Terrorist? Thats What This Entrepreneur Grew Up Being Called, That Didn't Stop Him

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Arizonar -- Adel Belgaied, the founder of PIVIT, is an inspiration to anyone looking to break barriers and achieve success. Born in Detroit, Michigan, and raised in Gilbert, Arizona, Adel learned to believe in himself at an early age. He saw his parents, Sylvia Stoyanovich Belgaied and Mohamed Fouad Belgaied, working tirelessly at their family restaurant, Phoenicia Grill, and he witnessed their transformation from having nothing to creating successful businesses.

Adel is part Macedonian, part Tunisian, and wholeheartedly American. As someone with dual citizenship in Tunisia, Adel had the opportunity to see what life is like in third world countries. This experience helped him appreciate everything he has in the States.

Although Adel faced obstacles such as being called a terrorist and being judged for being Muslim after 9/11, he didn't let that stop him. He learned from his family that hard work and determination are key to success.

After receiving offers from some of the most prestigious schools in America, including West Point, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and others, Adel decided to take an academic scholarship at Arizona State University's WP Carey School of Business. It was there that he started his entrepreneurial career, filing multiple patents and building an events/entertainment business.
After college, Adel became a top salesperson out of 200+ and worked hard to fund a text messaging app that ultimately didn't come to fruition. However, he learned from his experience and went on to build multiple successful businesses, changing lives in his journey.

Today, Adel is a consultant for large firms and is building a groundbreaking social platform, PIVIT. His mission is to change the way the world engages, making it more positive, connected, and united. In 2016, he even launched his own fashion line at New York Fashion Week after only designing for the first time eight months prior, proving that anything is possible with hard work and determination.

Adel's message is clear: no obstacle is too big to overcome, and anyone can achieve success if they believe in themselves and work hard.
