From $7 Network Marketer to Successful Serial Entrepreneur

This episode’s guest Nazir Al-Mujaahid is an under 40 year old serial entrepreneur and father of 8.75 children. He became interested in entrepreneurship as a teen when when his uncle (who owns watermelon stands),  told him that he could buy 5 Rolls Royces cash if he wanted to, despite not learning to read or write until he was in his 30s.  Naturally this peaked Nazir’s interest and he went on to pursue entrepreneurship, first through network marketing. The mistakes Nazir made, in growing his now ultra successful online businesses, are typical to a lot of hungry and driven entrepreneurs.  We also discuss “sales” and the apprehension to selling which paralyzes many from taking action.  Listen to Nazir’s advice on how he runs a successful business and manages a large growing family.
