Mr Stickler shared that a lot of work and effort had to be put into becoming a Leica Ambassador. He said that coming from the field of Biology, he lacked the skills required to run a business and become a self-sustaining photographer.

“Education is a very important aspect irrespective of any field, and focus,” he stated.

Mr Stickler fondly recalled how his best friend, Mr Christoph Brodowicz, a Global MBA alumnus of SP Jain School of Global Management, passed on his learnings at SP Jain to him, which has been vital for him in his business. Mr Brodowicz helped Mr Stickler with business advice and tips that he picked up at SP Jain, recommended him mentoring books to read and, overall, helped him establish his business.
