9th march.

Some things have been sorted out but there are things that need to nurture. I pressed gas on that unique service that will drive us faster in near future. Still the bridge to the monetary issue is not solved. This is the very reason for our slow growth.

Moving onto some positive aspects, my co-founder and the digital design expert created the site for the company. Although it is still in the beta version, we will be working to launch the main site as soon as possible.

25th feb.

As if there were fewer problems to tackle, one more has popped out. Our hunt for funds by unorthodox way has ended; the reason being we found that “we would end up in paying more interest than the actual amount taken”. Too risky for a new start up.!! 
I wish that someone could escort us from this situation; so that we could focus on our work. I am not getting persons who shares our view or who syncs with our passion and ideas.

My work as the SEO navigator is increasing with each day and I am finding it tough to balance my personal and professional life. I have college internal lined up in the coming week and I cannot leave my freelancing work either; as it I the only source of income. (Keeping aside the money I get from my parents)

I need to devote more time on web, carefully framing strategies to build link for the platforms that we intent to develop in the next few months.

I am single but I have to handle work that can easily be divided between four persons. In between today happen to be Late Steve P. Jobs birthday.

It was disheartening to see the national papers didn’t publish single news about it. I downloaded few videos related to him, got nostalgic with his memories. I wish he was alive today; I am not at all personally related to him but he served as role model.

22nd Feb.

Things are finally falling in right places, atleast they look like. Going ahead with the investment pitch, we marked two more investment options. Angle investors and a government started funding scheme. Still I believe we have to go in for some of the unconventional ways. 
All traditional funding schemes tend to take more time.

Starting an internet venture is not at all easy; I know starting any venture is not easy but you must have sensed the drift. But sitting infront of the LCD screen for continuous hours, going through all the recent developments adopted or the future methods can blow your mind off. Especially when you are head SEO navigator of your company; you got to keep up with the latest techniques that these search engines adopt to rank the sites. 
Currently I am more focused on the SEO impact of google+ on the organic searches. Trying to resolve its hidden potentials to influence the searches.

We have more presentations, workshops and project work lined up in the next month. As we continue to strengthen our services the college pressure hover over our heads. Unlike the Silicon Valley, here in India being an entrepreneur can give to immense criticism, losing your family support only worsens the situation.

21st feb.

This is the 101st post on my blog, should I celebrate or write a post regarding this? I have seen bloggers celebrating this miles stone or things like this. Whatever the case may be, I don’t feel like celebrating today.

I tried contacting four persons for initial funding for my company but as luck would permit I faced rejection, yet again. 
We are facing a tough time looking for investments. The most frustrating part is that I cannot advance further without that seed capital. 

I would be approaching my college for it too, but I don’t see much support from there. 
There is too much politics involved at every stage. But I have to keep exploring.

Our mentor Madam Rimu, is helping us a lot. She had met few venture capitalists today and has approached them on my behalf, still I have to write a business model on a paper and submit. Then they would judge (based on our start-up) if we should get the require funds or not. 

All these will definitely take time and as an entrepreneur, time is the scarcest resource available to me.  

My partner will look for some more sources on Friday; hopefully we would be getting some positive reply this time around.

My income for February has reached closer to 2k (till today). As a freelancer I am progressing pity well.

I have changed the title of the blog; it is more like a journey of my struggling days. Hopefully I would succeed as an entrepreneur one day.   

Coming back to the 101st post, I would definitely like to thank the person who is behind all these; you were the reason for which I started writing. Just to impress you, as I was not the smartest person in your life then. But by the time I mastered this art you had gone far away.
