There was no great childhood for Vinod Gupta, and he didn’t have a great deal of support in building a future for himself, but that was not an obstacle that could stop him.

Within a couple more years, Vinod earned his business administration degree. This education-built Vinod GUpta’s foundation and critical thinking skills, which is what allowed Vinod to be noticed right away after entering the corporate ladder. Although he started out small like everyone else, he was a go-getter and didn’t take his time finding idea and services that were sorely missing from his industry. Vinod discovered he had a talent for seeing what wasn’t there, so he brought it to his industry.
Vinod had an initial investment of around 100 dollars and he remarkably turned it into millions with a successful company behind him. As far as Vinod is concerned, he loves his work and will never give it up until the day he dies.
