Umar Cassim is not your average teenager. At just 14, he made his own pocket money setting up his first business through social media, namely flipping sneakers and expanding his influence.
Only 2 years passed, and Cassim is already running his own marketing agency, capitalizing on his previous contacts, and nailing collaborations with prestigious brands and high-profile clients.
Cassim’s fresh approach to social media growth and content management is now in demand. Yet, he is mature enough to diversify and implement a long-term strategy, hiring trustworthy people who align with his mindset.
Cassim’s current 6-figure annual income seems to be just the beginning, as he is putting the foundations that will later allow him to have an impressive income through e-commerce, real estate, and other entrepreneurial ideas. His business model is being built around human happiness, the joy of creating new concepts, and helping others. Both grounded and enthusiastic, Cassim has always known what he’s wanted from a young age, which is undoubtedly the key to personal success.
Cassim might not be selling sneakers anymore, yet he is planning on launching a clothing brand along with other methodically planned projects. With profits from previous successful businesses, he is funding the next, following an independent path.
Cassim is definitely a great problem-solver, able to identify the issue and find the remedy. Support from his loyal fan base has tremendously facilitated a journey filled with youth and smart ideas. Investing initially in a few social media campaigns, he learned on the job, specializing in innovating promotional techniques.
Cassim is still motivated by the fact that he is already in a better financial status than the majority of the people on a salary, and he works from home, which is, apparently, today the trend. What is even more fascinating is that he is totally enjoying what he does for a living.
His first decisions were pretty much intuitive; he just delved into something that he felt drawn to. The self-taught young entrepreneur, followed the example of the masters in his niche, applying their tactics with an individual twist.
His transparency, honesty, and personalized approach to services is highly appreciated by a discerning clientele across social media. He is a very generous guy, consistent in what he offers and determined to become the inspiration for others entering the business universe.
One of Cassim’s goals is to get successful enough to be able to give back to the community in a substantial way. Helping others is a driving force. He needs to have a great cause solidifying his work ethics.
This is how he managed to overcome difficulties and prove naysayers wrong. “We live in an era where everyone wants you to fail,” he explains. Cassim is not the type of person who gives up, though. He is always about working hard and taking it to the next level. Pushing the boundaries is what enables him to scale up his business fast and efficiently.
You have to take risks there, and such sacrifices are more often than not worth it. It’s the necessary leap of faith involving, of course, well-calculated decision making. “You have to have the guts,” he insists.
