Fast and Friendly Service with a Smile

One of the big advantages I have is the ability to offer fast and friendly service. While larger companies have lots of layers between their customers and the people who are actually fixing the phones, I'm able to interact directly with my customers.

When Jamee Sheikh was admitted to the hospital for a life-threatening condition (HELLP syndrome), she didn't know if she would ever see her family again. But after she spent a harrowing week in the hospital, she received the amazing news that she was indeed going to live. Since coming face-to-face with death is one of the few experiences that can completely change someone's outlook on life, Jamee decided that she didn't want to retreat. Instead, she decided to grab the reins and take full control of her future.

"Because I spent them building valuable skills, I don't have any regrets about the last eight years I spent working as a networking and PC repair employee," Sheikh said. "And even though it would be easy to only look at the negative side of what happened to me, I felt like it was a sign that the time was right to for me to venture out on my own."

Thanks to inspiration from books like Cal Newport's So Good They Can't Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love, which focuses on using the skills you've already honed to open new doors for yourself, Sheikh decided to take her extensive experience as a technician and open her own iPhone repair company.

"One of the big advantages I have is the ability to offer fast and friendly service. While larger companies have lots of layers between their customers and the people who are actually fixing the phones, I'm able to interact directly with my customers," Sheikh explained. She went on to say, "Since a broken phone is a very stressful experience, people truly appreciate knowing that they're going to get fast service instead of the runaround. It makes me so happy that I'm able to do something that enables people to stay in touch with their loved ones and continue running their own businesses."

As a result of the personalized service that's at the center of her business strategy, Sheikh is confident that word of mouth referrals will play a major role in the growth of her business. But she also knows it's best not to put all your eggs in one basket. That's why she's also actively engaged in online marketing. Sheikh explained that "by utilizing strategies like social media marketing and high-quality guest blogging, I know that even though it's just me right now, I can establish a strong name for myself and a trusted brand for my business."
