Love-Flings with Startup's

3: The Attempt 


As a kid I was always told by parents and teachers participation is important or attempt to do a particular thing is important.Well I say it's partially right attempt gives analyze your skills , defects and what more needs to be done in second attempt.So here my story of attempt , my attempt to reach a stage higher of social and career aspects.





As a kid and matter of fact even today(27 years 4 months) my mom-dad never supported me starting my own ventures, been always suppressed by him saying I am acting like a fool.Well I won't blame them for being old school or conservative or living typical middle class mentality.

Attempt 0: Dates almost a decade back when I was like 10-12 years old , I loaned 2INR from my maternal Uncle and got some note stickers , Disney stickers and some night glowing radium. And I sold it to my first and second cousins , neighbors and classmates.Well this went well for a while but when my mom found out me doing sales I was slapped and asked to stop the "scandalous" selling and asked me to return money to all my cousins and friends. Well on lighter note I still laugh at it at times whenever I think of it.

Attempt 1: Well it took me a long time to break out of shell and try something new , it happend in 2010 July when I was working with Thomson Reuters.
I decide to do gigs by responding to ads of people on www.craigslist.com .Idea was to build static websites, Did bid couple of projects in alliance with Krishnasumanth , Vijish and Nimesh but it didn't  turn out to be effective and first official failure.

Attempt 2: Attempt no 2 was in think tanks after the failure of attempt#1 and while "The First Step".
This time I formed a alliance with Nikhil Jain , Shailesh Patil and Shivanand Walitagi , started off well . Planning was good,right mind set right people but place to looks for projects. www.freelancer.com became the hunting ground for out bidding. Initial got couple of C++ student assignment and Technical research projects earning couple of $ but it didn't last long. Bidding bigger projects didn't fit into our professional bandwidth with everyone moving ahead with career(money) or getting into marital bliss
this turned out to be failure.

Attempt 3: Well this is were I am as of today date 03/28/2013 . Carrying Market research for GPS/GSM technologies in India, bidding projects on www.freelancer.com website , submitting Alpha research ideas for Motorola Solutions and keeping a tab of thoughts in my journal maybe someday even some silly of thoughts can be innovative.

In all these attempt I have learnt little bit of management skills , few technical skills  but still there is a way to go before I make it big.
