1. Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us about what brought you to start your business?
I started my business because I was inspired by so many big names like Bill Gates, and it really made me think if they can do it, why can’t I? then I took my time, got some knowledge and started accordingly, it was rough at times and fun at others but I don’t regret it and I’m really happy with the progress I have made so far, Amel claims that this is just the beginning.
I was born and raised in Norway. After completing the first year of High School, I dropped out, due to the fact that I saw a great business potential in the digital environment. This decision led to many new opportunities such as more spare time and sooner lead to more income streams.
2. Can you share the biggest challenges that you had to overcome since you started this business?
The biggest challenges were staying up late and failing, with a headache, sometimes I lost thousands of dollars but that didn’t stop me from continuing, that just pushed me to go even further.
Amel claims that he wouldn’t have reached this point of his career if it wasn’t for his mindset.
Today, I work with several known companies as well as traveling around the world. He says he wants to share his success method to more people so that those who went through a bad past can learn and end up like him.
3. What advice would you have for other new entrepreneurs?
If there were one thing I would recommend anyone who starts a business, then I would tell them to work as hard as they can and never give up no matter how many times they fail.
Amel Elezovic stepped into I world on January 19, 2002, in Norway. I have inherited Bosnian as well as Serbian roots from my mother. Amel and his brother were raised by his mother and during those days, his mother was the only source of income for the family and the struggle inspired many people. This was a time when I became curious about software engineering and producing content on youtube. Apart from having an interest in software, I also appreciated training, traveling, and obstacles which kept my competitive spirit active.
4. What was the reason that made you quit high-school for good?
Unfortunately, I was sure that what school education is teaching is not appropriate in the real world. Having no support from dad an barely any from mom. Having an aim of learning several things, I pursued my education as well as a profession and realized that reality is hidden everywhere.
While I went to high school I worked with big enterprises, and also made the decision to drop out and scale my business to a bigger level. While I went to school I felt very demotivated and I also felt that this wasn’t the kind of education for me.
Amel affirms that every opportunity he got was benignly seen as a gift. This mindset encouraged him to participate in more and more errands which made him more powerful as an individual.
