Interview with Mihir Agni Khadri (@makizbak)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

Started as longboarder and as my interests switch I got into gaming. As I grew up and got more into gaming I brought IlluZion with us and that’s how IlluZion Gaming came to be. We eventually turned into a business after starting to make a little money and now we are the biggest FGC org in the USA.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Planning and Travelling with my players at the age of 19. I like to see to myself as a young kid with a dream and it’s becoming my reality. I still think it’s crazy that I make all the plans book all the Airbnbs pay out salaries and such. I love it so much I really want this to be my full-time job as it is part-time for me and I am in school.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Take your time, be patient, and find your own path.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

I would like to thank my parents for believing in me and guiding me in the right direction. My parents have always supported me and when things get rough they let me go through it first and they show me after what I need to learn to I don’t make the same mistake.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

With our streetwear, we take 10% of the profits and donate it to the Breast Cancer Charity in which all of us in IlluZion can relate to as a relative or family has gone through cancer and more specifically cancer.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

KEEP GRINDING, if you want to get where you want to be YOU HAVE TO GRIND AND PUT IN THE WORK. I have been at Iluzion for 7-8 years and I’ve been grinding.
