Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states and statistics have shown that over a quarter of the United States has tried CBD at least once, and one out of seven of those people say that they use it daily. CBD is dispensed in many forms including pills, vapes, edibles, drops, creams, lotions, and much more. CBD can be used for stress, anxiety, general wellness, joint pain, and sleep. Faiz Warsani is a pioneer in the CBD industry for sleep purposes with his company Sweet Dreams.
Faiz Warsani is a 19-year-old entrepreneur from Chicago, and I had the pleasure of interviewing him regarding his success. Warsani began his career with a clothing company called Paradise Avenue. In 2015, he discovered Shopify drop-shipping, which is a discovery that would change his life. After a few months of steadily growing income, Warsani was able to generate a five-figure a day revenue at the young age of 16.
Warsani convinced his parents and teachers to allow him to graduate high school early by taking extra classes. At this point, he was already generating 30 thousand dollars a month in profit. In my interview with Warsani, he stated that he didn’t even have time to show up to his high school graduation.
Fast forward to 2020, Warsani began selling CBD sleep products. He realized quickly that there was a huge gap in the market where there weren’t specific products available for sleep even though CBD could be used for such. That’s when he developed Sweet Dreams CBD.
Sweet Dreams is Warsani’s current CBD brand, and, in our interview, he explained how he has always been a big advocate for all-natural sleep products. He also expressed how he loves building his brands and having fun.
During our interview, I was able to ask Warsani, the owner of Sweet Dreams CBD, the following questions about his keys to success and you may find his answers very interesting.
What was your inspiration when you first started?
I was inspired by making money and landed on YouTube. I saw entrepreneurs who were making money and traveling the world after most of them had dropped out of school. I didn’t understand how they could become so successful in building their online presence, but even at a very young age, I knew I wanted to be my own boss.
How did you get to where you are today?
It began in March of 2017, with my clothing brand, Paradise Avenue. I was able to begin drop-shipping, which allowed me to earn 5 thousand dollars a day as a 16-year-old. I decided I wanted to build a company that was built to last and CBD was the industry I wanted to build it in. The industry is growing rapidly and there is a niche sleep market. I wanted to build my sleep brand and be a pioneer in this industry. Why not be one of the youngest people to do it, right?
How did you set your ideas into motion?
I am a believer of manifestation, like writing down your goals and visions on a physical piece of paper. You have to know what you want. I wrote down the amount of revenue I wanted to make the first year of creating Sweet Dreams and I followed my heart from there.
What sets you apart from everyone else?
I feel like everything I’ve done is different. I always try to be unique and pay attention to detail. The product works and looks friendly compared to the majority of these CBD products that look like medicine. There are a lot of terrible quality products and I want to be a natural solution. We don’t support opioids and big pharma, so I am trying to eliminate the need to take pills with a healthy substitute. Sweet Dreams tastes good and makes you feel better, just as advertised, nothing more or nothing less.
What can we expect to see from you in the future?
I am growing Sweet Dreams and would like to make it one of the largest CBD companies of all time. My goal is to help millions of people sleep better. I also want to build up this company, grow my team, and document everything on my YouTube Channel.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
To always stay consistent and make small changes to your life every day. Take things slowly and patiently, especially with projects you adore. This is the technique that I’ve applied with Sweet Dreams.
What tips do you have for young entrepreneurs?
Set yourself apart. Stay consistent because success won’t happen overnight and you’re not going to get it by giving 10% of your effort.
