Our discussion will address familiar themes explored with other leaders representing a variety of sectors, fields, and professional paths: How to craft and sell your story Mental barriers that hold back immigrant entrepreneurs When to play to societys expectation and when to choose to break free of those restraints Why reframing is one of the most important skills for an entrepreneur How to get scale right out of the gate Cultivating the right relationships
