How I became an Entrepreneur..

How I became an Entrepreneur….: A story of 13 year child.

My mother always liked to make her morning tea with fresh milk. And as a child I had taken most of her this habit. I still remember when as a school going 13 year old kid living in Jabalpur city, 365 days of the year my day would start at 6:30 am (except for the days I fell sick or pretend to be sick). A Milk Dairy which was 3 km away was used to close at 7 am, therefore everyday I was made to get up at 6:30 am to go and get fresh buffalo milk for Mom’s morning tea. So I will take my 24 inch bicycle on which my legs will desperately try to reach out for pedals and be on the task each morning.

It was not that we could not get milk delivered at home early or my mother was trying to make a saving on milk expense. On the other hand this was most inconvenient way of getting milk and also per litter price paid for milk was bit higher as it was pure milk. […]

Key Qualities of Successful Salesman

Every year thousands of youngsters starts their career in Sales. Everyone wants to succeed and fulfill their life’s dreams. But why, only very few are able to grow beyond a point in their career? Why only handful of them, in their life time, reach to the top of the corporate ladder? Why only very few salesman, can achieve the position of a Chief Executive Officer? Because they forget to focus on key qualities of salesman while building their career. So what are key qualities of successful salesman?

In my opinion, the successful salesman or people are not very different from any normal person. What makes them different is, their value system and attitude toward their own life. Here are few key qualities, which I noticed in successful sales people over the years:

1. Sense of Ownership: All successful sales person has this common trait in their personality. They always take charge of the job assigned to them and never fall short in terms of energy in the ownership. They share and feel the same pain as much business owner feels. They fight hard for their business. […]

Two Percent Rule

By Sanjeev Singhai.

Choice is ours that what we want to be in our one life? This world is ruled/ lead by the 2 Percent people. These 2 Percent people are the politicians, top bureaucrats, businessman, senior executives of large corporations and even mafia dons, gangsters and many more people who are in similar positions of power. What makes these people different is that these people are the best in their field’s and has worked hard to be in the current position and have passionately followed their dreams through out their life (even in the case of mafia dons). These people achieved, what they wanted for themselves.

We too need to arrive on this clarity at early stage of our life or career and decide that where we want to be? Whether we want to be in the 2 Percent people, who rule this world or we want to be part of balance 98% population? […]

Books for Good Career

I see, most of the people hardly read, it’s not important for them? Why people keep themselves away from reading and do not realise how it can impact them? Why people hesitate in self-training?
Once in their profession/ job, most of the people stop the learning process. Reading is one thing, given up first and people consider that studied are over and there is nothing left for them to learn. Or they think, one can learn on job or from day to day life. And learning stops for such people.

I always took up this topic in the trainings sessions, which I (or was used to) conduct for my team. I always stressed on importance of reading. I always advised people to invest money on reading or buying books, magazine or reading whatever is matter of liking to individuals. […]

1 kilometer covered – 4 years

One kilometer covered in four years – And I am sure after reading the topic, most of you must have thought of famous Rabbit and Tortoise Race story. If yes, than you are not right.

This is My Story of last four years in the city of Mumbai and my Horse Sense about it.
Four years back when I choose to get on with my current assignment with Buchanan Group, I never had clue where it will take me in time, which was yet to unfold. I must confess that was one of the most bold, strange and blind folded decision, I had ever taken (though some of you, who know me might say that I was always a risk taker).

On my return from South Africa after 3 months of initial induction in new business in mid 2007, the first challenge was to look for a small, low budget office to start up the business. […]
