Every here for the past couple of years, since I discovered Social Media, I have either written about it, tried to use it constructively and quite successfully, If I may say so myself.
In my quest of Learning, read more here I decided to make use of social media or the digital medium as I prefer to refer it. I tweeted a couple of days back “Want to meet people in ‘Bombay’ who have left their jobs recently, started on their own or vice versa……will pay for coffee”.
The objective here was two fold:
One: I want to understand what makes the 21-35 generation tick. What makes them want to risk everything or sometimes nothing? What are their plans & how long can they sustain to deliver/implement their dreams etc…..you get the point.
Two: I want to share my mistakes with them, so that it ‘may’ help them focus. Where there is an interest, would like to advise, mentor them to accelerate their business, failing which their thoughts at least.
However, I have a rule that the connect has to be via the digital space only – email, FB, Twitter, Quora etc.
Disclaimer: I am not/neither an Angel Fund; VC etc. Just an ‘Aam’ aadmi.
