THINK AND GROW RICH - VISION PRECEDES SUCCESS




 All entrepreneurs start with an idea and a belief that their vision can have a massive impact. The vision is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by the entrepreneur. The impulse, the desire, is given shape, form and action through the vision and mission statement derived from the imaginative faculty of the mind. Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes. Ideas are the product of imagination. Whoever you are, wherever you may live, whatever occupation you may be engaged in, just remember in the future that any vast empire of wealth and influence grew out of a single idea mixed with the ingredient of a vision.

If you are one of those who believe that hard work and honesty, alone, will bring riches, forget this thought! It is not true! Riches, when they come in huge quantities are never the result of hard work alone! Riches come in response to definite demands, based upon the application of definite principles, and not by chance or luck. All master sales-men know that ideas can be sold where merchandise cannot. Ordinary sales-men do not know this-that is why they are “ordinary”.

When the creator of ideas and a seller of ideas get together and work in harmony practically a great fortune starts building up! Becoming a magnet for talent is a very strong predictor of eventual success for all companies and even more so for startups. The entrepreneurship has so far been eclipsed by an obsession with education and skilling. But without jobs to fill, skilling is often a waste of resources and can lead to even greater frustration among youth. Therefore the mediocre individuals are now being driven to entrepreneurship for survival. Their risk –taking mindset leads them to the success path focused on building the next unicorn, like Flipkart. The Bangalore based Ecommerce Company initially focused on online book sales with country wide shipping, later moving on to FMCG, fashion and lifestyle products. In spite of the highs and lows Flipkart faced over the years, it is still running high on success and is unstoppable too. Such enterprises are important for the revolution in the economy today. This is the next big opportunity to meet the need of a young, fast-growing aspirational population here in India!

Thus a vision attracts intangible forces that take on their own power and manifest into the results leading to the success of the venture visualized! One sound idea is all one needs to achieve success. Every time you see the words Coca-Cola, just remember that its vast empire of wealth and influence grew out of a single idea. The curiosity of an Atlanta pharmacist led him to create a distinctive tasting soft drink that could be sold at soda fountains. It could not be even imagined at that time that Coca-Cola would become a world-wide thirst killer for decades to come. Success comes to those who become success conscious! Millions of people look at the achievements of Henry Ford as a result of good fortune, or luck or genius or whatever it is that they credit for Ford’s fortune. But Henry Ford was a success, because he understood and applied the principle of success.





To dream anything you want to dream,
that is the beauty of the human mind.
To do anything that you want to do,
that is the strength of the human will.
To trust yourself to test yourself
that is the courage to succeed!


The reward is worthy of your effort! Will you make the start and be convinced?

Why should Startups look at unsuccessful entrepreneurs as business mentors?

Entrepreneurs, particularly startup entrepreneurs are risk takers. We do not conform to the norms of safe play but are always on the lookout to push the boundary of trade and commerce to develop new opportunities and markets sometimes even where none exist.


We know that failure is the stepping stone to success and are not deterred by our own failures but press on towards our goal with single minded determination and take the help of people who have got the experience and calibre to help us.
So why is it that we do not even think of taking the help of people who have done it and seen it all but were unable to achieve their goal. Yes we are talking about unsuccessful entrepreneurs!
Anyone who embarks on the entrepreneurial journey dreams of his startup achieving great heights in the days to come but the unsavoury reality is that 90% of startups in India fail within the first 5 years.
They fail not because of want of dedication, effort or enthusiasm but despite that due to common mistakes …

4 long years of Painful yet Successful journey of "Outsourced CMO"

It has been 4 long years since I made the life-changing yet the most difficult decision of my life, the decision of leaving a completely stable, well-paying job & the last one from the major business conglomerate of India ,to work on a completely unique, least known concept. The decision of leaving the well-paying job proved to be even more difficult, especially if you are the only earning member in the family, with retired parents and several mouths to feed, taking care of various loans stacking up, which is the true scenario in my case. Amidst all these, doubt and anxiety were at its peak as entrepreneurship appeared as an alien term after giving more than two decades to the corporate world. Self confidence and faith on the concept of "Outsourced CMO" was the only driving force to keep me motivated through the journey as I was confident that the concept of “Outsourced CMO" is the much-needed concept in the world of SME/ Startups, as it's an expensive business fo…
