How do you build a successful team? – Google

Every organization’s success is because of its team and its efforts.

Google has been studying the workplace culture of successful companies and came up with the following pointers that make them successful!

There is no Backup to Entrepreneurship

There is no Backup to Entrepreneurship

If entrepreneurship is something that flows within you, then you wouldn’t want to do anything else; there is no backup.

There’s a certain aura of doing it on your own, no matter how small or big, that makes you want to do it even more. The vision, the passion, the energy, the struggles, the journey is so incredible; you just love it.

When you create your company, it becomes your baby, your child; you want to grow it, you want to nurture it and take care of it. The words may seem out of context, but it’s not, it’s the truth.

No matter how many backups you create, if entrepreneurship is within you, you’ll do whatever it takes, start ‘x’ number of companies until you make it, but you shall keep doing so. #Facts

DREAMS!

DREAMS!

There are two kinds of people,

  1. One who keep sleeping so they can dream more and,
  2. one who wake up and follow their dreams.

Every dream is achievable as long as it’s practical and you work towards it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it!

Monday Motivation

“You only live once? False.
You live every day. You only die once.”

If you think about the past, then you’d regret it. If you think about the future, then you’d always be anxious.

Be in the present! Live and enjoy each day to its fullest!

Consistency is Key

Consistency is Key

At every level of business, you need consistency at a certain level, before you move on to the next step.

Consistency is vital when it comes to running a business.

An entrepreneur would imagine a certain level of business growth for his business to run successfully; however, at the same time, one also needs to be consistent with their execution.

You might shoot for the stars, but you must first reach the roof of your building. #ConsistencyIsKey

It’s okay to take a break!

It’s okay to take a break!

Graduated in May 2015. Zazz Media started in December 2015. What happened in those six months?

The entrepreneurial spirit always existed within me. I knew; eventually, I’d build something – although, I didn’t possess the answers for the what, when and how.

Coming from our stressful education system, teaching us all but the same principles, those six tension-free months was a blessing! No responsibilities, no plans, no routine! Nothing valuable happened during that period. Although, in hindsight, I’m happy I took that decision because that brought me to where I am today!

Proceeding down this path gave me the push, the energy to accomplish something. That realisation was important!

It’s up to you, whether you’d like to take a break or not. However, remember this – If you can take a break, do it for yourself. Please don’t rush into decisions, because you got pressured into it. When that happens, you don’t make choices out of happiness.

Who are the Joneses and why you should avoid them?

Who are the Joneses?
“Keeping up with the Joneses is an idiom in many parts of the English-speaking world referring to the comparison to one’s neighbour as a benchmark for social class or the accumulation of material goods. To fail to “Keep up with the Joneses” is perceived as demonstrating socio-economic or cultural inferiority.” #Wikipedia
//
Consciously or sub-consciously, all of us are trying to keep up with the “Joneses”. Now is the time we realise the mistakes we’ve been making! It shouldn’t matter to you what the others are doing if you are satisfied with your everyday life! We fall for worldly possessions because we see someone else accomplish something and now we want the same.

Someone else means your friends, your colleagues, and even those you follow on social media. The current trend is tied in with posting every expensive stuff you buy or do on social media. Now more than ever, it’s about telling others what you are doing rather than for your self-interest!

Ask yourself three questions the next time you do anything,
1. Am I buying this product/service because of self-interest?
2. Is this bringing value to me?
3. Do you care about other’s opinions?

Achieve stuff for yourself and not for others! Think about it and STOP NOW! The only loss is yours and not anyone else’s.

All you need is a little push!

All you need is a little push, towards the right path.

Everyone needs a little push now and then, be it for motivational or mindset or decisive purposes. You have a choice of reading books/ case studies, listening to podcasts, watching self-help videos/ interviews; the options are endless.

Choose the right path for yourself, because a little push can guide you towards the direction you were looking for all along!

Handling your social media on your own?

Handling your social media on your own?

A brand’s social media development is like planting a tree! It’s not a day’s worth of your time and neither is it a month’s worth of your time. For it to give you the results you need, you need to spend months and months and years of proper planning, implementation and execution for it to reach its true level.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is where social media agencies come into the picture! There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work that goes into the management of your pages across the social media platforms. Agencies charge what they charge because of the strategies they create and the planning and efforts behind every online campaign.
.
.
Now the question is, whether you (as the brand owner) have the time or the expertise to maintain your presence digitally whilst you take care of your sales/ customers on an offline basis or whether you should give that responsibility to someone who would take that entire workload off you and do it professionally for your brand! Ultimately, the decision is yours.

P.S. I own a social media agency @zazzmedia – let me know if I can provide any value to you in this sector.

Are you living for the Weekends?

Are you living for the Weekends?

There’s a mindset ingrained in us since childhood, about working Monday to Friday and then enjoying the weekends!

Everyone hates Mondays and calls it the ‘Monday Blues’! Come Wednesday; people start talking about their Friday and Saturday Night plans. Why?
There’s no harm to enjoy the day off but first, live each day to its fullest. Maximise your potential for that particular day, and when the time comes, you cool it off!

Bars and clubs out there have started exploiting this weekend mindset and provide you with mid-week and Friday night offers. Falling into their traps, you spend thousands of hard-earned bucks on just three-four hours worth of satisfaction and luxury, only to do it the next week again. Moreover, what are you achieving out of it?

Think about it from the long-term perspective. Does that activity bring any value addition to your life? People have their own choices, but at the same time, enjoy your other days too instead of wasting them on something you don’t love; only to wait for the weekends and curse Monday yet again.

Do what you love every day, rather than waiting for the Fridays and Saturdays.

Weekends are a boon to us! How about productively executing it to achieve your goals? Work on your personal development, act on those goals we’ve been trying to accomplish, finish your side hustle project! These points only matter when you know your vision!

In the end, it’s your choice! #LiveEachDay

Client’s Way or the Correct Way?

Time and again, every agency or every freelancer has come across a project where the client has taken over their project mid-way and made changes of their own!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This, of course, is in no way wrong! But there are times when that one change could damage the entire campaign or ruin the creative… And at that very moment, you have to take the call – The Client’s Way or the Correct Way?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What we mean by the ‘Correct Way’ is this, guide the client and help them understand the pros and cons of their decision, and at the same time, make them understand why your point is valid too. Because, this is why you were hired in the first place, to do the best work which would help grow their brand.

Inspiring the Millennials and the Gen-Z

Inspiring the Millennials and the Gen-Z

• With 440 million millennials in India (defined as those born after 1982), making up a third of the population and 46 per cent of the country’s workforce, according to a report by Morgan Stanley and,
• India’s Gen Z population (defined as those born after 1996) set to hit 472 million this year,
our vision of Zazzpreneurs is to provide all of you with the knowledge and the tools to pursue your passions and dreams.

We’ve initially started as a podcast, interviewing the do-ers and showcasing their journey, their inspiration and their struggles. We believe that through this, one might get an understanding of the sector they’re interested in and would also know about the opportunities available.

At the same time, this is going to grow much further; however, for that to happen, we need your support!

If you aren’t using social media, you’re not in the game!

People avoid creating websites and significantly more who have yet to establish their brand’s profile on the available social media platforms.

Nowadays, with almost everyone having a smartphone, the tendency of people paying attention to a billboard or a brochure/ pamphlet has gone way down! The way to attract people to your brand/ product/ service is through the digital options out there.

It’s an era of the smartphone! If your brand isn’t digital, then you won’t stay relevant soon.

Every brand needs to stay active on social media, provide content on an everyday basis and connect with their audience as much as possible. On a macro level, this will work out perfectly for your brand. Here’s why?

  • You would have an online fan-following, who will also be your future customers. 
  • They will in-turn share the valuable content with their network, thus reaching out to more people for you. 
  • This would also increase the company’s revenue on a macro level, just by investing a percentage of that revenue on the marketing budget.

Forget the ‘ask’ initially and try focusing on building your audience first. Just focus on providing value!

If you aren’t using social media to your advantage, simply put, you’re losing out. It applies to your personal brand as well as your corporate brand. It is quite surprising to see that some brands are still hesitant to be on social media, even in this day and age.

After a few years, the next big thing would take over, and the era of social media might decline! Who would want to take that risk? Now is the ideal time, to jump in, and make its best use, as much as possible.

Go digital or go irrelevant!

If you thought otherwise, now you know! Open up one of those applications, and start listening to them!

Do you have an idea?

Believe it or not, ideas are easy; what matters is the following,

  • What is your USP?
  • Is the plan sustainable?
  • Are you thinking from the long-term perspective or just turning a quick buck around?
  • What are your intentions?

Knowing these answers will help you reverse-engineer your idea’s potential and whether you should proceed with it.

All you need to do is, mix it with passion and execution, and you’re all set.
