MissMalini's Investor, Rehan Yar Khan Shares Tips On How To Make Your Own LuckPooja Maheshwary , 12 Nov 2019
Make Your Own Luck by Bob Miglani and Rehan Yar Khan
2020 is less than 2 months away; besides feeling anxiety over time passing away, I’m a little disappointed to see the dearth of checks on my must-read
list. I managed to read only a few books this year. However, I’m really glad I got my hands on the latest book to hit the shelves—Make Your Own Luck—
before the year ends. For two very good reasons—
not only is it written by MissMalini’s very own investor, Managing Partner of Orios Venture Partners, Rehan Yar Khan
, but it’s also a perfect read to inspire those who want to start their own business
Here’s All You Need To Know
Co-written by author Bob Miglani, the book recounts numerous experiences from the duo’s lives and careers. As a reader, the biggest takeaway was the insights on ways to improve the odds of success. The authors have grouped these into what they call ‘luck accelerators’, which as the phrase suggests are things to practice to increase your luck. Such as how being better is not usually the answer, being or doing something different is a better solution. Or how it’s better to have multiple Plan A’s, as opposed to having a Plan A and a Plan B.
Here are the seven ‘luck accelerators’:
- Prepare deeply
- Solve a problem for others
- Do the hard things
- Have a beginner’s mind
- Save time and money with multiple Plan A’s (as opposed to having a Plan A and a Plan B)
- Practice randomness
- Be different, not better
Who Should Read It
I’d recommend this book for those who are startup founders, those in sales and corporate careers, and those who are looking to start their own business. And what’s more?! Rehan and Bob are currently on a book tour—they’ve already covered Delhi and Gurugram, and are set to go to Bangalore and Mumbai next. Isn’t that cool? If you want to catch them in your city, here are the details:
- November 14, 6 pm at WeWork Galaxy, Residency Road, Bangalore
- November 15, 7 pm at Soho House, Santacruz West, Mumbai
- November 16, 7 PM at Ministry of New, Fort, Mumbai
