Khalid was self-employed and ran small businesses for 15 years, starting as a teenager. As his family grows, however, Khalid wants more time at home. He sells one of his businesses, a profitable catering company, and mentors a talented employee in his social media company to take on a more active leadership role. Khalid is offered an enticing position in a start-up company, where his entrepreneurial mindset and expertise will be highly valued. Although he enjoyed juggling multiple gigs over the years, he’s keen to focus on this one position at this stage of his career.
