Entrepreneurship & Fatherhood

October 21, 2011

I was recently blessed with a baby girl (to be precise on Sep 30th) and it was one of my most joyous occasions. Life all of a sudden had become very hectic – balancing the addition of a new member to the family at the same time devoting time that is needed for my venture. While tonight (Fri Oct 21st, 1 AM) I was trying to get Anika to sleep and I have been trying to adopt various strategies – letting her cry, trying to swaddle her, holding her close to me, walking with her etc. While doing this it suddenly hit me (that is the inspiration for this post as well) that a startup and a new born are one and the same – with the new born one has to adapt (life style – no more late night parties, no loud music, everything is baby proofed etc) and adopt new strategies to raise them. There is no right or wrong approach here – one has to do everything and anything to succeed and get a good night sleep. So is the case with startups – one has to constantly keep trying new strategies – from selling to customer support to customer acquisition and see what sticks and keep repeating that approach successfully.

Time only will tell what is the best approach and hopefully with that and some key learnings I would not be second guessing myself a lot many times.
