Shakespeare said, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Rohan Mehta belongs to the latter category. This 33 year old, born in Bhavnagar, runs a wealth management company, named ‘Turtle Wealth’ in Surat. From having no aspiration in life, to today, branding himself as ‘over ambitious’ , Rohan has had a rollercoaster ride.
His father is a traditional green merchant, and Rohan was going to follow his footsteps. For just the sake of a degree, he joined BBA, and then on his father’s insistence, joined MBA. While in the course, he took up summer internship work in Ahmedabad, where he had to work as a door to door salesman of mutual funds. This was his entrance into the field of finance.
Rohan got intrigued by stock market, and wanted to invest; but his father refused. His grandfather gave him the money to invest, which he lost. Because of this, he took up a job in his 4th semester with the same company. He later joined Jhaveri security in Surat in 2006. Within a year and half, he shifted to Jainam, as Research and Fund head.
His journey of entrepreneurship began in 2010-11. He left a well paid stable job, to start something of his own. With the support of his wife, Rohan took the risk, and in the beginning he faced a huge setback in the form of financial loss, which fortunately he recovered from. Today, he successfully runs the company, and also has written a book named “212° The complete trader”. He also appears as a guest lecturer at many places, across the globe.
Currently, Rohan is working on improving his software application, for algorithm. He is also working on his second book. Rohan wants to increase people’s wealth, since he believes people should be wealthy, rather than rich. His company organizes seminars every month to spread finance related awareness. Rohan aspires to keep on working in the field of finance, and his ambition for achievement is persistent. His family and spirituality keep him rooted. His success inspires us, to trust the happenings of the situations; for they turn out to be for the best.
