Popularly known as ‘MBA Chaiwala’, Prafull Billore is a living example of how dedication and hard work can help you achieve success in whatever you want to do. The entrepreneur recently offered life-changing advice to young twenty-somethings in a long thread on Twitter. Billore had previously appeared for the MBA entry – CAT, but failed to clear it. Later, he started his own business by opening a tea stall outside IIM Ahmedabad and now he has more than 22 outlets.
In a series of tweets, Billore says he would focus more on learning skills rather than collecting degrees. He wrote, “The era ruled by degrees is over. Companies hire people based on their skills. Discover the most relevant skill and master it.” He goes on to talk about “making money for your own livelihood,” which he says can help prepare for the future.

In his next point, he discussed the importance of creating a monthly budget. He explains, “The 1920s is the best time to build a good financial habit,” adding that “during this time, a monthly budget should be established and you can stick to it.” While making another point, the trader advised to divide the money into 3 parts. The first is used for bills and other really necessary things, the second for ‘will’ and the third for ‘invest’.
Billore added: “One of the worst things you can do when you’re 20 is compare your life to others and feel bad about yourself. The resources, obstacles, situations, everything is different for you and for them,” he said adding that you should enjoy every now and then and celebrate the small victories.
