Vivek Raman Interview
What does being a successful entrepreneur mean to you?
An Entrepreneur is, by definition, a person who organizes and operates business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks to do so. The reason to take on greater than average risk is for something bigger than just income from a job or meeting basic needs. Whether your goal is to have financial freedom, leave a legacy, or make the world a better place, it is the entrepreneur who can achieve these lofty goals.
If you could spend a day hanging out with people from history and current for advice, who would they be, and what would you ask them?
So many, but I would love to hang out with the guys who built the monster empires like Alexander. I want to know what kept these guys going for more when they had so much and what were their biggest challenges.
Then there are the wealthy magnates like John D. Rockefeller.
He is a guy who went from raising turkeys and selling potatoes to his company refining ninety percent of the USA’s oil. He is a man who went from nothing to this massive wealth and having this ongoing legacy. It’s pretty damn interesting.
What are some of your aims for the next ten years?
My goal is to build a billion-dollar business that will shake up the entire industry. The goal is to provide ordinary people access to real estate deals for the first time. Second, I want my people, all my partners , to earn huge money and have great freedom.
Third, I want to enter 190 countries through my business. Fourth, I want to travel the world with my wife and kids to meet and make friends with people from EVERY country on this planet. I want to spend as much time as I can with my wife and kids traveling the world.
I also want to sponsor education for kids. I won’t be remembered because of the money I made but, hopefully, how many people I help. I am working on how I’ll be remembered in 2100.
What are important skills to become a successful business owner?
People wait for a long time to make a decision. Business is all about fast decision-making. Second, surround yourself with successful people. Millionaires can make you a millionaire.And they might not have achieved the success you desire. That limits your decision. So I suggest not to take advice from your current environment.
