Mobisy's Head Shoulder and Foot

I came across this extremely good blog today. It basically tells you how important it is for a start-up to find a Wise Head to question everything, a Broad shoulder to weep and generally to support you when you need, and a strong foot to kick you in the butt when you need it !!

I agree with almost everything mike says here. It matches quite well with my own experience. It got me thinking about who would be the head , shoulder and foot of Mobisy if we have one and turns out we already have those positions filled ..:-).

Chhavi and sometimes Bhupender act like our wise heads, they want us to cross check everything and assume nothing !! Also we have some nice advisers from the industry who help us keep our own head on the shoulder.
The shoulder job is more divided and is done by all of us from time to time. Obviously it helps that in addition to being co-founders of Mobisy we are firstly great friends of each other and that chemistry helps to pull each other up when things do not look as well as they should.
As far as foot is concerned, similar to mike, our respective spouses do that job extremely well. They will not let us fail or accept failure.
