Podcast Interview with CK Kumaravel, CEO of Naturals Salon. How He Built India’s Largest Chain of Beauty Salons.
Imagine if, a decade ago, you started your first company. After showing initial signs of success, it suddenly tanks, dragging your property and savings with it. It leaves you with a staggering debt of ₹5 crore. What do you do next?
Well, if you were CK Kumaravel, you get up, dust yourself off, train your subconscious mind to think positively and create one of the largest chains of beauty salons in India! In this podcast, the CEO and co-founder of Naturals Salon talks about the failure, about how, despite studying in a Tamil-medium school, he made it a point to learn English because his father had once said “Business success and English are related”. He also shares other important business lessons. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur or a businessman, then you will benefit immensely from this podcast.
For some of my New Year resolutions, I’m taking help from technology. Here’s that story in today’s Deccan Chronicle newspaper.
Thanks to this phone recording app, recording podcast interviews and taking brief from clients has become so much easier. Here’s my review in today’s Deccan Chronicle newspaper.
My Tech Column this fortnight in Deccan Chronicle focuses on my review of a very good productivity app. I reviewed multiple To-Do apps and finally homed in on the ‘Any.Do’ app which I totally fell in love with. In the last week, I have seen a marked improvement in how I get things done. Highly recommended.
I wrote this fortnight’s tech column with a tinge of guilt. The last audio podcast I did was 6 years ago coz I started to focus more on video. Am beginning to realize that audio podcasting is not only cheaper and easier to produce, it is consumed better than video. My audio podcasts are here at http://Kiruba.fm/ and video podcasts are here at http://Kiruba.TV/. Time to refocus on audio podcasting.
