But how did he do it, and how can you too?

Change is self-driven

Salim believes that people change for two reasons: either from inspiration or despair. For him, change came from a point of despair. For Salim, much of his youth was spent in front of his computer. He knew he had to do something to become more confident with himself. He decided to take 100% ownership of his life.

His story also shows that he grew from strength to strength. With determination, you can do so as well. 

Desire to do more 

A nine-to-five job abroad allowed Salim a fabulous lifestyle, but he was limited. Salim knew he wanted to do more. He quit his job and set out to start entrepreneurship in the e-commerce industry. After creating multiple successful e-commerce businesses, Salim realized that there was an opportunity waiting to be achieved. Salim changed his business to have a human aspect and create significant impacts. He wanted to help others grow; he desired to help them achieve quantum leaps and break their limiting beliefs, much like he did himself. To live out his passion, Salim created a mentoring program for entrepreneurs. In as little as four weeks, Salim could take a perfect beginner to making more than 1k euros per day! This experience in online education eventually led him to later create Learning Master, which he co-founded with his business partner Djibril Mara. Salim aspired for greater and used all the digital marketing, business knowledge and experiences to help others create their online coaching, consulting, and service businesses.

Developing knowledge and skills

Much like Salim, if you are diligent and determined, you can create the skills you need for success. In his early twenties, Salim dived into the world of self-help. He read books, attended conferences, and met with people who were also looking for self-empowerment. He says, “Life is like a video game; intelligence, strength, and abilities are your stats. The beautiful thing about life is that you can improve the stats by working on yourself, exploring, learning, and discovering new skills.” Salim has been able to venture into territories where he had no background. With willingness to try new things, he has emerged victorious.

Helping others

They say the quickest way to attain success is to help others first. While this kind of thinking may be foreign to cultures that see the business world as a giant competition, success is not about winning as the other loses. Salim put others first. And the results speak for themselves. He’s on a mission to empower others to achieve success in the digital learning space. He came from selling physical products to sharing knowledge. Sure enough, by helping others succeed, Salim is thriving in his unique way.
