If you’re regular on YouTube these days, then you’ll see one guy popping up every now and then giving you financial advice with his witty, charming 60 seconds shorts. And it always ends like, wait for it, follow my man, Finance with Sharan. You know whom I’m talking about.
Building the Brand Finance with Sharan: With the upload of each video, Sharan started seeing more and more people liking his content. It’s not every day you see someone as young as Sharan providing entertainment value wrapped up in financial advice. So, eventually, this Finance with Sharan has become a brand and is doing pretty well for itself.
Sharan Hegde is the man behind the brand Finance with Sharan. He had a very normal childhood, like most of us have. But the concept of money was put very well into his system from the very early of his childhood. You’ll see a lot of kids who are spoiled with money. Parents literally buy them anything they want because parents want to show that they care about their children. But it doesn’t always take a positive effect.
Once you get everything in life without struggle, you don’t value the money. Sharan Hegde had a budget threshold of 100 rupees. His dad used to take him to a toy store, but he couldn’t buy anything that was worth more than 100 rupees. So Sharan started valuing money very early stage of his life.
Sharan was quite brilliant in his classes. He used to think that knowledge could make someone as rich as he wanted. Money became a motivator for him, and he started topping classes.
Sharan always wanted to be rich. By this time, we all know it.
During childhood Sharan used to search on Google for “who’s the richest man in the world,” and obviously, Bill Gates would pop up. And Sharan used to think to himself that only 50 billion $ was needed to surpass Bill Gates. How innocent he was.
Sharan studied mechanical engineering, and from that, he was quick to realize that he was more interested in finance rather than mechanical engineering. He was part of a club that used to build Formula 1 concept cars, and he was in charge of the engine. Later he became the CFO and handled finance and realized it’s actually financing that is his cup of tea, not mechanical engineering.
How Sharan Got Started
So, Sharan used to save money all the time. Maybe his parents gave him some money, he didn’t spend the entire thing, saved some of it also. By the time he was a 3rd-year student, he had 50k/60k rupees saved up in his arsenal. He wanted to grow the money as he wanted to be the richest man in the world. That’s when he started doing his research on personal finance, and everything seemed so fascinating to him. He was enjoying the content.
At the same time, he was thinking about creating his own unique content as well. He first used to make long-form content but later switched to short-form content like Instagram Reels and YouTube Shorts. He makes his videos in such a way that it’s both entertaining and to watch and valuable.
