They say it’s never too early to delve into the business industry and become an entrepreneur. A testament to that statement is a man who goes by the name of Faiz Imran, a 17-year-old serial entrepreneur and high school student attending Peachtree Ridge High. Despite garnering multiple scholarship opportunities, Faiz decided not to pursue additional education after high school. He promised himself that he would foray into self-education through taking action and surrounding himself with like-minded individuals who might eventually become his mentors.
Faiz has always been an avid entrepreneur, at the age of 9 he started selling fidget spinners, pop sockets and candies at school. He’s always had the passion and talent for entrepreneurship, and it’s showing in spades as he conquers the business industry by owning multiple companies at such a young age.
Currently, Faiz Imran is still a high school student who spends his time at school, having already accomplished so much while trying to juggle school and business there’s no telling how much he can achieve once he graduates and manages to free up the time that school takes away from his business endeavours.
He enjoys travelling and spends a lot of time exploring different cities and countries around the world. Faiz mentioned after spending time focusing on Fismma, his marketing agency, the world around him had changed, his friends had grown up and left for college and started new endeavours, it felt like walking outside for the first time in ages for him.
Despite knowing a lot of people, Faiz keeps his connections intimate and close, valuing very few people as friends or colleagues and mostly seeing some as mere acquaintances. Faiz totally loses himself and immerses himself in the process of accomplishing his endeavours. There were times when he didn’t even realize that he was blocking off his family and friends for months on end when trying to accomplish a new goal, severely hampering his relationships with friends and family. Because of this, Faiz now makes it a priority to spend time with his family and loved ones whenever he can after losing his grandparents the following year, and truly understanding the importance of his family and how much they mattered to him.
Faiz’s first rise to fame and taste of success was with his startup idea called “Everscent”, a fragrance releasing apparatus that releases fragrances automatically while tracking the user’s movements. He launched the product on Kickstarter and managed to sell it to a private licensing company before the campaign even finished.
Faiz then took a step back and tried to break down what made Everscent into a success and realized it that it was all due in part to the marketing. Faiz learned everything he could and used his knowledge on building websites to then create Fismma, his digital agency. He started by building a free website for his friends and family and then leveraging his skills to get small gigs. Over time he started getting larger and larger projects and then expanded out to doing social media work along with the websites.
Fast forward to today, Faiz has built and developed a team of 120 individuals of which seven are working full-time, Fismma has now officially become a full-service digital agency. Age does not matter in the world of business if you’ve got an amazing idea that you can leverage for your success, then always go for it. Faiz Imran is a testament to that statement, and at such a young age, his potential is near limitless.
