Siddharth Sheth has a vivid recollection of the moment he left India and arrived in Australia. “I left home for the airport at 5 pm. It was a sad moment for me as I was leaving my country, parents, colleagues, pals, wife and kids. But on the other hand, it was the beginning of my new life in Australia—31 December 2008.”
Siddharth started life in Australia as a door-to-door salesman. “I walked miles to save money, didn’t cut my hair for three months to save a few dollars.” He still keeps the pay slip of his first salary of $346.
In 2011, he walked into Le Mans Toyota (Footscray) to buy a car for his wife at and that’s when everything changed. “While negotiating a deal, I was offered a job. Ten months later, I was employee of the month.”
Since 2012, he has been employee of the year. That year he also received the Member Award from Toyota Motors Corporation Australia, in 2013 the Gold Leader Award, in 2014, the National Achiever award from Toyota Motors Corporation Australia, then in 2015, the Le Mans Toyota’s prestigious National Achiever Award for Sales at a ceremony in Queenstown, New Zealand.
“You are never too old to set another goal. Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”
