If you consider yourself a millennial, you likely remember the good old days of classic MTV and reality television shows that were the source of envy for all who watched. The rock stars in their music videos and the rich kids in their expensive houses on shows like “Cribs” were the talk of the nation’s teenagers.
Nafeel Ahmed, multi-faceted entrepreneur and businessman, has taken it upon himself to change the way that we view the finer things in life. While many may see luxury vehicles and yachts as unobtainable, Nafeel views them as opportunities. Alongside his several other successful businesses, he owns and operates a rental company for individuals who hope to utilize these glamorous cars and boats for their next photoshoot, music video, or party.
This business is just one of many for Nafeel, as he has worked hard for his entire life, building the enterprise that he currently maintains. He also works alongside other small business owners and influencers to teach them the ins and outs of marketing strategies in order to maximize growth.
Nafeel works to provide support and comfort to his family, which has recently grown. The entrepreneur welcomed a son at the end of 2022 and he is excited to be a shining example to him of what a success story looks like. Coming from a family that chose not to support his endeavors, Nefeel values the idea of a dream becoming reality, against all odds.
“I’m really proud about my entrepreneurial journey and how far I have come,” Nafeel says. “I will always keep working hard and continue to grow in all aspects of my life, especially financially, spiritually, and more.”
Even within the industry of nightclubs and VIP lounges, Nafeel Ahmed finds himself ahead of the game, going on seven years strong as the owner of Ibiza Bar and Lounge in Atlanta, Georgia. Ibiza celebrates its success as a transformative gathering place where all are welcome. The young bar owner is hoping to dive further into catering to bring a new audience into the space where they may not have existed previously. In addition, Nafeel wants to operate in a similar way as his luxury car rental company and allow patrons to rent out Ibiza as a place for private events and parties, as well as the location for music videos and other multimedia projects.
Nafeel takes pride in his efforts as an entrepreneur, giving his talents a place to turn a profit, where others may simply find themselves settling comfortably into their simple lives. Nafeel prefers to grow his businesses, one after another as he watches the way that each one gathers massive success.
“I find inspiration from seeing other people’s success,” he reflects. “I enjoy taking the time to read about success stories and business people like myself. I like listening to their podcasts and learning from their stories, as well as from my own mistakes.”
Nafeel also attributes a portion of his success to his ability to recognize opportunity and take risks when the need arises. Additionally, he owns a marketing social media management company where he helps other businesses expand using one of the most powerful marketing tools. His understanding of advertisement and marketing allows for continued growth, in any passion that he decides to turn a profit within.
