I recently had the distinct pleasure of being a guest on Medi1 Radio’s renowned podcast, “Job Story” a platform that delves into the professional and personal stories of entrepreneurs and change-makers. As the founder of Meqnes, sharing my journey in such a respected space was not only an honor but also a reflective experience.
The Architectural Dreams of My Youth
As a young boy, my eyes were set on the world of architecture. The blend of creativity and precision in designing structures always fascinated me. This dream was more than just a career choice; it was a window into my future affinity for design, detail, and creation.
Entrepreneurship at Seven
Yes, you heard it right. My first venture into the business world began at the tender age of seven. This early experience was a playground for what would later become a deep-seated passion for entrepreneurship. It taught me the basics of business, the importance of customer satisfaction, and the joy of creating something valuable.
A Polish Turning Point
Moving to Poland was a decision fueled by the desire for new experiences and learning. Poland offered not just a change in scenery but a new cultural palette from which to draw inspiration. It was here that the seeds for Meqnes were sown. Poland became more than a home; it became a crucible for my aspirations.
Launching Meqnes: A Mission-Driven Venture
Meqnes was not just a business idea; it was a mission. A mission to bring Moroccan craftsmanship to the global stage, to tell the story of our rich heritage through each product. At Meqnes, we believe in preserving traditional craftsmanship while infusing it with modern design. It’s about creating a product that carries a piece of Moroccan culture.
The Unconventional Business Advice: Naps!
During the podcast, I jokingly shared what might be the most unconventional business advice: the importance of taking naps! While it garnered laughs, it’s rooted in my belief that rest and reflection are crucial for creativity and productivity. Sometimes, the best ideas emerge after stepping back and giving your mind the rest it deserves.
This interview on “Job Story” was more than sharing my story; it was about connecting with others who might be on their entrepreneurial journey. If you’re curious to hear more about the ups and downs, the insights, and the little moments of humor along the way, I invite you to listen to the episode.
Thank you for your continuous support and for being a part of this incredible journey. Let’s keep creating, dreaming, and, yes, even napping our way to success!
Until next time,
