#54 To Live and Learn | Failure as an Engine on the Road to Success: Omar Zenhom - $100MBA & Webinar Ninja
What failures have shaped you into the person you are now? It’s an easy question to ask, but a hard one to answer. Yet for Omar Zenhom, it’s the question behind all of his successes today. In this episode, we sit down with Omar Zenhom, founder of Webinar Ninja, an online platform that expedites the configuration of large-scale webinars, and host of the award-winning $100 MBA Podcast, which provides aspiring entrepreneurs with free, daily doses of real-world business advice. While Omar may seem like he’s already learned all he needed to succeed, there was a time when he too had a lot to learn about entrepreneurship. And his best teacher at the time? Failure. Join us as we explore Omar’s entrepreneurial journey, starting from his Long Island roots growing up in an Egyptian-American immigrant family, to his earlier career experiences in Egypt and Dubai, and finally to the momentary reset behind his return to the Big Apple, where his long-lasting passion for teaching fostered his success with Webinar Ninja and The $100 MBA Podcast.

Episode 363: Omar Zenhom of $100MBA and Webinar Ninja (FS363)
The Fizzle Show
https://fizzleshow.co – Our guest today is Omar Zenhom. Omar is the co-founder and CEO of WebinarNinja. Founded in 2014, over a million people have attended a webinar on WebinarNinja and it was named as one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in 2018. Omar is also is the host of the $100 MBA Show podcast. With over 90 million downloads and over 1,300 episodes, The $100 MBA Show is ranked as a top business podcast in over 30 countries. In today's episode, we cover how Omar grew the $100MBA podcast to 90 million downloads and how he built Webinar Ninja. We also talk about how HARD business can be as you grow. Omar believes it gets harder not easier as you progress in business. It's the easiest it will ever be when you get started (comforting and not comforting at the same time) And because it gets harder, at some point it forces you to change who you are....or you're simply not going to make it. This is actually a good thing but it doesn't feel that way at first.

16: Omar Zenhom & Nicole Baldinu of $100 MBA and Webinar Ninja
Together 24/7 with Barry & Catherine Cohen
A little about our guests. Omar and Nicole are currently engaged with a wedding planned in January, 2016. Omar started out at the Wharton Business School but soon became frustrated with it and left. He is an educator who has spent in 11 years of education as a teacher, teacher-trainer, and manager. Nicole hails from Australia and, as Omar says, has a great Aussie accent. She studied at New York Film Academy and started videography after her teaching stint in Dubai. She is the sensible one of the two (according to Omar). They met as university educators and went on to create $100 MBA. A little about their business. There were 5 or 6 businesses before the creation of The $100 MBA. Omar is the face and voice of The $100 MBA. Nicole is the video part of the operation. She is the one with all the good taste (according to Omar) and makes sure everything they put out looks and sounds great. You can listen to their short and powerful podcast, The $100 MBA. They are also the creators of Webinar Ninja, another learning tool to help you expand your business. One piece of advice (the nutshell version) Focus on and improve your communication skills. A great way to do this is by writing a blog. Blogging allows you to refine your communication skills. Always keep growing. Look for progress in everything you do. Be aware of how you develop and how you are growing. Reading Material Remote: Office Not Required by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson The Ultimate Sales Machine by Chet Holmes Omar and Nicole suggest reading 30 minutes each day.
