Pleasures of being an Entrepreneur !

Micro-Entreprenuer

“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”

Venky Venkatesh : so how long were those initial “few” years srini?

Ans :

I read a very interesting story a few years ago about a Japaneese Bamboo Shoot. And I realized that its life journey is very akin to that of an entrepreneur.

The Japaneese Bamboo shoot grows three inches in the first three years, when you give everything you have in terms of nurturing. If you continue to nurture the same way, the next three years will see the Shoot rising to 30 ft into the sky.

So, it takes at least six years of sweat and blood, and continuous nurturing to get the most wonderful journey head into the next phase. Yes, once you get on to this journey, it is a never ending journey. You, as an entrepreneur, would keep creating many more new bamboo shoots, as the first six challenging years are the most exciting and you would never want move out of such a phase….and you would easily find many who are more eager to take care of the next phase….
