Coming from nothing, now a multi-millionaire and the CEO of C Media and various other businesses, Arham Muhammad’s road to success shows that hardship is not a limitation.
Arham Muhammad is the founder and CEO of an international digital marketing dynamo, C Media, and multiple other businesses. Having built them from the ground up to their current 9-figure incomes.
A traumatic childhood – with no money, a broken home, and a curtailed education – never stopped CEO of C Media, Arham Muhammad from reaching for his dreams and becoming a multi-millionaire at the age of 24.
His journey began at the tender age of 7 when he disassembled electronics to satisfy his growing attraction to the inner workings of computers. This only developed further and in his early teens Arham became increasingly interested in cybersecurity, cyber forensics, and reverse engineering which led to him finding weaknesses in the websites of companies such as AOL, EA, ESPN, Microsoft, and Sony. He did this while attending school until he unfortunately had to leave because of financial constraints.
After leaving school, C Media’s founder jumped into a life of 22-hour workdays, yet barely had enough money to pay for food or rent. Life seemed to be going downhill fast, but “destiny had something else in store for me,” Arham noted.
“Failure breeds success, or so they say,” said Arham, and this holds true for him as his first business, Zstash, was based on trial and error. Later, in 2012 at the age of 20, Arham thought of leveraging the reach of celebrities and public figures, helping them increase their presence and started his second company, C Media. “I always laugh when I remember it now, but you know, it shaped me in so many ways,” recalled Arham. The uneducated cold calls taught him that being an expert was not necessary; all you needed was to be willing to put in the necessary effort and get it done. “You need to have real resilience to overcome obstacles, and maybe my tough childhood prepared me for it.” With no experience and no knowledge of how to run a business, he found himself handling A-list celebrities and public figures.
C Media quickly turned into an international digital advertising dynamo, netting $20k to $30k daily. Arham, however, was not content leaving his business there because he saw the potential for more growth and knew that slowing down would cost him everything. “We’d gone from $0 to $20k per day fairly quickly, and I think once you get the momentum, you start believing there’s nothing that’s going to stop you going higher.”
Currently, C Media is venturing into the field of automation and artificial intelligence, which is believed to be ground-breaking technology. The company is focussing on this concept in the hopes that one day it will be a solution to many of the marketing issues currently plaguing the industry. As CEO of C Media, Arham plans to automate direct-response marketing completely so as not to spend so much time on it, giving himself time to focus on other aspects of his future.
One would think that a multi-millionaire’s proudest moment would be their first big sale or the first million in the bank, but not for Arham. “You know what I am most proud of is buying my family a house at a very young age (24) and providing them with the security that I never had. That means a lot more to me than all the other successes I’ve had in my life.”
