Failing boldly


Failures happen no matter how hard you work to be successful. Even the most successful people have failed at a point of time in their life. This didn’t stop them from being successful and is no reason for you to stop being successful too.

Setting goals


Your competitors have a goal set in their mind and are always achieve it. That’s why they are at the top of the ladder instead of you. Try setting small term goals that you can achieve on a daily basis instead of long term goal which you may not achieve.

Don’t depend on luck


Luck doesn’t play a big part on your success but hard work and dedication do. Luck at times plays a really small part, if any and even that doesn’t guarantee your success. Don’t wait for the perfect time or idea to come to you, instead work hard and you might surprise yourself by getting that perfect idea one day for sure.

Stay alert


Be alert of your surroundings because, you never know when an opportunity might pass by. Receiving news about the competition or the market does help from time to time.





Another thing about successful people is that they never give up. No matter how many times they fail, they get up and do it again and again until they win. You can also persevere by willingly facing any challenges that come your way, even if they seem impossible at times.

What Rego did for Sleek

Rego not only took care of all the advertising and communication needs of Sleek, but also gave them its brand positioning that set the graph soaring for Sleek. The creative team derived a Brand Positioning that cut through all the challenges the brand was facing when it came to consumer confidence. It was the Big Idea that was soon going to change the fortunes of Sleek, cut through their competition, and put them in a leadership position in the market.

Sleek International

Brand Campaign 2011-2012

Our next strategy was to rope in a brand ambassador to further push our Brand Positioning of ‘The Kitchen Specialist’, pointed towards India’s most popular master chef Sanjeev Kapoor. The idea that ‘A Specialist like Sanjeev Kapoor endorses the Kitchen Specialist – Sleek’ was a proposition that appealed to the client.

Sanjeev Kapoor became Sleek’s Brand Ambassador, and he drove home the point of Sleek being a ‘Kitchen Specialist’.

The next brand campaign with Sanjeev Kapoor in a Sleek Kitchen, talking in a most matter-of-fact way about what makes Sleek a Kitchen Specialist, was an extremely believable campaign that won the trust of the consumer, and praise from even the competition.


The Result

In over 5 years of Rego’s Branding of Sleek, enabled Sleek to grow 5 times. Their dealer network grew from 100 in 2009 to 900+ dealers today. Sleek has given immense awareness due to the Brand Positioning created by Rego – Sleek, The Kitchen Specialist. The biggest impact was the merger with Asian Paints in 2013.

10 Myths about Money


Coins and plant, isolated on white background

Money is something that drives us all to spend our adult life trying to earn more of. We can’t live without it and cannot live with it too. However, some people have built this misconception about having money that really isn’t true. In this blog we discuss these topics and bust some myths that people have regarding money

Here are 10 myths about money that everyone should know:

Buying things on sale is a great way to save money


People love buying a lot of things during sale, but in reality, buying things on sale has little to do with saving money. Unless you stop at the bank and deposit the difference between the sale price and the regular price, you’re not saving at all. At best, you’re simply spending less.

More money you earn, the happier you’ll be


One thing that everyone should know by now is that money doesn’t equals happiness. The people who earn a lot of money end up spending more as their standard of living grows. Even some research shows that what you spend your money on influences your happiness.

Money is the root of all evil


The truth is that money isn’t good or bad, it’s what you do with it that matters. You have to know that money is about choice, and you can use it to reach your goals, whether, to you, it means creating a savings account so that you don’t have to worry, donating it to charity or leaving it for your kids.

It’s too risky to invest your money

In reality, it’s too risky to not invest your money. Suppose you have stashed some money you’ve saved in a savings account, the chances of losing that money to inflation is higher than investing it.

It’s better to use cash than credit cards while shopping


While cash may come in handy for making purchases but using credit cards has its benefits also. Making purchases via credit cards lets us review how much we spend in one, consolidated place. Plus, credit cards offer protection like insurance for purchases, travel insurance, and the ability to dispute charges.

Wanting money doesn’t make you selfish or materialistic


Money gives you the means to lead the kind of life you want: fulfilling, interesting, secure and independent. Being financially rich gives you choices so you can live a more rewarding life.

Making money isn’t a race


Competition certainly fuels some people’s desire to make more money and sometimes these competitors tend to do things that they shouldn’t for bigger payoffs. But if you stay focused on your own goals and ignore the competitors you will obviously earn more.

You don’t need to have more money to make more money


Small sums can add up to big dividends if you properly use the money you have. People with less money often tend to spend the money they have. Whereas, people with more money think twice before spending it as they rather have more money than none.

Time is money


Quoted by Benjamin Franklin, this statement is true in a sense that earning a salary generally involves the expenditure of time. However, the actual meaning of this statement is to make money even while you’re not working. That’s why investments, royalties and property are important in the acquisition of wealth.

More money means less time with family


If you make a lot of money that means you get to spend less time with your family. This is obviously a myth as if you design and plan your lifestyle the right way, you’ll have plenty of time to spend with your family and make money at the same time.

7 Things about Youth Your Boss Should Know

boss and employee

Today’s youth are a different lot in the workplace. They want to prove their worth in the workplace and go great lengths to do so. This is something that comes as a surprise to many Bosses and Employers who don’t know how to handle them. In this blog we have compiled a list of seven things that every Boss should know about the youth.

Here are seven things every boss should know about the youth:

Their job means everything to them


For youth their job is their life, their identity, it’s what they think about all the time. They want to succeed in their life and the way they see it, only if they are able to succeed at work, they can succeed in life.

They aren’t motivated as much by money

Employee Motivation

Many youth that live with their families don’t need too much of money to spend on things. That’s why, bigger paychecks isn’t a tool of motivation for them only an incentive for the work they do.

They aren’t shy

no shyness

Today’s youth aren’t like the elders who would sit silent and watch. They want their opinion to be heard and they don’t shy away from voicing their opinions. This is in a way a good thing for the bosses, but some might see it as being disrespectful to them.

They aren’t keen on doing boring work  



Youngsters want to do work that’s engaging and also is interesting. They are put-off by work that seems boring or too tedious. It’s mostly because they want to be seen doing work that contributes to the company and helps in their growth.

They are risk takers


Today’s youth are big risk takers. Unlike the old generation which consist of people doing everything they can to avoid risk, they are up for any challenge that they might come across.

They don’t stay at one place forever



Youngsters love to explore, be it the world or the work. They aren’t as loyal as many older employees who prefer to stick to one place. It’s not because they are incompetent or disloyal, it’s just that they haven’t come to the decision of what they actually want to achieve in life.

They understand technology better


Having been born at a time when technology had become a part of our lives is what gives them an edge over other senior figures. Also with time, technology became less challenging and more user-friendly. Because of that, today’s youth can do better jobs and save time as well.


What Will Advertising Be Like In 100 Years?

rego advertising


Advertising is an industry that has evolved with the times. It started with a single piece of paper that soon transformed into a billboard, then radio, and then television until finally it made its presence in the digital world. This makes one wonder what advertising is going to be like in a hundred years.

Obviously, technology is going to play a bigger part. Along with the digital medium that is growing at a rapid pace. But the biggest change will be in the traditional medium like print, radio and television. Traditional advertising will give way to more unconventional and innovative methods.

Here’s what the future holds for the advertising industry in 100 years:


With the rise of people using tablets and smart phones to access the news and read magazines, print ads won’t be around that much. Instead they will be present in the e-zines or e-papers.


Radio is perhaps the oldest form of advertising that is still relevant today. Nowadays with the whole world being on the internet even radio stations have made their presence online. Whether this affects the way advertising is done in radio is yet to be seen.


When television advertising started some sixty years ago, it changed the way people advertised their products. It was seen as a revolutionary medium then, and now with video streaming sites online, it isn’t as effective as it was. In the future too, instead of television, the ads will be shown in video streaming sites just like the ones seen in streaming site like YouTube.


In the digital medium, which today although is still in its early years has started to make its impact felt. Today many brands advertise in the digital space instead of the traditional medium. In the future too, digital will have involved into something extraordinary and might replace traditional as the primary medium for advertising.

Even though its 100 years into the future, one thing that’s for sure, is that advertising will still exist as it does today. Whether it will be impactful or not is something to wonder about…

News- Is it useful and how we might fix it


Everyone watches news channels or read about news in the paper or in social media. Without news one might not be aware of certain events that are happening around them. News basically ranges from different topics and you can find news about sports, politics, world, nation, local, etc. You can find news everywhere in papers, television and online. With a country as diverse as ours, you can find news in various languages too.

Arriving at the main question of the topic – is news useful? I would say it really is, but it depends upon your resources. In today’s age with everything going digital one does not really have to wait for the news to tell what’s going on, people find the topics themselves before it becomes anything major. The only problem is that it may not be relevant or authentic and at times that’s what most people will perceive as the original version.

Even though it being a problem, it is something that cannot easily be fixed unless more people know about it. If it were up to me, this is how I would do it:

  1. Educate

The more people know about the difference between satire news articles and the original news the easier it becomes for them to trust the news. There are also many other news publishing sites which many don’t know but at times post many helpful news articles. It will be better if more people are aware of such news sites.

  1. Post my own take of the news

If I write about the news the way I perceived it, it will help people understand what the news was about rather than make their own assumptions. Plus this will encourage more and more people to write their own take of the news, thereby making people aware of what’s happening around them without referring to news articles.

  1. Use social media

With social media it becomes easier to connect with more people and spread the news faster than any other medium. The audience in these sites is mostly youngsters and exposing them to what’s happening around them along with asking their opinion of the current news is a great way to educate them.

Surely, we all read the news and follow it from time to time be it in the news channels or online but one thing that many agree on is that it is useful.

Could I Quit My Day Job?


Day jobs are something that everyone is expected to do once they have decided on their career path. Many adapt to it once they get the hang of things, but it doesn’t hold the same for everyone. There comes a point of time in our lives when we ask ourselves the question, ‘Is this what I am meant to do for the rest of my life?’, and that’s when some of us take the most important decision of our lives ever – quit our job.

Quitting a job is not an easy decision and some even reconsider, but before you quit do consider the following points:

  • Am I financially stable to look after myself even without a job?
  • Have I planned out what to do once I quit my job?
  • My decision to quit the job is final and I won’t back out.

Once you’ve quit your job you’ll ask yourself the next important question, ‘what next?’ Unless you haven’t figured it out, you don’t have to worry, because you’ve got plenty of time until you find something worth doing. Till then you can try out one of these things:



Visit places that you haven’t been to in a long while, if you don’t have a list of places that you want to visit, make one and check them off once you do.



If you love to write, then you can start your own blog and you can also make some money off of it. This way you’ll have a hobby that will also pay you.



Have some books that you want to read but didn’t have the time to? Well now is as good a time as any to start reading.



Did those years of work put you out of shape? Then you need to start exercising. It’s not necessary to hit the gym, some jogging and long walks work better than spending hours lifting weights.



Pick up an old hobby that you had quit or even better start a new one. You’d get to learn something new and you won’t get bored also.

In conclusion, the way I see it, quitting your day job to pursue your dream takes more than just an effort. But when you do achieve your goals after having quit your job is worth all the hard work and effort that you put towards it.


Tips on writing a great corporate blog


Many organizations have been grappling with blogging for years, i.e. whether blogging is actually beneficial for their organizations and whether it can help them or not. However, writing a corporate blog has its benefits and can actually help your organization create its own impression on readers and target audiences. However, a corporate blog has to be written skillfully in order to create the right kind of impact. Blogging is not public relations and marketing in the conventional sense but there are several aspects towards successfully creating content that is compelling and noteworthy. You should always start off your post with a compelling content piece and fragment that captures the attention of your readers. This content fragment will definitely spur the interest of your readers and will get your target audience to read the entire piece. Journalists use this strategy to great effect and you should consider reading the first few sentences and approaches presented in newspaper articles and pieces.

You should also think of breaking up text into specific numbered lists and bullet points in order to make articles more readable for your target audiences. Readers will find it easier to run through your blog post and will also get an idea of what it actually talks about. You should also make use of keywords for writing your blog as search engine optimization or SEO helps your blog generate traffic and reach out to more and more audiences. You should do your research on generating keywords and you can even use Google Ad Words for this purpose. You should never stray off the beaten track when it comes to a corporate blog. Stick to what you know best and try and unleash your expertise through your blog. You should write about what you know best and what you are passionate about.

You should also think of referring to several articles and blogs written by industry experts on your preferred subject. You should look to integrate backlinks and give credit to people when you use quotes and other phrases. This will get more people interested in your blog and will get you industry attention as well. You should also integrate things that you find interesting yourself. You should always follow up on topics related to your industry and find interesting and valuable information. This will help you structure your ideas and find topics more easily for your blog.
