This July, I made a trip to Zambia in Africa. I landed in this country with lot of curiosity and lucid expressions on my face. The airport welcomed with a large and beautiful hoarding saying ‘Welcome to the best country in Africa.’ I was happy to be in the best country of a continent which is a terrain for 54 countries.
Founder of Airtel – Mr Sunil Bharti Mittal has been one of my role models for almost a dozen years.
Mr Mittal decided to take the road travelled less in very young age. He borrowed $400 to start business - a very humble beginning of the journey for becoming a genius. Today, he heads a truly international conglomerate which not only makes revenue in billions but touches hearts of millions of people on the globe. Mr Mittal has become an inspiration for budding entrepreneurs today. After seeing so many happy customers (they call it so many smiles) across the world; I feel proud of Mr Mittal.
Reading and reflecting on the success & leadership of this tycoon offers following key learning to any entrepreneur who aspires to reach higher:
· Have a vision and deep faith in yourself; these will take you a long way.
