I want to know who u are, teach me your ways😆
Thanks😃😃😃.What did I say so impressive?
You achieved what you want right?
More than what I had imagined. It's a long story. Sort of boring😅
Trust me , i NEVER find success stories boring.
Really? Awesome.Basically, I did my engineering and got a oodish Job. My dad didn't want me to settle just with bacehlors. So I started exploring, and was offered good Masters degree in good university. It was far, and bit expensive. My dad all but pushed me towards it. I ended up leaving the job and going to another country. I finished my masters and Now I am working as scientist for one very good company. 8 years ago, I hadn't even dreamt of it.
The problem is i feel like i have academically failed, because engineering was never what i wanted to do , but i'm stuck in it cuz of my grades🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
Its completely fine. Engineering helps in more than one ways. One of the biggest advantage is, it needs creativity. And I later realised how much it did help. Many of my friends who did engineering with me, rarely work in that field. Most of them have creative businesses. One girl started a selling company to sell stuff on amazon. It is now amongst top 10 sellers on amazon. One girl started her beauty parlor services that go to home to do make up etc. One guy started his own electric bicycle company (maybe this one was related to engineering). One guy started transportation firm. One guy started online grocery store. Possibilities are unlimited. Find your passion/idea. What you wanna do. And work towards it. Start small. Maybe use Instagram etc to promote and sell on some other sellers. Then slowly learn what you NEED. Like how to file taxes, how to officially register etc, how to build a website etc.One girl I know wanted to provide self-help tutorials. She basically learned how to build website, how to edit and make videos, etc. And now her packages are online. People judge. Make comments. I was very lucky that my dad was there to shield me from those. I cannot tell you to ignore them, as I myself would have failded to do so. But I do think you are stronger than me.
Wow, you seem to be reading my mind talking about online businesses and what not , but i just don't know where to start , and the worst part is i live in a place where being a well-known entrepenuer world wide is bear to impossible since resources are limited, unless if you are slutting around to the politicians, i live in a very corrupted part of the world.
SO the way I would approach is like this. Keep a notebook. For yourself.Start by spending one hour a day to get information. Like what is the procedure to setup a firm. You nee dto register the name first. Have a business bank account etc. Now there are some firms who already help you do all these. Find out what those are. And how much are they gonna charge. If you need political connections for it, or you need to bribe, find out how much it is. And who is that you have to bribe. This is wrong, but you can either fight against it now, or get your work done, build yourself for something and then fight against it.Then comes the visibility. How you are gonna promote your business. LinkedIN, instagram, facebook etc. Create a fake page and get to know the process.Then comes the contact part. Website, emails etc. Again there are firms who do that for you. But websites now adays are quite easy to build. You search for complete process and how you can register your company name website. How to rent a domain. How to host etc. Then, running the business. Designing Logo. etc.If you have the idea/goal, you can slowly try to make into reality.
Thank you so much for the guidance i will make sure to take notes, but first, i will have to work to get money, because i want to start from 0, and wouldn't want to ask for money even from my parents, as for having political connections or bribing... my reputation comes before everything, and bribing is forbidden in my religion anyways, nothing is better than a fortune earned rightfully.and again, thank u so much for taking the time to guide me, it's much appreciated.
Yeah I know. I am Muslim as well. It is forbidden.But I also know those countries. It is very hard to move things forward without that. And definitely you dont wanna make your earnings haram. I understand that. If you could find a way around it, it is very good.And no problem at all. I will be reall happy if 8 years down the line you also have exceeded what you expect now.
Awww that is so sweet of u to say, and i didn't know u were a muslim, guess this makes things easier since u would understand me more and the circumistances i'm facing where i live, and i will make sure infrom u when i get there... only if u decided we could contact eachother😁
I will find out. Insha-allah.And I like remaining mysterious stranger who just wanted to help. :)
But how am i going to inform you about my success after 8 years?😅
Lets see. :) :) :)
What would go wrong just pming me?🤔
Hey dont be offended. I just didn't wanna be another dude trying to slide in your DMs😰😰😰.I will DM.
Loool , you won't, trust me, after all, i was eager for you to😉🙃
Well, that mademy day 😂
Thanks gag for MHO.And correction: >99%.

I wasted years of my life where i could have done great things, regret kills me
*when not where
at 22 that is sad as fuck... sorry but you have around another 60-80 years to fulfil any dreams but you won't reach any of them if you dont view your younger years as a learning process. to me regret is self indulgent nonsense based on nothing but vanity
How would you know i have that much time left? i could die in a second for all we know, right? i just want my parents to be proud of me again and people won't view me as a lifeless person, i wasted 4 years of my life because of my mental illnesses , they made me weak, i feel like i can't have any control over my mind and emotions anymore, i feel weak and helpless as fuck😢
well im no fortune teller but its clear you arnt helping yourself with that attitude
I can't help but feel that way , everything has been going down hill, literally, when i get happy for a while, i know something is about to go dowm terribly whether the fault would be wthin me or my surroundings, it's like being happy and motivated is what scares me😖
i have been there too believe it or not but the key is to not let those things that scare you controll you... it becomes self defeating in the end so i do hope you can find the strength you need to beat it
I hope i can get over it because i have plenty of dreams that i want to bring to life.
well like i said at the start there's sadly no shortcuts but by realizing that, you are making a start in the right direction... just keep plodding on and you will get there in the end... its only if you stop you cease to get any closer ;)
I have had so many starts😔
same here believe me... i call them false starts but you know when you struggle to go forward i found going sideways helps more than standing still
That is very true, i don't only stand still but go backward as well🤦♀️🤦♀️
well i hope i helped give you some direction but the rest is up to you ;)
I really appreciate your compassion and help, hope it takes me a long way, dearie, thank u so much😘😘😘
