22 Year Old Entrepreneur, Javed Khan JKMT went from making pizzas in East London to getting dough in abundance…. and this young millennial self-made millionaire views his success as a blessing that he wants to share.
Self-learning the art of trading whilst at college and working at a pizza chain, Javed has experienced the highs and lows of a risk taking lifestyle which has taken himself out of a hand to mouth existence in Hackney to a dream life globally.
Javed said: “I was desperate to make money so I could help my family and others…” and when the money started to roll in, he stuck to his promise of helping others by allocating a % of his total income every year to those in need.
Drawing from his motivation to build a life for his family, Javed took risks and whilst some of them didn’t pay off, his wise money management led to overall success. When £250 turned into £500, Javed saw the opportunity: “If I can turn a £250 trading account to £500, I can turn a £2500 account to £5000 and a £25,000 account to £50,000. I was a dreamer like that, and so I stuck to it and disciplined myself.”
For the past couple of years, Javed has dedicated to give back a percentage of his earnings each year to the poor in third world countries – he does this by directly cutting out the middleman to ensure the money gets put to good use, Javed said; “I view my success as a blessing that I want to share. My father and his friends fly out to Bangladesh and go around different villages to hand out supplies. I dedicate 4% of my total income to this work – so, for example, when I made £352k in 2017, 4% of that is just above £14,000.”
Javed has made a commitment to buying food for 100 families every year in third world countries, and has offered extra aid during Covid-19.
Javed loves helping others – he bought his parents a new home and put his brother and sister through their chosen academies. He has also just invested in a Care Home, building up his investment portfolio more widely.
