I recently had a chance to chat with the guys from the small business podcast Square Peg Round Hole and share my story of how I moved from Vancouver, B.C. to Singapore and started a business from scratch. I share with them how I created my own opportunities by cold calling organizations offering my services in a country where I knew no one. I also share why it’s important to do work in an area you are passionate about and how I used my passion to grow the number of attendees at my keynotes from a small room of 10 people to arenas filled with thousands of people. I hope my philosophies and approach to business are a valuable lesson for any small business especially, those starting from scratch in new surroundings.
