All Fun And Games Until A Business Was Birthed
Exploring the seemingly playthings from his early years was not just for fun, as he started monetizing his love for these gadgets when he began selling modified hardware parts on eBay as a teenager. He was smart enough to register his business under the name 2fastConcepts. A name inspired by the movie – Fast and Furious. The specialty of the brand was trading car parts and customizing cars.
Moving To Dubai
By the time he was 21, he was yet again inspired to ship one of his customized Mercedes Benz to Dubai after watching his uncle’s Dubai vacation videos and how the country is known for luxury cars. As novel and exciting as this idea was, it was equally challenging, especially at that age, to get the paperwork and contracts done. Despite getting them done, he lost quite a lot, but he did not give up. He instead banked on his marketing skills to rebuild his business at the new location.
He did not stop at just trying to sell customized cars, but diversified and founded a social media agency called MEMMOS which caters to companies trying to get some market share in the Emirates. Soon, he was made the Chief Strategist for the blockchain tech development company called Block Gemini. He saw the future and utilized this opportunity which has paid off. For instance, in 2018, he got awarded as the Best Crypto influencer at the Satoshi United Crypto conference in Singapore.
