Kareem Assassa is a natural born entrepreneur. He left his last year of high school to join the workforce and acquired his first job as a cell phone salesman in a kiosk at a mall. He learned how to manage constant rejection in sales and thrived within the retail environment. His natural sales abilities lead him into medical diagnostic sales. At the age of 19, he became the youngest sales consultant for a medical diagnostic company in Beverly Hills and created a six-figure income by the end of his first year.
At the age of 22, Kareem Assassa decided to pursue one of his childhood dreams and started a professional production studio. He began producing, recording, and mastering music across several genres. He produced and recorded hundreds of tracks with recording artists from all over the world. Kareem began to cherish music more as a listener and invested most of his energy into his own professional development. Over the next several years, Kareem’s love for sales continued to thrive, as did a newfound hobby. While visiting his camera enthusiast cousins in Europe, Kareem was introduced to photography. He immediately immersed himself in it.
His new hobby quickly developed into a profitable passion so at the age of 25, Kareem Assassa started his second business. His photography became most popular amongst the affluent of Beverly Hills. He was often requested to photograph renowned entrepreneurs and key industry leaders. He befriended many of his clients and was wildly curious to learn about their journey to success. He sought mentorship and was inspired to pursue a college education. He immediately decided to pursue a degree in Organizational Leadership with a Specialization in Project Management and proudly graduated.
Motivated to apply his newly acquired knowledge, Kareem Assassa transitioned into a leadership role with a leading aesthetics training organization and expanded his professional network in Beverly Hills, California. His educational foundation served him well as he thrived in his role. Under his management, Kareem overhauled the entire operation and secured international partnerships that drove their academy into the global market.
With a heightened appreciation for operations and project management, Kareem revisited his love for entrepreneurship and helped co-found the world’s first pre-COVID online academy dedicated to the field of aesthetic medicine, dental aesthetics and cosmetic surgery training and reached his lifelong goal of earning a MBA shortly after.
Presently, he has been enjoying the process of helping professionals pursue their career goals through sales enablement for an innovative tech firm. Learn more about Kareem Assassa
