Knowledgeable Sunday

Again Rooban made my day by introducing me to his BDE friend… We scheduled a meeting at noon in a Bar near Thambaram… The guy was marvelous with his knowledge and he gave me great insights about the subject and shared a great part of his experience which others resist to share.

Out meeting lasted for five hours and overall I got lot of cues from him… Not i’ve got some tips to start and from tomorrow it is upto me to strategies and execute all that we discussed…

Once again Thanks a million Rooban Bro


Finally BNI has landed in Chennai

Last year same time me & Bala went to Bangalore to attend 2 BNI meetings and we were really startled to see the way networking and business happened there… We were very much worried that Chennai didn’t have one and we thought of taking rights for Chennai. Unfortunately costs were too high for us to offer.

A month my old time college mate, now a client & friend Mr.Raghavan has taken rights for Chennai and he has successfully conducted 3 meetings at Hotel Courtyard Marriott. I must say that Raghavan has brought to Chennai some pride and we must thank him. We all must see to it that he makes this initiative a grand success…

So, for those who are all new to BNI. Here is a small FAQ;

What is BNI?

BNI is a place / platform where we convert our contacts into contracts!

Already 9 people have enrolled for many categories and hurry to enroll your category. 

For more details shoot an email to Mr.Raghavan

Recollecting 2009 resolutions

We are approaching the end of 2009 and this last day i want to recollect all the resolutions i had for 2009 and how successful am i in full filling those resolutions. Let me list the resolutions;

Resolution 1: Lead a simple life.

As per this resolution i wanted to lead a simple life where in i didn’t to board Auto-rickshaws, Flights, Taxi’s. So i travel through cheapest traveling option. To my satisfaction I can say I full filled this resolution as an individual. I think my CFO Mr.Bala Murugan is the best person to endorse this :).

Then not to purchase Gadgets, expensive dresses etc. Again you can endorse my success in this by seeing my Mobile phone which i was forced to buy because my old one was dead. Yes i got a mobile for Rs.1800/- only.

Resolution 2: To Blog Regularly.

Again you readers can endorse me by seeing my Blog Logs. I’m happy to full fill this resolution too.

Resolution 3: To have more Vagabond trips.

Starting this year i had lot of Vagabond trips to places like KanniyaKumaru, Munnar, Coimbatore, Kodaikanal, Thirunelveli & Theni. Then after May i wanted to take a break for 3 months because of summer. Sadly this year it was a long summer as heat waves lasted till October. So i can say i was 50% successful in full filling this resolution too.

Resolution 4: Workout and have a good physique.

Let me confess i failed miserably in this :(. I worked out promptly till May then after that i went back to dogs.

Resolution 5: Build my Networks.

  • With the help of Mr.Bala Murugan i got hold of lots of friends & acquaintance in business.
  • I went to Madurai without any friends and today i can say i’ve atleast 100+ friends at madurai and thanks to Sathish & Maverick Fitness Center.
  • Then with the help of my friend Roshan & Inshape Fitness Studio i got linked with lots of Celebrities.
  • Lots of friends through Twitter, Linkedin, Peerpower & Facebook.

So i can give a pass mark for this resolution too.

Resolution 6: To get a groove into CCS as it is a new zone for me.

  • After bootstrapping in a shared office, we have moved in to our own office.
  • With clients in all the services (other than franchise) we offer.
  • Breaking-even for last 3 months.
  • Increasing the team count for CCS.

I must say I’m happy with this resolution too.

To conclude this is the first year where in i’ve a pass mark to my resolutions and also this is the first year where in i’ve a list of resolutions too. Now it is time to sit and rework on another set of resolutions and wish i blog the experience of coming years resolution same day same time.

Until then wish to be successful in accommpolishing next year resolutions too.

Wish you all a happy 2010.

Yet another dull day

Yesterday I woke up only to see myself trapped inside my house and I had to stay inside my house the whole for waking up late. Metro water pipe lying was happening and my street was dug and the entire street was not accessible. My mom woke me up asking me to get ready and get out if I had any work. My laziness played the spoil sport.

Then today again I got up late and again my father took the car which was parked in my uncle’s house couple of streets away and my sister took the two-wheeler. Since it rained the entire mud filled patches got wet and it became like quit sand. Most of the cars got struck in the sand. So again I had to stay back and I didn’t want to waste one more day as I didn’t have any online work to work from home.

Also I got a call from my friend who invited me for lunch to introduce his boss who would be of help in my business. I decided to travel though public transport (Pallavan Bus). Then I went to office to check if my old notebook which was back from servicing (it has 600+ viruses) is working fine. To my happiness everything was fine.

Still I was not feeling comfortable. My body vibes were not positive. Then I called bala to hear irritating news and our mud slingers have started with their work of disturbing us from doing our business. Again my folks are not allowing me to act because patience is always taken for weakness.

Then I went to meet my friend’s boss and I was not in a mood to speak business and I made the occasion as a normal networking lunch and I moved back to office. Bala reached in another 15 min of me reaching back to office and he had to take an interview and finish a client meeting.

After everything was done I went and engaged a conversion with bala and I still felt the day was not productive and I wanted to do something useful to sign off the day. So I decided to buy some motivation quotes to place it in our office. Then myself and bala went to Landmark and brought some 17 frames with motivation quoted and I personally got a thirukural book with also has an explanation about what the kural says.

Then again my friends called me for a movie and we all went to Aadhavan. I’m must be crazy or more brave to watch a movie which I didn’t enjoy when I watched it first.

Over all the day was pretty ordinary and I tried to make it little productive but taking some voluntary steps. Let me put all the bad omen back and step forward to have a fascinating Friday.

First thing I’ll be doing tomorrow is to have a hair cut and have a new look and feel to make some cyclonical difference.
