Justin J. Allen: The Ability to Find Business Opportunity in Everything

Recently, we had the unexpected pleasure of sitting down with one of our favorite entrepreneurs on the scene today, Justin J. Allen. For those of you just now hearing about Justin, he founded his first LLC back in 2013, in the world of executive security services, and has since managed to build it into an uber-impressive multi-million-dollar company. Not only that, but Allen also now helms a successful sports agency, in the form of DA Method Sports Agency, a related fitness clothing brand, DA Method Apparel (along with his business partners Darryl Wilson & James “AJ” Mason), and is preparing to launch his own barbershop, Premier Cutz, and adjacent bar, the Premier Lounge.

And in our little sit-down, when we asked him what his secret skill was, Justin correctly pointed at the ability to “find business opportunities in everything”. And judging from his impressive catalogue of successful business ventures, we can safely say he wasn’t kidding. While it’s true that the very concept of entrepreneurship speaks of versatility and adaptability, it’s still rare to find an entrepreneur with so many successful businesses in so many different areas of work. So, it’s fair to assume Allen does indeed possess a sixth sense for sensing business possibilities, one that he’s keen on sharing with young entrepreneurs in need of guidance.

According to Allen, he’s always been an entrepreneur at heart, though naturally, he too went through his fair share of disappointment, bad jobs, professional conflicts, and so on. And during that time, as well as in the first years of his career as an entrepreneur, he learned the importance of having a role-model. Someone there to guide you and steer you in the right direction. Not tell you where to go, because at the end of the day, being an entrepreneur isn’t about that, but rather, about finding your own values and your own path.

That’s what Allen is now looking to do for young entrepreneurs in need of a mentor – provide a helping hand, a word of advice, or even some guidance. And while a sixth sense for business opportunities can’t really be grown, it can be nurtured and developed, under the careful, watchful eye of an experienced mentor like Allen. It’s one thing to realize what businesses have potential and which don’t, and it’s nothing short of remarkable. Still, that’s not all a young entrepreneur will need to succeed in this world. They will also need help identifying what matters to them and finding their true entrepreneurial path.

Now, having established multiple successful businesses of his own, Justin J. Allen is in a place from which he can focus on giving. Naturally, he confided in us, he’s still got his eye on his own development and journey as an entrepreneur, but he has also reached a place in his career where he can help other individuals start their own business, and why not multiple businesses, like him. To show them, perhaps, that yes, entrepreneurship is a hard road, but that’s one of the things Allen loves best about it.

“Your level of success depends on you and how much work you put in. You can create your own schedule. You can decide what business you want to create; you have the ability to provide opportunities for people, The challenge is to stay current with the times.”

Why Kareem Hassan believes self-employment is the key to true freedom

To those working a 9-to-5, self-employment often presents itself as a daunting choice; there is a considerable risk involved but, at the same time, a lot of freedom to be enjoyed. On the other hand, freelancers and entrepreneurs also have to deal with ‘clients from hell’ at times, making them question whether self-employment was the right choice. According to Kareem Hassan, whatever be your view of being your own boss, you cannot deny the freedom that comes along with it. Here, he explains why he believes self-employment is the key to true freedom.

Kareem Hassan runs a 3D printing service and trades collectibles, which have catapulted him into immeasurable success. From early on, Kareem knew that he wanted to be his own boss; he wasn’t cut out for the 9-to-5 grind. Fueled by his passion for entrepreneurship, he began working to create a business where he could truly love and enjoy what he does.

True success to Kareem means freedom, both financial and time. It also means the freedom to be able to share your knowledge with others and to do what you want, when you want. In addition to running his business, Kareem Hassan has also ventured into creating digital art and investing in NFTs. He says that all this would not have been possible had he been working a regular 9-to-5. Instead, he would be stuck doing the same tasks with minimal returns and an even lower growth ceiling.

Another reason why Kareem Hassan vouches for self-employment is that it enables you to retire early. According to Hassan, being your own boss gives you the freedom to stop when you think you’ve accumulated enough wealth and secured enough investments. Once you achieve what you want and have your financial future secured, you can retire from work and pursue anything you want in life.

When he first got started, Kareem Hassan was not sure where this journey would lead him, but he had a firm conviction to see it to the end. He dropped out of college after two years to take care of his family. He began by investing the little he had in collectibles like comic books, rare items, trading cards, and toys. Seeing an opportunity when the popularity of comic books regained momentum in pop culture, Kareem jumped at it and established his business.

According to Kareem, besides success, freedom is the greatest thing about self-employment. Your time is your most valuable asset, and having time freedom is like having a blank canvas; you can fill it with anything you want and create magic. Knowing this, Kareem Hassan says that he wouldn’t trade that freedom for anything. He also points out that self-employment lets you choose the people you surround yourself with and create diverse networks.

Even as he explains these benefits, Kareem Hassan cautions people against assuming that self-employment is the easy way out. In fact, the entrepreneurial journey can be one of the toughest roads to travel, but it is also worth every sleepless night. Moreover, working at something you are passionate about gives you a broader view of everything, making it easier to navigate these challenges.

Despite the challenges of entrepreneurship, Kareem Hassan says that being your own boss is so much better than working for someone else. “When done right, self-employment allows you to live your dream life,” he concludes.
