Failure is a good teacher. It’s just the rite of passage of a great entrepreneur. –Omar Zenhom
With a lot of businesses on the side before he went fulltime. Business Republic and $100 MBA coincided with Omar’s fulltime entrepreneurship. He started those businesses with the other sites was because he did have some experience of starting businesses and some people were asking, “How do you start a business online?” “How do you these things?” He wanted to be able to serve these people, “Well, there must be a need in the market for this…” so he built a business around it.
Omar’s One Idea

“…in education, they call escape creativity at the doorstep….It’s not a place where creativity is cultivated. I started to get disillusioned by my career because I wanted to do things, I wanted to get more creative, I wanted to expand my horizons…I started to get more experience as an entrepreneur on the side, both sides plus the inspiration of that book, as well as many other books. I started to seriously think that I should do this fulltime.”
