Highlights of our Exciting Experience at 'Pakistan Festival 2014'


Online Business - A Love AffairCovering institutes across the country with the message of entrepreneurship and youth awareness, is an obligation that STC Network is trying our best to fulfill for the past 5 years. Communicating with a qualified public is indeed a simple task but conveying your message in simple words to an excited crowd of thousands consisting of mostly school children and housewives in national language was the toughest challenge of all. Pakistan Festival 2014 has therefore become the most memorable event of my life where we learnt a lot. Pakistan Helpline in association with Talib e Ilm Society, Anima and students across Karachi had organized a successful event on 23rd March 2014 at EXPO center, to share the spirit of being a devoted and loyal Pakistani. People from across the city participated in it including Nisar Ahmed khuhro (former Speaker of the Provincial Assembly of Sindh) , Dr Fauzia Siddiqui requires no introduction, Altaf Shakoor (President Pasban), Abid Beli, city Police commissioner, ARY TV Anchor Iqrar Ul Hasan (Host Sare Aam), Celeb Faisal Qureshi, Syed Qaiser Mehmood, NGO heads and a lot more amongst guests.

 

A Video Message

Just after the presentation, I realized how difficult it was presenting in front of school students who were new to complex business terminologies and the term entrepreneurship was more like a scary word than a phenomena for these sweet little kids  so I ignored all power point slides that I prepared along with a motivational video and decided to talk in desi style, presenting our point of view as simple as we could. Amazingly - This crowd proved to be even more interesting than we expected and we enjoyed a lot!

Sharing some additional views in the video below:

Topic

"Online Business - A Love Affair"

Following were the core topics of the presentation:

  1. Types of Online businesses

  2. Blunt Lies being told at School, Colleges and Universities!

  3. Your Priceless Assets, resources and their smart use.

  4. The Fake Earning Mechanisms Online and the Black Giants

  5. Black Hat Techniques - concept of Halal and Haram Earning.

  6. Underground world of Freelancing Communities - Good/Bad Realties

  7. Blogging, Blogosphere - The Misuse

  8. The underestimated Golden Eggs!

  9. Advertising Networks - PPC, CPA, CPC, CPM etc.

  10. Art of Web Development and Mobile Development

  11. Affiliate Marketing - The Working strategies

  12. Some Funny yet practical real life stories!

But after observing that the crowd was more a type of entertainment-loving, I pushed back all the above elements of the talk and narrowed it down to a fun loving discussion based on educating students, youth and housewives with the idea of Online Earning, making a lucrative income online from their living room. By quoting famous examples of Summly application, whatsapp to local examples of home business, the crowd seemed to loved this approach and easily digest the message which we wanted to deliver.

Mystery Gifts!

We had made some extra plans this time for gift distribution. It's a convention that we often distribute gifts amongst active participants who answer to questions related to the talk. This time we brought two gifts with us. The small gift hamper consisted of a Fabric material and the jumbo size included a digital device.

When asked which gift would she love to prefer, Mam Farzana wished to have the Fabric one which seemed more like a Silk Dress to her! =) I called her to stage and told everyone that this gift is the most precious one of anything that we have distributed so far and it's the most expensive gift one could have. I asked Mam farzana to open it her self. As she slowly moved up her hand, the crowd and media present there were shocked with excitement to have discovered a hidden Country flag inside the gift hamper! Colored with White and Green. Rest what followed were slogans and dozens of photos which captured this memorable moment for you all!

It was indeed the best moment of my life to have gifted the country flag to a hard working Pakistani Housewife. This gift is far above our status but it is only love that can buy it. I shared a touching story behind this flag in public which I can't online and I pray to God that we may lift it  up again with honor and dignity and share its colors with the rest of the world.

The other gift was honored to this talented guy:

2014 is a hectic year. It's the same year when we organized STCnetwork's first mega project by the Name "Unexplored Success Treasures"  and travelled all the way to Islamabad to spread love, joy and awareness. It is the same year when we came across this exciting experience of Pakistan Festival and realized that we badly missed spreading our voice in rural population and it is the same year when I will be no more single! Yes that is right, my journey from a paper boy to an entrepreneur completed this year Alhamdulillah and the journey of a responsible  married man would start on April 12 inshAllah. Fingers crossed! :>

Its your love and prayers that brought us to this stage and Allah subhanawatAllah's blessings. No matter what I do, I will never be able to pay back what you guys have given me buddies. May you all have the best in life, succeed in your endeavors and make the nation proud wherever you go. Life is a short journey, utilize every second of it the best you can. Every second awaits you and every new sunrise has a surprise for you. Ups and downs are part of life and we all face that, but great minds never give up and they keep moving forward fighting all circumstances. Success is a mixture of Patience, modesty and Hard work. If you maintained all these ingredients in life, you will find love and respect everywhere. I wish I live up to that also and pray to God I may never forget that day when I used to sell shopping bags in a Sunday Bazar.

Peace and blessings be on you all buddies. =)

  10. Bro just one line of whole article made me emotional, that a child who sold shopping bags now became a Top Entrepreneur of Pakistan.

    By God I have no words no words to write anything about yourself. May Allah Bless you many many more!

    And now this line became 100% true, the people that don't forget their past always becomes a successful person.

    1. It's indeed a truth dear Usman. We often look at people and think they have achieved that stage overnight but their is always a background story behind every human being's success. The best inspiration is always your parents and then people around.

      With that true intentions, I am sure you are having a great future ahead. I am waiting for that day when you will make us all proud and surely that day is near if you work hard. My best wishes with you and everyone who works hard :)

  14. Mustafa Bhaai. I am literally stunned and speechless! No amount of words can ever express my feelings! To have achieved so much, and to earn so much love and respect is truly nothing short of a miracle. And while I am appreciative of how humbly you present yourself, you do not do yourself justice! You're a true inspiration for people like me, and may you have the very best in this life and the life hereafter Amen.

    I really loved your gesture of giving gifts, and even though I am only reading about it without having experienced it live, I must say I am shocked and awed at the gesture of presenting the National Flag to a hardworking person! Being a patriot, tears have literally welled up in my eyes as I consider the implications, which are huge! Most people will prefer an electronic device over a piece of cloth, but to me, it is the Ultimate gift to give someone, and I can only wish I had been there to witness the occasion, or better yet, to get a gift like that! :P A salute to the lady for going for the 'piece of cloth' instead of the other gift, all that glitters is not gold. PAKISTAN ZINDABAD!

    Also, really happy to see you're getting married and taking up the responsibility of running a family. Give my best to bhaabi :))

    May Allah grant you both eternal peace and blessing, and always pave your way to success in this life and the life of the hereafter. Amen

    1. Qasim I had never expected that you would be that much moved and throughout these 3 years journey with you, I had never received such a sweet feedback from you as this one. I am touched too now. Thank you for making my day. :)

      The funny part about that flag was that even I wanted Mam farzana to go for the digital device but I didn't know how her attention turned towards this beautiful gift. That moment was really a memorable one Qasim. It was covered with standing posture of respect by all, along with slogans of Pakistan and whistles at every corner.

      That wedding card will soon hit your door, be ready with your bags and luggage. Want you and Hassam here in karachi by hook or crook :)

      May Allah keep us all happy and devoted to life. Honored to have the best writer and blogger as my friend. :)
