Start-up Problems

Start-up. This word has been seen everywhere these days. When you ask any Tom, Dick or Harry what are they currently doing, they'll tell you they have a start-up idea or are in process of getting the start-up (for lack of a better term) started up.

Start-ups are booming in India. What was earlier called as "I have a business" is now known as the cooler version, I have a start-up. But though the dreams of these entrepreneurs are very big, there are way too many obstacles on the way, Startup problems at every milestone.

Take a look at this funny video by Vistaprint for instance:

I must admit, we Indians have a very "Chalta Hai" attitude. Not only in a start-up scenario but also in day to day life. When the auto-rickshaw driver does not have Rs.2 change to give back to you; When your colleague conveniently forgets to give back the Rs.100 they borrowed from you; or when someone you hired gives a random excuse for coming late to work- every time our thought is- "Jaane do, chalta hai."

But this laid-back attitude can be very harmful on the long term. To motivate you or your partners/colleagues to work towards achieving your start-up goals, you need to get rid of the Chalta Hai attitude. If you remember Kabir's Dohas from school time, it says it all in a couplet -

Kaal Kare So Aaj Kar, Aaj Kare So Ub
Pal Mein Pralaya Hoyegi, Bahuri Karoge Kub

[Tomorrow's work do today, today's work now
if the moment is lost, the work be done how]

For a start-up, everything should be in perfection, even if it is something as basic as a business card; it is something that gives anyone the first impression of your start-up and hence should be proof-read and well made. I love how easy the process is made, thanks to Vistaprint. I have been using their services since a long time now, and happy with the results each time! Chalta hai ko chalta karo, and then see the boom in your startup!

  4. That is a very good (and funny) video about Indian startups. You are absolutely right in that we usually have a chill and laid back attitude. Startups cannot afford such a luxury. Vistaprint is a great site for printing. If you're looking for another option, try PrintStop
