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.

New Sales Initiative for CCS


Last couple of weeks has been aggressive in creating a Strategy for improving the Sales for CCS. So what are we doing for last couple of days? 

  • Revamping Cogzidel.In Layout & a Slight change in Design
  • Rewriting content for Cogzidel.In
  • Moving from our own framework to Joomla
  • Aggressively addling links in Directories
  • Aggressively posting press release about CCS.
  • Aggressively increasing networks in Linkedin, Twitter, PeerPower & Facebook 

All the above things are online initiatives. These are some offline initiatives; 

  • Distributing Broachers to companies is Complex’s.
  • Visiting companies directly after getting lead / link from friends.
  • Planning to buy corporate gifts and planning to meet new prospective clients, client who have given good business & client who have not turned after enquiry.
  • Planning to take telephone yellow pages and call all the companies and ask them if they have any need. 

We do all these with the help of two folks Senthil Kumar & Suresh who are in our incubation labs. They spare a quality time for CCS Sales other than working on their new startup. 

Now it is my responsibility to think more innovatively and document things that click so that it can be passed to my successor.
