The Why!

Recently, I tweeted

This tweet was not just an out of the blue enlightenment; it has been in my subconscious for a long time, but I never actively tried to unearth it. If you are creating a startup, you will probably agree with me that there are times when you wonder why you are doing this and what its real purpose is.

I ask these questions often while building Totspot, and I try to seek a better answer every day. Maybe I subconsciously know the answer already, but now I have finally unearthed it to consciously understand “The Why”.

Totspot is a peer-to-peer marketplace for buying and selling used clothes for kids. However, our mission is not just about enabling people to dress up their kids. Instead, it encompasses a much bigger vision.

I often buy clothes for my kids on Totspot, and I’ve realized I do this not just because I want to save money, but because it gives me joy to see my kids feeling happy when a package arrives at our doorstep. I see their happy faces as they are opening the packages, and I also become happy.

So, Totspot is not just about helping people find a better way to dress their kids; it is about people finding happiness through the process, and it is about raising happy kids.

Why am I building Totspot? My answer to “The Why” is that I want to enable parents to raise a whole new generation of happiness. This is my vision for Totspot, which has begun to change the world. All this, and we have only just started.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
