Knowledge is readily available around us. We just have to keep our eyes and minds open to the possibility of learning new things that could help us on our way to success. Luckily, for motivational speaker Majeed Mogharreban, he learned the things he needed to know to grow his business through books and the people around him.
Majeed runs a high six-figure coaching company that teaches holistic doctors how to be better public speakers so that they can attract more patients to their practice.
According to Majeed, two books that changed the way he views life, money, and business are “The 4-Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferris and “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki.
The former taught Majeed how to grow a lifestyle business while the latter taught the motivational speaker about passive income and financial freedom.
Learning From Friends
But the learning process doesn’t stop there for Majeed. He also gained knowledge from the people around him who show that true friendship is when you pull each other up and encourage them to become the best versions of themselves.
“My friend Angela Lauria taught me how to grow a seven or eight-figure business while still being a great parent and great spouse by setting up systems, boundaries, and a world-class team to run the business,” Majeed said.
On the other hand, Majeed’s friend Tuan Nguyen taught him how to build a community and be an extraordinary father while running multiple businesses. He also taught Majeed that the amount of money he makes or has is irrelevant, and instead, the true measure of success is happiness and fulfillment.
How It All Started
Majeed shares that his business started when he found himself asking the question, “How do I get paid to travel?” As a broke 23-year-old who just got let go from his sales job, Majeed decided to become a motivational speaker.
He then started speaking at high schools, colleges, and universities as a paid professional speaker on the topic of entrepreneurship.
At the beginning of his career, Majeed tried to be everything to everyone and used the strategy “I can do that too, only cheaper” so he can have an advantage over his competitors. Unfortunately, this approach didn’t work. Being the cheapest option trying to please everyone is a surefire way to go broke as a solopreneur service provider.
“It wasn’t until I really looked at my strengths, my values, my journey, and my passion that led me to the hyper-specialization of being the world’s only public speaking coach for holistic medicine practitioners. Now I have no competition and my clients choose me because of who I am, not because of my price,” he said.
