The Business Model

Thank you for your mails and comments. And apologize to those who complained that they were missing the updates. I was settling into a new schedule, hence the gap.

As I work my own schedule through, I thought it would be interested in what I've been immersed in doing in the last fortnight. Very interestingly, its just up the alley for the entrepreneur series of this blog. You guessed it. Business Model Generation.

Perhaps the most thrown around phrase in the strategic management aisles. It is basically the method by which you determine the economic viability of the business; whether it creates a sustainable model or whether it's mission is to create money.

Let us elucidate some basic elements of what make business model a sound proposition.

a. Does your business model address a gap in the market? The gap may be a gaping requirement or a small simple process that increases the efficiency and ease with with a user conducts his life or business; as long as the gap is addressed in a simplistic model, it will justify its existence. And will be used.

b. Will the customer adopt your proposition? Business model changes in Netflix backfired and led to a huge crash in the value of the company when the customers refused to adopt the changes. Winning customers is an expensive proposition. Keeping them interested and using your product or services is more important for the sustenance of a business model.

c. Disruptive and engaging market differentiation and pricing models. Addressing customer pain points and using financial modelling with differentiation is a method adopted by many successful cloud and SaaS business models in the market currently.

d. Differentiating business models. Ebay and Amazon are path breaking business models which led the way to a new ecommerce economy. Whats next in the space? Where can disruption occur? Here are some leading questions to the new disruptions. Any ideas?

Next on the block- Online and Offline business models.

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…


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.
