Mohammed Shakaoat, 28, helps stores reach over $280,000 in revenue after quitting his job as a state trooper to chase a career as his own boss.
“It was amazing,” says Shakaoat when asked about reaching the milestone.
His success led other Amazon business owners to look to him for help.
“At first, I was puzzled by the idea and I then started doing more research and found out it was a great business model,” says Shakaoat.
Shakaoat says he uses “virtual assistants” from other countries to manage the Amazon stores. However it was the partnership with fellow entrepreneurs Marcello Cantu, Paul Parker, and Andy Ta Kong, that made him millions.
The four created Project WiFi, an Amazon management company that manages Amazon stores for busy clients.
Together they manage over 55 high volume clients and Amazon stores using the dropshipping and FBA model by leveraging credit. All of their clients use credit to pay for the cost of goods sold by their “other people’s money” (OPM). The team also offers a mentorship program where they teach clients how to leverage credit to run an Amazon business.
He has always aspired to become his own boss. An active volunteer in his community, Shakaoat used every opportunity he could to help others. He migrated to Florida from Chittagong, Bangladesh when he was 13. While adapting to his new surroundings, volunteerism and sports helped ease the transition, often tutoring his peers or learning the value of teamwork as a kicker on his high school football team.
After a YouTube video explaining how to thrive in the ATM business autorolled on his computer, Shakaoat’s entrepreneurial spirit was starting to overtake his love for law enforcement. He soon later resigned from his job as a state trooper to learn more about a business he hoped would bring him the self-made success he dreamt of.
By 2016 he was running his own ATM business and has since expanded to 45 ATMs throughout Florida.
A YouTube video sparked his career in the ATM business, so he created his own channel with hopes of helping others replicate similar success. His posts regularly generated interest across the world and many suggested he create an in-depth course for those looking to expand their business.
Shakaoat created his second business “ATM Academy” (@atm__Academy), a course currently teaching more than 400 students how to follow in the footsteps of the ATM business guru.
After teaching aspiring entrepreneurs a new skill, he decided to expand his own repertoire of business, investing in Amazon dropshipping.
Although he was learning, Shakaoat credits his development in dropshipping to the connections he made with fellow entrepreneurs Andy Ta Kong, Marcello Cantu, and Paul Parker. The four joined together and created Project WiFi (@Projectwifi).
Project WiFi manages Amazon businesses for shares in client’s businesses. Together the company amassed over $19,000,000 in shares in just 9 months and became Shakaoat’s primary focus. They currently help over 55 clients run their accounts and are growing every day.
Shakaoat plans to continue to grow and learn more about his craft as Project WiFi (https://projectwifi.io/team) grows along with him.
