I watched this video by Gary Vaynerchuk today. I wish I had seen this 5 years ago when I was graduating from college. Back then I had no fucking idea about what I was going to do with my life. I remember I wanted to have a company of my own, but that was kind of a fantasy or a day-dream — something to be done in the future by an older and more mature me. I had neither any clue nor any calibre to start my own business. It is about not taking the existing system for granted and challenging the norm thereby designing a better system. I was just another cog in the big machine without even realising it. I have been raised in a middle-class Indian family where the convention is to study hard, get into a decent college, get a job preferably a Govt. And like me, all the kids in the neighbourhood also flocked at the local art school. During my school days, there was no way we could think of entrepreneurship.
I’m 27. I left my job a couple of months back to start my own company.
