With the gaining popularity of entrepreneurship and the startup culture, more people find themselves wandering into the field of business than ever before. Especially young people, who find Business as something cool to pursue as their way of earning bread and butter.
Even with more support from investors and the government, starting a successful business is never easy. Moreover, statistics prove it with the fact that;
33% of businesses fail in the first two years
50% of businesses fail in the first five years
66% of businesses fail in the first ten years
and sustaining through the minefield of problems is never easy even after those first ten years. It’s a dog eat dog world out there and when you find successful business people like our very own Mr. Alireza Kohany.
We had a short chat with Mr. Alireza Kohany, He was kind enough to share a little bit about his own life, including his own difficulties and challenges in his life. So we took our pen and paper to jot down a few things about Mr. Alireza Kohany.
Just like every common citizen, he loved his motherland beyond common words. But life has a way of taking the things that you love and keeping it out of reach, as Mr. Alireza Kohany (born 18/06/1993 Tehran, Iran) was forced to migrate to Istanbul. Even though he found better opportunities in Istanbul, he still claimed to miss his motherland Iran by a ton. From the way he spoke, it was pretty easy to decipher that he left a part of his heart there, never to be found again.
Even though Mr. Alireza Kohany had a tough childhood in Iran, he never took it as a shortcoming. Rather he used this as his chance at redemption, learning whatever he could by using his failures as a stepping stone to his small yet, satisfying victories. He believed in learning from his mistakes and took over a growth mindset, that has put Mr. Alireza Kohany in his current position. He is a popular man in Iran and has 1 million followers on social media especially Instagram.
His personal life mostly revolves around his business, but he accept that his mother was the real love of his life.
“Life is never fair nor easy, but we can always be winners by braving on a smile while wading through the difficulties to make the best of what we have.’’
