The Essentiality of Learning And Skill Development

Van Tibolli learned from a very young age that life was tough. From farming and construction to selling eggs, chicken, ice-cream and real estate, the Founder and CEO of GKhair overcame obstacle after obstacle remaining steadfast and determined. Resolute to make it through, his persistent nature saw him overcome mountains with nothing but his sheer will. As young as Van can remember, he worked to help the family and at the time, even with a lot of effort, the results were few and far.

A true visionary spirit instilled in Van entrepreneur ideals from childhood. This guided him to demand more from life then what he had observed from his upbringing. Van started school at the age of 7 and worked full time from the age of thirteen. He attended school at night. He never had the opportunity to attend secondary school or university. Instead, he moved to London for more work opportunity and to learn English on his own at the age of 20. His learning came mostly from experiences through trial and error.

Even today, much later in life after many years of working in different industries and ultimately developing his own brand, Van still looks to self-education when he wants to learn new skills. Education is a necessity to better yourself. Even if the traditional methods are not available for you, the decision to learn and utilize your time wisely will reap a certain payoff.

All his life, he made it a point to continuously learn and inform himself. Many find it hard to believe that this natural-born entrepreneur would have been able to develop a business. And, that his brand has made a name around the world in the salon professional industry.
