Emir Ashraf

Business Strategist


What do you do?
I’m one of the founders of Fresco Fresheners, also the business strategist for Mula Zine. After 6, I take off the many other hats I wear in between the day.
Why do you do what you do and how do you convince people that you love what you do?
I like solving problems. I think it’s one of my greatest pleasures, which is to solve something. I only learned to love business immediately after 18. Maybe I saw something I liked and wanted to get that immediately. Maybe.
What’s your birth chart and which one do you resonate most with?
Taurus Sun and Rising, Scorpion Moon. Generally more Taurus but when I’m angry, probably a Scorpion. Ha!
What’s your best skill, and one skill that you wish you had?
I think one of the skills I have would be to be able to answer any of your questions. A skill I wish I had is to be able to speak publicly with confidence. Practicing though!
What’s a quintessential signature you that many can be familiar with?
I’m always wearing shorts.
How did you get to where you are now and what were some of the fall backs that you had to go through?
I just keep learning from past mistakes and keep my head up. One of my fallbacks were I had to self-fund everything that I do so it makes everything slower than it is.
What’s your favorite photo in your gallery and why?

Represents who I am before and after. Both with the same person.

What’s your pet peeve?
People that aren’t punctual.
Describe to us what your ideal collaboration and client is. Also, who would you want to work with?
I’d love to work with people that have experience in major marketing companies so that I learn to execute campaigns globally.
How should one approach you to working together?
I’d like to see passion and effort in someone before they approach me with their idea.
