Ali Askarov – Epitome of Persistence and Resilience

“Failure is just a stepping stone to success”,

“Failure is just a stepping stone to success”, it’s not just said, but also believed by many professionals and successful entrepreneurs. Ali Askarov is one of those young entrepreneurs who takes failures as the components of epitome of accomplishments. 

However, before delving into the current business and industry, almost five years ago, Ali was an accomplished basketball player. Ali has been all over the world while playing the game he so dearly loves. Some of those places were, China, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Spain, and Luxembourg. His performance on the court earned him a spot-on Azerbaijan’s National Basketball team.

Due to an unexpected knee injury that caused him to miss multiple years in his career, Ali had to hang up the kicks and pursuit a career elsewhere. According to Ali, “At the time I didn’t see it that way but, going through that knee injury was a blessing in disguise. It allowed me to quit a passion I was perusing while getting underpaid. I came to realize there if I channel the same energy in real life scenarios as I did in my basketball career, I would see some positive in life.”

He has always had a passion for music. So, perusing a career in that industry was what he set his eyes on. He became close friends with Karl Wolf, a multi-award-winning artist in Canada who showed him the ropes in the industry. His motto in life is “there are always fewer offerings from things that come to you with ease. With hurdles and challenges comes reward.”

This young entrepreneur is currently working as a consultant for one of the biggest logistic companies in the country. He, along with his team, have build one of the biggest truck stops in North America.
