Super Moms

Marie ”Just taking her responsibility as I know my hubby will never take care of her.. 2 years back.. got married and then.. realized he had a failed startup.. boozing and lost in his world.. and then my little treasure came in.. just feel so happy seeing her’

Julie ”do you know the club where most of these entrepreneurs meet.. I found this handsome geek.. ambitious.. wanting to work on block chain project.. never realized that he didn’t understand the chain of constraints in one’s life when we take this big step..  Not committed, but allowed me to have a kid…  and there he is Netherland .. trying to seek funds..  however am left with him.. my little bundle of joy..

Rashmi ”my story is a bit different.. a 18 year old girl.. my daughter.. and a 5 year old son.. and one day I hear.. he is already married to someone else and has a 14 year old boy.. He is a successful man and has run his IT consulting for ages.. and I chose to be in India to look after his business.. till I heard this story… but am happy.. the kids are getting reconciled to additional family members…

Marie ”We are cool super moms. .. who will ensure our babies will grow the right way.. after all.. business is not about only making an entity successful leaving away your personal issues to someone else.. it is about making personal life too happy.. so who wants to join me for a great late evening bash at Marriot, NY today’

Rashmi ”lets get going… and the kids will be taken care by my daughter’



What you wish to do?

“What you wish to do.. will happen only if you convince others that it is the only way to go forward to solve the pain point.

What you wish not to do.. will happen only if you convince others that it is the not the way to go forward.”

Sam as a Mentor/Coach feels most of the startup entrepreneurs get bogged down by mentor / advisors /investor pressures and deviate from the original plan of action and also end up loosing interest..

His fiancé Julie is fed up of his passion for teaching entrepreneurs

One day she decides to split from him.

Sam ‘I feel the only way to go forward is for you to understand me..’

Julie ‘you cannot convince me this way… you need to spend time with me’

Sam ‘I do spend 2 hours everyday’

Julie ‘no startups, no entrepreneurs.. no discussions about investors’

Sam ‘it is got into my system.. how I rewind it?’

Julie ‘world will not change because of your mentoring, I will change.. I may leave you.. nd you will be left with few entrepreneurs.. but what you will miss out is me.. so learn to have life balance’

Sam hugs Julie

Sam ‘seriously sometimes we go overboard with work and loose our personal life’



Where am I?

Where am I?

In between entrepreneurs and incubators

In between incubators and accelerators

In between angels and term sheets

In between startup and Mentors

Life of me is what PASSION all about..

PASSION begins with a strong zeal to achieve an objective and seek security from the same.

So next time if I am dozing of to sleep, not writing blog, somewhere lost,

realize am somewhere in between

wanting you too be someone there..

and spreading entrepreneur spirit all over.

Personal life too exists and am in between there too… balancing family and self.




Half Baked Love Full Baked Entrepreneur

Monty “I only wished you could take over the apparel business”

Susan “Monty – never was interested in business”

Monty “I want to marry you damn it – for business then I need to find some other trust worthy person and to top it all you are possessive”

Susan “Why you wish only a woman to lead it – men too can”

Monty “This is what will happen – a lady apparel stores run by men – It is fine if my brand is big, we are small time startup”

Susan “Ok let me introduce to my best friend Sarah”

Sarah is a shrewd, good looking girl who has completed her management.. she only knows that she wishes to be successful

Monty is enamored by Sarah. He feels she can be a better partner even in personal life, slowly he begins avoiding Susan

Susan “Monty I find you drifting away from me.. “

Monty “Susan I still don’t like your possessiveness”

Susan “But for nearly 6 years you loved it”

Monty “As teen, early youth it was fine.. but now I feel there needs to be space”

Susan looks in Monty’s eyes and feels love has diminished..

Susan “Ok let us break.. go ahead and marry Sarah”

Monty “How are you so sure I started liking Sarah”

Susan “Know you ins and out. you are self centered  and so is she.. so good match”

Monty proposes Sarah

Sarah accepts his proposal and also informs Monty that she will need 85% stake in the venture.. and she will manage business first and house hold is not her priority”

Monty agrees and soon they get court registered marriage

On marriage night Monty “I want you to begin a family.. a kid.. will complete the family”

Sarah “Are you crazy? Not married you to produce babies.. The startup is our baby, let us give it 5 years, babies latter” and she hugs Monty and kisses him and whispers “Hope we have safe sex always.. I don’t like to pop pills”

Monty’s face falls low and he says “Not prepared today.. so fine let us sleep”

Sarah looks at Monty sweetly and says ‘You are my baby”

Monty in his mind “Girls tell male baby only if they want something from them”

Monty is about to kiss Sarah but stops at it..

Sarah “I didn’t ask you to stop love” and she hugs him passionately..

Monty “But I need to always be in control right..”
Sarah “Common not a big deal for you.. you are experienced with Susan”

Monty gets angry

Monty “Sarah – Susan was understanding, loving and a home maker, I was trying to make her a business woman and here I am with you” and he sighs

Sarah “Do you know our venture is getting funded. I add the glamor quotient,. you got lucky “

Monty “I realize in life never mix personal and professional interests..”

Sarah “Dear Monty, now let us forget the past and make new beginning” and she hugs Monty

3 years latter

Monty meets Susan in a restaurant by accident.. Susan is with a very good looking known investor and happy..

Monty “How are you?”

Susan “Am very happy. I lost you but gained Joseph an investor and we invest in entrepreneurs and he has mentored me in a way where I balance my personal life well.. My hubby” and she blushes

Monty “Susan, Sarah left me when she got 2nd round of funding. an exit from business and here I am all alone.  Can you invest in my venture and be a partner”

Susan begins laughing and whispers to her hubby “Half baked love Full baked Entrepreneur but he is a bright spot”

Joseph “Fine Monty – let us begin interactions”

Moral of story – Let us not try to change someone’s individuality for our own selfish interests else we may loose that individual and even our own little heart.
