     Hello Everyone. I'm Auran Shereef. Konnex Consulting spawned from my previous company Konnex which I founded in my college dorm room. After graduating from the University of Maryland I worked at a series of Dept of Defense companies. But when I was 24 I picked up a copy of "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. Upon reading the book I discovered "the secret" that lies within...Utilizing the "Law of Attraction" I manifested meeting the legendary Bob Proctor when I was 26.

I attended his program called the Matrix and it changed my life. From that point on I founded a software technology company called "Konnex". After a serious Motorcycle Accident and getting a second chance at Life. I decided to pursue my Dream.

A few days after my 26th Birthday, I was involved in a horrible Motorcycle Accident​

Click to Read my Motorcycle Accident Story

After Spending 3 months in a wheelchair and not being able to walk. I was able to fully recover because of my Amazing Mother.

After this motorcycle accident, In less than a year I built a successful software company, published multiple books and was interviewed on various shows.

      The goal of the company was to connect people together in an unforgettable way thorough our innovative software platform. Konnex would store the date, time, location of interactions amongst individuals.

    After a period of time I put the company aside to find a new direction. As a result I now run a software consulting agency with its primary goal to help business owners and individuals take their companies to the next level.

                               Konnex was relaunched on Jan 1st, 2021
