While Many Businesses Went Under in 2020, Shabaz Ahmed Was Prepared to Grow Exponentially Due To Years of Work From Home

COVID-19 is definitely changing many aspects of our lives economically, politically, and socially, as well as in the workplace. Although working from home may have been thought of as unusual before, it has become the reality today because of the pandemic.

But for Shabaz Ahmed, working from home has been the way to go for a long time. He is 25 years young and has been involved in home-based business for 6 years now. Before that, he was a high school dropout.

“At the very start of being involved in home based business I did not have any success. I was on government benefits and I had no business background. I truly believe making money from home is the best way to live a great life which gives you time and money combined.” Shabaz shares.

Currently, Shabaz is a coach, teacher and public speaker with over 5 years of experience building a personal brand and business. He is also one of the youngest European six-figure earners with International Markets Live.

When I turned 21, I found a mentor who showed me what I needed to do to build a successful business. I became a coach and teacher and started building the business. It was not an easy job to do but one thing I know is that what is worthwhile in life will not be easy so I decided to commit myself and dedicate 5 years of my life to my business.” Shabaz explains.

As a public speaker, Shabaz tries to help as many people as possible reach their personal goals. This has been a determining factor that has allowed him to change his life.

“I think income is based on the value you have created in the market. So I started using my voice and did my best to help as many people as possible reach their goals. As soon as I had a number of success stories in my organization my life started to change.” Shabaz says.

Shabaz was motivated to build his own business because he wanted to be financially free. Once there is nothing to worry about personally, it is easier to help others. Moreover, by working from home, Shabaz has a lot more control over his time, which means he can be with his family more.

“I got involved because I wanted my family and my future family to live their best life and I think I deserve more than to spend the rest of my life working at a job. I want to see my future children grow up and travel the world with them. Most men die at 25 years old but they’re not buried until they’re 70.There is no way i’m going to lose myself and give up on my dreams.”

Success is a word that has many meanings. For some it is about having a lot of money, for others it is about being famous or having a lot of material goods. But for Shabaz, it is about helping improve other people’s lives, starting with his parents.

“My biggest achievement so far was to be able to help my parents retire. They worked their whole lives to put food on the table and even went through depression. As soon as I gave them the life they deserved, I really felt that I had succeeded. All the materialistic things like cars, watches, and clothes are good and elegant, but the best feeling is when you are changing people’s lives and I really believe that is the source of happiness.” Shabaz adds.

While others look forward to the end of 2020, which proved to be a difficult year due to many unexpected factors such as the coronavirus pandemic that has affected millions of people, Shabaz believes the year has been positive for him. 

“The honest truth is I was not affected by COVID at all. In fact, my income increased by 420% on a monthly basis. This is because I already had a home-based business. Nowadays, a lot of millionaires have been created because of COVID.” Shabaz explains.

People are looking for ways to make money from home because they cannot go out to work or they might be scared to leave their house. People are now open minded to start their own home based business. In this sense, Shabaz already had an advantage when 2020 hit. 

“A lot of people are rushing to ‘cancel’ 2020. I truly believe this is actually the most important time to chase goals!” Shabaz states.

For Shabaz, this is the time to continue growing. He has more than 5,000 members in his organization and his goal is to help as many people as possible financially, spiritually and mentally.

“My goal is to impact and create many success stories and really empower people. You can’t take money to the grave but it’s all about how many people are turning up when you’re getting buried 6 feet down and based on how many people come are the amount of lives you’ve impacted.” Shabaz says.
