From a young age, Lavish was passionate about the trading, share markets and crypto space. As his expertise in online money markets grew over time, so did his assurance in them; this prompted him to actively trade commodities. This inspired him to find investment options with high returns for individual investors – thus he started QFX Markets in 2021 after assembling an expansive range of solutions.
Lavish considers risk-taking ability as a number one quality that somebody needs to be an entrepreneur. Most of the people in the world, they all want to be entrepreneurs and start their own business, but only less than 0.1% end up being an entrepreneurs. The reason behind that most of them cannot take risk.
Integrity and excellence are the two values that are the most important for Swapnil. He believes anything one does as a business leader, as an entrepreneur; ﬁrst of all, one has got to be a person of high integrity. “You’ve got to have the right intention. There might be different ways to achieve what you’re trying to achieve, but your intentions need to be pure,” says Lavish. He further adds “Your actions may be aggressive or how you go about doing it might be more risky or somebody else might not do the way I’m going to try and get things done. But if my intentions are clean, if my intentions are to returning proﬁt or to improve people’s lives, however I go about conducting my business, it takes a second step.” After integrity, excellence is second most essential value that every business leaders should possess. Lavish asserts “whatever you do, you’ve had to give your best shot. You cannot take mediocracy or you cannot be an average entrepreneur. You got to have the passion for excellence in anything you do in life. And if you have that, then you’ll be a very successful entrepreneur.”
“The biggest and the best advice I can give anybody is don’t be afraid of taking risks. If you’re passionate about certain things, don’t think about that homerun idea or the next Apple or next Facebook. Find something you’re passionate about and just do it better than somebody is doing it today. And don’t be afraid to take risks,” says Lavish on advising emerging business leaders. He further says “The worst case if you fail you can always go back and get job. So my advice is just go out, take risks, live your life so that you don’t have to look back and regret later that I wish I did it when had the opportunity to do something.”
Lavish claims, “If you don’t push your people, then that leader is not ﬁrm enough. As a leader to get successful, you have to demand hustle, a lot of hard work. And then at the end of the time, you have to protect your employees. You have to protect your stakeholders. In my opinion, that’s a sign of a great leader.”
