How to dress if you become the CEO at the age of 20 ?

Well, I was 20 when I started this blog. Of late there are many entrepreneurs that make it big at an early age. The aforementioned statement is backed up by stuff like Forbes 20 under 20, and Rolls Royce states that the average age of people buying the double R is reducing in the recent times.

There’s lot of misconceptions when it comes to the word SUCCESS. People often believe that successful people need to behave in a particular way. Well, I hope this post reaches Dan Bilzerian and Jake Paul. Well, continuing from where I left it’s not necessary to follow what our ancestors did. People often have this misconception that successful people need to have their shirt tucked in 24/7 (sarcasm) or wear the pants 2 centimeter below the rib cage. Mate, the times are changed and is changing as I jot this post.

Well, Well, Well that was a lengthy intro. Let’s hit to the title of this post.

Hmmm, the above 4 photos sums it all.

1. Have more than 1 coat in your closet. It’s no more black and black, or blue and blue. Of late the coats come in variety of hues and if you are green on the balance sheet then the price tag shouldn’t be a concern.

2. Go the traditional way when required. Well, you could be 20 but what if you are inking a deal with a 72 year old CEO. Well going too millennial may not be right in such occasion because boy you might have the Lambo and the Dom but the gentleman on the other end’s probably owning a yacht with a runway for his A380 (sarcasm).

3. Spectacles – I know you are loyal with your lady but honey you cannot be the same with those glasses. You are gonna need different spectacles depending on your outfit and the occasion.

Have you watched Aamir Khan in first half of Gajni ? Well, girls do love Mr. Perfectionist.

Social media memes often portray men as lazy but boy there definitely should be some distinction between you and the regular folks. Of course in a good way though.

Last but not the least, Man get those sneakers and chinos rolling in all its glory on that weekend date, Well if you dating a daughter of a Fortune 100’s CEO this may not be a good idea though 😛

I switched from iPhone to Samsung and here’s my experience…

Well I started working for a major Australian telecommunication company and a fraction of my job involves suggesting suitable mobile phone to lovely customer’s of the company. And of the big chunk of sales I make the majority of the folks go for flagship phones from Apple and Samsung. Well, I’m an Apple fanboy and I switched from iPhone 12 to Samsung Galaxy S22 so that I’d be able to help the Android lovers too.

So let me start with the good stuff about the S22. Boy oh boy the design looks amazing and is dope AF. However, there’s a tiny bit that I did not like. The bottom edge of the camera bump on the LHS wasn’t chamfered correctly and it’s a bit too sharp. The second thing I miss is the ease at which I can put my phone to silent mode. On the iPhone it’s just a small push on the silent switch and your phone goes to silent.

The selfie camera on the Samsung is definitely better than the iPhone for portrait photography as it smoothens the skin and the image looks decent for average dudes like me. On the iPhone the selfie camera clicks sharp images and I often had to use Snapseed to get the photo looking good.

The battery life ain’t that great on the Samsung S22 when compared with my old iPhone and the charging time from 30% to 80% is slightly slower than iPhone and I used fast charger during my tests.

The benefit of owning a Samsung is you can update the software using mobile data unlike iPhone. This being a 5G phone I get speeds up to 100 MBPS on LTE and my home Wi-Fi is slower than my mobile data and I actually love using mobile data over Wi-Fi.

The next question is, “Is it worth the money ?” Well the MRP of 128 GB model of the S22 costs 85999 rupees and I got it for 69000. This falls in the premium bucket and the OS doesn’t feel premium. The hardware is great but Samsung needs to ditch Android and create an OS that’s really cool like the iOS. Well, if you are an existing android user and upgrade to the S22 you are gonna like it but moving from iOS to android feels more like moving from S Class to E Class.

I never thought I’d be going back to android when I got my first iPhone in 2016 and my workflow revolved around iCloud. But now I’m back to Google Drive. This decision saves me money because Google Drive offers free storage up to 15 GB and iCloud offers only 5 GB of free storage.

Also I had logged into many applications using Apple ID and now I face issues to log into certain apps on Android and I have to use website version of the App. One such app is Skillshare.

Also unlocking the phone with face doesn’t work properly in low light conditions on the S22.

Well, that was my experience with the S22. Before closing the tab do checkout my other posts. Byeeee 🙂
