Therodinhoods is supposed to be a meeting place for minds fostering entrepreneurship,recently there is too much negativity in discussions and complaints for a moment I thought I ve logged on to complaints forum,come on with a user base and employees running into thousands,there are bound to be trivial issues,sorry to use the word trivial I felt looking at some complaints,and anyone will feel the same exept the aggrieved person,lets stick to discussions which will be productive for all Rodinhooders.after all what are we trying to gain by suggesting ways to improve to a Hyundai dealership.for a moment I thought I'm going through a blog of alok,but I believe it's a place for conversations and meaningful at that,I mean sorry to say that alok,but these days it's like ur blog where everything from u buying a car,meeting a prospective builder is becoming a topic of discussion.come on guys fostering entrepreneurship is about positivity and let's drive conversations towards meaningful discussions.
i understand where you're coming from. and i'm sorry you feel that way.
listen to where i come from. every time a rodinhooder posts a complaint (for which we've created a Pain in the Butt! category) i wince. i actually shake my head because it doesn't add value to the landing page! it doesn't look glorious. it's not wow content. it doesn't deserve a rodinhood t-shirt!
and then i tell myself, hey! what if someone benefits from sharing this problem?! what if another rodinhooder can help this person sort his/her issue out?! WHAT IF THE COMPANY RESPONDS??? and you know what, y'day tikona broadband became a member and addressed a rodinhooder's problem.
reliance did the same thing a few weeks back.
we all run our own start ups/ventures but more importantly, we all live similar experiences in life. and if sharing pains & pleasures helps other people, then why not?
sharing learnings is a huge huge part of "fostering entrepreneurship". "crowd wisdom" helps struggling entrepreneurs.
sudhakar, i'm happy you voiced your concern here. what would make me happier is seeing you post something that "fosters entrepreneurship" and wows all of us. therodinhoods is just as much yours as it's mine or the next person's!
i've got an advertising background, so my experiences and analogies are ad agency related. in an agency the creatives always want to do award winning work - "something we can enter in this year's abby's". but sometimes you have to let go of creativity and focus on functionality - something that would really benefit the client in the long run. so you end up doing non award winning work but something that works wonders for your client's business.
i'm looking fwd to your post sudhakar - something that drives a meaningful discussion. and i truly mean it!
p.s: we also have categories called "just for fun", "non business", "creativity" - we want to be open & flexible about the kind of content our members share...
Sudhakar and Asha,
I have a different take.
Therodinhoods is the what is on peoples minds. Remember the brand stands for 'thinking and doing'
If Hyundai HO has received a complaint and they do receive improvement ideas to become better - why not.
Some of most important things in life are bitter - whether they are in words or deeds. And no one can time them.
So, I am NOT purposely gonna write 'Happy' posts. Thats pretending to be a B grade Bollywood movie.
