Fam Mirza is unlike any other entrepreneur I have met. He’s does not follow trends instead he creates his own. You might remember Nelly wearing the split jerseys in the Superbowl halftime show back in the early 2000s which later went on to spark a jersey trend that engulfed the hip hop culture.
That is what he had accomplished to do by the tender age of fifteen. He speaks against following trends such as bitcoin, dropshipping, and other various fly by night, get rich quick schemes.
To quote some of his early interviews, when asked about Bitcoin he stated “I do not believe in bitcoin until there is adoption in the market. The big players will need to utilize this currency before we can see actual growth, not just hype.” Surely enough his prediction came to pass with the bitcoin crash of 2018 when over 430 billion dollars vanished out of the market.
He’s also not preoccupied with creating hundred pieces of content a day such as internet entrepreneurs like Gary Vee and many others. When asked why he simply stated “This is about quality, not quantity; in an age where you have the power to create quality content with actual value why create low quality repetitive messaging which pollutes the airways?”
The slogan for Mirza’s company Mirza Minds is an interesting one. “We find gaps in the market and build trampolines over them.” This team of forty-two focuses on solving the market dilemma and making a substantial difference. “I remember when we were building greenhouses in Illeret, Africa we taught the village people how to take care of the plants and maintain the greenhouse. With any project we build we focus on sustainability.”
This young entrepreneur has not only changed over 4.2 million lives around the world but he has solved real-world problems! Problems that would make life easier and more convenient for the everyday consumer.
I had the opportunity to sit with Fam Mirza and discuss the companies he’s built that received the attention of both the media and consumers.
While all have been impactful in their respective markets, the one that stands out is 1Face.
1Face wasn’t just any watch in the market. You’d even be curious as to why Mirza would enter such a competitive market but, he already understood that he has to come at a different angle that would both appeal the consumers but also make a difference to those in need.
With 1Face the strategy was to launch a brand selling affordable watches that would benefit the world. The watches came in different colors and each color represented a cause and charity it would benefit. Every time someone purchased a watch it was going to help someone on the other side of the world who had a specific need. Black watch for cancer research and treatments, red watch for AIDS treatments, and preventative education and so forth.
The consumer market saw that they had an opportunity to enjoy something they love while helping someone else who needed special help.
Because of this, 1Face has influenced over four million lives.
1Face reached a level of success that saw the company bring in tens of million of dollars in revenue in its first year.
Now Mirza is up to what he does best changing the world! His new enterprise is called Podwand by ThisCleans. He caught onto the fact that many people had problems cleaning their AirPods. Without hesitation, Mirza began jotting down concepts on how to solve this predicament. “The Airpod market is the fastest growing market to date with over 122 million Apple AirPods sold to date.” he states.
When you are in the business of selling a necessary product you need to be quick. Mirza once said, “The goal is to create innovative products which take over full market share before being replicated by China”.
He plans to put out his product with Hudson News, Target, Circkle-K, Wal-Mart, 7-11 and other similar retailers by the end of 2019. Before you try to replicate it know that he already has filed his patent.
He has also stated he is launching three other brands by the end of 2020. He would not state what those are yet but looking at his latest domain acquirements of dinky.com and lifeacademy.com we are sure they will disrupt the market.
But for now we are just excited to get our hands on the Podwand! Feel free to check out his site Podwands to be the first ones to try it.
