The latest episode of “Failing to Success” features Saad Bin Shafiq, the founder of SHHA Marketing Agency, a growth consulting and marketing company. Saad discusses his journey of starting several small companies in the US, which initially failed before he finally hit success. One of his major obstacles was a food distribution company that had a large client who refused to pay, causing him to let go of six employees. Saad then sued the client and recovered his money after two and a half years. Despite this setback, he persevered and continued to start more companies, and eventually found success with his current company that specializes in marketing and growth consulting.
Saad Bin Shafiq’s journey of entrepreneurship began when he arrived in the US on scholarship to attend college. He started several small businesses, including drop shipping, but they were unsuccessful. He then started a food distribution company that imported and distributed small food products, including pink Himalayan salt, which was one of his biggest successes. However, one of his largest clients refused to pay, and Saad had to let go of six employees. He sued the client and eventually won, recovering his money after two and a half years.
Despite the setback, Saad persevered and continued to start more companies. He eventually found success with his current company, SHHA Marketing Agency, which specializes in marketing and growth consulting. He was surprised to receive his first client within the first two weeks of starting this company and has since gained many more high-profile clients.
