Business Coach and Author, Ahmed Abdulbaqi, Writes About How Trading Is Different Than Building A Business

August 16, 2018

Best-selling Author and Business Coach, Ahmed Abdulbaqi, reveals how many people think they are business owners while they are merely traders while true business owners build lasting value and serve their communities.

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia – August 16, 2018 – Ahmed Abdulbaqi, The Growth Coach franchise owner, and co-author of The Art Of Success with Jack Canfield posted a new blog on his company website entitled “Trading vs. Building a Business.” Mr. Abdulbaqi emphasizes there’s nothing wrong with trading, but that it is different than building a business.

Abdulbaqi begins by pointing out that, “Currency comes in various forms.” He elaborates, “Cash is the most familiar form of currency for most people. But the truth is that currency comes in many forms. Some forms include but are not limited to real estate, stocks, bonds, knowledge, products, services, commodities and most importantly TIME.” He continues, “Therefore, in order to receive what we desire, we need to give something in exchange. From that basic understanding the idea of trading came into our minds.”

“For most business owners having a business is about trading products and services for cash,” Abdulbaqi states. He continues adding, “They are then of the belief that the more cash they receive the better position they are in.” He states, “However, in my opinion, nothing could be further from the truth. “

According to Abdulbaqi, “A true business owner is someone who is solving a problem in their own communities. A business owner has cash but also, more importantly, they have an asset that is built on universally aligned foundations. This asset very often will have the capacity to live for decades, and in some cases hundreds of years beyond the business owner who started it, to continually add value to the world.”
