Startups are an Arithmetic Progression of your Dreams!
It is all about thinking out of the box. An experiment which is assumed to have the potential to emerge as a sensation, with the right mission and vision or call it illusion which gives your hypothesis wings to fly. It is only an experiment to prove that the target problem can be solved not only effectively and profitably but also in a profitably scalable manner!
Anybody can Dream, there is No Tax; Likewise, anybody can start a Startup.
Any dream which does not lead to sleepless nights should not qualify as a startup…
Merely cause of the fact, that it has already been executed a couple of times and has lost its unique essence. To start with such a pursuit was never a startup!
So the rule is, IF EASY IT’S NO MORE CHEESY!!!
Dreams do not lead to failures, never will; if done properly.
If u can Dream it, you can do it.
Startups are labelled as FAILED only when they are judged against the expectations defined at the time of their initiation. When the expected profit figures do not land up matching with the ones already predicted.
There are certain stepping stones you need to cautiously figure out, make sure not to leave any of it unturned ..
We wish Honey Bee knew the customers before producing her honey. Unlike, the bee, do your base research about your clients. It gives a refined edge to your product.
It’s a common human tendency to be a Spendthrift. However, a Startup is no less than playing with fire; you should rightly analyse where to spend and where to save. It’s not about being a miser, it’s about a smart allocation of your limited resources.

Suppose, if you are relying on the website, for customer acquisition, then you should spend on Content and web designing rather than wasting it on printed brochures.
Get your hands dirty with Tech codes. If you are a non-techie co-founder its the time to learn. You can get work done efficiently from others only when you have a hack of it yourself. You don’t have to become a pro, but a basic technical know-how is a must have.
Sell your product, even if you are not from marketing end.
P.S.: I am not asking you to be a Jack of all Trades, Master of None.
No, I m not asking you to reach your workplace with an empty stomach. Let your gut do all the thinking for your brains. Take firm decisions when required by trusting your empty gut, your intuition.
Money is just a by- product, don’t let it influence your passion to explore your dreams. The quest for instant money might drift you from your ultimate goal.
New blood now a days resort to Cash burnouts , it’s a marketing strategy where they sell their products below the cost, such difference is funded from their own pockets. It is a good strategy if implemented wisely to capture the masses overnight.
However, before it’s too long the cash run out, and the time to terminate the startup becomes as definitive as it for the sun to set once it rises. One should roll back your eyes, have a flashback of that very dream from where the journey started.
