At the age of 30 and after two years learning and developing his skills, Majid opened his first franchise in Toulouse!
What did you do before becoming a Brand Ambassador?
I did a lot of things! First, I had two Baccalaureates, one in Accounting and another in Civil Engineering. Then I did a BTS in construction. I’ve also had very varied jobs, I’m very curious. I’ve worked in architecture, robotics, photovoltaics, real estate and the automotive industry. I also created two associations around gaming and video games, a real passion for me.

Your experience as a Brand Ambassador?
I got a call from Geninc during an interview for a real estate job. I was in the middle of looking for an opportunity so it was the right time, I didn’t ask myself any questions, I just went for it.
The first few weeks were quite a discovery: the atmosphere, the way things worked… everything was different. I had a hard time reaching my goals at first, but I was determined to stay because ever since I was a little kid, I told myself that when I found the THING, I would give it my all, and at Geninc, for the first time I found that thing, the thing that motivates me and helps me to surpass myself, which is working for myself.
And then I loved the people I was with so much. That’s what made me want to do even more and allow my teams to grow. I was really given the chance to express myself, I understood that I had something to do here. Geninc meets all my needs: money, flexibility, relationships, support, coworking…
You are more motivated and you evolve much faster when you are well supported than when you are alone.
Alone, you don’t always realize your own mistakes, whereas with Geninc, you can constantly learn from others, and with others, to grow.

What will change now that you are a Franchisee?
Not much, I’m going to continue on my way. For me, being a Franchisee is a step, a logical continuation, but not an end in itself. I’ve been able to develop bigger life goals and I feel lucky to have gotten to this point. But there is still a lot of work to do to reach my personal goals. It’s like a video game: I’ve completed a milestone, finished one part of the game. Now I have other worlds to explore, other adventures to try. It’s never over, there’s always something to rebuild and I can’t wait to get started, to move forward and even to fail! Failure is part of the game, failures serve to put us back on the right path. I am the same but I am happy because I see myself evolving and I see myself being taken more seriously too. The most important thing is to learn and be a better version of yourself.

Your goal? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In five years I’d like to open new offices in a tower in Toulouse which I really want to do! And as I’m a real e-sport fan, I would also like to develop my own brand in this field. But I still have a lot of projects in mind: I would like to travel around the world, I want to visit Asia since I was a kid, this would be the opportunity! I would also like to open Geninc offices in other countries. I’m tempted by Morocco because of its video game structure, it would allow me to combine everything I love in one place. But I’m also more and more tempted by Germany!
What is sure is that I will still be on the field because I like it and I like what it offers: the sharing, the fact of seeing and being able to help others evolve.I grow by seeing others grow. I am particularly attached to the philosophical concept of Ubuntu, an African concept that describes an ubuntu person as open and available to others: the more you give, the more you receive and the more you help others grow, the more you grow.

3 pieces of advice to a future franchisee?
- Focus on the field, go beyond the door-to-door concept and get to know people, create a bond.
- Don’t recruit for yourself, but to give someone the opportunity to grow, to see others grow.
- Appreciate the little things, realise how lucky you are. What makes you happy does not have to be expensive.
