Aqeeb Farooq is a teenage entrepreneur from the UK who started off by selling items on eBay to make some money on the side alongside his studies and has now helped hundreds of people online make money and signed contracts with brands…
His journey began at the age of 16 after he had done his exams for the year and wanted to make some money instead of being lazy during his summer holidays. He had tried many ideas out but failed to make progress and was on the verge of giving up. He came across selling on eBay and liked the idea of it so decided to give it a try, luck was on his side as he woke up with sales and from then on it only went in the right way for him. After selling on eBay for a year and learning all the aspects about it, he decided to create an online course for others to get on board and take the opportunity of making money, little did he know that as years went by, he has now helped over 265 people from 20 different countries across the world with achieving $150k client sales.
Aqeeb’s journey only started with just listing items on eBay and then turned into helping hundreds of people make money online. As his social media presence started to grow, he had interest from international brands wanting to expand further on eBay with their sales. As Aqeeb is studying at university, he decided to take on a contract with a brand and expects to take more on very soon as he gets more time, but also has plans for new projects…
What motivates you to keep on going?
“I think it’s just the feeling of freedom and not having to work 9-5 to make some money alongside my studies. It gives me a better advantage to focus on my studies knowing I don’t have to worry about money. I can also focus on other projects and investments etc.” @aqeebfarooq (Instagram)
Do you think you will continue with eBay dropshipping and offering your online course?
“For now, I will keep on offering my services to everyone as well as any brands. I do have my other hustles on the side that I will focus on but for now, I will take everything as it comes, I will never disregard getting a job as it’s an income stream and a lot of people rush to get out of it but are still trapped in the system, but let’s see what the future holds.” @aqeebfarooq (Instagram)
