I had the opportunity to talk to Amira Irfan about her journey in blogging and self improvement.
Today, Amira writes on her blog www.aselfguru.com. She writes useful content regarding the legal aspects of blogging and other entrepreneurial ventures. Her blog helps new bloggers begin their blogging journey as well.
Amira has quite a fascinating story where she started as a model, pursued a career as a teacher, worked as a lawyer before taking up her entrepreneurial journey.
Maxim: Tell us about your blog. What made you start writing about Self Improvement?
I am a business lawyer, six-figure blogger, and coach who teaches you how to protect your online business legally. In the last 9 years, I’ve helped over 10,000 entrepreneurs with my affordable legal templates and services.
I started writing some articles about self-improvement to help entrepreneurs manage the day to day stress of running and building their dream businesses. Starting a business from scratch requires a lot of self-discipline and dedication and I believe we all can benefit from some improvement tips to boost our productivity and increase our growth!
Maxim: Tell us about your personal journey in self improvement. Give us some examples of how you improve yourself regularly.
I’m constantly evolving! (I think we all are to some extent) but I always look for ways to improve myself. For example, I used to have trouble taking action because I would “think” more than “execute” but ever since I read Tony Robbins book, “Awaken the Giant Within,” I learned the power of taking massive action!
Same way, I have invested in tons of self-improvement books and tools to enhance my personal and professional life such as managing my time wisely and replacing my “bad habits” with “good habits.” In fact, I wrote a post on this topic which you can read here
Maxim: Among all the articles you have written, which one is your favorite? Why?
Two articles are my favorite and one of them I already shared above –
1. 7 Most Powerful Habits of Self-Made Millionaires – I love this post because it digs deeper into what makes you a self-made millionaire? Pay attention to your habits! This is what distinguishes an ordinary person from an extraordinary one.
Habits are the building blocks of your success. They define you as a person and before you can take any action steps towards achieving your hopes and dreams, make sure to adopt good habits of self made millionaires.
In this post, I go over 7 most powerful habits of self made millionaires including self-improvement books that truly changed my life and made me a 6-figure online entrepreneur.
The second article I recommend is –
2) How to Slay Your Goals in Life & Business
This post gives you all the tools and actionable tips you need to achieve your goals faster. Goal setting may be easy but how to achieve your goals as busy bloggers and entrepreneurs is not that easy!
This blog post provides you the exact tools and strategies you need to become a goal slayer in no time with the best selling Slay Your Goals Planner and Goal Setting 101 course you need to stay focused on your goals at all times!
Maxim: Self improvement has various aspects. However, if you had to give only one single piece of advice to your readers, what would it be?
Learn to maximize your time wisely to be super productive because time is money. Time lost = money lost in business! Done is always better than perfect.
Maxim: What advice would you give to a young person just starting his/her journey of self improvement?
Invest in the right tools and resources to learn from the best instead of wasting time or getting frustrated trying to figure out everything on your own. If self-improvement is what you seek then invest in the right books and courses you need to enhance yourself.
Maxim: If you had a time machine that sent you 10 years back in time, what self improvement advice would you give yourself?
I would have spent less time “thinking” and more time “doing”! I wish I had started my online business 10 years ago instead of wasting time pondering on the idea alone.
Maxim: How has your blogging and writing influenced and transformed you? Do you think you have changed as a person since you started blogging?
Blogging is my side hustle while I work full-time as a lawyer during the day. I have been blogging for 1.5 years now and blogging has provided a life purpose to me. It has completely changed my life. Making $35,000 a month blogging is simply a dream come true.
It has allowed me to pay off huge debts such as my $150,000 law school student loans while also helping THOUSANDS of bloggers and entrepreneurs sleep peacefully at night knowing their online business is legally protected with my affordable legal templates and services!
Maxim: What makes you happiest as a blogger?
Receiving love notes from my customers and readers 🙂 When someone tells me, “I’m a lifesaver” or how my legal templates were the “best investment” for their blogs, this kind of positive feedback on my legal templates truly fulfills me and warms my heart every single time! Take a look at hundreds of love notes here to see what I mean
Maxim: Who are the other self improvement bloggers that you’re a fan of?
I’m not following any particular blogger in this niche right now but I do love some books that I can recommend such as Million Dollar Habits by Brian Tracy or Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins.
Maxim: Where can the readers contact you?
Amira: People can easily reach me on my Facebook group here.
Maxim: Thanks a lot Amira. It was wonderful knowing your thoughts. Continue blogging and influencing people. All the best for your career as a lawyer and a blogger.
