20 vehicles..

Tom is trying to reach out the popular mobile apps available for cab sharing

Tom gets a cab on time…

Tom ‘hey.. how you manage to be so patient to drive all the way with so much traffic.’

Jambu ‘Sir.. this is more lucrative then BPO job.. so I drive.. but then it is also having no future’

Tom is remembering his investor friend who has a plush bungalow.. 20 vehicles.. 4- 4 wheelers, 6 motor bikes, 5-6 old scooters, scooty,  couple of bicycles

Tom is dazzled

The cab driver is patiently waiting for 5 minutes and slowly slowly driving..

They finally reach the event…

The event manager Ram greets Tom

‘Sir you reached on time.. very good.. event will begin after 1 hour.. many stuck in traffic’

Tom ‘what will happen in 2020’

Ram ‘Government will find some solutions.’

Tom thinks in his mind

‘We talk of driverless car, connected so many things.. but why are we actually behaving literally the same.. mindless directions.. and look at grass root problems and learn to be less materialistic and save scarce resources’

Tom is shaken up by Ram

Ram ‘Sir hot coffee.. do not sleep.. we will begin soon’

After 2 hours

Ram ‘Sir.. all have come.. let us wrap up soon as this city again has traffic jams after 4pm’

Tom smiles..

Tom ‘Yes.. sure.. I will give my 5 minute speech in 1 min’

Tom addresses the participants

Tom ‘I admire your patience and I admire your zeal and I hope and sincerely hope all of you lead healthy pollution free life with my pure air bags… you just need to put it on your nose and inhale and even in traffic jams, you will remain fresh’

All look at each other and begin smiling

Tom ‘straight from a remote island in Northern part of the world.. extremely pure air bags ..  5$ only and it can give you 1 week safe oxygen’

All are silent

Tom is greeted with just silence

Ram ‘Sir.. they all are zapped.. they are calculating how much each family will need to spend on fresh air by 2020’

All begin laughing…

 

tell me the truth

Investor ‘I have loads of money’

Entrepreneur ‘are you sure’

Investor ‘yes’

Entrepreneur ‘why then you do not invest in our initiative’

Investor ‘let the dream come true’

Éntrepreneur ‘which one?’

Investor ‘I have loads of money in my dream’

Entrepreneur looks zapped

Investor ‘see we VC rely on investors and only if they give money.. we can disburse… subject to their interest on projects… have patience’
