About Faheem:

Faheem Moosa began his career in management on the factory floor at the age of 20. Given the challenge of leading and managing a clothing export & manufacturing group which employed over 1,000 people, Faheem’s highly conscientious and hands-on approach led him to implement a wide range of programs which increased productivity & revenues and decreased costs – all while managing the group’s day-to-day activities.

After this successful management experience, Faheem’s intellectual curiosity and yearning to further explore business led him to complete his MBA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship at the renowned Richard Ivey School of Business, Western University (London, Ontario) in 2007.

Immediately prior to founding his management consultancy, Springboarders, in 2009, Faheem honed his strategic planning skills at LEVEL5 Strategy Group Toronto, one of Canada’s premier strategy consulting firms. Faheem’s clients included Fortune 100 companies such as Assicurazioni Generali and others including Research In Motion and Canada Post.

As a strategic business consultant, Faheem has helped 100+ SMB and non-profit clients (B2B and B2C) across 30 industries grow and thrive. He created The Consulting Mastery System to help his fellow consultants attract a predictable stream of high-paying, ideal clients and build thriving consulting businesses they can run from anywhere in the world.

06:30 “In entrepreneurship, you’re responsible for yourself.” – Daniel Gomez

11:15 “If you don’t shift that identity, from the technical aspect to seeing yourself as a successful business owner, you’re never going to be successful in business.” – Daniel Gomez

12:40 “If you don’t know who you are, you’re never going to establish the roots in a business that you need to really succeed.”– Daniel Gomez

14:12 “As a business owner, you need to learn about sales and marketing, because it’s not a one time thing. Businesses change overnight, the economy changes overnight. Things keep changing, you need to have those skills to change along with the tide and grow your business.” – Faheem Moosa

15:35 “You have to go out there and learn how to sell yourself. You have to make yourself aware and give yourself exposure.” – Daniel Gomez
