"Dreams are not what you see when you sleep; dreams are something that never lets you sleep"
These were the golden words said by our former President Mr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam. One can ponder over these lines and derive strong inspiration from it. I am an IT professional. I thrive on the codes and status calls. Our life is full of stress - coding, designing, testing, reviewing and attending status calls. It is bound by deadlines and to meet deadlines sometimes we have to burn the midnight oil. Everyone has dreams but the one who toils hard to make that dreams come true is something that counts. Being a representative of this IT world, I could say that I hate the ambience especially when you are constantly bombarded with work every second.
After doing the day’s work, you don't even have time for yourself. People have failed to give adequate time to their loved ones because of this materialistic world. I have a strong desire to be my own boss. Since childhood I had many dreams and gradually the dreams faded away just like leaves fade away during the autumns. The end result is that I am a Software Engineer. I always wanted to have a business of my own. A small business which would give me happiness. It would be a business where I could experiment, innovate, ideate and implement with creative ideas which would give me a satisfaction of doing something fruitful. This would be something which I would term as my ‘Dream Business’.
Bloggers are creative people who use the right part of the brain. After mulling over certain things, I could say that my profession has given me everything. It gives me the ‘bun and butter’ – read ‘Bun’ not ‘Bread’. After some serious Cogitation, I ask myself – what have I done for my passion? All that I want is to get published. Every blogger has this dream of getting published. I have a dream- a dream of starting my own publishing house. A small venture with sufficient number of employees who would give life to my dream. My whole intent of creating this publishing company is different. This would be exclusively for bloggers. Being a blogger myself, I can realize how difficult it is for someone to get published these days. There are over 5 lakhs bloggers in India. I am pretty sure that each one of them are talented in one or the other way..
MicrosoftOffice 365 provides access to several services and each having unique features that would benefit me and my business. A mid enterprise package would suffice as my dream business would be a start up comprising of like minded people. The publishing house would be having a group of editors, designers and SPOC's who would be the point of contact between the authors and the company. We all know that editing is a tedious task and it requires lots of patience.
