Interview with Fred Khalilian “Khalifa” (@princefred)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My self-determination, hard work and business mind led me to where I am now. I have always worked hard to be a successful person in this world.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
In order to thrive, one must be sure of what he or she wants to do in life. If the career path that you are opting for is of your choice where you can show your skills remarkably then one should definitely go for it. Without self-motivation, a person can go nowhere.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
As I lost my family at a young age, I have learned to live by my own self. So the reason where I am now is due to my own self-motivation and hard work. I have always learned from my mistakes and never repeated them. I am firstly grateful and proud of my own self then I am grateful for all the positive and supportive people around me.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I have always kept a positive attitude towards the people around me and have helped many people whenever I found anybody in need whether it was financial or emotional support. Apart from that, I have always been open to constructive criticism and have motivated others with my success and struggle stories.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Play by the rules, but be ferocious.” – Phil Knight
This is my favorite quote because it is very important to do a job within the rules, regulations, and boundaries but one must be extremely hard working and successful in whatever he or she does. I always play by the rules but never forget to be ferocious. This is the reason why I am successful today.
