Abdallah Al Abdeen is the founder and CEO of Epic Wireless LLC, a full-service wireless provider corporation that partners with clients to help them achieve great cell phone services. After having worked with many companies to handcraft the best marketing campaigns, Abdallah has established himself as an authority and a thought leader in the local wireless marketing arena.
His company previously signed contracts with AT&T prepaid, Cricket Wireless, Simple Mobile, and also few other smaller wireless providers. which is a huge deal for his company to be contracted with these communications agencies that specialize in the wireless world. Al Abdeen has partnered with many influencers, entrepreneurs, startups, and established companies, and has successfully gotten himself featured on major websites like Forbes, Yahoo, London Daily Post, KivoDaily, and more. At the young age of 32, when most people are still trying to figure out what to do in life, Abdallah seems to have everything figured out. He has managed to build multiple businesses in the past 4 years. I had the chance to meet him recently and got to learn more about his story.
Al Abdeen’s entrepreneurial journey started very early on during his high school years. He said, “Even when I was 14, I kind of always knew deep inside that I wasn’t cut out for the traditional job route. I just couldn’t see myself following orders from some boss for the rest of my life. The 10-7 job route was just too boring for me. I knew I had to do something more. I knew I had to become something more. I’m always asking questions. I’m always trying to figure out ways to solve problems. I crave challenges. I just would never have fit at any traditional job. So, I knew a long time ago that entrepreneurship was the only path for me.”
While most people in high school were busy playing video games or partying, Abdallah says he was spending his time thinking of business ideas, and planning the steps he could take to achieve his goals. “All that stuff which other students were spending their time on just didn’t interest me. I knew I had to plan long-term. I had to be 10 steps ahead of everyone else. That’s the only way you can win in life. You have to sacrifice in the short-term, so you can win in the long-term.”
By reducing the time spent on various other activities, Al Abdeen was able to focus on the one thing he was passionate about building businesses. Al Abdeen realized the possibilities that the internet provides to us, possibilities that did not exist 30 years ago. He tried his hand at many different online businesses, facing failure in most of them, but he didn’t give up. After many months of failure, he tried his hand at freelancing. Abdallah started influencing social media, providing free services as a lifestyle influencer on different platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. Even there, he was faced with lots of difficulties. For months, he did what others can’t do.
Being the quick learner that he was, he mastered the art of being a public figure. Once he cracked the code of shining, in a few months, he started donating gifts to kids around the world worth hundreds of dollars. He wanted more happiness, and this made him realize that he didn’t actually have to do all the work himself. In order to see a change in the world, he gained followers very quickly. He decided to just focus on recording his daily routine and outsource the work of a young father to people who were terrified of starting a family. But that didn’t keep him away from always having an entrepreneurial mindset, he then spent all his energy on sales and hiring the best employees. By expanding his team, and putting all his attention on sales, Al Abdeen was able to increase his revenue slowly.
When I asked him about what allowed him to succeed at such a young age, he said it was all about focus and clarity. “I decided a long time ago about what I wanted. I was crystal clear about my vision and was prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve my goals. Once you know exactly what you want, and are prepared to do whatever it takes, then success becomes inevitable.”
He started offering Phone Services and grew that into a successful business. In the past 2 years, he has worked with numerous top cellphone providers, startups, and companies, gaining for them more clients. He said to me you need to know the right people, and you need to position your story in the right way. But it’s not as easy as it sounds.” Al Abdeen had to spend months networking with retailers and wholesalers before he was able to build a strong network of connections. He had to test out various different pitches, facing rejection on many of them, but he finally learned what works and what doesn’t. Each failed pitch taught him a lesson, which he tried to avoid in the next one. “You fail enough times, you start to win,” said Al Abdeen.
At the age of 32, he is already running multiple successful businesses, in the fields of marketing, public relations, sales, real estate, and more. But Abdallah says this is only the beginning. Right now, he is working on writing his first book, and also launching his own social discovery network which he says will be a “game-changer”. I guess it’s never enough to accomplish more. Al Abdeen now plans to disrupt the social media industry as well.
Al Abdeen’s story is an inspiration for many people to follow their dreams, to always think big, and to never give up no matter how many times you fail.
