Dev Gadvi is a Passionpreneur who has built his businesses around his passion and helps people do the same through his programs. He is Author of the book 80% Mindset 20% Skills, Life Transformation in 9 days. This book has been well received by people across the globe where he talks about getting out of the middle class mindset and building a millionaire mindset.

Being son of a truck driver he has gone through a lot of financial challenges in his childhood. He struggled to communicate in English as a kid. To him, coming from lower middle class family there was an option to stay on his 9-5 job which he has been doing for 16 long years. He was making decent amount of money. But this comfortable job couldn’t stop him from dreaming big and building life what he calls as SIX Sundays a week life.


Some Questions I ask Dev:

  • Coming from a lower-middle class family, how did you even dared to dream big?
  • How difficult was it to have a side-hustle with a 9-5 job?
  • What is your message to a guy who goes on a 9-5 job and complains about not having time to build a side-hustle.
  • Why do you think it is always 80% mindset and 20% skills in becoming successful?
