  1. Assuming that I've a business idea related to coding field which can solve a real life problem but I'm from mechanical side. But yes I'm good at business. What if I hire a team of coders to work with me? Or should I start learning coding language?
    (Given, money issues are there for hiring teammates).

    Looking forward for reply.

  2. I'm at college and I started selling Stickers at Etsy last year. It was the best decision ever!!! I barely have any social life at the moment but it's ok. Would rather do this than party.

  3. This guy was very much like me now. Born in a post-communist country, moved to the US with 17 finished high school here, and planning to start a company in the US. Now I'm 18 and starting college here in a few months, I really hope it'll work out for me, as well as it did for him.

  4. Tq sir.. it's really inspiring and enlightening our thoughts…it helped me to some extent to start my own business… actually I am happy.. it's really growing good…yours ADITYA

  5. Thank you for this, so many helpful tips!
    Actually if you're looking to start your own business in school, recently I EXCLUSIVELY interviewed a CEO of a $30+MILLION Tech Company on my channel. He really goes in depth on how to START your own business (through progressive validation) and start freeing yourself from financial stress. Come check it out, I'm sure you'll get a lot of value if you're serious about entrepreneurship!
    No scam just a YouTube video hahah 😉

  6. Very refreshing to hear this. Too many people advise you to work at a corporation before starting a business. The problem is it doesn't equip you for working on a startup as you dont learn a variety of skills and the growth tends to be very slow.

    If you want to start a business follow this advice and get stuck in. Or if you want more experience first, go and work for a startup.
