Entrepreneurial empowerment is the force that led Erfan Hettini to turn an unfortunate layoff into a final launch toward entrepreneurship. He is no stranger to starting up a business since he founded one when he was only nineteen and still in college. It was the first of many to come, not to mention countless battles with indecision between the entrepreneurial lifestyle and working in a corporate job for someone else.
He recalls the one moment that changed it all. 'A little over ten years ago, I was agonizing after losing my last corporate job as a district manager and I wrote down 101 reasons why I should never work for someone else ever again and that I should start my own business one more time.' This experience led him to create the Fire Your Employer book series. And ultimately inspired the creation of Enlightened Life Productions. A service that offers coaching and mentoring for entrepreneurs that need support and a guide to launch their business.
What happened after Erfan decided to launch his business? He experienced what he would consider his biggest success or success streak. In just under two years he went from being jobless to taking up several business endeavors.
He became a business consultant, a real estate investor, an award winning published poet in the US and in Europe and a published author with endorsements from NY Times bestselling authors.
Besides that he also helped produce the documentary Awaken Your Riches. And he has been referred to as an ambassador of entrepreneurship.
Coaching and mentoring entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams is what Erfan is most passionate about. But he would also consider himself somewhat of a philanthropist. In 2007 he helped feed 1.3 million children in America with Feed 333 and the World Trust Organization.
