As a quiet and studios teen, Asif Ali Gohar had friends, but didn’t have a large following or lead the school. He had a tight knit group of friends who spent time together, studied together, and enjoyed sports and other activities. We checked in to see how his social life has changed and been affected by the fame that has surrounded him since the launch of his vegan rice leather. Today we learn what a social life changed by fame looks like.
For starters, there are many more people clambering for his attention. Between meetings and networking there are more people than ever who want to be within his circle and be able to mention him in conversation with others. These people may be doing so to gain popularity for themselves, or to grow their own business connections, but they are also offering the same in return. This leads to increased invitations to dinners, charity events, sporting events, and networking events of all types. Networking events are a popular way to meet new people and to grow contacts in new areas and new businesses, and they are often enjoyable as well. Attending networking events just to meet new people and firm up connections already made, has become one of the key parts of his new social calendar.
Additionally, charity event have become a regular occurrence as well. Attending these is one way in which the business, and Asif Ali Gohar himself, can give back to the community that has supported his business and welcomed it to the area. While a student who was finishing high school, he could never have imagined that he would spend evenings in ballrooms or trails, offering financial and time commitments to assist in charities around the country. By giving back his company not only helps more people but also boosts their own reputation and attracts more buyers and clients. There is no limit to what people will do for charity, so the events are widely varied and always a new experience.
A social calendar can fill quickly with these types of events, but it is key to leave time for friends and for activities that are enjoyable for no other reason. Lunch with a best friend, a movie with an old co-worker, or a morning catch up with a dear friend, are all ways that he continues to stay in contact with those who mean the most. Each of these occurrences can ease stress, boost confidence, and help to spark creativity. These friendships are ones that will stand the test of time and that know him the best, allowing them to access areas of his life that others cannot. It is necessary to hold on to these relationships, and ensure that no matter how much a social life is changed, that there is still time for the most important things.
