Starting a new business needs some essentials to be in place first - here are a few pointers for those with entrepreneurial dreams.
Starting a new business is a leap of faith. So it’s always beneficial to know what you need to do – some essentials to be in place. Here’s the help you need for your dream of becoming an entrepreneur.
When I had resigned from my corporate job to pursue an alternate career path almost a decade ago, entrepreneurship was not really the talk of the town.
However, the scenario has changed completely today and it is wonderful to see talks about entrepreneurship in every forum and platform. Even the Government has been coming up with numerous initiatives and schemes to support and encourage entrepreneurs. There has been an upsurge in the number of small and medium scale businesses run by women which is not just a great sign for the economy, but is also very inspiring.
As a part of my work, I have been mentoring many women on entrepreneurship and have discovered that though women have amazing ideas and execution skills, sometimes lack of direction and right guidance can hinder their growth. I have realized that a little bit of hand-holding at the beginning goes a long way in instilling confidence, clarity and an insatiable hunger in them.
Based on my interactions with women trying to establish their ventures in various industries, the most common point/query that keeps coming up during discussions is – “What are the basic and important things to keep in mind or put into place while starting a new business or venture?”
In this post, I am not going to talk about registering the business and similar tasks that are obvious and process-oriented. Rather, I will be focusing on the mental, intuitive and skill-based aspects of entrepreneurship. These points would be applicable for small/medium scale enterprises.
Be clear about your vision because everything else follows from here.
You have a passion and you want to convert it into a profitable business. This is wonderful but it’s important to think beyond the products and services before starting itself.
Ask yourself these questions – What is the problem you are trying to solve? What value do you wish to add to those you want to reach out to? What kind of impact do you wish to create? Answering these questions are crucial to starting a new business, because these answers will drive all your decisions and strategies.

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
