Social Media as a business platform in 2021?

Published

on

In 2020 one thing that has been proven is that having a regular 9-5 is not good enough to have a happy and sustainable lifestyle. So what is the right path to take in 2021 to secure your future?

Starting a Business

The only true way to “secure” your future is to be the person that’s building it. You can’t expect to be in control of your own future if you are not in control of your life, and the only way to do so is to be your own boss!

Starting your own business, becoming an Entrepreneur, more and more seems like the ONLY right way to generate income! Yes, it is hard, and yeah you will fail many times, but you are the one in control! If you want to earn more, that is up to you, if you need a 2 month break that is up to you!

Types of Businesses

Through my career as an entrepreneur I have seen 3 main business models!

1) Health/Fitness
Maybe you are an expert in certain topics on health or fitness, or maybe you are just a health/fitness enthusiast, but believe it or not no matter which one of the two you are, you can build a sustainable and successful business! I have seen online fitness trainers making anywhere between 6 to 8 figures, these people can either run their own programs on their time, while making. 6-8 figures OR they can work for a gym and make 30k/year. That is up to them and it is up to you.

2) Products/Services
Do you have a passion for making jewelry or T-Shirts, or do you absolutely love running ads on Facebook and YouTube? Why not turn that into a career? Instead of working at your regular 9-5 job, you can spend your days designing your product and posting it online so that other people who enjoy it can purchase it for themselves, or maybe you can use your passion for something to provide services to someone who needs a person just like you! If you ask me this sounds much better than mopping the floor or lifting boxes and making sandwiches for a big corporation!

3) Coaching/Mentoring
What if you are an expert in a certain field, or you know something that not many others do? Do you know that there are people out there who would pay for you to teach them? You can share your knowledge with the world and get paid for knowing something that you love. There are tons of people making great money making courses, holding online classes or mentoring others to do what they love, and you can do the same!

Social Media?

Now you may be thinking to yourself: “I know how to cook, but how do I find people who are interested in learning from me?” or “Oh man, I have been making butterfly rings for ages, how do I actually find people who would pay for them?”

So I know that you have by now heard of these social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, but how is that of any use to you if you are just wanting to start your business?

Did you know that there are approximately 500 million users on Instagram alone EVERY SINGLE DAY.
So why should you be on social media as a business owner? Because you have a huge audience to expose your business to. It’s not the people’s responsibility to see you, it is your responsibility to make sure that you present yourself to them, and there is no easier way to do it then going on to the most populated platforms in the world like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok!

SUCCESS IS NOT DETERMINED BY AGE: How Sahil Shafiq Jaskani became one of the Youngest Entrepreneur

Published

on

Nobody becomes successful overnight. It takes time, effort and dedication to be on top. While the stories of success differ from person to person, nowadays, success is no longer limited to people of age. That is especially true in this digital era as we start to see different people becoming well known in their industry at a very young age.

For Entrepreneur Sahil Shafiq Jaskani, this can not be any more true. 

How he got into Social Media Growth

Sahil Shafiq Jaskani was born in Norway with a Pakistani roots. Being 14 years old, he can be categorized as part of the Generation Z. But even though Sahil is still very young, his expertise in the field of social media is certainly mature for his age. You don’t often hear stories of a 14 years old dominating the social media platforms and that is something that Sahil has been doing since he was 11 years old.

“I started at a young age by making instagram pages and growing them by only posting. These pages didn’t make it so far, but i just kept it up. Later I found out about Snapchat and made my first page @LOLZ which is now approaching over 1,000,000 subscribers.” he said.

Instagram might be the first platform that Sahil ventured in but it is certainly not the only platform that he knows how to grow. At first, nothing seemed to work with his Ig pages but through consistency and drive to research and try new things, he eventually learned the secrets of growing a social media account. This is what he applied in his Snapchat accounts. He learned that people are different in terms of their interests and creating multiple pages will allow greater saturation of the market. As of now, all of his pages have a combined of 4.5 Million subscribers. That’s a lot of people who follow what Sahil does into his accounts and he did this at just 14 years old. 

A Young Entrepreneur

Sahil at this age can be regarded as the youngest to be able to do it in today’s era. His brilliance in his craft has allowed him to earn money that can only be imagined by people who are older than him. He attributes his success with his dedication to grind daily in achieving his goals fast and expanding his knowledge in the field he is in. He also attributes it to the large network he accumulated with the quality of work he is doing and that is certainly valuable in this era where marketing is no longer done through traditional but rather pursued through digital. He has been one of the most successful in growing social media accounts. 

Even at the current position that he has in the industry, Sahil’s hunger doesn’t waver one bit. Right now he is working on a goal which is growing his accounts to reach a network of 10 Million followers. He has 4.5 Million followers on Snapchat and he wants to double that this year. Imagine having 10 Million followers that you can market your products and services to. That’s a lot of traffic that can be generated through Sahil. 

When asked what principle he has learned in his young journey to success he said, “Consistency is the key to success”. That is definitely true and something that everyone should learn from Sahil. He also shared what he thinks is his edge to the competition to which he humbly said, “My network is much larger than most, which puts me at the top of the game.  Thus, I can grow new accounts extremely fast and build myself bigger”.

To learn more about Sahil Shafiq Jaskani, head over to his Instagram. You can also check his Snapchats accounts which are Public Personal Snapchat, Biggest page, and 2nd Biggest page.

Collin Sherburne, From Brain Surgeries To Financial Freedom

Published

Collin Sherburne, a 19 year old entrepreneur from Wareham, Massachusetts, has created quite the name for himself. Back in June of 2016 at the age of 14 Collin faced Bacterial Meningitis and an Abscess on the brain. During this battle he had 2 EVD’s placed in his head and 4 total brain surgeries within 2 months. With a 4% chance of making it out of that alive with serious long term effects and a 96% chance of death, Collin found himself the most positive person in the room through that time, saying he will be “just fine” and “everything will be good” to Friends, Family, and even Doctors. Sherburne was able to go back home in August completely fine.


After overcoming that sickness and studying 4 years at a trade school to become an Electrician and winning top classman of his shop, Collin realized that’s not what made him happy. He wanted to create his own business helping young entrepreneurs like him, find what makes them happy and guiding them down the right path to success.

After reaching out to Collin to get his thoughts he replied, “It was easily the biggest life changing experience anyone can ask for. I was young and didn’t really care about anyone or anything when I was in the hospital. After coming out of that hospital with all my memories and being completely fine, I realized I got extremely lucky and life isn’t to be taken for granted. Do what makes YOU happy, not someone else. There’s no need to live a miserable life doing something you hate. When you can easily do something you love and be happy!”


Now at the age of 19, Collin is an active trader in the Stock Market and Crypto Currency. Teaming up with the Money Man, Joe Still. They have created a company named TLMM “Teach learn Make Money” assisting young entrepreneurs on the path to becoming financially free.
