This is Shahroz Babar, A Shopify Virtual Assistant By Practices & Civil Engineer By Degree, I’m from a Well Educated Family but a Job Addicted, I had a hard time throughout my education till Simple Graduation (B.A). I belonged to a Middle-Class Family but not now Alhamdulillah.
I never had a computer education from any institute but I had the zeal to learn & explore it but I could not afford it till my 11th standard. In 2012, when I was in the 2nd Year of My Civil Engineering, I bought a P4 Computer and managed the Internet Connection somehow and started to play with google browsing for the next 4 years till 2016 and with every passing day, Web research became my Passion and I learned to manage Shopify and Pos Software
The Lucky day of June 2016
Through Browsing, I applied for the Job of In-Office Shopify Manager in Abu Dhabi, and I GOT IT, The Company named Ebarza Invited me and Bore all the Visa & Ticket expenses. I spent 2 Years in UAE as a Shopify Manager & Warehouse Supervisor.
Why & How I Started Freelancing?
In the Last Months of My Job, during a normal routine day. I found my junior working on a site named PeoplePerHour. I asked him what is this and why are you browsing it? He refused to share with me and neglected me. but I saved the PPH in my mind.
The Next day, I made researches on the site and I came to know about freelancing and how does it work. I signed up for PPH, but I failed to achieve anything. Due to Family issues, I had to quit the job in UAE and I came back to my homeland in Pakistan in 2018.
After coming back I remained jobless for almost 6 months, during this period, I did not leave the researches and then Facebook introduced me to another Big Freelancing Site named Fiverr through the freelancing community. I also got introduced by the name of a known person (Hisham Sarwar) because in those days he was very active to respond instantly so he also deserves my prayers and appreciation.
I signed up for Fiverr and applied all possible methods to enhance my profile which I learned from Facebook groups and youtube channels.
Boom… First-order on Fiverr..
29 Days Later, after creation my Fiverr account, I got my first order of $20, and that was a huge achievement and enough for me to get started for a new journey, In those days, nobody from My Family could imagine that it works? how can someone earn money while sitting at home? how can someone withdraw dollars?
It took a few months for my family to understand, that it is real, it works. I earned $900 in the first year of my freelancing.
Upwork Mastery- After Fiverr, I headed to Upwork, and I also succeeded in it, I became Top Rated within a year and earned 1 Million+pkr. through International Clients.
The Secret of SUCCESS
The only key behind my success is not the skills of Virtual or Physical Shopify Manager but it is COMMUNICATION SKILL, that how to deal with international clients. the key duties are following
- How to Start Dealing With Clients
- How to Introduce Yourself
- Why He should hire you
- What best you can do for the client
- How to admire your product or skill
- How you will solve the client’s problem
Freelancing Mentoring But Criticised
After becoming an Expert & Earning a Good Amount, I started Helping everyone through Facebook groups & personal inboxes, I remained available for everyone most of the time for tips and solutions to problems.
But due to the huge number and requests, I could not manage the time to respond to everyone, you may better understand.
When People insisted I train them from scratch to advance level through live sessions, I started asking them for fees, because I had to put time and make them trained. Only 25% understood my concerns about the fee and the rest 75% rebooked me and blamed me, they told me that I should train them like Hisham Sarwar and should not charge,
They blackmailed me that I should train them or they will post against me that I’m charging for it like it is a crime. and few people did it, I faced a lot
but I did not have the channel or recorded content because I was not experienced in Recordings & Youtube.
Then I Started My Own training Center in My City. I’m training eCommerce(Shopify) & Freelancing (Fiverr+Upwork)
People were right, that they don’t afford fees for training because they are very new in it.
I also was on the right that I’m spending my time to train and I should charge.
Then I realized that I also should not charge For Training & I started My Youtube Channel to Train Freelancing to Everyone
My Own Shopify Store in Australia
After a long period of 4 years from 2016 to 2020, I started my own Shopify Store in Australia using My Skills & Experience. and by the Grace of ALLAH ALMIGHTY, I succeeded in that as well, right now I’m selling in Australia via my Shopify Store While being at my home in a small town & earning a good amount ALHAMDULILLAH.
Never Quit Learning If you Want Earning- During all this period till this second, I do the same, awake the whole night and work and hunt for new clients and make researches on new things on the Internet.
Because I want to be updated with the World, Otherwise World will leave me behind with my outdated skills. Everything has a new update with every passing day.
Don’t Cheat Anyone, Don’t Snatch Anyone’s Bite, Don’t Push Back Anyone for your own sake, and then you’ll see you’re receiving everything for which you are not capable.
ALLAH is watching your efforts, HE WILL BLESS YOU FOR SURE for your good doings, InshaALLAH.
