My Story

Zarir Merwanji is a serial entrepreneur, a sales and leadership keynote speaker and serves as a Leadership Training Manager at the corporate headquarters in Atlanta for the worlds largest home improvement retailer, The Home Depot.

Zarir is considered one of the leading global minds on what’s next in culture, relevance and the internet. Known as “Mister Zee” he is described as unique, one of the most forward thinkers in business – he acutely recognizes trends and patterns early to help others understand how these shifts impact markets and consumer behavior. Whether its emerging sales consultants, newly appointed managers or virtual training and new technology, Zarir understands how to bring brand relevance to the forefront.

Zarir is an entrepreneur at heart — he helps build businesses. Today, he helps small business brands leverage consumer attention through his content on LinkedIn, Podcast, YouTube and This website. Zarir is natural born storyteller and speaker and is sought after for many public speaking events on stage and virtually.

Zarir and his family immigrated to the US from Kenya in 1991. He lived with 4 family members in a studio apartment in London, England, he calls this phase “eating tuna in the dark” and then relocated to San Francisco, California and then again to Buffalo New York where he met the love of his life right before graduating high school.

Zarir often calls himself a “purebred entrepreneur” having successfully started a fire and security business at 20, and eventually selling tens of thousands of dollars worth of business by knocking on doors for a living throughout his sales career.

Today he’s a successful Master Trainer and sought after keynote speaker with a great LinkedIn presence, a podcast and a YouTube channel where he delivers weekly trainings for free for his community on topics of business, leadership and all good things in life.

Zarir is a family first husband, dad and just a dude that loves to work his face off and enjoys flipping garage sale items on ebay and is learning how to scale his side hustle #MugLife coffee mugs, T-shirts, hats and other coffee swag on Amazon. His goal is to donate and help charities like back pack buddies in the city of Cartersville school systems to help kids in the local American communities to have access to food and technology in their homes, because giving coffee to kids would be considered, well, I’d get my parenting license taken away lol.
