Aqeeb Farooq has been deeply involved in the Dropshipping scene for over a year now, his journey from selling on Ebay to leading his own mentoring service, Brickwood Mentoring, has afforded him some unique insights into online services.
Aqeeb Farooq an 18-year-old entrepreneur from Leeds. He is the Founder/CEO of Brickwood Mentoring ( an online mentoring service for Dropshipping ), but prior to this, he used to try out different ways to make money online which has led him to set up his own online business.
How exactly did his upbringing prepare him to become an entrepreneur? Competitiveness, self-awareness and independence. He just knows that for some reason, everything he went through pushed him to want to succeed more than anything in the world. Because He has seen the bottom of what life has to offer through hard work. He sleeps well at night knowing that whatever the world of entrepreneurship throws at him, He’ll be ready and able to conquer it.
“Our reputation precedes us. We are based in the United Kingdom which is a multi-cultural population,” Aqeeb details. “My journey isn’t exactly about Aqeeb Farooq or Brickwood Mentoring, but the millions of people who have at some point seemed unconscious about the next step to take. The journey might be tedious, but it could have a beautiful ending either way. I am focused on making that a reality for as many people as possible.”
The biggest challenge for him as he always had a fear of what the people think about him. He would spend time trying to decode their thoughts and that’s what demotivated him at times. He learned his lessons and understood that people will always have opinions about you. People will always judge a book by its cover. The point is whom to take seriously?
He is also planning to mark his presence to invest in other ventures in the near future. He has also been a pioneer in the social media growth with an inclination towards helping and supporting others financially. Holding multiple successes, he holds numerous cards to generate and grow income, and guide others towards the same.
He understood that if you really want something in life, go after it and slay it in style. Competition should be healthy and insecurity should never overpower the path to success. Be aggressive, and dominate- this is the best way to face life in the 21st century. You’ll be rewarded with financial freedom, emotional stability and work-life balance. He said, “ I’ve had some rough times in the last few years, things come up in your life when you never expect it to, but doesn’t mean you stop doing what you do and let it affect you because you have to keep strong and carry on achieving what you want.”
We asked Aqeeb 3 questions about his journey which he answered, here’s what he said;
1) What inspires you to keep carrying on?
Aqeeb: For me it’s about seeing people happy with achieving what they want, such as the goals they have set. I’ve helped hundreds of people achieve a second income from their phone, that’s what keeps me going. Nearly everyone doubted me from the start, but I kept on going and honestly I don’t regret anything.
2) Where do you see yourself and your product in a couple of years? What’s your dream?
Aqeeb: We have a development plan; hopefully we will fulfil it. The industry in which Brickwood Mentoring is in is changing very quickly, so it’s hard to say how much we will fulfil our plans and where exactly we will be in a few years. However, I see myself having an amazing team running the whole operation while I start to work on other ventures. Right now, I run my business on my own. I’m looking to expand to a team in a couple of months. It would be ideal to have a group of talented individuals, but one inc
3) How have you been able to grow your business?
Aqeeb: Understand your audience, engage with your audience and be consistent. The first thing you need to identify is who your target audience is. Profiling your audience provides you with the in-depth knowledge you need in order to attract a larger following. One of the biggest mistakes in people starting their online business, is they don’t focus on promoting and introducing what they offer to their followers, rather they promote/create the wrong content that their audience don’t really care about.
