Entrepreneur’s Dilemma

Just happened to see below tweet from Randi Zuckerberg & a post from WordPress Daily Post has kindled my thought process as an Entrepreneur.

To give you a small backdrop about me aka publicity 😉

CTO is my profession & Entrepreneurship is my passion…

Fortunately, thanks to my CEO & childhood friend Anand Nataraj, I am onto my second stint of entrepreneurship & added to the beauty, I am paid for it!! So per Anand’s word, I am an Interpreneur!!

Now back to the main story line! Like every Enterpreneur or Interpreneur, one of my perennial issue is to figure out a right Work/Life balance. To be frank, this was actually a problem even when I was an Employee 🙂

I initially try to see if I can find a way to achieve all parameters listed out by Randi. But since Randi clearly asked us to pick only 3, here are my three

P.S – Please note that expressions in the bracket are my mind voice 😀

  1. Building a Great Company & that company is Cogzidel! (Else I will be murdered by Anand :p)
  2. Spending time with family. (Violating this will lead me to get murdered by wife Chitra who will for sure team up with our lovely daughters Kamali & Rini to see this mission accomplished)
  3. Staying Fit. (Violating this will invite death sentence from both my work & life partners :p)

For Entrepreneurs, sleep is a luxury so it was not a hard choice for me to let it go. But giving up friendship was quite difficult but as the saying goes, you have to give some to earn some.

So that’s my choice, what your pick of 3?!

Hackathon for Cogzidel Blog Cleanup

Wordpress Blogathon

Situation

Wordpress Blogathon
Hackathon for Cogzidel Blogathon

Cogzidel Blog for long has been deserted & by time it has accumulated loads of garbage with poor content, no category listing, no tags etc…

Twice a team was formed to clean things and set things right… Unfortunately both times folks couldn’t complete the task..

Being a Social Media freak & a Blogger I couldn’t take it anymore… Finally I decided to take the challenge to do it myself…

Solution

I decided to do a HACKATHON and code named it as Cogzidel Blogathon

As a first step I set my Goals;

  • First to Trash all unrelated content…
  • Add appropriate Categories and place blogs under right category…
  • Add appropriate tags…
  • Add a Nice Theme…
  • Customize the Blog…

Then for execution I split the task into 4 Phases of Hackathon… First three phase were SOLO Hackathons and the last one is a Team Hackathon

Phase I: Deleted all unnecessary / irrilavent Blogs…
Phase II: EDITING Content, adding Categories & Tags to existing Blogs…
Phase III: Integrating & Customization of Theme…
Phase IV: The last phase involves a Team of Designer, System Admin, Project Manager & CTO to complete the final set to GAPS…

First three phases took me 2 hours each & planning to do the final Team Hackathon this Monday…

Environment & Gadgets

  • My Vacation house in Bangalore
  • HP Laptop & a Reliance Data card
  • iPhone 4 with 3G

Final Outcome

  • Trashed 360 irrilavent blogs
  • Added categories & tags to 160 blogs
  • Edited content to 40 blogs

Personally the experience was thrilling as it is a Solo Hackathon and feeling happy with accomplishment…
