Some people take a while to learn the ins and outs of entrepreneurship, and slowly adapt themselves to the way of life of the freedom business owner. For others, it comes more naturally. But it very rarely comes as naturally as it did to Sukhi Wahiwala, who was a millionaire business owner by the age of 21. Sure, it helped that he came from a long line of hardworking businesspeople, but making a million before most of your peers have even finished university isn’t something you can chance. That’s why I called Sukhi into Hardcore MBA to discuss the secrets of his success.
In our talk, Sukhi and I discuss:
- The importance of remaining present and aware in all decisions about money, and Sukhi’s ‘traffic light’ system for deciding if an investment is the right one.
- The need for discipline and the nurturing of the mind in order to be a top entrepreneur.
- And the use of ‘DISC’ profiling to make sure your team is well balanced and can achieve what you ask of it.
“After I became very ill at the age of 31, I realized that when I recovered I wanted to help people and share the knowledge that I had gained from my own experiences,” said Sukhi. “That was what led me into coaching and into a group of new businesses that are based around what I call the environment of support. But ultimately, I think if you’re going to help the world, you need to succeed in the world first. You can’t help the poor if you are poor yourself. Look at Bill Gates and Warren Buffet – they give out huge amounts of money, more than they would have been able to if they had not devoted themselves to becoming successful in the first place.”
Sukhi is a wonderfully intelligent and thoughtful man who can really provide a fresh perspective on life. Which is why I’m pleased to announce that we have an additional bonus for Hardcore MBA listeners this week – a free coaching session with this master entrepreneur himself. To be considered for a free coaching session, all you need to do is write an honest review of this podcast, share it with as many people as you can, and send me an email at erlend (at) mroutsource (dot) com to explain why you should be a winner. And don’t forget to check out Sukhi’s website for more great tips.
