Every decision you make in life has some sort of risk attached. The key to being successful in the long run is taking calculated risks that minimize negatives and maximize positives. Have you mastered taking calculated risks, or are you still working on it?
This week’s episode is all about how newcomers, immigrants and international students can take calculated risks. I discussed extensively with Paul Okundaye how he mastered taking calculated risks.
Paul earned his Honours Business Administration degree from the Ivey Business School at Western University. Paul is a management consultant at Bain & Company’s Toronto office.
He immigrated to Canada from Nigeria with his family when he was 13 years old and had stints in investment banking and entrepreneurship prior to working at Bain. In his free time, he loves reading, listening to music, and cheering on the Manchester United Red Devils!
I invited Paul here to discuss practical tips that immigrants, newcomers, and international students can use to taking calculated risks that increase positive outcomes. This is one episode you should not miss and share with everyone you love.
