In just three years, Shama Hyder’s digital marketing firm reached the $1 million mark. Here’s how she made it happen with hard work–and a whole lot of hustling.
Ask Shama Hyder what she’s like as a person and she’ll tell you, “I’m an academic at heart.” But keep talking to this bubbly, 27-year-old social media whiz, and you’ll quickly learn she’s something else at heart: a hustler, in the best sense of the word.
Hyder runs the Marketing Zen Group, a Dallas, Texas-based digital marketing and public relations firm she founded in 2009. This year Marketing Zen is on track for $2 million in revenue, she says.
