Today I’m going back to pick another story from 2014 in Seven Boats Info-System Pvt. Ltd. That time we were in our old office in Salt Lake. We got a good service lead from Dubai, which was owned by an NRI from Kolkata. There was no Google meet and Zoom didn’t arrive then. After a few email exchanges and a couple of Skype rounds our conversations took a positive turn. The owner of the business eventually had shown interest in even investing in 7boats. In excitement we worked late hours in the office to prepare presentations and proposals to please him. Things progressed so well that the gentleman landed in Kolkata for the final round of discussion. And yes, he brought loads of Swiss chocolates from there for our whole team. On a rainy morning in July our full team, all decked up in best attires, was present before he arrived with his team. All went well and we cracked our biggest project of that year. For a few years we handled their many projects but that investment part didn’t happen for some other intent of that person which we gradually realized. Anyway, I picked this up from my experiences to tell that, always give your best shot in everything you do but learn to accept the outcome gracefully. Do not let your success uproot you or the failure bury you where you stand. Stay focused.
In my past 8 years journey with 7boats I not only learnt many interesting things about digital marketing, I experienced a lot of exciting and dull moments as well. It’s time now to share some stories.
That was probably one of our first outings as guest lecturers in Sep, 2014. We went to take a short session on digital marketing for the students of Gargi Memorial Institute of Technology, Baruipur. The felicitation we received on that day after the session was overwhelming. Although we took that session for free but there was that untold joy of getting recognized in a broader horizon. With a few fags of excitement I and Debajyoti Banerjee quickly jotted down few plans of doing something great in coming days. That indeed motivated us. My learning on that day was, stop blocking yourself to build your success story.
Keep yourself motivated and work hard, success will follow you.
