Being a pioneer in the industry and starting from ground up with no help from anyone, Vishal sure has learnt a lot through the process and has had invaluable experiences and he does his part by sharing his learnings and experiences to help other people through media interviews, his personal blogs as well as on his social media accounts.

He is also a member of Forbes Agency Council where his advice on digital marketing is published frequently. Here are some of his life related most impactful advices-

To anyone who wishes to start their own business someday or work for themselves but don’t have the resources to start, Vishal’s ultimate advice is “You don’t need a lot of money to start a business, you need skills and the era we live in where invaluable content is available everywhere to learn from, You just need the drive and willingness to put in the work, acquire the skills and get work done.”

He says, “I started with no money and no skills, all i had was the hunger to make it on my own, a crazy work ethic to support my ambitions and a winner’s mindset to keep going until i get there”.

Vishal believes that the only reason he was able to achieve what he wanted was his determination.

“I know many people around me who have big dreams, but they are not willing to work for those dreams.

They think someone is going to hand them everything on a silver platter - and that is never going to happen.

If you want something, you need to work for it.

Don’t just sit around and expect miracles to happen,” says Vishal.

Vishal Jain has one philosophy; know what you want and take the right steps to achieve it. For instance, if you really do not need to go to college to achieve your goals or be who you want to be, you do not have to go to college. He says it’ll simply be a waste of time.

Perhaps the most important advice Vishal has for every youngster is to use your money wisely.

Although it sounds cliché, it is one of the most significant factors that determine the success or failure of any person. He says, “In the beginning, it might be a bit difficult to restrain yourself from spending excessively. When you have money, you feel like spending all of it firstly on fulfilling responsibilities and then on luxuries. However, you must not do the latter. Always keep your goals in your mind”. Vishal also has a 5% spending rule but you’ll need to be making good money to be able to achieve that. And no, your salary will most likely not cut it. You need to be in business. Vishal advises you take only 5% of your profit and reinvest the other 95% as a quick and reliable way to grow your finances.

Surely, Vishal’s story serves as an inspiration for everyone out there who is feeling lost or having a midlife crisis.

He has certainly proved that your grades and qualifications do not define you.

In the end, they do not even matter; what matters is whether you utilized your limited time on Earth in achieving your goals, or wasted it by waiting for someone to do that for you.
