Am I the Investor?

Rob is an ace psychologist.. he has been called upon by a group of investors who are reeling under shock because of their recent investments in startups..

Joe an investor just got a mini attack when he lost US$100000 all in 9 months. His invested startup has no takers.. bad management, founder is on merry trips..

Louisa is sad as all her invested companies are not doing well….

Rob ‘Admit guys you are greedy?’

Mark ‘common Investment means 5 X to 10 X returns’

Rob ‘how? let me give you strings and stretch it as much as possible’

Joe, Louisa, Mark all their strings break..

Rob uses his two hands and stretches a string.. it is not breaking…

Rob ‘do you know balancing.. it is not breaking.. founders need to balance a company.. even investors are as good as founders… if investor or founder gets greedy, project is gone’

Joe ‘but we are promoting entrepreneurship’

Rob ‘common investing couple of dollars and assuming the venture scales up.. not a good idea…’

Joe ‘but we invest in incubation managers too’

Rob ‘some 1%? ‘do you really feel you will get experienced folks in that?’

Louisa is silent

Joe ‘just converting freshers to entrepreneurs is disaster if they are not trained and investing on senior professionals to be entrepreneur too is disaster as they do not wish to listen over period of time’

Rob ‘so you use combinators right’

All echo ‘yes’

Rob ‘when did you first understand the importance of studies’

Louisa sheepishly ’15’

others 12, 17, 21 etc

Rob ‘same way.. an entrepreneur takes own time to understand importance of their business to their employee’s etc’

Louisa ‘i wish to exit from my ventures’

Rob ‘never think like a sales man if you wish to build foundations’

Rob ‘invest in one.. but make that one a success. have patience and above all acknowledge all who scale up that…else you head to disaster’

Mark ‘Investor invests to make multiples of money’

Rob ‘Investor should invest to build foundations’

Rob ‘no 9 month horizon.. 2-3 years minimum’

Rob ‘next time do not get carried away and invest in same type of projects.. demand is less.. supply is more.. all finished’

Love notes

Love is all about Lots of Voice Echoing in your heart
Why does it beat when I wish to control?
Why does it think when I wish to be out of control?
If Love is so simple, why it becomes complex after a while
Why Love is a mathematical problem of probabilities
when all it needs is 2 sets of eyes gazing at each other
wishing to be for life together..

If PASSION is all about pain and endurance for a cause
Love is all about experience and feelings for a cause

Love and PASSION go hand in hand together on a mission
If you love something, do not stop loving that something
because something happened by mistake or un-knowingly
forgiveness and compassion is best form of returns which you can give to even your enemy for building love foundations all over again.

KARMA returns

Kris ‘In our life, whatsoever we do has a bearing to our past’

Milan ‘you mean to say if we have broken relation it is because in past, we did something terribly wrong hence got separated out?’

Kris ‘sometimes unknowingly we separate people, we try to seek our own interests.. and then it returns back’

Milan ‘I didn’t split anyone in this life time?’

Kris ‘Karma is not about this life , any human’s previous life too’

Milan ‘I don’t believe in this’

Kris ‘you are an entrepreneur today.. contributing to society.. have 10 employees..

Milan ‘So?’

Kris ‘It is because it is pre-planned. Destiny plays an important role too’

Milan ‘It is tough to understand this philosophy. How many here agree destiny plays an important role?’

At the conference all are pin drop silent

Kris ‘Sometimes collectively we fail to argue, stand by our points or may be voice our opinions through tweets, facebook messages, likes and so on.. How many here agree that your will power can change your destiny’

Again all silent

Kris smiles at Milan

Kris ‘the difference between HAVING and NOT HAVING is only failure to ATTEMPT irrespective of constraints’

Kris ‘Push your soul, heart and mind to attempt what you dream about.. may be dream gets converted to reality’

Kris ‘KARMA returns are good if you attempt good task which contributes to self and others’
