Everyone wants to be someone and to do something in life that will make them feel proud of their achievements.
There’s a new word floating around in everyone’s mind these days -Start Up? ..one word and everyone seems excited about. Sound really cool isn’t it? It’s the new fad. I may not know too much about it myself, so I thought the best thing to do was.. ‘google about it’ and I got the following:
What is a Start-Up?
A startup is a young company that is just beginning to develop. Startups are usually small and initially financed and operated by a handful of founders or one individual and these companies offer a product or service that is not currently being offered elsewhere in the market.
Okay! Maybe I am not qualified to talk about a serious topic like a Startup, lets leave it to the people with the business heads. Here, I’m not talking about starting up a company or anything of that sort, but for those enterprising people who want to start something on their own – could be one kind of a start-up maybe? It couldn’t be that difficult to think up of something different and unique to find ways to make money.
Now to broadly categorize people in the world-there are basically two kinds of people, the enterprising ones that want to start something of their own and others who are content working for other people. Both ways are cool, as long as there is a constant money flow happening.
While nowadays many people don’t want to ‘be told what to do’ and ‘work according to rules’..they end up with starting up with something of their own, which going by the recent trend seems to be the way forward but then.. there is always that risk factor ‘WHAT IF?!’ Yes those two words specifically (What if?!) that people like me.. will not want to take a chance because if there’s one thing you can’t predict is ‘response’. We can plan for a lot of things but eventually we still would want a positive response right? Will my idea work? Will it bomb? Will I get any customers..questions that will haunt you from the day you start business.
That’s where sometimes I feel – the safest option is to work under a company or an institute that can provide you that cushion, that security you need at least initially and then maybe, if you can gather up some confidence and a little capital, you could start up something small of your own gradually.
I know a few friends who have started their own small businesses and like every businessman/woman will tell you, while it is tough in the initial stages, you just need to keep going hoping that somewhere..sometime you might strike gold, or sometimes even silver will do. It’s a chance you need to take, if it does well, great but then you will also have to have a back up plan, just in case plan A fails. However that said, the motive shouldn’t only be to earn money but to deliver quality, in whatever field it may be.
Like everyone I have a vision..a dream too. How much can I make that dream a reality needs to be seen. I know I can do it..I am definitely blessed with the talent for it. I’ve already taken a few steps in that direction..now its more like a leap of faith and the rest will follow.
People from around the country are looking at Goa. Most of whom who are already running successful business ventures around the state. Goa is throwing up new ideas on an everyday basis..what’s yours? what’s mine..? Time to make our small contribution maybe?
