Zeeshan Shaikh is the son of a taxi driver & was born on 1 May 1994. His other real name is Kudbuddin Shaikh and he belongs to a very poor middle-class family. And he had faced many problems in his life related to money. But his father always wanted him to work hard towards his study and always invested in his studies. From childhood, he lives in Mumbai, & used to live in a very small chawl where the ceiling of his house was very low and he feel so shameful of his home.
So he had decided in his childhood only that he wanted to buy a home in Mumbai, and he also knows that it is not easy to buy a house in Mumbai of the city, he really has to work hard for that. From starting he was an average student in studies, he never topped in his school or college. He completed his school at St. joseph high school Kurla, Mumbai.
Why He Didn’t Get Admission Directly After 12th In Engineering?
And during 12th he was not serious about his studies so got very fewer marks and don’t get admission to an engineering college. Then he did a diploma of 2 years for getting admission to an engineering college & after 2 years he got admission to Rizvi College of Engineering, Mumbai. When he was in college he loves to participate in dance programs. During his 3rd year of college, he realized that there is very little chance of getting a job and also he was not interested in doing engineering & no passion he has for that.
The only reason he was doing engineering is the pressure of his parents, for the money they have invested in him and the things he had listened from the society that engineers have a lot of jobs & money. Also, his seniors told him that even if they are not getting jobs after getting very good marks. Then he just thinks about himself who is average in his studies how will he get a job.
How Engineering Turned Youtuber
Afterward, Zeeshan just googled on youtube ” how to be successful”. He started watching videos on how a person can be successful in his life. He is a person who doesn’t like to be bounded he simply wanted freedom and doesn’t want to work under anyone. So, he thinks that this can only happen if do his own business and just doesn’t do the job.
From watching the video regularly he got a very common habit of all the richer people or businessmen who read books. He came to know the reason behind reading books is books have all the answers that we are finding here and there we only have to read books. That time his question was “How a poor man can do business”? The answer he got from the books only.

In one of the interview he told that ” There are so many books who tells us how we can do business with very less money or without money”, he also mentioned the name of such kinds of books i.e Rework, The Lean Startup, or the $100 Startup.
At his point in time, he was inspired by one of the videos where 3 books were recommended i.e Rich Dad Poor Dad, The Richest Man in Babylon, and What I Don’t Learn at School But Wish I Had. The book first he read was Rich Dad Poor Dad. He said that we he read the book he just lost ground under his feet.
Shaikh mentioned that in the book he read about assets and liabilities in the book and the author told him that make more and more assets in life. And the larger the number of assets in your life the richer you will be.
The Turning Phase of His Life?
This was the turning point of his life. The book helped him to select the right path for his life. After reading a book he said, he came to know so many people have the wrong mentality because of which they are not able to go forward in their life, he mentioned that everything is possible which we wanted to do & all the answers are already written by the people in the books.
Then he started reading books & from books he realized that if we want to be successful in our life that adds more and more value to other life. The perfect business is which add value to others’ life, save time, saves money, and make life easier for others. If you do such kind of business then your business will be hit.
