Before we begin, our readers are interested to know about how you got started in the first place. Did you always want to be where you are today or was it something you were led to? Share with us your journey.
Nima Yamini: There has been an unprecedented appetite to understand investing and how to succeed as a day trader. Through sharing our knowledge of this industry on TikTok, Pablo and I quickly realized the potential to create our own learning community to help beginners understand this exciting new technology and the complexity of financial markets. Members who join our platform can partake in conversations around generational wealth, NFTs, cryptocurrencies, stocks, real estate, and much more.
Tell us a bit about your current focus. What is the most important thing that you’re working on and how do you plan on doing it?
Nima Yamini: I started an online education platform with my partner/cofounder Pablo Heman, which is our tech startup called ‘P.N. & Friends’. The platform now has about 40,000 members who are focused on crypto, NFT, and day training in the equities market.
My current focus is to help others learn about all of the exciting opportunities that they could discover in the 2020s if they had a better, greater, and deeper understanding of the marketplace.
Some argue that punctuality is a strength. Others say punctuality is a weakness. How do you feel about it, please explain.
Nima Yamini: It pays to make punctuality your strength. Being punctual not only makes you dependable but also helps you to build your confidence.when people depend on you and give you more tasks, you know that they have placed trust in you. This will build your self-confidence and you get an assurance that you can handle larger tasks.
How important is having good timing in your line of work and in the industry that your organization operates in?
Nima Yamini: Most of our workforce which is entirely remote is overseas despite our business being based in Miami Beach, Florida. I welcome remote work but having opportunities to do in-person meetings is priceless too.
Punctuality and good time management are skills demanded by employers across all industries. That’s because being late has the ability to negatively affect whole teams, disrupting meetings and giving yourself and others a reputation for being unprofessional.
Branson also states “If you’re starting to feel like you’re just going through the motions and losing sight of why you started, it might be time to take a break”. But how do you decide when to take a break?
Nima Yamini: As the workforce has become more intense over the years with people constantly overworking themselves and employers not realizing the mental and physical toll this takes on an employee, one piece of advice we have is to always try and take time for yourself. Especially for the up-and-coming generations who believe this lifestyle is the norm.
Whether it’s traveling to a new destination, taking a drive, or just turning off your phone for an evening, it’s imperative to take breaks and unplug from the professional world. At the end of the day, your life will always be worth more than your career.
“Timing can be everything when starting up. It can be the difference between building a thriving business and not” How has good timing helped you achieve success in your career or business? Are there any particular examples from your career that you would like to share?
Nima Yamini: Yes, I agree that timing is everything in life. If not for the pandemic, I would not have started my company, P.N. & Friends. I noticed during that time the demand for knowledge and expertise for financial education was pivotal. Even now, it continues to grow; my partner and I have also launched a Discord channel that has reached nearly 35,000 users in a matter of five weeks.
Business is all about overcoming obstacles and creating opportunities for growth. What do you see as the real challenge right now?
Nima Yamini: There was a moment where we had slower growth, and I refused some people’s business; I began questioning my actions, and maybe I was wrong, but I continued down that path.
Later, when our growth accelerated again, I was thinking about how relieved I was that I did what I wanted to do despite a temporary slowdown in growth because I believe my self-respect isn’t for sale, nor is my team.
For example, I want everyone in our community to feel safe from bullying online, including the shy member who also has questions. Instead of some members, I would not take their money because I don’t want that bad stuff around us.
Before we finish things off, we would love to know, when you have some time away from business, what is one hobby that you wish you could spend more time on?
Nima Yamini: I live between Germany and the United States, when I am not working or traveling I enjoy hiking, martial arts, and literature.
