Sales is not a sprint but a marathon!!

I happened to watch a portion of a documentary on marathon running. What I learnt is that it calls for more preparation than what is required for a sprint. Endurance is key for a marathon. While speed and agility are important for a Sprint, one should save energy and stay in the game at a [...]

An Interior Designer reveals his secret!

I asked him how me manages his customer data, in the hope that I will generate interest for a CRM. He is my friend. And it was a casual conversation. He laughed & said "we don't have too much data to manage". What he said after that makes sense. He said that he & his [...]

Where do you get ideas, ask my friends!

It makes me think. Where do I really get ideas to write? It's a beautiful rainy day. Sitting by the side of the window in our beautiful office, my thoughts are flowing and my fingers are typing them as they flow. It's 10 past 6 in the evening. Except for the occasional interruptions I have [...]

Great Conversations start with empathy

All of us humans have a basic need to be understood. What we stand for, why we do what we do, where are we going & what gives us satisfaction. This is the core of all human beings. Let us think for a moment when was the last time we had a great conversation with [...]

Two Peas in a Pod!

That's exactly how you and your customer should look like. The phrase "Two Peas in a Pod!" means "Two people who are very similar, typically in interests, dispositions, or beliefs".

“Pogo TV is visible even when the TV is off” says my friend!

May be because his kids are watching it all the time, it got etched on to the screen. Though my friend joked, it can be true as well. I have seen this happening in Windows desktop computers. Even when the system is shut down and the monitor is off, you can see a dim windows [...]

Are you in the top of the mind recall?

What comes to your mind when you think of a particular category of Product or Service? That is called as the top of the mind recall. Brands slog it out in the market to achieve this. 50% of the sale is done already. The consumer has already made up her mind. To go with Amazon [...]

What helped me win deals & what didn’t?

It has been a roller coaster ride for me in the school of entrepreneurship. Once you become an entrepreneur, nobody tells you what to do and what not to do. You are the boss. And the buck stops at your table. Well, choosing to have a mentor is definitely a good option. Even if you [...]
