Sahil is a young Generation Z entrepreneur born in Norway with Pakistani roots who has gained a great amount of supporters across his social media platforms. Jaskani has been able to grow a very large following base across multiple platforms at once, in just under one year.
Our audience is keen about reading stories of young social media experts creating a difference in the world. Your profile speaks volumes of the outstanding work you have done. Enlighten us about what you do.
The following is a transcript of an interview with Sahil Jaskani. Some of the questions have been edited for brevity and clarity.
1. What is something people wouldn’t know when looking at your Snapchat pages?
Some people don’t know the amount of work I had to put growing my pages from scratch. Just imagine growing a social media profile with 0 followers from scratch, that’s exactly what I did. I almost felt like quitting at times, but I had the time to pursue and continue my dream and the next thing I knew was that one of my pages already peaked at a million subscribers, that simply proves that you can accomplish anything you put your mind into.
2. What is a ritual you have when you need to get down to business?
One thing that really helps me is affirmations. Every once in awhile I travel one random place where I spend time practicing affirmations. I also spend a lot of time at the gym. These two activities really keep me centered and focused.
3. How did you manage to grow your social media accounts at those levels?
At first I didn’t really knew what I was doing, I researched methods on how to grow my social media pages and nothing really seemed to work. Some years later I found out what worked and what didn’t. I applied that strategy into my accounts and the following base were booming like crazy. People are different and I tried to create as many pages as I possibly could while knowing I could grow the page at the same time, which paid of in the long term. I simply didn’t give up posting content and that’s why my pages succeed in the end.
As Sahil’s meteoric rise to success attests (as directly evidenced by his prolific Snapchat growth as of late to over 2,5 million followers combined), Gen-Zers who can engineer-business-solutions to enable the current generation to find contemporary solutions on the macro scale are widely becoming the new thought leaders of our era. Sahil said: “I think maturity hit me at a very early stage. Things just happened with the flow. I took a lot of responsibilities on me at a very early age, and that’s the sole reason behind my success.”
