While success stories are meant to celebrate victories and triumphs that people have achieved in their lives, they are also intended to shed light on the difficulties that they encountered along the way. As a matter of fact, some of the world’s most prominent individuals owe their success to the trials that strengthened their characters and molded them into the laudable figures they are today. This is exactly how it was for Khalid Ahmed, a 24-year-old visionary who had to go through a series of challenges before he was able to reach impressive heights. With his story, he seeks to empower aspirants across the globe.
Khalid Ahmed, more prominently known as ISELLCOIN online, is the esteemed founder of two separate companies selling weighted blankets and computer parts, respectively. On top of that, he is also an angel investor whose most recent venture was to fund a ‘series A round’ for DOGPOUND, the most exclusive gym in the country. His fellow investors include big-time celebrities Tom Holland and Adriana Lima.
Anyone who has worked with Khalid Ahmed knows that the latter is always up for trying new endeavors that can contribute to his growth. One of the things that have been keeping him busy lately is the cryptocurrency market. Currently, he is only investing in the Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains. When he is not bombarded with work and other business matters, he likes to spend his spare time flying his Piper Warrior or racing his cars on the track.
Standing at the helm of a thriving career, Khalid Ahmed explained that his current success could be attributed to the tough challenges that he had to go through when he was only a kid. After being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when he was only nine years old, he was put into a state of septic shock. With medical bills stacking up, my parents were having a hard time trying to pay off everything. As a result, he was forced to look for ways to help financially.
“I then made it my mission in life to make sure my family will never be in this position again. I seared this into my brain and stepped up,” Khalid Ahmed explained when asked about the inspiration behind his success. Although he did not get to enjoy his childhood as most kids did, he never regretted any of his past.
Although Khalid Ahmed’s entrepreneurial journey began during his high school and college years when he was flipping older computer parts, it was not until he got a huge offer for 4 AMD Radeon Graphics cards that things finally began to take a turn for the better. The client revealed that he would be using the cards he purchased for Bitcoin. This eventually marked the beginning of Khalid’s venture into the crypto space.
“I expanded into selling fully-ready video game rigs with graphic cards included,” Khalid Ahmed said. “My business did well, and I began making contacts with suppliers in China.” The said partnerships made it possible for him to take on new successful e-commerce ventures and lease multiple warehouses in the United States. Once he gained a competitive position, he cut ties with his former partners and sold his pocket knife company and outdoor niche store.
With everything that he accomplished, Khalid Ahmed was able to give himself the things and experiences he missed out on when he was a child. More importantly, he finally got his parents the life they dreamed of having. Looking back on his journey, the visionary leader can say with full confidence that every obstacle he hurdled was worth the hustle.
