"You don't have to study business to be a successful entrepreneur, it can all start at university"- Graham Cooper

Young people believe they will be their own boss within the next five years, with many claiming that they have started to work on their business ideas or are thinking of starting a business.

Are you also among the bunch of crazy people who are still studying in the university and want to have your own startup? You think that your business idea is so great that you are going to be the next millionaire but you have just no idea as to where to start?

Well, let me try to help you in this case and try to give you a solution. Often, while starting from the scratch without a mentor who has a great business sense needs a lot of courage. Abd when you have gathered the courage to do so and made up your mind then never look back. You might not have the resources that are required for your idea but mind you, you have ample opportunities to gather those resources and get that experience.

It's you who has to make the consistent effort and identify that opportunity. You are supposed to bring in the discipline in your life.

"Discipline may not be the first quality people associate with entrepreneurship. It's a discipline into itself .Discipline is paramount when starting a venture!"

It's not tough to be disciplined. Once you have the structure ready and a place to start-you have nailed it as being disciplined would provide direction in an otherwise very confusing environment.

So, in order to help you to get dangerously organized, Butteyly Yours, our product based startup headquartered in Delhi is breaking the ice with its extremely cool product for the budding entrepreneurs, to make them less busy and more productive.

You missed a deadline again? You do set reminders on your mobile but you are still unable to get organised & you fail to achieve your goals. Its been long that you haven't yet been selected as the star performer of your organisation?

If you agree to all the above statements, the solution to your hassles is getting a planner. Olanning and scheduling your stuff a day in advance always helps, and saves on time and effort.

If you want to be counted among the one's that break the stereotypes and believe in creating their own identity, then make planning a part of your routine and be disciplined in your efforts to work on the planned tasks during the day.
