(Recorded in “lockdown life” so please excuse background noises and small people!) Highlights: “The sense of belonging is skewed where sometimes you have the people who are purists I guess, I’m not accepted by some of them here because I don’t look like them.” “The comment statement most of them make quite regularly is, how do I do it?” “The common denominator for all of them is me. The common denominator is Majid.” “The question always arises, if you’re starting up for the first time, you want to go into business you have an idea, you want to make money on the side as well. How far do you push all the other things that you do, because you never know – something that you’ve kept in the background might be a better earner.” “One of the positives about what’s gone on is people have gotten to understand there are more options open now” “If you don’t practice what you believe in, then what you believe in is not important.” More from Majid: Find and follow Majid on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MajidWarisOnline Subscribe to Majid’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/MajidWaris Check out Majid’s podcast: https://www.facebook.com/BeardosMedia/
