“I really like to help people. So far, I didn’t know how to decide what to do. First of all, I was a full-time member of the Josh Talks team. Therefore, in my books, it was unethical to withdraw money from anywhere else. I’ve never gotten paid from any of the entrepreneurs or content creators I’ve worked with, but Supriya (co-founder of Josh Talks) one day approached me and said what you’re doing is great, but you should pay a little money for people to appreciate your time.”
Encouraged by the Josh Talks team, Manish is now working commercially with some startups and content creators as a consultant and mentor.

So, my spiritual being in me was saying it came out of you and not yours. So why take money for that? Now I’m engaged in More than talking. I’m involved in their daily tasks and now have business associations with a few startups. But all said and done, there are hundreds of people who have spoken to me and I’m not taking money out of them because some are growing and some are trying to make their mark.”
“I really like to help young people who have the enthusiasm to do beyond what ordinary people do. So, I believe this is my contribution to building a stronger nation.”
