Ritesh Agarwal, the Founder of OYO rooms, became a millionaire at the age of 22. For someone who shares a similar dream like Ritesh, I have always admired him.
Ritesh was always fond of being an entrepreneur. The fact that someone knows what he wants in life at such a young age is astonishing. He loved computers and coding. He dropped out of college and does not have a formal education. Yet, today he has achieved a success which many people take years to attain.
During his entrepreneurial journey, he met different people, understood their businesses, their journey, the obstacles they faced. He tried to learn from these experiences. One day, at a mere age of 22, he established his own venture- OYO rooms. Today, OYO is the biggest and the most affordable chain of hotels.
I too had a dream of starting my own venture. But, unfortunately, I never got the right kind of guidance. I had doubts and fear in my mind. I used to read about businessmen going to top tier B-schools, having multiples degrees, and running successful companies. And this very thought was ingrained in my mind. Even after completing my formal education, I could not take a risk of quitting my job to start my own venture.
Looking at Ritesh’s success gives me inspiration. Doesn’t matter if you did not attend a fancy B-school or have a fancy degree, what matters is your hard work and dedication to achieve something, no matter how many hurdles you need to cross.
I am thankful that I got introduced to the Xpert App. It enabled me to learn everything about Ritesh Agarwal– his background, education, journey, experiences, obstacles faced, and much more. Reading and listening to him answer questions inspired me to take a risk and start my own venture.
