Profile of Gurbaksh Chahal

Gurbaksh Chahal’s story is one of the most inspirational stories I have ever heard in terms of an entrepreneur success story. He built and sold his first company for $40 Million at age 18, then sold his second company for $300 Million. He is 4 years younger than me, born in 1982!

After hearing his story and watching the video below, I have been so motivated and energized to embrace the unbelievable opportunity all of us have to accomplish whatever we want to accomplish in our lives!

Here is a video of Gurbaksh on Oprah:

    Crazzzzzzy story. Very motivating to see that level of success at such a young age.

    I am surprised I had never heard of this guy – especially with the Oprah co-sign.

      Me too actually. Especially considering the industry he came from. I was shocked there were not more people talking about him. Great inspiration when you need a kick in the pants!

    This video was a flash back for me. I use to be a personal driver for a man named Ajay Virmani. He is from India and has a very similar story. Very humble beginings, and now he is ridiculously rich. He owns a airline and Bollywood production company. Check him out on google.

    My dream is to have a balance between work and the rest of life. I do not believe that working for someone else allows the flexibility to customize your lifestyle to the extent that I envision. That is my motivation for becoming an entrepreneur and keeping me on the path for self-sufficiency.

      Awesome! Same here Debra. I have lots of motivation to continue growing my business because I truly value the freedom that is only possible as an entrepreneur.

    This is great story to us all to show what is possible.
    I find it amazing that a young person can create such incredible wealth. This raises another question does age have any thing to with how sucessful you become or is it just the instincts of a person no matter what age they are? I liken this feat to 2 young individuals that recently achieved amazing feats one a young girl from Australia Jesisca Watson at the age of 16 circumnavigated the world in a small Yacht and also a 13 year old American boy Jose Romero who conquered Everest with his father and step mother both feats inspirational.
    When the media interviewed Jessica and asked her what she thought of her achievement she said she didnt think it was any thing special she just had a dream and went after it! Wow I wish we could all look at life so simply. We are all capable of amazing things its just that some of us are fearful of living the dream.
