Dear community members,
We would like to start this week’s newsletter by inviting you to join us for this year’s Network Capital Adventure Retreat in Chail, Himachal Pradesh.
On Network Capital, we want to help you build your category of one not only in terms of what you bring to the workplace but also the values you live by. In this 3 day retreat, we will enjoy myriad outdoor adventures curated by Laidback, a venture by one of our subscribers Nakul.
We will consider the retreat successful if you go back with cherished friendships, deeper knowledge about your selves and ideas for connecting with others in order to add specific value to them. Your personal and professional growth will be a natural byproduct.
The adventure kickstarts in a quaint, outdoor resort near Chail. See you on 21st April evening.
💌 When ideas have sex - It is hard to come up with a precise definition of originality. It means too many things to too many people. Does being original simply mean doing things differently? If yes, would you consider adding salt to your cappuccino original? Does originality have to do with getting better results? Perhaps, but that would be too restrictive.
💌 ... got into Wharton, ... got fired, ....moving on from a job she loved... - I am happy where I am in life. No complaints. My mission for the better part of of the last decade is to make you all achieve your full potential. Witnessing your successes and being part of your failures is what gives me meaning. That’s why I came up with the outcome-driven mentorship program. You sign on with a particular goal in mind and we work together till we make it happen.
💌 Kaushik finding his career product market fit as Partner at EQT Ventures, Sanya joins as Partner at Bain Capital, Ramesh having a unicorn exit, Jed building angel investing school - We love celebrating the successes and learning from failures. The biggest delight is witnessing the journeys that make it all happen.
💌 Knowing WHY makes hard decisions easy - Today there is gluttony of choice which makes decision making complicated. We don’t always have the luxury of perfect information so we need to act based on what we know. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos says suggests taking most decisions with 70% of the information you wish you had. Waiting for 90% of 100% might cause precious delay.
