Before i start , I will like to thank you Mr.Alok for building such a great Platform + Hats off to you sir for hosting wonderful events. i haven’t attended yet but topic you choose are just superb . and i am active member in this site from last few months and as Techie I have seen many FOURMS and have build too so i know it is tough job to keep it clean so Special Hats Off to you mam (asha) for filtering all the posts .
Being your own boss was the major reason to start my entrepreneurship journey and its tough to digest that you are not. This month my Our company completed one year and this blog i will like to share something that i learned about “bossing” in start up.
“Be your own Boss – Keep ordering yourself”
ONE part should be giving orders and other following those orders. I believe this is easy way to convince that you are BOSS. Order yourself to do whatever is needed to done; it may be from going 100 KM far for 1 minute meeting to sweeping or cleaning window of the office. I HAVE DONE IT ALL.
Don’t know why but i have huge amount of self esteem and I do this trick eveytime to console myself.
“You need to be SACHIN “
You can’t be just excellent in one field, you need to be all rounder , people in my era will know that whenever wickets were not used to fall sachin was called and he always used to take wicket, and I believe this is one of the major reason that SACHIN has this great fame . NO matter how small it is, if your TEAM is in trouble you need to gear up and save your team.
My office has Glass Door, When we bought office , Doors were extreme Dirty and as guy was charging 500 INR which was costly for us so I decided to do it myself , Seeing me cleaning doors , other members joined me and glass was cleaned in 20-30 minutes. Trust me you will always get support from your team if you initiate.
“ALSO BE David“
Another Legend, Be the WALL between Trouble and Team or start-up still be humble, never take fame (EVERYTHING IS BECAUSE OF ME), trust me it’s not.
“Treat your employee as your Girlfriend”
Not literally, I mean You can’t risk to have Break up “Ittni Acchi Dusrid Easily Nahi Milti ” I mean is Be Good to them give them space, credit even if you are not satisfied with their work, just at the end give them push to work hard and to improve the quality (You can’t do this with your GF though). Keep them Happy, It’s easy to keep them also if you have correct ones (Applied to both). You cannot treat them as employee of MNC or some big company are been treated , because in many ways we need to deliver better then them with less money to spent.
Finally “There will be movements when you will feel that you have achieved or lost everything but don’t misunderstand that activity with achievement Or failure .”
I am just a 1 year kid as entrepreneur, so i might be wrong in at some places, will love to know if I am.
