“What really drives me is the feeling of making an impact and success for me is not just making money“. One of the Manu Kumar’s motivating words which made me dream past shadows. I feel lucky that I found him and now I am utilizing his lessons to form my future the manner in which I need.
Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi VP with India’s PM Mr. Narendra Modi Sir.
Hello! I am currently pursuing my B.Tech degree in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IIT HYD). While doing my engineering I come across many things which you get to know and can organize in colleges like the college fest. So, when I just entered my 2nd year, I decided to join my college fest team and I got selected for the marketing domain in the team. During my tenure, I learned so many things like how to pitch the officials for sponsoring our fest, how to work with a team, and in very less time I developed so much interest in this domain that I decided to make my career in the Marketing profession. While working for my fest, I came across this person Manu Kumar Jain who is the Vice President, Xiaomi, and Managing Director, Xiaomi India. I went through his biography, his work, and I have found that he has done a lot of things in his life which has made me look up to him as an idol. I got very fascinated with his journey and how much of work he has done in his life till now and then I started to follow him.
He also did his B.tech from IIT and got placed in an IT company but for a non-core domain based on his Mathematical skills. He then pursued his MBA from one of the top IIMs and joined McKinsey. After some years, he started his own company, Jabong, and brought the revolution in the fashion sector. After some years, he left it and joined Xiaomi. Starting from scratch he has led these companies to the leading brands’ list. I then started following him on Xpert where I am able to get to know about him in a better and useful way which a fan always wants, to know about his idol very closely. After following him over there, I get to know many things which are hard to find in general.
What I learned from him:
To follow and work for your passion,
Risks are important and everyone should take risks to achieve something big,
You can achieve what you want from your hard work and dedication,
How to lead a team,
How you can make something a brand which was nothing earlier,
How to evolve yourself with time and think innovative,
How you can build a brand.
