I'm either going to make it big or die trying - Akbar SheikhClick to Tweet

It's no surprise that while some people start in business and fail, others thrive.  And while there are many variables that separate each individual's journey, there happens to be correlations between those that succeed and those that give up.

What separates those that succeed in business and those that fail?  It all begins with setting the proper foundation.  Without laying the proper foundation, you may start the journey of entrepreneurship ambitiously and enthusiastically only to reach a certain point and plateauing.

So how do you create the proper foundation in order to grow, scale and succeed in entrepreneurship, health, relationships and other areas of life?

On today’s episode of the Have It All podcast, we’re joined by Akbar Sheikh, a man who's went from half dead & homeless to becoming a top 2% income earner.  After a near death experience landed him in the hospital, Akbar arose as a transformed man with a renewed sense of life.  Shortly after his near death experience, Akbar lost 50 lbs, quit smoking, and renounced his self-proclaimed title as the “Fast-food Junkie King of the East.”

After restructuring his life and forming daily habits to thrive, Akbar has gone on to make a name for himself in the online marketing world.  He has been trained by 7-figure earners in the internet marketing world, and now teaches THEM how to make more money online.  

Akbar has a passion for supporting entrepreneurs in building and scaling 7-figure businesses to have more impact and faster results.
