For Iranian Millionaire Rhinopreneur Ali Zamany, the American dream was all about transforming setbacks into success through goal setting and hard work. Due to the difficult situation in his home country, he came to America as a refugee with his family and it definitely paid off.
“At the beginning it wasn’t easy at all, I thought a hundred of times about giving up and quitting. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon. More like a plastic spoon.“” he recalls.
Discipline and hardwork are words that describe Ali. He is also well known as a Rhinopreneur, term that comes from combining the words Rhinoceros and Entrepreneur. Combined with the unwavering character one must have as an entrepreneur, it is a word that can only be used to describe serial entrepreneur and world class sales coach, Ali Zamany, who has used his skills to achieve over $1 billion dollars in sales. And yes, that’s a billion with a B.
“My life changed at the age of 19 when I got a job in a startup going door to door, and I ended up making about $50,000 dollars during the summer. Making that kind of money at an early age is life changing, so when it was time for me to go back to school, I decided to drop out,” he added.
Zamany started working for a Canadian-based natural and electricity retailer that operates in North America. There, he earned the experience and skills needed to reach the highest position within their sales department, getting to manage 14 offices, and generating 1.4 billion dollars in revenues for the company.In addition, he was earning a big percentage of the commission, which led him to the peak of his career.
Zamany had it all at the time. He was married and had 3 kids. “It was the best time of my life, economically, physically, marritally, emotionally, spiritually. My life was simply perfect,” shares Ali Zamany.
But life, as we know it, has its ups and downs.
The company that he was working for decided to go public. This meant having to let Mr. Zamany go so that the company could save expenses as it expanded to new markets.
This is when the Rhinopreneur came to be.
Mr. Zamany had to embark on his own as an entrepreneur, launching 3 companies, all at the same time. “I have never been a business owner before, but at this point I started considering myself an entrepreneur. However, instead of starting one business, I decided to start three business at the same time,” he adds.
“I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as overnight success but there is such a thing as losing everything overnight,” he states.
In 2018, thanks to Mr. Zamany’s determination, discipline, and hard work, his companies skyrocketed, bringing in a combined total of 20 million in profits that year.
“I thought it was going to be easy and I literally almost lost everything in my life, but now I am running big figure companies and I am married to my best friend Christina. I have 2 boys and 2 girls, I have two businesses , I went from broke to millionaire back to broke and now working my way back up again,” he shares.
Today, this Rhinopreneur is no longer interested in personal achievement. Instead, he is focusing on contributing and empowering others who are looking to learn from their failures and achieve wealth (in every sense of the word) in the process.
“I don’t want more money but I want to empower, inspire, make a change and I know there is a bigger purpose. I don’t know where, when or how, but I do know the why,” says Mr. Ali Zamany.
