Two years back, I felt that majority of youngsters and professionals cannot write their convincing and compelling CVs. I tried to help them as a part of my CSR initiative. The number of people requesting me to improve their CVs started increasing and it literally became impossible for me to cater to their requests. I saw a gap and filled it by introducing our Guerrilla CV concept. Today, we have 6 content writers who work 30 days a month and 12 hours a day. We still carry a backlog of 10 days.
Being “always accessible and willing to help”, many people approach me for job hunting in Dubai. I introduce people to my contacts. But how many people can I help in this capacity? My team did thorough research on best job hunting practices. We compiled those tactics and started selling “Guerrilla Job Hunting Tactics for Dubai”.
Daily, I receive emails from students who want my help/advice to get admission in foreign universities. I am not sure but it seems our next service will be Foreign University Admission Advisory Services. Recently, I was contacted by foreign universities to help them sell their educational services in Pakistan.
If you have money and don’t have business ideas, look around and see problems and challenges people face and make their life comfortable with your services. That is business.
PS: My major business is still Sales Trainings and Recruitment Consultancy.
