Entrepreneur and Love- A short story

"When you stereotype me as one of this society, i have the unconscious obligation to live up-to the expectations of that stereotype. Therefore, i refuse steadfastly to be stereotyped, and apologize for not fulfilling the expectations attached. Let me be random, unexpected, unabashed, unrepentant, and spontaneous. Why should i be always be crumbling under a pressure of the unconscious fact that my actions should be meant to appease you, please you, and conform to your and your…

No Country for Old Planners!

A few years ago while I was in the midst of presenting a multimillion dollar online media plan for a high profile client, I was interrupted by a question as I moved from the Strategy portion of the presentation to the actual media plan and site list.

I am the dream that you dream

I am the song that you sing

I am the thought that lingers in your mind

I am the puzzle that you try to unwind

I am the tears that you refuse to see

Those burns and bruises that you caused on me

I am the pain, I am the pride

I am the dark secret that you want to hide

I have the best job in the world. Thank You.

Construction is a thankless job, I have heard this from everyone I know. But strangely it’s not true. What I do is the best job in the world.

Frankly, there’s nothing more satisfying that running your own business, making money and at the same time getting appreciated for that by everyone involved.

Business is a beautiful thing. There are no losers. At our Almond Tree project, my landlord got phenomenal value and my clients got beautifully done up homes at an amazing value…
