Intro

Any company, especially startups facing issues in controlling their churn rate, is a good problem to be solved. It means you have enough traction, but something is not right somewhere along the user’s journey.


Inbox Crazy

Once I came back from a week-long holiday. I opened my Gmail — 500+ new emails sitting in my inbox. “Inbox zero” status — Gone! I set aside half a day to triage them. 80% of them are newsletters, company updates, marketing emails. 15% are transactional emails like invoices, bank notification, order confirmation, etc., while a handful of them require me to reply to them (CA asking me for some document, someone reached out to me, etc.).

My Personal Email Inbox

The above incident has happened to me too many times until a few weeks ago. I have been on the Inbox Zero wagon…


Intro

Recently, one of the underdog Bollywood celebrities — Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide. Why he did it is still being speculated; another heated debate that was doing the rounds was how nepotism in the film industry doesn’t promote new talent — like Sushant.

Salvator Mundi

Painting on the left is by the renowned Leonardo da Vinci. Recently It was last sold for US$450M. Obviously, such exorbitantly priced paintings are out of reach for most investors. Only a select few of the ultra-wealthy would be able to own such a high priced painting. Such paintings are very illiquid, not because you can’t trade them but it is costly to trade them as there are only handful of people who can be part of this market.

If anyone wants to buy, they have to buy the whole painting. There is also an issue of trust, buyers need…
