Episode 23: From Selling Knives, Flipping Homes, Getting His MBA to Building A Successful Coaching Business: Meet Vikram Deol

The Six Figure Entrepreneur Podcast is super excited to host Vikram Deol

Vikram Deol was born in a traditional Indian home with Indian values. AKA Get good grades, don’t get in trouble, always behave and do the right thing… Luckily for him and you, he was also somewhat of a rebel.

In 1999, Vikram got a taste of his first business. Although he helped his parents run their pizza restaurant in high school, his first business was in 1999 when he got a job working for Vector Marketing selling Cutco knives.

He learned time management, the power of prospecting, learning scripts, learning about the product, and how to run his own business at 17.

At 18, he became Cutco’s youngest branch manager and recruited 47 sales reps who held the highest average production of any rep that summer of 2000.

Here, Vikram knew he loved teaching people how to be successful as much as he loved being successful himself.

Vikram learned a lot from Tony Robbins about happiness, joy, and the meaning of fulfillment to himself.

Vikram’s journeys through life, having owned and operated nine businesses and never understanding why he still felt alone at night, were due to his childhood and how he saw the world.

In this episode of The Six Figure Entrepreneur Podcast, Mayowa Ajisafe, host of The Six Figure Entrepreneur Podcast, sits down virtually with Vikram to share the stories of his amazing entrepreneurial journey.

He talked about how he got started as an entrepreneur, the lessons he picked up along his entrepreneurial journey, what his business is like today, one book he read that has had more impact on his business, and many other amazing discoveries about him and his business.

A Word From Our Sponsor: The Book Cot

A book is the #1 way to establish your credibility, authority, and expertise (next to being featured on Oprah..even then, a book will dramatically increase your chances!)

The #1 way to differentiate yourself (next to being featured on reality TV) is to write a book and use that to establish your presence in the market, exhibit your dominance and demonstrate your authority.

At The Book Cot, we’re committed to helping you amplify your reach, build your credibility online, become an instant authority and get more leads for your business with a published book.

We’re a professional publishing agency that makes the process of writing and publishing a book an easy walk for busy entrepreneurs who know the power of a published book, want to write and publish one but are too busy having fun running their businesses.

Since 2018, our proven system has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs, thought leaders, coaches, consultants, and experts become instant authority while leveraging their published books to get speaking gigs, invited to speak at conferences and guests on top podcasts.

What do you need to write and publish your best business card – a book with your name?

When you use our proven system, all you need is an idea, your expertise, and the end goal you want from having a published book.

We handle the content, and production processes like writing, editing, proofreading, cover design, publishing, and distribution – you need to block off some hours of your time for a week to “speak” your book. Then we handle the rest of the process.

And we don’t stop at that!

We also give you a proven blueprint you can copy to use your book to get more visibility, get on podcasts as a guest to share your expertise, and get more leads and paying clients for your business.

We focus on ensuring you have a direct path to ROI, which is the most important component. Plus, our entire book production system takes any heavy lifting of writing, preparing, and publishing a book off your plate.

We have also made business networking and becoming a published author work together in one single way.


For busy and successful entrepreneurs who might not be ready to take on a solo book project, we also have many multi-author book projects they can join as co-author for a fraction of the time and financial resources it will take to write and publish a solo book.

We have created a system for like-minded experts, thought leaders, coaches, and consultants to share their stories and expertise in one book.

The relationships you form through these multi-author book projects on their own are worth more than their weight in gold.

You can become an instant authority in your field or niche while connecting with 10 to 20 amazing entrepreneurs like you with whom you share the same passion and getting exposure to the audience they have built for years.

You can find details of our ongoing multi-book project you can join here.
