In the last 17 years, I’ve delivered personalized and customized web-based applications, business software, tools and scripts for over 200+ international clients to help them either reduce business expenses, bring offline data into a web-based system, manage staff remotely, revamp their old system, improve website speed optimization and solve technical problems.
Being a curious thinker, I experimented with several roles in real life that enabled me to experience what it likes to be a job worker, freelancer, agency owner, entrepreneur and investor.
I've been called a consultant, coach, mentor, teacher, adviser, mind opener, etc by people.
I’ve also done several online earning experiments including but not limited to blogging, affiliate marketing, adsense, private tutoring, online courses, coaching, mentoring, consultation, etc.
I've personal experiences in gaming, spirituality, yoga, aerobics, martial arts, lucid dreaming, virtual reality, out of the body and curing black magic.
During 1996-1999, I had passion to create computer software but no money to buy computer or even take admission in any institute. A gaming friend (Ayaz Ahmad) helped me to use his computer and supported with helpful resources so I started to play with computer and learn coding skills as well.
I jumped into computer hardware & software, networking, multimedia and animation tools, web designing & development and much more through articles and tutorials as well as practical experiments.
I started earning as a sales boy on a CD/DVD shop and I also started sell & purchase of computer equipments. Beside it, I was also offering services of windows and software installation.
After several months of hard work I started career as a computer instructor then moved to corporate job environment and worked like a crazy guy for about 2 years in an ISP (SAMWOnline) while sleeping like 2 hours a day and also finished my intermediate diploma education.
I self-studied various web technologies like Cold Fusion, .NET, Flash, XML and ASP because I was hunger to learn anything new coming to the market.
It was a tough job and seniors didn't help me for upgrading myself and ditched out my creative and hard work to prevent my growth in company.
I was disappointed by toxic environment with lie and deception so I wanted to quit chasing 9-5 routine and stay at my home.
One of my biggest frustration was having no highest grades and no strong education behind to appear in exams of universities in Pakistan due to requirement of high grades. My desire of higher education in computer science was killed.
Meanwhile, I had started to work with one international client of a friend for website designing and flash animations and it was beginning of freelancing without knowing that I'm already on freedom path.
Fast forward one day, I got a "5 Minute Freelancing" e-book. It was the idea and inspiration for freedom and quit 9-5 rat race using freelancing platforms.
I started to utilize minimum 5 minutes daily for bidding on projects (Guru, GetALancer, Elance) and after so much frustration in failing to win any project, I was disappointed.
I was sitting in frustration and thinking then Allah sent me a reminder that there is one more site where I should try.
I discovered back that forgotten site "RentACoder" in 2005 (I had registered there in 2001) and this time I carefully studied and reviewed many projects.
It took me approx. one or two months to earn my first $100 then I finally kick started selling my services online.
"Multipotentiality is an educational and psychological term referring to the ability and preference of a person, particularly one of strong intellectual or artistic curiosity, to excel in two or more different fields."
"The term Renaissance man or polymath is used for a very clever person who is good at many different things. The idea comes from a time of history called the Renaissance which lasted from about 1400 to about 1600. One of the most famous people alive during this time was Leonardo da Vinci."
"Having multiple careers is the growing trend in the late 20th century and early 21st century whereas a career comprises the work activities that can be identified with a particular job or profession These multiple careers can either be concurrent or sequential. Both may occur for different reasons."
