How do i got my First Website Order in 2002
I was born in Faisalabad, Pakistan. I have completed schooling in the same city. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Politics from The University of Faisalabad. After getting my Bachelor’s degree, my mind was boggling about a career, where should I go now? I got hell bored with Politics completely, I was unable to choose my stream, then I came at the final point after a lot of painstaking struggle.
I also love the computer science. So, I decided to go with this stream. Right after 18 months learning the code I got a dev job with a low-budget agency. I was thrilled because I got the desired job relevant to my stream that company was about websites, apps and hybrid mobile apps. My very first Job was a Static plus Flash Based Website for Local Entrepreneur Clothing Trader “Vicco Fabrics” in 2002. At the same place, I have got an offer of a job from another company because of my website developing skills. I applied there and got a call of an interview on Friday. In the next two days, I have got an Email from that company, I was just happy as a box of birds while reading it.
I was working there for a switch-on in a job, and I didn’t like a company who was functioning low on money. I started freelancing in Jun 2oo5 from the Freelancer.com platform then, now I freelance full-time.
Dense moment as an Entrepreneur to date
I once had a type ‘A’ personality client, and he sent out an email for his work. He wanted me to done right away. Miserably, at the same time, I had to balance numerous projects. So, he would have to wait up a day. But he was not willing to hold on a day, I worked with full stressed and concerned. I figured it out that I was not giving him what he actually wanted from my end. All thoughts were traveling in my head. I lost my temper for some time.
In the end, his project was a success, and he was hanky-panky with the happy result, but it was the hardest grindstone. Just like keep one’s nose to the grindstone. Time management was the toughest one for me while handling a lot of projects one by one or simultaneously.
Being a freelancer, I realized that I can also be able to create projects, try different and up to date ideas, make handsome money, and many more.
Now I have my own online setup in Faisalabad, Pakistan called as Shmai.com, specializing in back-end and front-end development, with freelancing. Currently, I am working with USA / Canada / UK based SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises). Now people know me as a Start-Up Consultant, Technopreneur, Web Engineer, Trainer, Traveller and Specialized digital marketer.
This is my painstaking struggling story from 2002 to till now.
