Less is more, life is beautiful that way.
As a designer, design principles continue to inspire whatever I do in life and this led me to start with the most basics of human desire.
The craving to get appreciated, to feel valued.
“The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.” – Dalai Lama
For some, this is a matter of life and death sometimes.
people want to be valued, no matter who they are and what they do.
When we were thinking of Poppins, me and my cofounder Manju went out and talked to people, these open-ended talks taught us a lot and inspired us to create something meaningful, something which helps people feel good and valued. we didn't have any idea what it would be like.
And honestly, I think it's a very humble thing, although this route was harder, I and my co-founder still choose this, because our beliefs told us to go with it. (and when I look back, I think it was the best decision)
People are carried away with material things, but in the end, all that matters is a word of appreciation, ancient philosophers to modern institutions like Harvard, everyone tells and agrees on that.
Yet there are so few people solving this huge gap between appreciations.
This also gives us hope that we're on the right path.
This is the reason every single day of the past 8-9 months have never felt like I'm working, I have constantly been into the flow state, driven by the larger goal.
Probably this is hard to express but every time a user appreciates someone on Poppins, I think it pays off. we're making a difference for someone.
It's worth it. every single day.
and we're just getting started :)
Join us in this journey, welcome to Poppins
