Entrepreneurship is daunting, and it takes a lot of effort to succeed. While every entrepreneur wants to succeed in their business, most tend to give up too soon because of the many challenges they face. Nafez Husseini, a self-made millionaire shares some of the lessons he has learned along the way.

Nafez Husseini is an expert digital marketer, self-made entrepreneur, and the president of Authority Media Group, a social media company specializing in advertising, marketing, and consultancy. Founded in 2020, Authority Media Group so far manages over 25 million followers across various social media platforms and handles media buying for over 200 million followers.

Every multi-million dollar business was once a start-up, says Nafez; your hard work and determination are what will determine your success. Before starting Authority Media Group, Nafez had worked for various companies, among them Apple and PepsiCo. In 2016, Nafez started his first media company, Media Husky, which he later closed to focus on his studies. Four years later, he has a marketing degree from The University of Alabama and is a top social media company president.

Here are lessons you can learn from his journey:

  • Follow your passion

The best drive in life is following your passion. By doing something you’re passionate about, giving up becomes difficult. Growing up in the digital age, Nafez was exposed to so much information and opportunities from a young age. Motivated by his love for social media and entrepreneurship, he dived into the industry, and by age 13, he had started gaining millions of followers across social media platforms.

  • Be innovative and creative with your ideas.

Since people began to realize the potential of digital marketing, the industry has been very competitive. According to Nafez, the secret to succeeding in any business is being unique and offering practical solutions to your clients. For instance, with digital marketing, while driving traffic is important, it is hardly enough to generate revenue. Together with his team of experts, Nafez creates strategies that will generate both traffic and revenue.

  • Be persistent

Failures, risks, and challenges are almost inevitable. Speaking about the difficulties he has encountered, Nafez notes what keeps him going is his persistence. In his words, he has learned to let his dreams give into him rather than him giving up on his dreams. Additionally, he notes that you will never know the outcome unless you take risks and that failure is not fatal. What matters is the courage to move on after failure.

  • Remain true to your work ethics

A strong work ethic is essential to the success of your business as it affects how clients perceive your brand. Though Nafez has established and solidified a spot in the industry, his work ethic remains at the forefront of his career. Nafez and his team promise to go above and beyond their limits to ensure client satisfaction with each client. This has helped him build an impeccable clientele.

  • Learn to create your own opportunities

There is competition in almost all fields, and unless you learn to create your own opportunities and turn circumstances to your advantage, attaining success will be difficult. In addition to this, believing in yourself and challenging your limits is also crucial.

Given these lessons, while the path to success may be a bit bumpy, having entrepreneurs like Nafez Husseini who are willing to share their lessons will help you avoid similar mistakes and give you an understanding of the industry.
