Top 5 Learnings from the most Successful Entrepreneur of all Times - Steve Jobs

2013-08-18T20:10:50.109+05:30

Steve Jobs is irreplaceable. The world will never see a man like him again. A great innovator, leader and a very simple man. There are countless cases on his style of leadership and management. There are just a handful of successful entrepreneurs like him who has given so much to man kind. Here is the list of my 5 Life Lessons that Steve Jobs has Taught us Love. Sacrifice. Humility. The ability to overcome. Steve Jobs has taught us many valuable lessons throughout his lifetime, some of which we may not even be aware of. Through the ups and downs, the positives and negatives, the happy times and hardships, Steve Jobs muddled his way onwards, teaching us along the way. 1.0 Family Isn't Just Blood Steve Jobs was born in 1955 to two graduate student, Syrian political science professor Abdulfattah "John" Jandali and speech therapist Joanne Simpson. Unable to cope with raising a child, Simpson wanted to give Jobs up for adoption, and Jandali obliged. Shortly after he was placed for adoption, however, Jandali and Simpson married and had another child, Mona Simpson. Ah, the irony. Jobs was quickly adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs – he was still an infant when his new parents found him. He spent his childhood tinkering with electronics with his dad in the old family garage – this would later help his successful entrepreneur career in the technology field. Jobs didn't even know about his biological parents until he was well into his late twenties, when his real father finally contacted him. How would you feel if at 27 you discover your mom didn't want to, your dad willingly gave you up for her, and then they had your sister and kept her?  If there's anything to learn from Jobs' experience with being raised and loved by people that didn't have him by birth, it's that you don't have to be blood to be someone's family.  Another lesson here is that you have the ability to forgive, if it's in your heart to do so. Would you forgive your parents were you in Jobs' position? 2.0 You Don't Have to Have a College Degree to Achieve Greatness Jobs dropped out of college in his first semester. And Jobs isn't the only successful entrepreneur to achieve amazing things without any degree at all. Microsoft's Bill Gates and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg both dropped out of Harward. Kodak's George Eastman didn't even finish high school! Have you ever been told that you can't do anything more than flipping burgers or pushing carts without academic achievement? Next time someone tells you who you can and can't be because of your education level, don't listen. Who decides what level of success you can be except you? The facts are simple. It doesn't take a genius education to actually be educated. You don't need a degree to succeed. You don't need to get into the best school possible to succeed. You just have to believe in yourself, and never let anyone else get in the way of your dreams. 3.0 There's a Reason for Everything At 30 years old, Steve Jobs was actually fired from Apple – the company he'd helped create! But instead of giving up, Jobs leapt on what he saw as an opportunity and got right back on the horse. He bought Pixar Animation Studios from the famous and beloved George Lucas for only $10 million. Jobs then went on to learn about computer animation, tinkering with things and ideas along the way. Before long, he'd created a full-length film known today as Toy Story. From this adorable movie came hundreds of others, earning Jobs billions of dollars in the pro cess. "I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me," Jobs said. "The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life." Within the year, this successful entrepreneur also invented the NeXT computer, which caused a major decrease in income to Apple's company. He was hired back to Apple as an advisor soon after, and became CEO a year later. Jobs[...]



Indian Entrepreneur Ready to Take on Facebook

2013-08-18T19:31:01.801+05:30

Indian Entrepreneur WorldFloat ready to take on Facebook, Twitter I read this news in the morning today and was proud to find out that one of our Indian entrepreneur is ready to challenge the world with his innovation and leadership. Social networking is growing popular day by day and another addition is WorldFloat.com, a site which is virtual replication of real life in motion. Check this interesting story by Shobha. Imagine being in Chandni Chowk and floating over to meet someone in New York. Or playing a virtual game and making money. Or advertising in a billboard in any city. Futuristic? It's already happening on WorldFloat, the only Indian social networking site. With one lakh sign-ups daily, it could seriously challenge Facebook and Twitter in the months to come. Pushkar Mahatta (37), its founder, says when he started the site last June, he got 12,000 sign-ups the first month. Today, it has 7 million users. "By December, I hope to have 30 million users. Presently, 80% are from India. We're in 1,600 cities and hope to scale this to 43,000," he says. Venture capitalists have offered up to $300 million to buy him out, but he's not selling. The idea is intriguing. WorldFloat works on Float technology which allows users to virtually float to different cities and connect with people by tapping the photos moving around. "It's not confined to groups like Facebook is. There is versatility of movement and cultures here. One can also put messages on the world wall and get a global response. Most users are men and women wanting to meet each other. Interestingly, women from smaller cities too are approaching men," says Mahatta. "And it is secure, as we have systems in place to block out offensive words." Surprisingly, Mahatta is not a Facebook user, though he uses elements from top websites for WorldFloat. There are also sections on travel, health, movies, etc. It also offers virtual billboards for advertisers in any city, making the revenue model a surefire success. WorldFloat's winning mantra, however, is Treasure Hunt, a virtual game which allows people to make money. Users have to notch the maximum points as they click on 100 denomination currency notes floating around. After each session, a winner will win Rs 10,000 if he has bought a Rs 100 ticket through WorldFloat. Otherwise, he'll get up to Rs 1,000. While Rs 100 is small change, it can reach humongous proportions if many play. Interestingly, Mahatta, a philosophy and psychology student from Australia, is into real estate in Delhi and Gurgaon and mining in Rajasthan. He admits he was always good with money. A voracious reader, Mahatta reads at least 10 tech blogs every day. So focussed is he that he retreats to a quiet nest everyday to put on his thinking cap. The idea for WorldFloat came to him after he read Steven Johnson's book "Where Good Ideas Come From", which talks of liquid networks. "I immediately saw people as bubbles. I then recruited some of the best IT engineers to put together this unique float technology which was hard to code," he says. Mahatta says any idea which is unique, has worldwide connectivity, is inexpensive and marketed well, will be successful. He has big plans. He wants to start brain games, an online education university and virtual shops. And eventually, fund innovative ideas. "There are many in India with brilliant ideas but no funding. I want to change that." Will he eventually be India's Mark Zuckerberg?

Economic Engine is starting to Purr...

2010-04-10T08:16:53.547+05:30

Job losses have started to reverse, and sales are up in some industries. It may be time to think about getting a business loan The fallout from this recession has made many businesses fail, but if you’re still standing that’s actually good news for you. All those customers will have to go somewhere else, and you’re in a unique position to actually expand your business as the economy starts to recover.

First, Your Business Model

Take a hard look at your business model with an eye to expanding your reach to customers both online and offline. Make no mistake even if you are a local business you should have an online presence. Outsource the creation of your site, if you have to, and make sure it has the features that will attract people to your door and make them loyal customers. You’ll want to take a look at the best ways to do business and include technological upgrades that can help you steam ahead against the competition. In terms of investments, technology is by far the cheapest, as it is a one-time expense that pays back dividends thereafter.

Second, Your Location

Reassess your location. Are you reaching the demographic you need to reach where you are? Moving a business is tough, but this recession has provided a unique opportunity for small businesses to expand their base of operations by buying commercial property while it is discounted. If you want a better locale, now is the time to get it. That may mean taking out a commercial loan and putting funds aside for moving and promotion of the new location.

Last, Hiring

Another great way to expand your business is through hiring. The rule of thumb is that hiring is always last, but this year might be different. With new federal incentives for hiring, your business can easily hire people and get 6.2% of the wages paid in a tax break for hiring in 2010. You do have to make sure your hire falls within the criteria for the Hiring Incentive to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act. This can help you expand your business and give someone a chance at a great job too!

2010-04-10T10:04:54.214+05:30

Students Loan Consolidation Programs

2010-03-23T15:00:18.290+05:30

Student Loan Consolidation Programs has never been easier with todays Internet resources at your finger tips. When looking for the best student loan consolidation information take some time to research the the process of getting the best rates and plans for yourself.So what does student loan consolidation involve I hear you ask? If you are a current or former student with school loans, you have probably been bombarded with mailed and on line solicitations to consolidate your debt. The loan application process can seem overwhelming, particularly if you have more than a couple of loans issued from a number of lenders. However, it is generally simple and straightforward if you are prepared. There are several advantages for having a student loan consolidation program and although they won't all apply to you, some of them will. Here is a brief overview of what you can expect when you decide to consolidate your student loans.First, you will need to choose a lender for your student loan debt consolidation It has never been easier than it is today because we have Internet resources available at our finger tips.There are many to choose from, but, in general, it's smart to stick to a well-established financial institution. These lenders will have a variety of payment plans and discounts, and they will be less likely to sell your loan to another lender in the future. There should never be a charge or fee for consolidating student loans. As well, a lender should not need to check your credit because Federal student loans are guaranteed by the U.S. government.Next, you will need to fill out a student loan consolidation application Remember to gather all the student loan consolidation information you have on your existing loans prior to filling out your application. Also, you will need to supply personal references. Before you sign your name on the application, make sure that you clearly understand the terms of the new loan. Ask about incentives and discounts that can help reduce your payment. Many lenders have forms you down load and on line calculators to determine the amount you will pay with your new loan.Once you have submitted your completed student loan consolidation application, the lender will send each of your loan holders a Loan Verification Certificate (LVC) to verify the amount owed on each of your Federal student loans. You can expect that your existing lenders will take up to 30 days to return the LVCs. Once these certificates are processed, the interest rate will be calculated and a disclosure statement is prepared. Checks will be issued to your lenders to pay off your loans, and your new consolidated loan will be issued.This entire process can take between 30 to 180 days to complete, and if information is missing from your application, it can take even longer. Most lenders have customer service representatives who will gladly keep you updated on the status of your loan application. Remember to continue to pay on your existing loans while your application is being processed. You will be financially responsible for these loans until the new lender has paid off them in full.Finally, keep in mind that interest rates on student loans are adjusted annually every July 1st. This year, rates will be increasing 2.1 percent. You can be assured of the lower rate if you submit a completed application early. If you have credit card debt you may be paying 20% plus interest. Interest rates are currently at their lowest for 40 years. Your new consolidated loan will have a low fixed rate of interest. Could there be a better time to consolidate your loans? Don't wait until the end of June to start the process.While consolidating student loans can be a time consuming task, with a little advanced preparation and research you can complete your application with minimal effort. And, once your new loan is processed, you will most certainly be thrilled wi[...]
