Madden, 59, who founded his eponymous label in 1990, says he goes through phases when he thinks there is “nothing” more he can do to improve his label and he should give up his career, but other days he feels “incredible” and “valuable”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Speaking to Marie Claire Online, Madden said, “More now, actually. I suppose there were moments then, but really, now. The pupils are better than the teacher. And as the teacher and the builder, I have to figure out another way that I can add value to my company”.

“So, now, because I’m an entrepreneur, maybe there’s nothing I can do anymore. Maybe I should just quit – I have thought that. But then I have incredible days where I feel valuable,” he added.

When Madden is building his team he looks for passionate colleagues with a hard “work ethic”.

“It’s passion, work ethic, and knowing what’s important – and the work ethic is the third of those three. It used to be first, but I’ve modified that, because I know certain people who work very hard but are dopey, but I give them points for working hard. I admire young people — they get certain things,” he said

“But showing up is the most important thing. It’s a combination of respecting their peers and respecting their elders but not in a false way, like ‘Let me learn from this dude.’ I don’t have anybody left to learn from, because now, I’m the old guy. I used to be the young cat, and I used to learn from everybody. Now I’m the mentor. There’s so much wisdom you get just by being around,” he added.

Kareena Kapoor Khan has described her sister-in-law Soha Ali Khan as a solid woman.

Soha Ali Khan on Tuesday launched her first book The Perils of Being Moderately Famous. In a rare picture perfect moment, the entire family, including Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saba Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan’s husband Kunal Kemmu gathered on the stage.

Kareena Kapoor Khan said of Soha Ali Khan, “I truly believe that she is torchbearer of the family and this book’s title doesn’t do justice to her being famous or not famous because I think she is the grounding on which all of us stand on, and I have truly seen the way she has compassionately and with just a breaking heart, looked after her father (the late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi). I have never ever seen any daughter like that. I am a daughter, but I don’t know if I could have done it the way she looked after him and that. In my eyes, she is a solid woman and I am sure Abba is listening to this.”

Sharing her personal relationship with Soha Ali Khan and revealing some interesting stories about her, Kareena Kapoor Khan said, “I rarely get intimidated by anyone, but if there is one person in the family that I am completely in awe of I think is Soha. When I am at dinner with Saif or Soha, I am like, ‘Oh my God, I am never going to understand their conversation. Soha has always been so polite with me. She always asks me about what’s the gossip or what shopping I did recently, but apart from that, I think we have found our way and if there is anyone in the family that any of us turned to when Amma (Sharmila Tagore) is all worked up and fired up, then there is just one person that can control the situation and that is none other than Soha.”

During the book launch, the family members shared anecdotes about Soha Ali Khan’s life — right from her childhood, her college days, till her motherhood phase.
