Youth is a period in one’s life when his/her impetus to rebel peaks. Each one of us wants to follow our heart and intuition - now more than ever - and see where it leads. However, only a few inherit the courage to break the stereotypes to finally conquer their dreams.
Four years ago, a young boy hailing from Madhya Pradesh, India decided to take the leash in his hands and broke free of the shackles that forced him to conform to societal standards.
Now, after years of trial and error, he is a leading entrepreneur and owner of 6 different businesses - and he’s only 23 years old! Meet the shrewd and astute businessman Vishal Jain.
Vishal kickstarted his entrepreneurial expedition with the launch of Sunshy Digital Media Agency. However, before he could lay the foundation of one of the most successful social media marketing platforms, he had to make a life-altering decision that incited criticism and disparagement from everywhere; he had to quit his college.
Vishal experienced - what most people call - a paradigm shift. His unconventional approach towards success was unwelcomed by many but he did not let that falter his confidence. While most people consider acquiring a college degree a mandatory tool to succeed, Vishal considers it to be supplementary and not vital for success.
This peculiar way of approaching his life gave Vishal an ample amount of time to passionately work towards becoming a successful entrepreneur while his peers pulled all-nighters to complete their assignments and quizzes.
Another one of his unorthodox ideologies was to invest his own capital in his business. He spent day and night working at different online freelancing platforms including Fiverr, Upwork, and People Per Hour.
He would apply for all kinds of hourly work like data entry, data research, transcribing, and virtual assistance. Due to his unflinching dedication, his earnings rose from 30 dollars a month to 150k dollars a month in one year. Soon, he had generated revenue that was sufficient to launch his own company.
After noticing an inflated demand for social media marketing and graphic designing services, he founded his own digital media company, Sunshy Digital Media Agency.
With the addition of two more companies that were dedicated to social media: Realstagram and Instagram Specialist, Vishal was thriving as a successful entrepreneur. He later also founded Sunshy Enterprises - a manufacturing company that deals with industrial goods - and Sunshy Jewels - an e-Commerce business where exclusive handcrafted jewelry is sold.
Owning 6 businesses currently, he has additionally authored an ebook called Journey To A Million Dollars as a generous gesture to help others succeed as digital marketers like him.
Vishal Jain is an exemplary model of self-reliance, perseverance, and hard work. He defied the norms but did not fall prey to procrastination. Thus, it is imperative that we instill in ourselves the same persistence and dedication towards making our dreams a reality in order to reap outsized and fulfilling results like him.
