Entrepreneurship – It’s all about Caring & Daring

Entrepreneurship – It’s all about Caring & Daring

Since my childhood, I had faith in the reasoning of being-on-time. I believed in being a perfectionist. I never missed school nor my school bus and was dependably on time. The only thing which I always depended upon was TIME. I digested the hard fact TIME IS MONEY since the day I learned the functioning of the world. I had this good habit of waking up early, then drawing out a plan for the day and getting set to work. I believed in ‘Early to bed, Early to rise keeps a person healthy and wise,’ it was more than just a kindergarten rhyme to me.  It was important for me to have a discipline to follow because I certainly knew that if I wouldn’t have then somebody else’s discipline would be the thing to follow which I would despise.

When I began working on establishing my organization, I anticipated that my colleagues would acquire a similar rationality. I needed everybody to be on time and, ideally, even before the time they were due. At first, when my group was limited to a few people, I didn’t face many issues with people not showing up on time. But slowly and gradually when the team grew the issue penetrated the working culture, and as a result, I used to get furious with those who didn’t show up on-time. It bothered me and made me feel awful to do so yet they generally conveyed a generous smile in return since they were enthusiastic, had faith in the organization and shared the same vision with which I started this company. So, we all were trying to achieve the same thing but in our own ways.

I am proud of the ethics which I inherited from my parents; they have always taught me to follow the passion but not at the cost of family time. I inculcated the same thing in my company’s work culture. I used to get enraged, yet never needed them to work after the available time since family time is equally vital and I needed them to not bargain on that. I regularly constrained them to close down their tablet and leave the workplace, regardless of the possibility that it was just around 5 minutes of additional time to finish the work.

Amid the early phases of my start-up, I was energized and energetic about everything may it be planned or increasing the staff. But, within a year of aggressive work, I was drained out completely. My passion to achieve success somewhere incepted the plant of anger deep within me, and thus my energy was supplanted by anger. Thankfully I realized it before it went out of control and decided to beat this. I changed few propensities which got colossal thus changing my life as a business visionary.

1. It’s alright if the group come a few minutes late:

When your employees are faithful to their work and you, finishes their work on time, follows the deadlines and timelines, and accepts calls or communicates with your clients even on Sundays then YES, it is totally fine, regardless of the possibility that the colleague gets late. Time is not a constraint until and unless your work is not hampered or delayed. There is no point of your employees being on time if they do not delay any procedures or work. At the point when there is a culture of obligation and responsibility to work, the elements like BEING-ON-TIME seems little.

2. A subtle smile- that’s all you need: 

There was a time when my office work begun with this question “Who was late today?” but then I realized the inappropriateness of this question. This question drove away all the morning excitement in my office, and as a result, I stopped doing this. I keep on saying this wherever I go that with time and experience I have not only evolved my way of doing business but also myself. I am the “NEWER” version with each passing day. In the end, I changed this propensity. Presently I ensure that individuals around me smile and I even blurt some terrible jokes, on which even Siddhu paaji wouldn’t snicker, yet my colleagues would enjoy every bit of it. “Smile away the blues” is, in fact, a reality. It does not solve your problem but always helps you to find the solution. Presently, they are more than just employees. They are my companions more and resources to my company less. And trust me, I mean it.

And trust me, I mean it.

3. It’s not a Game-Of-Thrones:

Of course, every GOT lover would not agree with the title but don’t worry it’s not that Throne I am talking about. I am talking about the chair where bosses prefer to sit. We are a bunch of 3 crazy founders of EngineerBabu who never believe in acquiring the “HOT SEAT”. All three organizers sit with the group, none of us sit on purported Boss’s Throne, which helps us in building a neighborly association with the fellow members in the room. These seats are only utilized for meetings. In actuality, the “Royal position” is utilized by the assistants, partners and even the workplace kid according to their need.

4. Being successful doesn’t mean wearing all the fancy and exclusiveness:

During the initial days of EngineerBabu, we could pull off a great deal of money by cracking projects and finishing them winning our client’s trust. I was born and brought up in a middle-class family and thus never got a chance to try out expensive things. Once I started earning, I used to spend a great deal on extravagance. Like others, I wanted to wear an expensive range of garments and shoes, what is referred to as “BRANDED”. Before long I understood that it is making a discernible difference between my colleagues and me. I realized that that this had created a line between my employees and me and I didn’t want that to affect the friendly work culture. Thus, I pressed all costly garments, even stuffed my shoes, and returned to my regular dress-up. This line soon vanished, and we were back being great companions. These little things make a huge difference. You won’t believe the difference until and unless you practice it yourself.

5. Presently I am lethargic; I rest more, eat progressively and reflect day by day:

Earlier I used to work like a machine, considerations about “how to take the organization to the next level,” “How to increase the value of my associate’s life?”, “How to make them free?” used to keep me involved without stopping for even a minute. When you are new to this entrepreneur’s life, you try to do each and everything for everyone all at once, and this is quite natural. It’s the madness and passion that drives you to pull off such decisions simultaneously. When you work insane, you anticipate that others will do likewise, however that is not going to happen, and at last you will feel pushed. There was a time where I was so concerned that I could afford to miss my breakfast, lunch or potentially supper but never miss a customer’s call. Be that as it may, now I consider time, reflect, and go for everyday strolls and therefore, I am more lively and loaded with satisfaction. I have assigned the undertakings to my subordinates and given them full privileges. This helped me remain quiet, take better choices and focus on main problems.

6. Make communications and not just calls:

Let me elaborate it. Working with our clients, I am constantly required to contact my employees in case of any requirements or help or to get follow-ups. So, basically, I called them whenever I needed their help, nothing more – nothing less. Suddenly at one point, I realized that there is a shrouded thought process behind my call and that business and work was all that I spoke. I learned that occasionally it’s alright to talk something else (apart from your work) and spend extra time babbling with loved ones. Work is never going to leave you and vice versa. With regards to saving a little time, turn off your wifi and enjoy every bit of this present reality around you. It won’t only enhance your working capacity but fills you with new energy to work upon your thought process and take better decisions. The efficiency increases.

7. It’s about being social and not social media:

Everyone loves to kill their time over Facebook, don’t they? All you need to do is post some pictures, do some check-ins, post a status, leave comments and have fun. But, is that the best you can do with such a powerful tool like Facebook? Even I used to do the same when I got my hands-on with Facebook for the first time. I used to update about twice a day and kept updating my wall on a regular basis. I had this dependency thing. But later on I realized, it is the experience and aptitudes which mattered not the selfies. Facebook is much more profitable when utilized in a correct way. Individuals kill additional time in calculating the likes and approaching others for comments. We nowadays spend more time on clients since now we invest energy in conveying esteem and not on advertising.

8. Roles change, not people:

I began my vocation as a nerd. EngineerBabu needed me to administer deals, subsequently I learned deals. Things continued changing, contributions to my company continued changing, and now I am pleased to grab fancy names in our company’s portfolio. I believe that I began my vocation as a nerd. EngineerBabu needed me to administer deals. Subsequently, I learned deals. Things continued changing, contributions to my company continued changing, and now I am pleased to grab fancy names in our company’s portfolio. I believe that “Satisfaction is a myth, my dreams are way too big to get satisfied.” Because that’s the thing that keeps us struggling and keeps us on toes.  Next was development hacking, my organization needed me to be a good writer, and now I am pleased to be the contributor over some well-known online publishing medias. Same is the tale of My prime supporter “Aditi Chaurasia,” she began as an educator, later became a top women entrepreneur in India. She is one of the best website designers but then handles accounts at EngineerBabu. Thus, we have got numerous roles to play and have played it well.

Down the line, I don’t fancy unnecessarily about making and creating a major group of people and incubating them in my start-up. I believe in taking baby stepsI am content with the little group. I chose my clients wisely. My approach to growing business is not merely earning or making billion dollars just for myself, but I dream to fulfill the dreams of each and every person working with me. The people who believe in my dream are the greatest assets to my company. I want to see a cheerful smile on my client’s face whenever I finish their work. I believe in delivering satisfaction and gaining trust. No one is impeccable nor was I. We committed numerous errors and learned from them. We gained from different oversights and insights as well. We have grown together, and I want to continue this journey towards success in the same manner. When everyone is happy, there is no possibility of anything going wrong. You have to trust your decisions. Your gut feeling has to play at the front-foot.

We have Startups and Entrepreneurs to help you build wireframe by visualizing your need. You may get in touch with us at EngineerBabu.
