Recently in my life, the notion of success has come up over and over again. Quite a bit.

That it forces you to become many things; anything but your true self.
There was a moment in history, we as people looked up for the very first time [at the stars] and never would it be the same. We brought our own relevance and capabilities into question with a majesty that, to this day, maintains an unrelenting hold on our lives.

In this conversation, Ramneek and Sarah talk about our perceptions of ourselves, the insecurities we all face (especially as entrepreneurs) and the mindset it takes to succeed in life. Join them in this engaging conversation as they explore Sarah’s work and her story that brought her to this moment.
