Quitting your job vs starting your own company.

  1. 1. Quitting your job v/s Starting your own company
  2. 2. • Ever wanted to think beyond the dull grey cubicle you sit around all day pounding on your computer, busting your ass off to meet deadlines, fretting about the kind of life you lead having killed all your interests. • All for the big fat pay check you receive promptly on the first day of every month. • Well, if its money that drives you, propels your life forward, you’re doing it right, mate.
  3. 3. • But, if you’re the other type, the one who measures the quality of life not just by the material comforts but pays heed to the inner voice, gives personal interests their due and still knows what job satisfaction means. • These slides don’t endorse ditching your job but tell you how pursuing your interests could help you in the long run.
  4. 4. • The Startup boom that started in the Silicon Valley sometime in the 80s has got the Indians thinking as well, ‘Why can’t I start my own company?’ • The number of Entrepreneurs is quite on the rise with a number of funding groups that offer flexible pay back options coming to the fore. • Now, for the Million Dollar question: ‘Is ditching my job worth the risk I’d be taking?’
  5. 5. • The answer to this question depends solely on the amount of self-motivation you have. On how passionate you are about becoming an Entrepreneur. • Not on the kind of job you’re holding. Not on the number of bucks you make. • But you’ll to have to weigh your odds cleverly before you make the big leap and start your own company.
  6. 6. • For one, you wouldn’t be making the same amount of money that you were earlier. Statistics say that it usually takes 3 to 4 years for your startup to give substantial returns on your investment. • Two, there is the stereotype Indian society trying to pull you down and turn skeptic towards your decision. It’s encouraging if you have broad minded parents who are willing to help you. But the Indian society is never going to change. Screw them. If you find your inner self telling you you’re doing it right, then go ahead.
  7. 7. • Three, your office hours are not going to be fixed and Weekends could turn out to be the same as Weekdays, but since you’re doing something you love, every day’s a holiday for you. • Four, girls might not go crazy over you. You don’t earn big bucks. You’re not a part of a big corporate. But, once again, you’re in a relationship with something you love. No big deal, then.
  8. 8. • Five, your value might go down in the marriage market. It’s Indian society you’re dealing with, right. Don’t worry, once your company turns into a Google, you’ll show them what you’re worth. Lastly, if you have an entrepreneurial spirit in you, sooner or later, you’d end up being one. Might as well do it now when you are in your prime than when you grow older turning into a skeptic doubting every other move you take in your life.
