Many facets drive a person to become his boss in this world. For entrepreneur Sam Alawneh, he believes that there is a higher purpose than just making money and paying taxes.
His goal was to create a brand that could influence the people around him, and he set to work in doing just that.
“I started working while I was in college and had little money to my name,” Sam said.
By working hard, he saved enough to build a pushcart that sells food to the drinking crowds who were leaving the bars. And he did more than just serve food to the community. Sam grew his dreams from nothing into a multi-million dollar company, making it more special for him.
Three Tips To Success
Although Sam has already attained success in his chosen industry, he knows that the road towards it is not an easy one. That’s why he has two tips that he shares with others so that they, too, can become successful in achieving their dreams.
The first one is to do the work without any shortcuts. This is because life has a great many things to teach entrepreneurs so that they can become better at what it is that they do. More importantly, it makes the journey to success more worthwhile knowing that they put in all the hard work into making it happen.
Another tip that Sam offers is to be honest, upfront, and humble. In any business, it’s important to be truthful to customers. This allows them to create a loyal clientele that could help grow a small business into a thriving company.
But most importantly, being humble is a key value to have as an entrepreneur. Highs and lows come naturally in any business. But when things take a turn for the better, entrepreneurs must remember their roots so that they have the right motivation to keep them going forward and innovating to keep their business thriving.
Lastly, Sam says to take inspiration and learn from the people you meet along the way. All people have differences and they can teach you a thing or two that you didn’t know could help you develop into someone better.
As an entrepreneur, the job entails a lot of responsibility, so stress and burnout are inevitable. For Sam, the way he copes is by helping others to become successful as well.
“The reward is greater than money,” he said.
Sam managed to grow his company from scratch. All this he did by leveraging his passions until he can turn them into profits. But most importantly, he never forgot to help others achieve their dreams the way he did.
