Over the past 21 years, Usama Shaharyar has been on the career pathway where he helped several people and made a name for himself. Although his official journey started with becoming a project leader in Marctel Technologies, he got the essence of work right when he was in 11th grade.
His dad has been a great helping hand in pushing Usama Shaharyar towards a better work experience. How? Right, when he was in 11th grade, his father pushed him to tutor 10th-grade students, which was just the starting point. Soon after completing his engineering degree, Usama started teaching 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade students. He also started tutoring 1st year engineering students. As time passed, his teachings got liked by more people, and there was a time when he used to teach 200 students a day after opening a teaching centre.
That was not it. He also opened up a high school with his father, showing his business journey right from university times. As per Usama Shaharyar, “I can say my entrepreneurship journey started when I was an intermediate and engineering student. Well, for beginners I can suggest that they should follow their passion.“

We also faced cash flow issues due to delays in the client payments. The only thing we do to overcome these issues is to be consistent with dedication. “
Along with dedication, we believe that a team also has a role in the phase when businesses face challenges. That’s why we had a question for Usama, “Does employees’ energy and enthusiasm have a hand in business success? How do you plan to motivate your team to go the extra mile?“
Usama says, “Of course, employees’ positive energy and enthusiasm do affect business success. If the employees are not motivated, they work half-heartedly thereby affecting the business outcome. We motivate employees by providing a healthy environment where the staff gets a family-oriented culture. In addition, we do provide a competitive salary with incentives. We also compensate the staff with career growth and financial perks for additional efforts, better performance, and reaching their targets.“
