The power of LinkedIn connection!
The entrepreneur sat forlornly flipping through the pages of his past self employed journey journal.
The day was ending that week's working days on the month of the November of the year 2017.
The entrepreneur's mind fast-forwarded the memories to tune back to the earlier days of the internship which built the foundation for his entrepreneurial structures.
He fondly remembered the first day and his first step into the workspace on a clear Monday morning of April in the year 1982.
The tiny workspace of 360sq.ft was well expanded to a huge work area of 10000sq.ft spread across six different cities within the next decade.
A crucial technology up-gradation in the production machinery line with a large capital exposure failed to perform and that cost the decade's efforts.
The entrepreneur had managed to exit from the failure shell which had confined him for a year + within the four walls of depression.
Though the future self-employed path had many ups and downs with a few X roads in-between, the entrepreneur managed to survive.
Any journey must come to an end at some stage and so was this entrepreneurs self-employment too, it came to an end in November in the year 2017.
The entrepreneur sighed, collected himself and went out for a stroll. The survival spirit in him kept the hopes for a brighter future and hence his mind began to ponder the future options.
He chose a corner bench at the community park, took out his mobile phone and casually began to browse.
He chanced upon the preloaded application known as the Notes which he had used as the storage space for a few details that were fed in an alphanumerical format.
He clicked the plus option typed a headline on the new page and slowly began to type in the words that were forming in his thoughts.
Suddenly he glanced at the wristwatch and was amazed to note that he had spent close to an hour typing the flowing words into the mobile phone Note section.
He got up and went back home, took a shower, sat on the balcony and opened the notes on the mobile phone.
The contents that he had typed starred back at him to reveal a narration on his entrepreneurial journey.
He missed rereading the contents and opted to share the contents as a post on a professional online platform without correcting the spelling and grammatical errors.
The first post gained so much support from the readers that the appreciation and the encouraging comments from the community members inspired him to write further.
Well, that's how this writer was born who kept pursuing his writing skills irrespective of the monetary benefits.
Year's flew by but his writings never ceased to stop and his thoughts kept exploring various topics of which the few selective subjects motivated him to express more on topics.
