    • Careers

On today’s show, we interview the incredible Faraz Khan who shares his distilled wisdom on entrepreneurship, tenacity, and relationship building. 


Faraz’s single-minded focus has earned him the Rookie Operator of the Year award. 


So, how did Faraz manage to get a leg up on his extremely competitive and high-performing peers? And how did he manage to hit his goals in a year ravaged by the pandemic?


We start this show with Faraz sharing his background story. Originally from Pakistan, Faraz moved to Canada back in 2013. He dropped out of high school so that he could support his family. But he soon realized that he would never meet his goals if he kept on working 9 to 5.


So, when he came across the Student Works opportunity, he was immediately stoked that he could be his own boss while running a large painting business.


Faraz shares WHY Student Works has been a life-changing opportunity for him. Being in the Student Works fold has taught Faraz some lifelong lessons in relationship building, accountability, and goal setting.


Particularly, Faraz shares how he learned to build and manage a dream team that could function in a hands-off manner.


You will also learn how Faraz managed to pivot fast and completely rework his sales practices once the pandemic broke out.


This is a show that you do not want to miss. Enjoy!
