I share my entrepreneurial journey and lessons.
I’m Zeeshan Ali, founder, and owner of Z-Swag and Wealth Armor. My parents immigrated from Pakistan in 1978, and I’m a first-generation American. I started doing business at age 14 wearing XXL white tees (when I should’ve been wearing a small), selling loosies for 50 cents a pop in the west side of Chicago. While attending Triton College, I began my side-hustle of sourcing chef coats from a flea market and sold them to classmates. Since then, my chef uniform and equipment company has morphed into what it is today.

A few brands that have hired me include Facebook, Cricket Wireless, General Mills, LinkedIn and Sony. If that list doesn’t convince you, I’ve been featured by Inc., HuffPost, AllBusiness, and American Express.
I’m passionate about helping others find success and reach their potential. I’m constantly challenging myself and putting myself in uncomfortable situations to grow and get better everyday. That’s why I place an emphasis on versatility, which compliments my knowledge in business.
