Rockstar 2011 All Promo Songs (30 Secs)

I generally don't embed any music on my blog. But with the amount of hype and delay the music company has made for the release of the music, i had to post this.

Types of Startups !


Now that we have an answer to “What do we need to start a startup?” comes the next question –  “What are the types of startups?” / “What type of Startup my company would come under?”
As Steve Blank explains  in a detail here, the six types of Startups
  1. Lifestyle Startups : “The Passionate Startups”                                                                   These are the individuals that make their Passions and interests into a startup. A web designer or a Painter is living their life they love and Money is secondary to them.
  2. Small Business Startups : “The Everyday Startups”                                                            These are the every day businesses.They make almost 99.7% of total companies. Consultants, Grocery Stores, Electricians etc., fall under this category
  3. Scalable Startups : “The Born to be Big Startups”                                                               These are the ones who always believed that their product will change the world. Facebook, Twitter, Skype etc., are all path defying and have achieved big.
  4. Buyable Startups : “The Born to Flip Startups”                                                                  These are the ones who always wanted to develop their product, make it popular and sell it to a bigger firm for a good profit.
  5. Large Company Startups : “The Big Innovative Startups”                                                   With more and more new startups coming up each day, it has become more difficult for the larger companies such as Microsoft, Google etc., to grow through “Sustaining Innovation” ( Offer new products that are variants of their core products. For Example : Google Docs or Calendar). These companies now have focused on “Disruptive Innovation” (Create entirely new products than their core products. For Example : Android from Google)
  6. Social Startups : “The Difference making Startups”                                                           These are the ones that want to make this world a better place and are not to create wealth for the founders.                                                                                                                            
    1. So, choose which one does your Dream Startup is and leave your valuable comments.

Dream Big !

Dream Big

Between the great things we cannot do and the small things we will not do, the danger is that we shall do nothing.  - Adolph Monod

Everyone wants to do great things and achieve greater goals. They even have great ideas to go with their capabilities. But still, the only thing that stops them from achieving their goals is the “Belief” in them. With belief in their capabilities and ideas comes the attitude to take risks. Even in a college game, there is a risk of loosing the toss even before the start of the game(Forget about the game). For something that is destined to change the future of yours as well as the world’s, taking risk is never a wrong idea. And always remember “You have a 50% chance of being successful if you take a risk, if you don’t you end up at 0%”

So friends, Always Dream Big and Don’t fear about the risks!

By the way, I would like to suggest an excellent read Enchantment by +Guy Kawasaki . This would make an great learning experience for enthusiastic entrepreneurs.

People I Admire

This post has been long overdue.Lying in my drafts to be posted for a few months, finally polished it and here it is.
As we grow older, we find someone to look up to. Virtually everyone has someone that they admire. Over time, there have been several people who have influenced various aspects of my life, based on their personal characteristics, accomplishments, and values. I admire them and aspire to be like( or better than) what they are.
  • My Mom -  After losing my father in an accident when I was just 13, it was my Mom who has been taking care of entire family through all the difficult times. She is strong willed,kind hearted,selfless and sacrificial.I save my admiration for her because of all she has done for me in my life. She is a person who taught me many important lessons which will help me in my life. She has an undeclared philosophy of never to get depressed when you fail. To her, I am an open book. She has been a support to me in all of my adverse situations. She always motivated me to take new challenges and never to back out of them. Whatever I am Today and whatever I am going to be Tomorrow, I owe it all to her.
  • A R RAHMAN -  I have already blogged about this Genius quite a few times. My admiration to him grew with me. I literally worship him! I call him the GOD!! There are several days in my life I lived just on his music. There is a healing power in it. Be it the soothing “Bombay Theme” or the effervescent “Rangeela Theme”, he has been a true “Rockstar”!  One of the reasons why I admire him may be that I can correlate his childhood to mine and also struggle he faced to become the face of the nation,making Indians all over the world proud. Say Jai Ho!!
  • My Uncle / Teacher / Mentor Mr. K. Govardhan Reddy -  Being Principal of the school I studied and also my Uncle, he played a major role in my life. I still remember when he made me to sit in between two toppers of my class to learn Math( I always was below average in Math) from them in our reading class. I was always wondering in my childhood how a person can have so much of knowledge and education (MSc, MEd, MBA) as him. He has this ability to listen what we had to say, to empathize with and to understand our point. I had Participated ( and Won) several “General Knowledge” “Essay Writing” and “Painting” competitions only with his support. He has been a true inspiration not only to me but a few hundred students who studied in the school. Personally, he has been a great support for me to pursue my MBA. Over the years, he successfully made the transition from a strict principal to a great mentor. Now a successful Businessman, he will always remain a shining example for me.
Now that I have finished this task of putting together the people I admire, lies ahead a huger task of following their footsteps, which I am trying with my baby feet.Winking smile
