My name is Owais Shah. A family man through and through, I am the proud parent of one child. Spending time with my child is one of my absolute favorite pastimes. It is relaxing to me, and I like to plan for the future and think about all the bright days ahead of me.

I am Passionate about Craiglist, I believe wholeheartedly in the potential of the platform to connect people for mutual benefit. It is fun to me to test out new ideas, see what works, and try to stay ahead of the game. When I was just 14 years old, I was hired part-time by a local plumber in New York to post ads for him on Craigslist.

I served that client for three years, coming up with ad content, creating images, posting ads, and renewing ads regularly. In that time, I became a master of Craigslist, picking up some additional clients along the way.

I soon had a team of people working for me, a great leap forward at such a young age.

Now, I want to create a whole community of people around Craigslist lead generation for local business. I wrote a detailed guide on Craigslist flagging and ghosting to help you out get the most out of craigslist. You can benefit from the breadth of my 14-year Craigslist career here at this blog.
