Entrepreneurs Ahoy!

The only common thread that weaves all aspiring entrepreneurs together is a dire need to own their own time. The only fear that holds them back is the fear of failure. However, the spirit of romanticism associated with entrepreneurship is so overwhelming that the fear of failure is perhaps a small dynamic associated with the entrepreneurship equation.

Having worked with entrepreneurs across continents and cultures, my experience is varied. However, the reality is such that most ideas instead of competing in the entrepreneurial ecosystem of just a geographical location are businesses that should organically compete with a globally interwoven ecosphere to measure their adaptability in a globally connected economy of the world. 

Entrepreneurs across geographical locations, invariably aspire to repeat local successes.  
This reflects in their business models, commercial models and pattern of ideas. 
The entrepreneurial infrastructure of a geography seems to determine the evolution of business acumen to a greater extent. 

However, whereas the North American entrepreneurs seem to be more dependent on entrepreneurial infrastructure to support their businesses, entrepreneurs in Asia and Middle East seem more pre-disposed to devise innovative business models to work around entrepreneurial infrastructure gaps.  

The most important considerations  however work in tandem. Are you right for entrepreneurship ? And is Entrepreneurship right for you?

Either ways, the risks associated with your idea in business, often are lesser considerations in the event of the romanticism associated with entrepreneurship. So what should an entrepreneurial person identify in the process to evaluate his/ her capabilities?
When entrepreneurs approach their business idea, it should not be at a stage way into the process when they evaluate their skills, strengths, aptitude and personal circumstances consistent with running their business. Just passion is not enough to carry a venture through. This is my advice to most entrepreneurs who approach me with their business ideas. Opportunity assessment is as important as skill assessment. However, commitment and focus; though most essential are only subservient to viability and process.
Thus, starts my series in entrepreneurship across domains.

SO WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN ?

We have been fighting a religion defined definition of “ when did the life of a fetus begin”. It is a trap. The debate around this whole concept is so ridiculous that when you see pages of theories being written about the exact time “life took a birth”

Why I call this entire argument ridiculous is because technically everything is life. A cell is a life. An ant is a life, a plant is a life. Zygotes are life too. However, if you choose to mourn the zygote the same way you chose to mourn taking the dead cells off the bottom off your feet- is a decision you need to make with yourself.



All of these arguments around “life” distract from the actual issue, which is that no human should be required to share their organs with another human. No human should be required to sacrifice their life for another human. The intention or reason behind abortion is irrelevant in the context of the right to bodily autonomy.
I would argue that the Liberal “pro-choice” people who aggressively insist that abortio…

THE ABORTION FIGHT IS NOT ABOUT ABORTION

It's about firing the 2020 base. And the mainstream media is helping Trump


When Trump spewed his most preposterous lie about abortion in a rally about how full-term babies were killed by Doctors; do you think no one in the crowd was grown up enough to know that it was a lie? These are full grown people who make more important and logical decisions in their lives every day- what to buy; what to do, where to spend, how to earn a living. Do you think they do not know that Trump was concocting imagery for the benefit of creating a national debate about disgust towards the concept of “abortion”? Abortion is painful. Emotionally, it never leaves a woman. I aborted in 1998, then miscarried in 2008 and 2011. Each time, I named those cells and fetuses, celebrate their lives and created a story for their absence in mine, those cells, which could not find viability, for one reason or the other. So for someone, and these 25 white men, and several others, who have never been through that life-…

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 




The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.
