StartUps & Entreprenuership

Make your dream a reality. Be a participant, not an observer

Most entrepreneurs are driven not by the need to make money, but by the need to make their dreams a reality.

More often than not, money is a byproduct of an entrepreneur’s motivation and seldom the motivation itself.

Entrepreneurs are participants, not observers; players, not fans. And to be an entrepreneur is to be an optimist, to believe that with the right amount of time and money, you can achieve anything.

Personal BRanding

Create the brand called you and influence people without having to use words

Remember that our name is a brand that we truly own. 

A brand has been registered in our name (through our birth certificate) and patented with our persona (through our deeds and investments) even though there may be hundreds of other individuals with the same name as you. 

We are unique, as unique as our fingerprint or our retina scan or your gene sequence. Did you know that more than 90% of our communication is non-verbal? Such communication creates perceptions about us with the people around us. 

There is no one else in the World like us.

Listen to Ashutosh Garg, author of the best selling book “The Brand Called You” talk about various aspects of building your personal brand.

Today’s 60 is yesterday’s 40. Are you planning well enough for tomorrow ?

Today’s 60 is yesterday’s 40. So goes the saying.

 Yet, all of us have to retire one day from what we are doing today when we reach the chronological “number” listed out for us in our terms of employment. This could be anywhere from 58 to 65. 

Retirement is a sensitive subject for most of us and only when we reach the age of retirement do we start to think about it, leave alone plan for it. Given today’s healthcare facilities, most people will lead almost one third of their lives post retirement or post the age of 60.

Listen to Ashutosh Garg, author of the best selling book “Reinvent, Reboot, Rewire. Managing Retirement in the 21st Century” talking about various issues faced in Retirement.
