When reflecting on his early career, a memory that stood out to him was when he received an email during class. Mavlonbek was selling screensavers on Amazon at 18-years old, and within three months, he made his first sale.
“I couldn’t believe that I made a sale – it was mesmerizing! After that initial sale, more and more kept coming. This fun experience motivated me to do more.”
Mavlonbek was inspired to start his business through his interest in writing. As an introvert, he turned to writing as a self expression. Mavlonbek started writing blogs and gained traction over time. Once he realized his potential in writing, the idea of Agavente began. His company offers on-demand copywriting for startups, e-commerce, and retail companies. It is an easier and more efficient way for entrepreneurs to solve their content needs.
Mavlonbek fell in love with e-commerce and selling products all over the country. He went to a conference in New York City for a global synergy forum. He met a lot of famous people there including Richard Branson and Gary Weiner. Mavlonbek also met his friend at the conference who was the co-founder of the company they started together called, Trewio. “We turned it into a film agency so we decided to have like a little boutique and film agency and we did a lot of commercial ads to different companies then I left, he stayed with this and moved on to next projects.”
When asked about a big challenge he has faced, Mavlonbek stated, “It’s always been the mental challenges – you don’t lose a battle unless you reassure yourself. People can give up easily, so for me the mental part has been really hard.” He explained how when you start something, there are a lot of uncertainties and responsibilities. Over time, Mavlonbek learned how to manage his perspective and mindset to overcome challenges that come his way.
“You should always have some positive attitude and believe in yourself and believe that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
He takes to heart a verse that promises “brighter days will come at the end of the dark days.”
