Startup Grind Lahore started off with an introduction about his life and how he worked tirelessly to be where he is today, adding the things he learned working in the corporate as well as government sector.
When asked about the diversity he’s exhibited in his career moves, he exclaimed, “If you stay in one position or one company for too long you become too comfortable, I for one, was always someone who liked to be challenged that’s why I continued to move, to learn and to grow in the face of adversity.” He further went on to point out a crucial difference between being an entrepreneur working for a company, he stated, “ I worked 10-12 years had a million rupee package, a good job but I knew that any one day if I’m asked to leave I would have nothing to fall back on. What legacy would I have to leave when I’ve been working for someone else, which is when I decided to find the courage to move forward.”
