About Jasmeet Singh
get to know me better
I have done some stupid things over my college days and job days but leaving my job where “Sky was the limit: quoting one of my geek colleague” was definitely not one of them.
I have been a part of multiple startups
What do I do for a living?
I am at present handling IT Services division of our company. The same IT Services which funded the weddings and dreams of millions like me. I also mentor few startups/small businesses in different capacities and I teach Digital Marketing, helping students decide how a career in Digital marketing can help them.
I also take workshops on Entrepreneurship.

About Lessons At Startup:
Lessons at startup is a blog to share my real life experiences of starting, running, dragging, sleeping, sleepwalking, failing, succeeding startups and small businesses.
Starting a startup is ever easy. It’s 24 X 7 job where you learn on the job. Most of the learnings are screw-ups you do. by making mistakes. You are expected to know HR, Marketing, sales, etc, etc.
You are expected to know HR, Marketing, Sales, etc, etc.
You must be wondering; why do we need to know everything when there are resources to hire for every domain in the market? Well. Until and unless, you have a VC with deep pockets or a rich dad willing to splurge on his kid’s adventures, I highly recommend you learn to don all hats of running a business.
From wiping office floors (I have done this when our sweeper did not turn up for 5 good days) to running HR department of my company (toughest department to handle), you have to do it all.
I cannot tell you how many times I have failed by not learning to get out of my shell. There was a time, I literally went broke because of bad financial management. Not that I am a millionaire now 🙂
Other than the “free” advice on startups, I will share what I learn every day via the omnipresent internet guru “Google”.
I meet so many lost souls in companies struggling in their day to day jobs. They remind me of monster’s ad where a batsman is shown washing clothes, a dancer is guiding a plane to taxi.
Most of them want to quit.
In fact, the first response when I tell them I run a software company is “You are still the boss”.
I wish I could tell them “Entrepreneurship is not easy. You have no idea, the number of days I have spent without a penny in my pocket”.
Irrespective of all challenges, remember Entrepreneurship is fun. The challenges here are nothing in comparison to what you face in your day to day jobs. I hope you find this blog as a helpful resource for building your Startup.
