This is Ellen Degeneres’s commencement speech for Tulane University graduating class of 2009. I think this is a great example of someone who started out with nothing, didn’t know what they wanted to do, and eventually turned their passion and their dream into a reality. In my opinion Ellen Degeneres became who she is today by coming up with an idea and running with it, straying away from the norm, and staying true to her values and her character. I know it’s a little lengthy but please take the time to watch this, I think it’s worthwhile and of course, funny.

First, you find what you love to do. Then be good at it. No doubt. Everyone has motivation, it’s hard to find it. In the end, it’s for the pursuit of happiness.

RICHARD BRANSON: Be a leader — not a boss

A leader is very different from a boss. Many CEOs are bosses, not leaders, directing their employees from well behind the front lines. But sitting in the boardroom listening to even the most comprehensive reports from the front can never compare with your being there and seeing, hearing and understanding those interactions with your customers for yourself.

If you aren’t frequently out there leading the charge with your employees, you simply cannot stay in touch with the realities of your business.

    Actively seeking to listen to the Voice of the Customer is quite important as buisness is all about creating a market and satisfying customers continuously.

    without customers we're nothing….that's the bottom line.

Post University is the best place to earn a MBA. I still think Post University is on the right track with courses offered for the MBA. Although I do not have any connection with the University any longer other than Postings like this – and being a MBA alumnus. For me, I am a very big proponent for more courses in Leadership and course work in business Ethics. You can learn how to make all the money in the world and still be a bad leader and on top of that have no ethics to go by. A leader with no ethics has to be a very bad scenario to have for a top leader in an organization. Businesses and business owners should demand more MBAs have such graduate level course work. Although I still see no movement as such because we continue to see more fallout from companies that have poor leadership at the top and no ethics as a guiding light. So, back to my first statement – it is evident that the Post University MBA program is on the right track because the program is growing. And more future students are finding out about the great MBA program there.

Do you know Massimo Marchiori? If the answer is no well, he invented Hyper Search, that has been the first published technique to introduce link analysis for search engines, opening the way for the second-generation of search engines (notably, Google above all). Google PageRank is based in this his algorithm.

Whole Foods CEO talks about how he learned to be extroverted because that’s what the business needed him to be. Growing the business turned out to have the added benefit of allowing him to grow as a person.

    A few challenges in India:

    1) Despite having a well regulated banking and finance sector, getting funded by the traditional banking industry for a really new idea is difficult. The orientation is towards collateral security as a means of securing the risk of investment which reduces teh opportunity for new ideas to flourish.

    2) Regulatory environment. In the context of the global financial crisis since 2008, one has come to value the value of regulators. However the feudal attitude and harassment by the at the grass roots level which is at the core of public corruption is a real put off.

    3) Society: While the safety net of family ensures entrepreneurial failures can be absorbed and one can still leave decently, the social standing gets badly injured. Risks and failures are not understood and it is sympathy and condescension that prevails.
