Mistakes Ankur Warikoo made with money

1)Associating money with negativity and having the mindset that money is the root of all problems.

4)Investing in illiquid assets like start-ups and real estate, and rarely in liquid assets such as stocks and gold so when tough times happened He had a lot of paper wealth but no cash.
