When I was younger and my head was full of foolish ideas and lot of black hair….there was also a huge urge to start some new businesses. Thank God, I did not!
In the 1990s – Income tax practice was still on the top of my head. I seriously thought I should set up a fantastic library of tax books, magazines, and reference material. There was a client with a 6000 sq. ft. office in Marine Lines (and wondering what to do!). A little push from my side, and it would have been started….and now rotting because of the advent of the web and the fact that tax practice is not so much of an appeal practice! Those who understand what I mean – chuckle, chuckle!
Again in the 1990s another person I know wanted to set up a computers agency which would install a PC in every hotel room and charge on a pay as you use basis! This was supposed to give net access (considered very expensive) – so that the business traveller could use the net, the comp and use a common printer. Thank God we did not set it up! We did not know net would soon be free (well almost), laptops would be so cheap, and hardware prices would crash so fast…we would have been wiped out.
Two job offers which were made to me were at top salaries. One was with a software-hardware company and one with a tile company. I just did not take it forward because their balance sheets which I knew and which was shown to me were so far away from each other that I could not imagine. Both companies chased me a little and then gave up. In one case the ‘consultant’ was very angry with me for refusing to accept the offer (it was still at the verbal stage)…In both cases I could have ended up in the courts for sec 138 cases, if not in the jail. Thank God for giving me the sanity to choose ‘unemployment’ over ‘jail’.
Of course I have made investing mistakes…but God saved me from major big time disasters…yes time got wasted, but there was no tension of wrong doings taking me to gaol! and far away from my goal!!
