The Story of a Dreamer Committed to Bettering the World

Published

on

Fahed Al Essa is a dreamer, innovator, and achiever.  Born and raised in Kuwait, his first exposure to America was under difficult circumstances. During the Gulf War, his family was displaced and sought refuge in California. Many years later he would return to that state under vastly different circumstances in pursuit of an entrepreneurial dream. 

Essa has always enjoyed and prioritized learning, particularly in areas where science can improve people’s lives. After getting his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania in molecular biology, he obtained a master’s degree in biotechnology with the ambitious aim of curing cancer.  It was during this time, he began conducting cancer research as an intern at the Wistar Institute. Essa, now later reflects on this experience noting “I was naïve, it wasn’t that easy [to cure cancer], but the research I was doing was part of a lab that contributed to the development of the T-cell therapy, which is the most novel way of treating cancer today”. After spending time in the life sciences branch of healthcare, Essa began to note the opportunities in the provider realm. 

He created a technology company back in Kuwait that would shift Kuwait’s healthcare facilities from paper to electronic means, a move that the healthcare world has since whole-heartedly embraced and now the largest public hospital in Kuwait boasts of its fully electronic operation. However, Essa was slightly ahead of this movement and was unable to gain traction. Many entrepreneurs cite that failing was their best learning experience, and Essa is no different, seeing the lessons and opportunities that stemmed from the experience. A private hospital, Taiba, was excited about his ideas and Essa was hired to the Director of Strategy. During his tenure at Taiba, he designed and implemented the first hybrid operating room in Kuwait, a form that many hospitals have since adopted. 

One of the aspects that strike people the most about Essa is his ardent belief that healthcare should be patient-centric and anyone working in the industry needs to remember that they are treating human beings.  By understanding and empathizing with patients, the business can build the right solutions and profits will follow. 

Essa’s latest venture after completing his MBA and MPH at UC Berkeley is Dala Wellness, a personalized wellness program with a multivitamin subscription focused on patients with chronic pain. The program is based on clinical evidence and engages chronic pain specialists, physical therapists, mindfulness experts, and nutritionists to complement traditional medicine and help patients take back control of their lives. For Dala, healing comes by bridging the mind, body, and soul. It is initially targeting patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, crest, and ankylosing spondylosis. His app stands in contrast to traditional healthcare models, treating patients like a partner and valuing their voice. As Essa states “we are also putting the patient in the center and building around them. As such everything we provide them is patient ideated, patient-driven, patient-centered and makes the patient’s life easier”.  He has backed this claim up with extensive market research, interviewing over 50 patients as the app continues in development. 

The mindset of valuing dialogues and incorporating the views of others comes naturally to Essa. He believes that many of the failures of healthcare stem from our own opinions and biases: we only see the world from our point of view. As a result, in Dala he is looking to address patient issues from many different angles, which leads to creative, pragmatic solutions. 

Many of us could learn from Essa’s student attitude and commitment to bettering humanity. For others looking to follow in his footsteps he counsels us to invest in providing the best customer experience and learning from the negative experiences. When it comes to facing adversity, he notes, “We must learn from it, move on and know there are better times around the corner. Be optimistic and trust people until they prove you wrong. Be confident about your future and in everyone else’s”.  Brave comments from a brave man.

Building a Reputation from Scratch: Kishmel Eagar’s Story

Published

on

If you’ve ever tried to build an online business, you’ve run into the same obstacle as everyone who succeeded; it’s not easy. To completely start an agency and in under 8 months drive that agency to pump out over 5 figures in revenue is a feat worth admiring. This article is how Kishmel Eagar did just that with ‘Entry Points Media’ and entirely manufactured a credible business reputation from scratch. 

His Story 

Kishmel has spent the past year building his agency from nothing; he’s spent countless hours going through trial and error. A majority of the obstacles Kishmel happened to face were actually self-inflicted such lack of certainty in the longevity of an online business such as his. With thoughts like these looming in kishmels mind in her first few months as an entrepreneur, its no wonder most people give up. What Kishmel quickly learned was that it was going to take much more than focus, discipline, and commitment, you’re going to have to get creative and be ready to invest the time, money and energy that a business takes to build.

The young and tech-savvy entrepreneur was able to grow his name in his industry rather fast due to his niche being very specific. How Kishmel retained his clientele base, and all his future growth was mostly due to the extraordinary customer care he showed. Clients of his have raved about the customer experience, honesty, and integrity of his business and even the strategies he’s put in place to help his clients business grow.

If you’ve ever found yourself working with an individual online that has never lived up to what he promised you to know the headache most consumers go through, a big priority of “Entry Points Media” is to end that hassle of B2B buying experiences. 

Key Takeaways 

A few key points I would like to further touch on when talking about ‘Entry Points Media’ is their promise to consistently offer value to their clients and all prospects as well. Kishmel Eagar, all in all, is a brilliant and dynamic entrepreneur who is capable of delivering services to change the way you do business and put you on the road to success.

Bryan Quaranto, CEO of ProprioX is taking over the world at only 23 years old

Published

on

ProprioX is the newest global corporation to look out for. I had the opportunity to interview CEO, Bryan Quaranto to discuss how he launched his first global corporation at only 23 years old. Bryan not only donated to the Disrupt Foundation, sponsored the upcoming TEDx Condado but he also came with us in person to help donate laptops to college students in Puerto Rico. Bryan is creating a Good Future by recognizing it in the world.

Bryan Quaranto is a well known entrepreneur who has created multiple brands across the United States and Puerto Rico. Now he is taking on the rest of the world as he launches his first global corporation, ProprioX. Helping others along the way, Bryan is focused on developing a real culture in his company called the Honey Empire, a popular term coined by serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk, for extra sweet results. In his new company, Bryan Quaranto will be working on with small business and large corporations looking to develop their brands for the future.

Tell us your story. How did this all get started?

I’ve been building websites since I was 10 years old. I grew up in a small apartment with my mom and brother after my father died when I was 13. School wasn’t for me, I was not a good student. I knew I was going to be successful, but college was not the answer and neither was selling drugs, I thought that there had to be a different route, and I said to myself why am I going to work under someone else my entire life when I can be my own boss? So to create a better future, I launched my first company, Dreamwood Media at 19 years old. After about 3 years of developing and working on Dreamwood Media, I decided to level up, globally, so at 22 years old, I launched my first global brand and soon to be corporation ProprioX.

When I realized I was bridging the gap between problems and solutions. People and companies have problems, I am here to solve them.

I have built multiple successful brands for all different types of audiences and I am continuing to progress in my line of work.

We are focused on brand engineering. We offer consulting and marketing services. ProprioX is a new corporation designed and built as a parent company to serve all the brands we own or operate. Dreamwood Media is a media company owned by us that serves ProprioX. ProprioX is a financial arbitrage machine. ProprioX: Creating a better future by recognizing it. We offer 4 services: Brand Engineering, Social Communications, Community Organization, and Corporate Supervision. Each service is designed to help different audiences.

Bryan thank you again for coming on Disrupt Magazine and for what you have been doing in the community here in Puerto Rico.
