About Our Guest Vinney Chopra
When Vinod Chopra came to the United States from India more than 40 years ago, he had only $7 in his pockets. But he knew without a doubt that the opportunities offered by this country were within his reach. He knew this because he had a vision for his life plus the commitment to learn, work hard, and sacrifice to achieve those goals. With a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, he entered George Washington University for an MBA in marketing and advertising. He sold Bibles and educational books door-to-door to support his studies. He excelled both in the classroom and outside because of his work ethic and overwhelmingly positive attitude.
There’s a reason Vinney’s nickname is “Mr. Smiles,” which is evident even after hearing his demeanor! He has always believed in individuals’ ability to shape the world around them through positive thought and selfless actions. He has been a passionate motivational speaker and teacher for over three decades. After getting a taste of sales and marketing while pursuing his MBA, Vinney decided to leave engineering and become a motivational speaker and fundraiser. He worked tirelessly to build a clientele that would work with him annually to raise the funds to meet their goals and dreams.
