Episode 25 - Oppression is still real in 2019. What is like to run a business while being an immigrant and from a poor third world country

August 16th, 2019

I hate to start drama or pick a fight with someone on social media.

 

Even so, there are some things I need to get off my chest.

 

If this offends you, I’m sorry. But I need to stick up for my people just as you would for your own.

 

Even though my business has accomplished so much, we can still be put in this box where our results are overshadowed because not everyone on my team is fluent in English, American-born, or living in the States.

 

Despite how we prove ourselves, people can still see us as “other” or “less than.”

 

In this episode of Success Tank, I talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of running a business with an international team in a world where oppression is still real.

 

I share my stance as an immigrant myself, roadblocks my team comes up against, and a look behind the curtain into some struggles we encounter.

 

If I’ve made you angry already, this episode probably isn’t for you.
