Real Life Leadership Situations..The success of getting ahead is getting started!!

Two weeks back I got a call from Sujoy and he was keen on meeting me.Its more than 2 years that we kept ourselves hooked on to occasional bickering about the same old recession and corporate gossips.However this time I could sense "spring" in his voice.
When I met him I was floored by the heights he has scaled as an Equity Investor in a Retail venture.I was zapped by the way he has moved ahead in his ambition to become the Managing Director of Grubs Quick Service restaurant chain along with 2 of his friends.Yes Sujoy you have done a pretty neat job which required lot of motivation to pull that "nail" of being a corporate servant from your life.

"Grubs" caters to both young and old generations with its menu and I suddenly found myself becoming a "foodie".The food tasted excellent and is comparable to any "upmarket" brands available in the market.Though the journey by Sujoy was not on beaten paths and I am sure he is on his way to reach the pinnacle of success.Today he exudes lot of confidence in the fence sitters who has "job" in mind and "business" in their heart to come our of their comfort zone.

While Sujoy peppered our talks with intermittent calls from interested investors in his venture ,it also showed that owning a business brings lot of responsibility in you,as you "father" a brand as well the futures of quite a few people associated with you.

All the best Sujoy on your maiden venture and you have inspired many like me!!
