June 29: There are very few young people who follow their dreams and find their passion at an early age. As a 23-year-old, Dr. Aravind Lakshminarayanan received a world record and was awarded the “World’s Youngest Corporate CEO Award” at an age when most adults are still confused about what they want to do with their lives. His super inspirational journey from a talented yoga enthusiast to the world’s youngest corporate CEO for multiple companies is beyond motivational.
Dr. Aravind hails from Komarapalayam, Namakkal Dt, Tamilnadu, India. Since a very young age he has been fond of yoga. Better known by the stage name, Yoga Aravind, among his followers, the young man has bagged several certifications and 100+ gold medals in state, national, and international competitions including 3 world records in the category.
With all the knowledge and skills gathered by him, Dr. Aravind laid the foundation of his business and entrepreneurial ventures from early on.

Establishing multiple corporate companies at such an early age is certainly one of Dr. Aravind’s biggest achievements. Although most people in the corporate industry did not pay heed to him due to his age and experience, he was determined to achieve his goals. In fact, the journey for him has not been a bed of roses.
Talking about his early days, Yoga Aravind shares, “People always felt I would not make it. Many of my clients advised me to rethink my decisions relevant to corporate affairs. And honestly, I never felt the same way but only motivated to walk one step ahead.”
From hiring people to finding appropriate marketing tactics to grow his corporate group of companies, Aravind learned from life lessons such as payment failures and trust betrayals.
