“A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what a ship is for.”
You shall get out of your comfort zone to grow by using your skills to the best of your abilities if you wish to achieve your aspiration and potential.
Example: An entrepreneur shall be bound to take risk and should believe in his/her strength and skill set. At the end of the day, you are born to make a difference in life that requires a quantum of effort and skills to move forward.
Hai, are you an Entrepreneur, Proprietor of a Micro, Small and Mid-Size Business venture or a Freelancer?
If Yes, Read On, This small information share can be of some help or support.
Let me welcome you for the Start-Up journey a way forward. In this Write-Up, I am planning to explain a few key points that shall keep you fast toed in the Digital Arena for making your presence felt.
The Idea is to get self-prepared as a businessperson with the help of a few checklist for Business Directory posting. This will help in Create Visibility along with your efforts in Making Impressions, and Generating Leads over various Virtual Markets.
I am suggesting you shall keep the BAST-PACT ready for making your impressions count. BAST-PACT is a simple touch-point that is required to maintain handy information for every Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME), Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME), and Individual entrepreneur.
BAST-PACT is accumulation of Information and Data in the form of Digital or Non-Digital Format consisting of:
Identity & Recall
Organisation Name, Company Name, Brand Name, Sub Brands, Subsidiaries, Co-Brands, etc.
Visit and Reach for any Vendor, Customer, Service or Product Demo
Distributor, Reseller, Office, Manufacturing units, Centres, POS, Branches, etc.
Profit and Market share alone does not qualify and quantify them for the standard that they possess from an eminent institute that they belong to, we may see many of such Entrepreneurs who have come up as business giants with Simple education or nearly insignificant qualification largely.
Do this alone justify the means? (You may have your perspective on this.)
To become an entrepreneur you need not be a graduate from a top institute. If you think so, I may also request you to think of graduate scholars from prime institute each year vis-a-vis Entrepreneur they become who are efficient in Growth journey, Sustainability, and their contribution to the society.
Let us see a few things that make that makes an entrepreneurial journey complete.

Problem Identification: Once you have done with your brainstorming, chart-down out fine problem that can lead to a specific Process design that helps you in Fund generation, Market Viability (for the Product or Service), Sustainability, Executable Action Plan and Scalability in the future.
Be S.M.A.R.T: Make your business idea a SOLUTION (Product or Service) that can a MEANINGFUL contribution to the user that is ADVANTAGEOUS and can help the user with RE-ACTIONABLE support that bring in utility for long sustainable TIMELESS duration of scalability.
