Entrepreneur Sneh Binny, who is Owner and Founder of Binny’s Brigade, a Tennis Premier League Team, says that he started to earn money when he was in school. However, he adds that only when he started his business, did he understand the true value that money held.
“When I was in 6th grade, I started making money by creating homemade magic tricks and selling them to my friends. They used their pocket money to buy my tricks, and that’s how I earned my pocket money,” he says.
He adds, “I began to understand the value of money when I started my own business. It was when I had to manage my finances, and expenses and make a critical financial decision for my company that I truly appreciated how every single rupee I spent could impact the success and sustainability of my business. This realization made me more conscious of the importance of money in the business world.”
For him, money became a way to achieve his dreams. “Becoming financially independent made me realise the effort and sacrifices they have made to provide for our family and my upbringing. Also, I have learned the importance of managing money wisely and using it to achieve my goals. The money I discovered is not just a currency, but a tool to achieve goals and secure a better future, deepening my respect for the role it plays in our lives,” he says.
