Just a few days back the headlines were buzzing with the news of the engagement between India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani’s son Akash and diamantaire Russell Mehta’s daughter Shloka. Now, it’s his twin sister Isha Ambani who is stealing the spotlight.
Recently, she got engaged with business mogul Ajay Piramal’s son Anand. The families celebrated this happy occasion in a get-together. Here are some of the pictures:
Isha has earned a degree in Psychology and South Asian studies from Yale University. She is a part of boards of directors of Reliance Jio and Reliance Retail.
Anand Piramal is the founder of Piramal Realty, a well-established real estate company. Prior to that, he founded a rural healthcare initiative called Piramal Swasthya which treats around 40,000 patients each day. He has Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and a Masters in Business Administration degree from Harvard Business School.
Today, Anand is considered as one of the most successful youth businessmen in the country. However, his journey as an entrepreneur actually started because of an advice from his would-be father-in-law!
During a conference he shared while fresh out of business school he was confused about the career to choose. That is when, a family friend and country’s richest businessman, Mukesh Ambani came to his rescue. This is what he said to young Anand:
“He told me, ‘Being a consultant is like watching cricket or commentating about cricket, while being an entrepreneur is like playing cricket. You can’t learn how to play cricket by commentating. If you want to do something, be an entrepreneur in the long term and start now’.”
He further shared another piece of advice from this business mogul:
“Achieve your goals by the time you are 30.”
Needless to say, these billion-dollar worth pieces of advice worked wonder for Anand Piramal. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, then this will work for you too.
