Omar Choudhury, aka OmarConnects, a 21-year-old entrepreneur from the UK has an inspiring story. Coming from humble beginnings to now running the number 1 Instagram branding agency, Omar’s journey is one a lot of us can take inspiration from. We delve down where he came from and what advice he gives to those looking at scaling their business.

The Story Of Omar

Despite Omar growing up in a low-income household, he was always hustling. Realizing at a young age, he could not let excuses get in the way of his dreams, Omar took on every piece of work he could get his hands on. From washing cars at age 10 to working long shifts at a café for only £3 an hour, Omar was building his skillset at a young age. He even was the go-to sweet seller in his high school, until the school found out and excluded him. However, that was just the start of his entrepreneurial mindset.  

In early 2020, Omar decided that solely working a 9-5 job could not sustain him or give his family the life they deserved, so he sought work online. It was here that Omar stuck a goldmine. With his ability to sell, Omar quickly ramped up quite the name for himself in the market and established himself as one of the best Instagram consultants in the industry. With the help of his amazing partners at Grow With Us, Omar’s team has taken over the Instagram scene with their branding service. 

Advice From Omar

Since deciding to drop out of his paid university degree, not only has Omar been able to help his mother pay off her mortgage, but he has helped thousands of individuals to understand how to monetize their brand online. Omar’s first piece of advice to new entrepreneurs is to build your brand first. “You can have the best product in the world, but if no one knows about you, how many sales are you making? 99% of the people you look up to have established brands online themselves, perhaps that was the reason you first followed them. It is simple logic, yet most people wonder why they are not seen any success using social media. Build yourself a credible brand first” Omar told us.

Omar’s second piece of advice is to get resourceful. Omar has found a lot of new entrepreneurs are reluctant to invest in themselves where they need to and that is the biggest reason most fail. “You can’t have a scarce mindset when it comes to money. You attract the energy you give off, so if someone can see that YOU are not willing to invest in yourself, why would they want to invest in you. Be the person you wish to attract. If you do not have the cash yourself, get resourceful: work a job, borrow money, leverage credit as I did. The hardest part is always starting, once you get over that, it gets easier,” Omar advises his audience. 

Take risks and ignore those who put you down is another piece of advice from Omar. “If you are like me and do not come from an entrepreneurial family or circle of friends, people aren’t going to understand it. You might see it as hate, it is probably just their confusion. A lot of your parents will tell you what they think is best for you, rather than what you know is best for you. My advice to those who struggle with this. Hustle lowkey and surprise your loved ones with a 5-star holiday. That’ll probably get them to support you” is what Omar told us he tells his teammates.

Whats Does Omar Have Planned? 

Despite Coronavirus being a reason, many people have put a stop to think they can make money, Omar has only scaled harder since. His work has generated over $1M in the last few months and he is not planning on slowing down. He plans on building Grow With Us to multi 8 figures, creating more 6 and 7 figure earners, and continuing to stay at the top. 

 It is crazy to see what Omar has accomplished and how he never let excuses get in his way. A life lesson to all those wanting to succeed themselves, successful people will not let anything stop them from achieving their goals.

The Role of Medicine in Achieving and Sustaining a Healthy Body Mass

The CDC’s latest numbers classify approximately 42 percent of Americans as obese, and over two-thirds of American adults qualify as either obese or overweight. Living with excess weight heightens people’s risk for debilitating and chronic but otherwise preventable conditions like stroke, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

With new weight-loss drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy on the rise, many are wondering if these medications live up to their hype and can even help end the obesity epidemic. Sergio Padron, founder and CEO of online healthcare and weight-loss support company MD Exam, believes they can — up to a point.

“It’s important to approach these medications with a thorough understanding of what they can and can’t do,” Padron says. “Magic pills for weight loss don’t exist.”

The importance of achieving a healthy body mass

According to Padron, achieving and sustaining a healthy body mass is key to good health. To obtain your body mass index (BMI), online calculators like this one from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute ask for your height and weight, run them through the standard formula, and generate your score. The last step is to find this number in the standardized ranges considered underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese.

“Many healthcare professionals use the body mass index (BMI) for a quick approximation of most people’s health,” he explains. “All you need is the patient’s weight and height, and you can calculate this number.”

There are exceptions, however. “In particular, bodybuilders and other athletes can generate results that make it seem like they aren’t healthy, when in fact they’re in excellent condition,” Padron explains. “That’s because BMI doesn’t consider muscle mass, and muscle is more dense than fat. In addition, BMI doesn’t account for visceral fat being more dangerous than fat deposits elsewhere in the body.”

That’s why Padron cautions people not to make snap judgments based on BMI alone and to seek a more comprehensive view from healthcare professionals. “Factors like body composition, blood markers, and lifestyle need to be considered,” he explains, “which is one of the many reasons why we only offer individualized care at MD Exam.”

If your BMI falls in the overweight or obese categories, then it’s time to make a change. “Unfortunately, excess body weight means you could be developing major health problems that you otherwise wouldn’t,” Padron says. “Being overweight has also been associated with depression. In my experience, it can have a negative impact on self-esteem and even lead to the development of eating disorders.”

Luckily, groundbreaking new drugs have become available to help people recover their quality of life.

How Ozempic and Wegovy can help

According to Padron, pharmaceutical solutions like Ozempic and Wegovy can help most people achieve and sustain a healthy body mass. These medications reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness, thereby enabling people to regulate their consumption better.

“One of the most important things our patients report is that they’re no longer tormented by cravings,” Padron says. “They find it easier to avoid overeating in the first place.”

In addition, Ozempic and Wegovy have been shown to decrease visceral fat — the dangerous kind of fat deposits. “The idea is to optimize health and well-being, not just lose weight,” Padron says. “We want to make sure you lose the right pounds. When you lose visceral fat and keep muscle, you are heading in the right direction and your body composition improves.”

In some rare cases, however, Ozempic and Wegovy aren’t effective. “Luckily, other interventions can be effective in those cases, such as Tirzepatide or classic weight-loss drugs,” Padron says.

Yet Padron emphasizes that weight-loss drugs alone are insufficient to achieve and sustain a healthy body mass.

Personalized, comprehensive support

“Just taking a pill won’t make pounds disappear,” Padron says. “To lose weight, it’s necessary to get real about your lifestyle and actually change your habits. If you haven’t been exercising, for instance, then it’s time to start getting up a little earlier and going for a morning walk. If you haven’t been eating well, then it’s time to stop buying soda and junk food.”

Easier said than done? “We know it’s hard,” Padron says. “That’s why our program takes support seriously. Our medical staff works with patients one-on-one to develop treatment plans that will work for them. We also provide coaching and connect patients to each other for mutual support and accountability. MD Exam is a community. People make friends for life on our platform.”

Lose weight, feel great

Obtaining a healthy body mass often leads to increased energy levels, improved mobility, and reduced joint pain. It can also help control chronic conditions like high blood pressure and sleep apnea, as well as forestall the development of preventable diseases. If that isn’t already enough, it can also boost patients’ self-confidence and mental health.

“Our patients experience an incredible feeling of accomplishment and empowerment,” Padron says. “Losing weight can be truly transformative. I can’t tell you how many people have told me their whole outlook on life has become more positive.”

For Padron, helping people lose weight is its own reward. “I love watching people shed their depression and come back to life,” he says. “This is the most rewarding work I can imagine.”
