I’m glad you are here!
Though I’m currently busy running a startup(link should come here soon) and parenting to my 4year old, my belief has always been that I should share all the learning, realizations and those cool “aha!” moments on my startup journey with you so that the knowledge doesn’t stay siloed in my head. That way I could spark some creative conversations on shared topics and even spot some new friends along the way.
This is not just another blog on Entrepreneurship and Leadership. My mission is to help you switch your journey from struggle & fear into safety & progress.
It applies to you if you are current or future business owner, CxO or manager of a team or just someone who wants to live great life build from his/her passion.
I’ll be challenging some common patterns people have on creating and managing organizations(like business, startup, ngo etc.) and offer you fresh a perspective.
I work on my startup fulltime for 8 years now. We’ve done some funding, financing, had few internal teams, had 10 coded prototypes, two of them online, one codebase offer buy etc. —hectic. More importantly we tried and ditched all the broken industrial patterns (like marketing, selling etc.) and developed new type of organization called Hub(released to the public soon) that helps you switch your journey from struggle & fear into safety & progress. So be sure to expect some great stuff here.
What stuff exactly you ask? Great articles, crazy mind triggers, reviewed takeaways like podcasts, (e)books and courses won’t be missed here.
And if that wasn’t enough, I’d like to flip few more switches for you:
introduce you to doers and thinkers whose ideas and stories are so powerful that just hearing them will change you
to give you an alternative to the “know-it-all, professional gurus”—you know, like myself. I want to prove you that no single person(nope, not even I) knows it all, and to show you that the best way to grow is to learn from a mix of smart people (like yourself I hope) who are willing to share their experiences and expertise.
to infect you with a Passion Based Leadership.
to encourage YOU to have a vision and a mission, not just a startup, not just a company for yourself, but a calling for helping people.
to act as a counter-weight to all the “startup guys” who try to convince you with their BS that the only reason to build a business today is so you can flip it tomorrow. The world is NOT changed by people who have an eye on the exit.
About articles on this blog; I keep articles deliberately short. I know time is valuable asset to you so I try to get my message across as fast as I can(never sacrificing quality of course).

Enjoy your day,
