Welcome to the ultimate E-Biz Blog !

Hi! E-Biz Cafe is a new blog dedicated to a passion I am sure I share with many guys out there like me. Let me explain.

If you could eavesdrop on a typical conversation between a group of mid-thirty guys over drinks on any fine evening, the topic of conversation inevitably boils down to two topics:

1) Astronomical property rates in urban India over the last two years
 

2) The entrepreneurial bug that bites most guys in their thirties (or even earlier)

Nursing a fine single malt (single malts should be a separate topic for a blog, but that’s another story), you’ll hear of a thirty-something year old manager in a MNC or private Indian company lament over the long working hours, draconian bosses, screwed up work life balance, and the feeling of being in a professional rut. Not a day goes by when he doesn’t wish he could start something of his own.

“Start something of my own” is a phrase I have heard a zillion times in the last few years from buddies, colleagues,and acquaintances leading me to believe that under the veneer of the spit and polish of corporate life, many of us are living lives of quiet desperation. Astronomical salaries, and corporate trappings make wonderful golden cages for the soul which yearns for more meaningful work and the chance to follow one’s passion and turn that into a lucrative business.

Then reality sets in like a splash of cold mountain water on your face and one realizes that one has financial commitments, loans,dependents at home, and expectations to live upto. You put your dreams back into that little box in the farthest recesses of your mind and get back to the hurly burly of life; only to have them resurface when time and circumstance (a laid back evening with a Laprohaig) prompt them to do so. No more.

Through this blog, I invite like minded folks to collect in cyberspace and share their hopes and experiences with a like-minded audience, that will support each other to ‘go for it’ and take the leap to ‘breakfree’.

Do come back in a few days and I will have a little surprise for you …Till then don’t forget to leave a comment and contribute to some lively e-biz chat!
