Syed Balkhi is one of the hardest working, smartest, and most successful entrepreneurs I have had the pleasure of speaking to.
He was born in Pakistan and immigrated to the United States at the age of 12. Without a social life due to his lack of English skills, he turned to the Internet and entrepreneurship.
Today, at 25 years old, Syed Balkhi is an award-winning entrepreneur and has been recognized as one of the top 100 entrepreneurs under the age of 30.
He is the owner of several 7-figure online businesses, and over 400 million people visit his websites annually.
Syed Balkhi is the founder of WPBeginner, the world’s largest free WordPress resource site, and the co-founder of List25, OptinMonster, SoliloquyWP, ThemeLab, Envira Gallery, and WPForms.
