Vikram Deol was born in a traditional Indian home with Indian values. AKA Get good grades, don't get in trouble, always behave and do the right thing... Luckily for him and you, he was also somewhat of a rebel.
Although, he was a good boy, most of the time, his drive to succeed and earn got him started on his entrepreneurial path much earlier in life than his cohort.
As a young boy and teen, he would find odd jobs to do, he would wash cars at family gatherings from 6am -12 and earn 100's of dollars. He taught himself how to shampoo, to wax, to detail and more to earn more money.
He learned to garden to make money.
He watched up to 4 young kids at once (not sure he was ready) to make extra money.
He didn't love money as much as he loved creating with his mind and hands, earning and feeling like he was helping.
He recalls a story where his aunt took her red mustang in to sell. She was offered 8K. After, Vikram detailed the car, washed, waxed, shampooed the carpet, cleaned the engine etc she was offered $4,000 more the next day.
Vikram learned by adding value, you can make a lot of money, that wash earned him a few $100 dollars vs his normal 80, because it got his aunt more $$!
