Startpreneur – Your Story – the Newsletter


This year’s Christmas miracle is a story that will warm your heart, especially in times marked by political unrest and tension. Dayami’s list was typical for a child her age – clothes, art supplies, slime – written in Spanish and sent with the hope that it would reach Santa.

As luck would have it, things got real and the tattered balloon landed across the border, near a ranch in Arizona. When ranch owner Randy Heiss first spotted it, he thought it was trash. But on realising that it was a Christmas wishlist – similar to the ones he would write as a child – Randy was inspired to make the little girl’s wishes come true. With some help from his wife and a local radio station, Randy delivered Dayami her very own Christmas miracle.

Here’s hoping all your wishes come true too.

Merry Christmas!

Cheers,
Team YourStory


Stories you shouldn’t miss

Bengaluru-based home interiors startup Design Cafe raised Series B funding of Rs 200 crore led by private equity firm WestBridge Capital along with existing investor Fireside Ventures. The startup plans to use this fund to expand its operations in six cities including Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Hyderabad.

In a report by Trust Research Advisory, Samsung Mobile emerged as India’s most trusted brand, closely followed by Tata Motors. Apple was at number 3 despite its declining market share, especially in the smartphone segment. Telecom service provider Reliance Jio and automobile manufacturer Maruti Suzuki were fourth and fifth, respectively.

With just a few days left until the year-end, some new tax-related changes are being put in place for Indians. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley hinted that a standard GST rate may emerge by merging the 12 and 18 percent slabs for commonly used goods.

Dream big and aim even bigger – this has been the mantra for 2018, a year best defined as a sum total of ups and downs. Despite all the hardships, though, one thing that has served as a constant source of inspiration is the success stories – or simply the stories of ceaseless grit and courage – of some of the startups and entrepreneurs. We list our Top 20 startups of 2018.

The Secret Life of a Highly Sensitive Person – Member Feature Stories – Medium


How to Tell If You’re a Highly Sensitive Person
When I first encountered a description of what it means to be an HSP, it was like looking at myself in the mirror. I hadn’t realized there was a specific term to describe my way of perceiving the world. It brought me incredible relief to know I wasn’t alone.

If you suspect you might be an HSP, see if you relate to the characteristics below.

Your empathic nature makes you a master of emotional intelligence and relating to others.
You have a vibrant inner life. For you, being alone is grounding, not lonely.
You think before you act. This means you excel at strategy and planning — that is, if you can move past second-guessing yourself and perfectionism-induced procrastination.
You are conscientious and prepare, which makes you trustworthy and reliable. But if you’re caught off-guard in a meeting or conversation, you get easily overstimulated and may recoil.
You’re able to sense conflict and mitigate it before it becomes a problem (and often before others are even aware of it). This is one reason HSPs are great problem solvers and team members.
You have a low annoyance threshold. It’s particularly hard for you to work in noisy (sirens going by are the worst), overly bright, or aesthetically abrasive environments. You have trouble concentrating if you feel slightly uncomfortable. You also might be extra-sensitive to fragrances or coarse fabrics.
You love connecting with people, but at a big party you’re most likely to be found in a quiet corner chatting with a few people, getting into deep, far-ranging topics (or hanging out with the resident dog or cat).
You are deeply moved by art, literature, or music and often unexplainably affected after witnessing the pain or suffering of other human beings. This is why HSPs tend to excel in careers like medicine, teaching, and even social entrepreneurship, but it also means HSPs need to be mindful about the news and content they consume.
You cry more easily, both from sadness and happiness.
