• What Songs Taught Us #6 – Wake Me Up •

Song In Focus : Wake Me Up
Artist : Avicii

The song, Wake Me Up, an Avicii classic is a beautiful rendition of a young, inexperienced soul wanting to live a happy life, wanting to just start, wanting to experience the journey, not caring about how the journey will end.

The young soul was living his dreams, not knowing he was lost, as told by the people around him, who persisted to take the safe path, to do safe things and not wander around.

People around him say that he is inexperienced, that there is a difference between life and dreams, that life will pass him by, filled with regrets of not settling down.

And the young, inexperienced soul wanting to live his dreams is fine by it, he is ready to take the chance, because in the end, he’s happy with the decisions he’s taking, and he wants to experience the life as is.

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight (Review)

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight (Review)

Phil Knight is not just one of the best entrepreneurs out there, but a brilliant storyteller too.

He takes you on a journey, his journey, full of ups and downs, into making what Nike is today.

His storytelling is so apt and vivid, that you feel you’re on this journey with him. You’re able to imagine when he paints the picture, you want to know what his next step is going to be, how is he going to solve the next problem. You’re just holding onto the book and want to read page after page.

Every great journey starts with a Crazy Idea, and Phil Knight shares everything, right from the inception to the making to its problems and it’s growth. Nike is a brand everyone is fascinated with, everyone wants to own a piece of it, however, very few people know the story behind it and how interesting it is.

This is a business book which every current and future entrepreneur should read, it paints you the real picture of entrepreneurship, what it takes to build a business, how persistent you need to be, how calm you need to be during the gravest of problems, and how important a team around you is.

Everyone sees a brand what they are today, everyone sees what Nike is today, but we hardly realize the years it took to be what it is, the hardships the company faced, the innovations it did, some successful and some not, the learnings you get from that – this is a picture of real entrepreneurship.

Phil Knight, you’re a genius.

Masslooking – Things to avoid on Social Media #1

Masslooking – Things to avoid on Social Media #1

• Things to avoid on Social Media #1 – Masslooking •

Have you recently noticed views on your Instagram Stories from people who are not following you?

These views are also not a result of your hashtags or location tags on your stories!

These views are actually a result of ‘Masslooking’ – a new service in the market, supposedly a new growth hacking technique which views thousands of stories per day according to their algorithm!

Eventually, anyone checking their story views will find these unknown people viewing their stories, check out their profile and if you’re one of those people, voila, they get a follow.

Clearly, not a good technique to get noticed by random people and clearly one of the things to avoid whilst growing on social media!

5 Major Things that negatively affect our Mindset

5 Major Things that negatively affect our Mindset

To achieve your goals – the macro goal – the skills, the talent and the execution come second.

Mindset is the most necessary element in the process – you accomplish that, and you’re on track to win the game.

However, there are 5 major things that negatively affect our mindset –

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
//If you let other people’s opinions affect you, judge everyone around you – all day long, do your activities as and when they come – not setting a routine to complete them, play the short-term game and wanting the results immediately – then how will you set yourself apart from others. How will you focus on the big picture?

Mindset – that’s the answer.

Zazz Media’s Mission

Zazz Media’s Mission

Unless people don’t love the brands already, they usually don’t follow them on social media.

Even then, they’re under a constant hammering of promotional announcements and the brands’ sales funnels.

So, what is our mission?

We want to change the way people perceive brands on social media, and everywhere else too, on a macro basis.

At the same time, we also want to create valuable content for the brands, which ultimately brings that change for the consumers.

That’s the change Zazz Media is trying to bring. #OurMission

Be a rainbow in someone’s cloud!

Be a rainbow in someone’s cloud!

Either through an act of kindness, a gesture or a few kind words, or be a shoulder to someone…

Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud!

Try it!

It’ll make your day and how – start with one person and then two and it eventually becomes a habit and makes you a different person altogether!

Earn the Right to Promote

Earn the Right to Promote

“Provide good content and you’ll earn the right to promote your product.” – Guy Kawasaki


Sure, a brand can promote their products directly and even get good sales, but how long would that last and how much would you end up spending?

More importantly, how many people are going to remember the brand in the long-term?

When you build your Brand, when you provide good, valuable content to your audience, you connect with them, you build a relationship with them.

The consumer feels this connection, feels an affiliation to the brand and now wants to buy from them.

Now, in the future, when you promote your new collections to this same consumer, they will accept it and even buy with open arms, because you earned your right to promote your products.
