4 Habits of Tech-Savvy Entrepreneurs

Every successful entrepreneur knows that their personal life might affect them professionally. This is why they also understand that a boost to their personal life (that often comes from various gadgets), might also come to reflect on the performance of their business. In a competitive environment, even the tiniest of advantages can make a stellar difference. With that in mind, here are several ways in which tech-savvy entrepreneurs exploit this phenomenon to their benefit.

1.      Smart mattress

As an entrepreneur, you’ll have to be the first one to arrive in the morning and the last one to leave at the end of the workday. If you add to this the fact that you simply have to leave some room for your friends and family (work-life balance is crucial), it will become more than apparent that you won’t have much time for sleep. Still, while the quantity of sleep is what it is, the quality can be improved with a purchase of a smart mattress.

With the aid of such a mattress, you can fall asleep much faster, wake up without an alarm and keep tabs on your sleep. This last part is more important than it may sound, seeing as how a lot of people with a sleeping problem might not even be aware of what the issue is. All they know is that they get up as tired as they had been when they went to sleep, but they fail to recognize the cause.

2.      Fitness gadgets

The next thing you need to understand is the fact that in order to keep your mind sharp, you can’t afford to allow your body to hold you down. Now, as an entrepreneur, it’s not that uncommon that you spend an entire day on your feet, in which case feeling guilt over not working out might be quite unfounded.

One of the best ways to get ahead of this issue with a gadget is to get an Mi Band 3. Truth be told, this is as much of a health gadget as it is a fitness gadget, seeing as how it measures your heart rate, sleep quality and controls several other aspects of your health. The battery can hold for up to 20 days, which means that this is not something you’ll have to worry about very often. For an entrepreneur, one worry less can be a major boon.

3.      A smart suitcase

Smart suitcases have taken the business travel to another level. First of all, a smart suitcase is break-resistant, which is a huge plus for someone who travels a lot. Second, it comes with a GPS, which, due to the fact that these suitcases often contain vital information, is more than important. Lastly, there’s a slot for a portable power pack to be stored, so that you can use your suitcase as a portable charger. This alone can prevent you from having to make unnecessary stops on your daily itinerary. In other words, this also saves you quite a bit of time.

4.      Smart office thermostat

Finally, you need to understand that someone with a lot of entrepreneurial spirits refuses to leave anything to the case, including the temperature. If there’s such a thing as the optimal work temperature, you can use a smart thermostat to set and keep it there in the most power-saving manner possible. While this may not seem like that big of a deal, it sure does make a difference.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, there’s one thing that’s quite obvious – all of these gadgets save time by making you more efficient in vital activities that you can’t afford to do for too long (or even as long as you should). Of course, we’re not suggesting that a smart mattress can replace hours of sleep or that you can instantly get in shape by using an Mi Band. Still, as we have already stated in the introduction, every little bit helps, and a little here and there goes a long way.

Launching a Successful Venture – Journey of a Sperm to Life!!

Launching is successful venture is very much like a journey of Sperms where only one out of millions gets an opportunity to give the life.  Daily there are several Start-ups which are popping up in the market out of which only few get a chance to taste the success and rest get disappears. Launching a venture is easy but pursuing your passion to pursue it to next level is what defines your success. The moment you lose your passion and focus, you will lose in the race of success

EntrepreneurshipI have been recently bitten by an entrepreneurship bug and have been reading, exploring about how to launch a venture which can help me to pay community back which has given me everything which I could ask for.   My journey has been far more challenging then what I thought and at many times I lost my direction.  Entrepreneurship is a self-evolving journey where every step you take will give you an option to choose from different new steps leading in different direction.

Being associated with an IT industry and companies working on offshore models I have gained many insights about how and what type of business operates in this industry however when it came to put my thought in a structure I understood how difficult it is to make it happen and one can end up spending sleepless nights to put it in structure.

Based on my understanding and knowledge, I have spent a lot of time in analysing about core things which I believe must be answered before I present it to market.  Few of them are listed below:

  1. Services my venture should be offering
  2. Markets we should be targeting
  3. What makes us competitive and stand outside the crowd
  4. Do we have a passion to address client issues
  5. What kind of talent we should be hiring

In the process of answering above points, I took an opportunity to meet and speak many experts who either have supported several executives in launching their ventures or have their own successful ventures in the market. In addition of seasoned experts, I also met newbies who were fairly new, less experienced and trying to launch their new start-ups. Idea of such meeting is to understand the challenges which they have faced/facing and how they are making sure that they stays passionate.

My every meeting and discussion has given me new perspective to my thought process and helped me to filter, define my offerings in a better way.  Few of those discussions were highly motivating, few were mix of positive and negative and few were hopeless but the core of every discussion was to focus on important things which will eventually help an entrepreneur to be become successful and have a successful venture.

If I have to summarize my all discussions and meeting to provide meaningful solution, I believe I can sum that in few points which are well known and shared by lot of experts however not everyone believe them till they themselves get their hands dirty in trying them. They will be:

  1. The problem and pain areas which your venture will be solving
  2. Why your potential customer think that as a problem and pain
  3. What solution/service you will offer to solve that problem
  4. How better your solution/service is from your competitor
  5. Do you have a passion to pursue that

My new venture Globality Consulting does answer above points, but these are not the only guidelines which we got to keep in mind. There is lot in there and as I mentioned above, every step we take to stabilize our own venture, a new thought comes to mind which will look more lucrative but if you are not passionate on what you started and lose focus then you opt for those options and get into a vicious, never ending circle of losing your patience and your dream and then you will end up like other sperms which don’t get chance to give life.
