What a party it was last week! We played 18 holes at the challenging and beautiful golf course The International for the Charlie Brave Heart foundation, and I was in the same flight as my biggest inspiration: Rattan Chadah, A.K.A. Mr. MEXX. He's not only a driven entrepreneur, but also very good company and a huge motivator for me!
Thirty years ago, I sat at his desk. At that time, I traded in suede and leather from India and wanted to do business with this fashion king. But Rattan knew better than anyone where the best deals were, since India is his birthplace.
In the past 30 years, he has expanded his empire and is the founder of the hotel chain Citizen M and the owner of two top golf courses in the south of France, including Royal Mougins. The store there was my first customer in France. Par69 has been such a great success there that it is now sold in the pro shops of no less than 30 of the most beautiful golf courses in France. And Rattan, he's super enthusiastic. How great is it to receive compliments from your inspiration!
