As a child, he dedicated a lot of time to coding. Their father bought the first coding book at the age of eight. “ I would spend all of my short breaks, lunch breaks, several hours after school every day. My dad would buy me tons of programming books, and I would go through them one after another. I went through more than 25, 30 different books to learn programming and GW-BASIC, Visual Basic, and CC++ on MS-DOS back in the day.
The billionaire entrepreneur says his mantra for success was a quote which his father often used to say, ‘You can achieve anything you set your mind to’. Turakhia says this mantra ringed in his ears all the time steering his journey towards success.
