My First Blog Post

WHO AM I?

Define yourself before the world defines you.

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

As the famous saying goes, define yourself before world defines you. My basic motive of starting this another blog is to write about something uptight and also help other people like me who don’t know who they are and are in need of defining themselves and start afresh.

I want to define this blog as a redefining forum for

  1. Personality identification for youngsters.
  2. Search for true feminism and women empowerment
  3. Importance of mental heath and mindfulness
  4. How to?
  5. Pure form of art.
  6. Basics of finance for everyone.

I basically want to discuss all these topics in details accustomed for all types of individuals. Please let me know in the comments below if you want something in specific or also genres related to something different yet helpful.

If you do not feel interested in the topics listed above, share your ideas of help or topics you or your loved ones could benefit from. Also feel free to contact me in case of any thought or idea or a suggestion. Also I would request you to observe some of these thoughts of mine as pure forms of art and nothing else.

Cheers!

Books I have read so far: STAY HUNGRY STAY FOOLISH

STAY HUNGRY STAY FOOLISH is a collection of some of the inspiring stories of 25 IIM Ahmedabad graduates who chose to tread a path of their own making. Author Rashmi Bansal is a writer, entrepreneur and a youth expert. She is the author of 6 best selling books on entrepreneurship which have sold more than a million copies and have been translated into 10 different languages.

The book was commissioned by the centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE), IIM Ahmedabad. The book has stories of three types of people:

  1. The Believers ( the ones who already know they want to pursue their dream of becoming an entrepreneur).
  2. The Opportunists (the ones who did not know their path but opportunity knocked and they seized it).
  3. The Alternative Vision ( the ones who are pursing entrepreneurship for a social cause or as a way of creative expression)

Each story may be different but at another level they are all the same. The entrepreneur took a leap of faith. They struggled and strived for years. Before finally achieving a size and scale which made the effort what we call a success.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS:

1.Be early. You can make your mistakes while it is cheap to make them, when there is no competition.

2. Do not exaggerate in your business plan. Undercommit and overdeliver.

3. Get great people- sell them the vision, the idea and share the wealth, be generous with offering stock.

4.The risk- reward equation is completely in favour of the entrepreneur. There is no way that you will be economically rewarded less for being an entrepreneur than by taking up a job.

5.Be true to your inner voice. Don’t just think about it, just jump into it and do it.

The book basically seeks to inspire young B-School graduates to look beyond placements and salaries. To believe in their dreams.

All in all a great book for young and aspiring entrepreneurs.

Do read and share your reviews.

The Books I have Read So Far: The 100$ Startup.

Namaste People! This is the post from where I will starting the my book review series. The first one in this is my recent read, The 100$ Startup by Chris Guillebeau.

Have you ever thought what is to be like working for yourself and sticking to your passion and pursuing it to earn a livelihood out of it rather than working for somebody else and not liking your nine to five job.

Lets first discuss the key points displayed because of which it is a must read for the aspiring entrepreneurs of today.

  1. Always start with small steps and treat every step with utmost importance.
  2. Focusing on providing value to your customer and keeping them the King.
  3. Hustle for a good launch, hustle for good marketing and promotion.
  4. Target small chunk of audience first and then focus on the bigger chunk.
  5. Don’t over plan and underact.

Now the summary:

The book is filled with ideas and examples of people starting with micro businesses of all sorts and then turning it to a six figure revenue venture. It also shows how full-time working employees can leave their not so exciting working career and turn into some of the most successful entrepreneurs. It will basically target all your needs of encountering various phases of an entrepreneur right from the start to the seventh sky heights of it.

What I loved the most about the book is the continuous mention of real life examples of modern day businessman.

Why GrandParents should never leave us?

GrandParents’ love will never grow old.

Little did I knew about him leaving me alone and allowing me to face every bit of life by myself. Nana and Badepapa were just names given to them. They were more than parents to me. The level of comfort I felt in hugging him, talking to him and gracefully getting all my wishes fulfilled was yet another beautiful story. You can get enough of everything in this world but you cannot actually get enough of your GrandParents.

He. He was different. Always accompanying me with all my dreams. Always supporting me with all my mistakes and always being proud of me. Not that Mumma Papa was different but his support was unlike all others. He treated me like his princess who will never leave his side and will always listen to his indifferent stories repeating the same characters. He was my gem. He was my Nana.

BadePapa was always a distinct grandparent. With all those habits of eating, smoking and enjoying life, he was a wonderful child at heart. From helping me with complex math problems to giving me money for snacks he was a proud grandpa. His bedroom always had room for me and my brother to binge-watch television.

Little did I knew about the importance of these two in my life and the kinds of experience they poured out in my life. My life was beyond special with them. They aren’t there with me now but their abundant love and warmth always stay with me.

P.S Namaste People. I have posted this one to remind you all how all of us so love our grandparents and miss them tons. Please comment on how you felt on the same. Looking forward.

CHEERS!

Those nights and days spend together will always remain with me,

Those moments of pleasure,

Those smiles of leisure’s,

Those adventured talks

And those non-stop walks,

Each and every moment of darkness,

Spend to proclaim something,

Bringing me close to you,

My heart pounded to figure,

Whether it’s me or something magical has actually happened,

God has just peeped into my life proving why he has made me to wait.

For something unusual happen to me,

Trust me it was neither the darkness, nor the loneliness,

But it was your pure heart and soul.

That made me realize,

What is to be loved, to be relished and behold.

Only now I could feel a sense of indulgencing and accomplishment,

And the power of love, Of Course.
