Bilal quit school at 16 to build a kickboxing career.
After a shoulder injury, he was forced to stop and find a job.
It was with geninc that he chose to invest himself: less than two years later, he is a franchisee!
What did you do before Geninc?
I left school at 16 to pursue a career in bitboxing which I had to stop because of a shoulder problem. After that, I continued to look for work from the age of 16 until I was 18. I finally gave up my search because I couldn’t find any interesting opportunity. It was during this period that I was contacted by geninc.
I was a bit wary at first but I tried it anyway and here I am today!
How did you start as a BA?
I immediately felt good about being a brand ambassador with geninc.
I felt good vibes as soon as I started and I became attached to the people I met. Everyone is very close-knit and caring, we have a blast on the field! And I especially realized how lucky I was with geninc, everything that is possible in terms of travel and opportunities, I would not have found elsewhere. My coach was a real role model for me because he made me realize my abilities and the opportunities I had. It motivated me to go even further and to surpass myself.
We all have the same chances, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, only your performance.
What attracted you when you started?
Without a doubt, the way you can grow and evolve. We all have the same chances, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, only your performance.
And then the freedom, the independence, the fact that we can set our own goals. The feeling of having everything under my control is comfortable because everyone advances at their own level, there is no “hierarchy”. The coaches are there to help us, to advise us and to put us on the right track and this is a real plus which allows us to develop. We discipline ourselves, we are our own motivation and we are encouraged for that.
When I look back, I realize that I have completely changed.
I can say that I am a different person today, more mature. I trust myself more and people trust me. So it makes me want to continue and improve even more.
What is going to change now that you are a franchisee?
Becoming a franchisee is a good thing, it was obviously on my to-do list. But it’s not over yet, I still have a lot of things to live and do. I’m happy, but for me the most important thing is to keep moving forward, learning, so I can’t wait to take the next steps!
What are your goals now? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I see myself as an investor, I would like to invest more money.
I still see myself being independent and working for myself, because that’s what suits me best and gives me fulfillment on a daily basis. I would like to travel too, all over the world and meet people, to be able to give others the same opportunity that I had.
Being independent, that’s what suits me best and gives me fulfillment on a daily basis.
