Adopted at 3 years old by his uncle who was in the trucking business Umair (Sam) Chaudry @uc78612 faced many challenges early and throughout his life in his 28 years.
As troubled youth, by the age of 15 he went to prison and did a 5 year sentence.
After returning home, he entered the workforce working low income jobs due to lack of opportunities for someone with his past.
Sam then reconnected with the Trucking Business and worked his way up as a dispatcher managing a mid size fleet of 14 trucks single handed.
His skill would be recognized and he was offered an opportunity to work with the owner of company on a new endeavor.
Shark Logistics was born. Due to a lack of knowledge, Sam’s company did not do well the first year and was not profitable. They would later get things on track and recoup some of their losses.
As The future began to look bright, growing the company to 6 Trucks, things were derailed by an accident that involved a fatality and Sam’s company driver.
This would change Sam’s outlook on life and business. He than shifted his focus to helping others as his company was caught up in legalities.
With @_uconsulting Sam wanted to help companies (30 + ) not make the mistakes he did along with helping them make more money and connecting them with the right people along the way.
On Episode 73 The self proclaimed “Shark” tells the #hustlefam all about his challenging journey and gives some great insights as to how he gets it done.
