Career Advice No One Tells You — Life Learning

By: Raghav HaranMost people have “okay” jobs.We go to work, do what we have to do from 9 to 5, come back home, maybe hang out with friends, and do it all over again the next day.There’s nothing wrong with this.But some people perform at a totally different level.They’re the people who land executive level positions by their early 30s while everyone else is still trying to “work their way up.”They’re the people who jump out of bed every morning, excited about the day ahead while everyone else drags themselves out of bed every Monday.They’re the people who impact thousands of people through their work, while everyone else keeps themselves busy with pointless tasks at work.Here’s what they understand, that most people don’t.1. Job requirements are negotiableI remember going to the grocery store with my (Indian) grandfather when I was a kid.He would always look closely at the price of everything we put in our basket. And when we got to the cash register, he would do what I thought was the most embarrassing thing ever: he would try and negotiate with the cashier!But the crazy thing is… it usually worked.Noah Kagan (founder of AppSumo) has this thing he calls the “coffee challenge.” Basically you walk into a coffee shop, order whatever it is you want, and when it comes time to pay, ask for 10% off.If the cashier asks why, say “just cause.”Most of the time, the cashier will just give it to you.There are so many things in life that we think are “non-negotiable”, but in reality, we can totally get around it.For example, I applied for a business development role once that required 3–5 years of experience and I had almost zero (I was still in school at the time).So I decided to prove to them that I could still bring value. Instead of submitting my resume and sitting back, I decided to go out and pitch some companies on forming partnerships with them, and introduced those companies to the hiring manager. I got the offer.When I was applying for a product design position at Quora, I ran a usability test on the mobile app, mocked up some design suggestions, and sent it to the head of product design.He emailed me back the same day to schedule an interview.Apart from jobs like academic professions like medicine or law, job requirements are largely negotiable — you just have to prove that you can bring value to the table.People who aren’t willing to “break the rules” a little bit usually end up wasting years of time and money trying to achieve a goal they could’ve achieved with a lot less.2. Imposter syndrome is a good thingThe New York Times came out with this article a while ago, examining why people from certain groups do better than others economically.It may not politically correct to say it, but the truth is that Asian people are more successful than everyone else on average. “Indian-Americans earn almost double the national figure (roughly $90,000 per year in median household income versus $50,000). Iranian-, Lebanese- and Chinese-Americans are also top-earners.” — NY TimesThe biggest reason for this, according to the NY Times, is cultural. The groups that are more successful than others have 3 common characteristics: A superiority complex Some insecurity, or a feeling that you’re not good enough at what you do Impulse controlThe combination of believing that you can get to almost wherever you want to be, having discipline, and having insecurity about where you are is the formula for a successful, impactful career.Embrace that feeling of inadequacy.3. What’s “realistic” is just an illusionWhat’s realistic for you is entirely predicated on what you’ve been exposed to.When I was younger, I had some friends from lower income backgrounds whose families didn’t receive a high education.When they found out over time that my dad was a doctor, they’d be like “whoa, that’s amazing!!!” like it was some insanely big thing. In their mind, becoming a doctor was unrealistic.It was only because they didn’t know how.If someone told me that they wanted to be a doctor, I would think that’s a totally achievable goal. It’s because I know what it takes to get into medical school, the process behind the scenes, and I had been around people who have successfully done it.There are so many things in life you take for granted that someone else would think is crazy and unrealistic.Getting a graduate degree? There’s a guy somewhere whose family never went to college, and he thinks that’s unrealistic.Working for a Fortune 500 company? There’s a girl somewhere whose family works in minimum wage jobs, and she thinks that’s unrealistic.Running a multi-million dollar business? There’s a kid somewhere who comes from a upper middle class background, and he thinks that’s unrealistic.Work alongside the best in your field, read their books, listen to their interviews, study what they did to get where they are — and eventually, those crazy unrealistic dreams will become realistic for you.4. Don’t pick a career based on “average salaries” or empl. Yoghy Hananto

Forget Google: Here Are the 9 Startups That Actually Run the Internet | Inc.com

Sure, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are tech titans, making billions by selling web hosting and other services to the biggest businesses in the world.But they can’t be everywhere. And there are plenty of startups that help the web run smoothly, behind the scenes, in ways you don’t even realize. Here are the nine startups that keep the web running smoothly–and they’re doing such a good job you don’t even realize you’re using them.1. Docker: Packaging the webCompany name: DockerHeadquarters: San FranciscoFunding to date: $180 million in 5 roundsWho’s using it: Uber, eBay, Spotify, Business InsiderWith Docker, programmers get the ability to write their code once and run it anywhere–from their own laptops to Amazon’s gigantic cloud services. It makes it a lot easier for developers to build and manage their code, while helping companies get their sites bigger, faster.There are other companies in the space. But Docker is still the big Kahuna. Even we use Docker here at Business Insider.2. NGINX: Serving up the webCompany name: NGINXHeadquarters: San FranciscoFunding to date: $33 million in 3 roundsWho’s using it: NASA, GoGo Inflight Internet, WordPress, WikipediaPronounced “engine X,” NGINX calls its namesake web server software “the secret heart of the modern web.” Basically, it acts as the middleman between your browser and the website or app you actually want to visit. It’s been wildly successful, and NGINX claims that it powers one third of the most popular websites on the web. 3. Stripe: Taking payments for the webCompany name: StripeHeadquarters: San FranciscoFunding to date: $280 million in seven rounds Who uses it: Reddit, Kickstarter, Slack, Lyft, IndieGoGoStripe is meant to be the invisible payments part of the internet. Every time you hail a car with Lyft or pledge to a Kickstarter, you’re using Stripe to process your payment–whether or not you realize it. 4. MongoDB: Organizing the web’s informationCompany name: MongoDBHeadquarters: Dublin, IrelandFunding to date: $311.1 million in seven rounds Who uses it: Craigslist, EA, Business Insider, eHarmonyMongoDB is a hugely popular database company, helping companies store, organize, and access all of their information. The New York Times, for example, uses it to store all the data about social sharing for later analysis. So basically, whenever you play an EA game online, and you get a new item, that’s getting added to a MongoDB database somewhere. 5. CloudFlare: Getting you where you’re going fasterCompany name: CloudFlareHeadquarters: San FranciscoFunding to date: $182.05 million in 4 roundsWho uses it: League of Legends, Bain Capital, NASDAQ, MetallicaCloudFlare is what you’d call a “content delivery network,” or CDN. Basically, when you visit a website using CloudFlare, it detects where you’re at, and routes you to the closest server.Not only does it mean a better user experience–it can make the difference between life and death when it comes to trading on NASDAQ, or even a high stakes game of League of Legends. And as a nice side-effect, it provides protection against Distributed Denial of Service attacks (DDoS), the most common brute force method that bad guys use to take a website down, by simply routing web traffic around the stoppage. CloudFlare has claimed to handle a full 5 percent of the web’s traffic, globally. 6. Xamarin: Bringing apps everywhereCompany name: XamarinHeadquarters: San FranciscoFunding so far: $82 million in three roundsWho uses them: JetBlue, Draw A Stickman, Berkshire HathawayXamarin’s shtick is simple: Build an app once, and easily put it on iOS, Android, Windows, or whatever else with a minimum of gruntwork. It means that when you load up a pretty fair number of the apps you use every day, from JetBlue to popular games like “Draw a Stickman” or “Bastion,” you’re actually loading up Xamarin, too. Plus, in the JetBlue example, the airline’s Xamarin-powered app is actually what lets it accept Apple Pay payments. So there’s that. 7. Mixpanel: Helping websites help youCompany name: MixpanelHeadquarters: San FranciscoFunding to date: $77.02 million in 5 roundsWho’s using it: Uber, Airbnb, Match.com, Amazon’s TwitchMixpanel, a data analytics company founded in 2009 and funded by the likes of Y Combinator, Andreessen Horowitz, and PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, tells developers how exactly you’re using their websites and apps. So if you find a website’s login page too confusing, the developer might tweak it to streamline matters. Or if they find that you’re spending a lot of time on the photos of an Airbnb listing, it might be a sign that it’s time to redesign the page around photos. In fact, Mixpanel can gather enough data that it can help companies like Uber and Airbnb actually predict what you’re going to do next.8. DigitalOcean: Hosting websites everywhereCompany name: DigitalOceanHeadquarters: New YorkFunding to date: $123 million in 3 roundsWho uses them: Beyonce, lots and lots of smaller sitesDigitalOcean is a hot New Yor

Kisah Petani Kentang Jadi Miliuner dengan Omzet Rp 266 Miliar/Tahun

William Chase, seorang petani kentang yang kini mencapai kesuksesan sebagai seorang miliuner. Chase rajin melakukan publikasi untuk mengenalkan bisnisnya.Talenta ini yang membuatnya bangkit dari kebangkrutan di usia 32 tahun. Kini, Chase sukses menjadi seorang miliuner di usia 48 tahun.Chase mencoba peruntungan berbisnis keripik kentang kelas premium dengan merek Tyrrells, dan menjualnya ke Tesco, salah satu supermarket besar di negaranya, dan berhasil meraup keuntungan besar.Saat ini, ketika umurnya menginjak usia 56 tahun, Chase berhasil menjadi pemilik Chase Vodka, yang bahan bakunya berasal dari kentang yang tumbuh dari lahan miliknya.”Media sangat penting bagi saya dalam mempromosikan Tyrrells. (Produk) saya mengalahkan (produk) supermarket,” katanya, seperti dilansir BBC, Kamis (11/2/2016).Chase merupakan anak petani kentang yang tinggal di dekat kota Herefordshire, Leominster, Inggris. Chase membeli perkebunan dari keluarga ayahnya, ketika ia berusia 20 tahun. Saat itu, Chase mendapatkan pinjaman bank sebesar 200.000 poundsterling.Harga kentang cukup fluktuatif, hal ini membuat bisnis kentang juga diperkirakan akan naik-turun dalam 12 tahun ke depan.Di tahun 1992 silam, saat itu musim hujan hingga membuat kentang milik Chase tidak bisa panen dan membusuk di ladang. Karena itu, bisnis Chase ambruk. Ia terpaksa mengajukan kebangkrutan. “Saya sangat malu dan malu,” katanya.Setelah ‘melarikan diri’ ke Australia selama beberapa bulan, ia kembali ke Herefordshire, dan berhasil meminjam dana untuk membeli kembali peternakan dan memulai bisnis lagi.Kali ini, untuk bisa mendapatkan uang banyak, Chase memutuskan menjadi pedagang kentang. Membeli kentang dari sejumlah peternakan dan menjualnya ke supermarket.Namun, Chase nyaris frustasi karena supermarket menolak kentang-kentang yang kualitasnya tidak bagus.”Saya mengirim 10 kentang setiap hari, dan 5 dari 10 kentang itu dikembalikan. Ini sangat menyakitkan, bagaimana supermarket memperlakukan kami para petani,” ucap dia.Di tahun 2002, hidup Chase berubah. Ia mengetahui bahwa kentang-kentang yang dulu ditolak oleh supermarket alias barang reject, diminati oleh produsen keripik di AS, Kettle.Kettle merupakan salah satu perusahaan yang memproduksi keripik kentang kelas premium, yang irisan kentangnya lebih tebal dibandingkan dengan keripik kentang lainnya.Meskipun tidak memiliki pengalaman sebagai pembuat keripik, namun Chase meyakini akan mampu membuat keripik kentang kelas premium.Chase kemudian kembali ke Inggris, ia membangun sebuah fasilitas pembuatan keripik kentang di peternakan milik keluarganya, dan fasilitas tersebut dinamai Tyrrells dan berjalan enam bulan kemudian.Untuk mempromosikan produknya, Chase melakukan publikasi dengan mengunjungi toko-toko makanan di Inggris dan memberikan sampel keripik miliknya.”Saya jual keripik Tyrrells 1 poundsterling satu bungkus dan bisa dijual lagi 2 poundsterling,” ucap Chase.Supermarket seperti Waitrose juga mulai mengikuti jejak Chase. Di tahun 2006, ternyata Tesco menjual keripik Tyrrells di bawah harga eceran yang disarankan.Chase sebagai pemilik merek keripik Tyrrells marah dan menuntut Tesco untuk menghentikan penjualan keripik miliknya. Penjualan keripik Tyrrells terus tumbuh selama beberapa tahun terakhir, dan Chase mampu meraup omzet hingga 14 juta poundsterling per tahun atau sekitar Rp 266 miliar.Chase mencoba meminjam uang di perbankan untuk memperluas bisnisnya.Merasa belum puas dengan bisnis Tyrrells, Chase yang merupakan pemegang saham tunggal di perusahaan kentang tersebut, memutuskan menjual kepemilikannya di tahun 2008 untuk modal bisnis dan mendapatkan 40 juta poundsterling dari penjualannya tersebut.Chase kemudian membentuk bisnis baru. Chase mencoba peruntungan bisnis lain, yaitu mengubah kentang menjadi vodka kelas premium.Chase membeli sebuah sistem distilasi, dari situlah bisnis vodka Chase lahir. Vodka milik Chase dihargai 35 poundsterling per botol.Kendati demikian, Chase mengakui bisnis vodka tidak lebih menguntungkan ketimbang bisnis keripik kentang. Namun, Chase telah banyak mempekerjakan karyawan. Chase fokus untuk mengekspor produknya. Ia banyak menghabiskan waktu untuk keliling dunia demi membangun bisnisnya.Selain vodka, Chase juga memproduksi gin dan wiski dan mampu terjual 10.000 botol seminggu.(ewi/wdl)
