Believe in your idea because ….

“Believe in your idea, believe in your dream because if you will not believe in it no one else will. It is you and only you who can make it happen”


A few weeks back,our venture Planned Departure was selected by Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship for the founders award. The above quote was my tip to budding entrepreneurs. The first time when I talked about my idea and product in front of a group of people, some of them found it interesting ,others discarded it and the rest found it morbid. But we believed in it and worked relentlessly to address some of issues , concerns and created our product video and relaunched our website with new design.

Fast forwarding a few months, we were covered in the Deccan chronicle , interviewed in National Public Radio, Cincinnati(US) branch and then finally selected by London Business School Incubator program. We are awarded the founder’s award by Deloitte. This is possible only because of our belief in the idea. No doubt we have a fare share of failures and challenges but we need to overcome them.We have worked hard to bring Planned Departure to a stage where it is now and it our belief that is going to take it to a stage we envision. This will be a long and hard journey but every moment, every learning will be worth it.

I would like to mention another inspiring quote from the founder of Flatclub and LBS alumni “This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time”.

I will end this article by extending this quote to state that

Your life if ending every minute, it is you who decides what to do with this passing minute. I choose to believe in my idea and follow my dreams. What do you choose?

Wishing everyone a very happy new year!!

Living and working in this digital era, our social media accounts – from Facebook, Twitter, Flickr to the likes of Pinterest – are increasing not only in number but also in volume. Additionally, many of us have domain names registered and libraries of movies, digital music and e-Books that can be of significant value. And let's not forget about Bitcoin and other virtual currencies! For the majority of us, these accounts and digital assets are likely to outlive us. And when we die, it is left up to family members and estate executors to sift through them all. Furthermore, even though they may have all the required passwords necessary for these accounts, many heirs will discover that they have no clear authority to access, or even to manage, the online accounts of their deceased loved ones. With the value of individuals' digital assets globally measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars, planning for the protection of our digital assets has moved to centre stage. It is essential that our online and social media accounts are included as part of the estate planning process. Failure to do so may not only deprive those we leave behind of fond memories and (possibly) a little nest egg, it could also leave us vulnerable to postmortem identity theft if fraudsters get to use our personal details to apply for credit facilities whilst our accounts remain unguarded. Planned Departure resolves these issues. We provide you with the ability not only to protect your digital assets, but also to clearly indicate who can access your online accounts and who should benefit from them. Create piece of mind today by registering with us in one quick and easy process.
