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 [...]

Big Potatoes rise to the Top on a rough road!

American football player Knute Rockne said this: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” When floods or Tsunamis cause a havoc, we have seen people rising to the occasion and providing help.

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 [...]

“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 [...]

What inspires me?

Bold ideas, empowering people, democratising the opportunities for everyone, having no biases, making everyone achieve are some of the things that inspire me.
