Our obsession with 'billion' has made us lose touch with reality.

If you are building a startup, it HAS to be a unicorn. If you are an
entrepreneur, you have to be a billionaire.

Gentle reminder: A billion dollars is more than Rs 7,000 crores. The benchmark
for success has to be that high? Really?

Building world-changing companies is an amazing aspiration. And in the process,
if someone builds a huge company and becomes a billionaire, all power to them --
it is fantastic.

But a lot of the time, it is the valuation that is solely driving the whole

At HabitStrong, my aspiration is to build a great company that helps customers
live happier and more meaningful lives. In that process, we will hopefully build
a profitable company that takes care of the team members and generates a good
return to investors.

I am not building an elusive unicorn. I would rather build a real company that
does not need to do valuation-circus to stay alive.
