E-commerce and online retail changed the world by storm when they were first introduced just years ago. Many people’s lives have changed–either because they have benefitted from easier shopping and buying or because they have gotten involved in selling. Nonetheless, not everyone who becomes a seller achieves success.
Zishan Manji is one of the cases of success in e-commerce. From Orlando, Florida, Zishan grew up surrounded by rich businessmen and families with inherited wealth. However, he had no wealth or business to take over, so he decided he had to find something himself.
At age 13, he started selling wallets on Amazon, buying from eBay for half the price. Quick after, he was kicked out of Amazon for being under age, and moved to eBay where he started selling vapes, at the time the trend had not even started.
Zishan knew that if he put his head down and grinded every day with hard work, rewards would follow. And indeed they did: Zishan is now 21, bought a BMW i8, was able to help his dad retire and bought him a Mercedes Benz, hired 20 employees, and has multiple e-commerce brands.
This idea of having his own business and being able to run it on his own terms was the driving force through it all. Even as he dealt with the biggest obstacle of his life: his mother’s death in 2018 after losing a fight to cancer.
Indeed, now Zishan is an e-commerce guru who is trying to help change thousands of people’s lives by teaching young teenagers still in high school as well as people in their 40s who have two jobs and families how to start their business with almost no experience. Over 1000 people have received Zishan’s help in establishing their business.
Zishan’s goal is to educate people to fully understand that trying to become an entrepreneur can definitely pay off, but that it comes with obstacles and hardships. He also highlights the importance of understanding that this is not a one man show and that everyone needs an extra hand.
For Zishan success is everything, because nothing feels better than succeeding at something that you never thought was possible. It builds more drive and increases the reasons to grow the business. But in order to achieve this, mindset is crucial.
Zishan has exciting ideas in development that will continue raising his net profits and expanding his reach to help more and more people learn about how to get involved in e-commerce and start their own business. He wants to change the education system and teach future students how to succeed in life and build generational wealth.
