Heather and Parsa were both in Egypt during the revolution in 2011. They share their experiences in living there during that tumultuous time. We then jump into a discussion of capitalism from two unique viewpoints and then shift into communicating and connecting with others.
During this conversation, you will learn about:
- their experience of living in Egypt during the 2011 revolution and how it differed from what we saw on the media
- the normality of life, despite the ongoing gatherings and riots
- the economic divides in Egypt vs the general population happiness
- some of their crazy stories while living in that region
- our discussion of the pros and cons of the different flavors of capitalism in San Francisco vs developing countries
- our thoughts on where technology is leading the world
- the importance of developing genuine relationships
- how to better connect with authors and influencers via email

These podcasts are only the beginning, hopefully leading to deeper conversations. In that vein, I’m going to try something new. I’m creating a group where I can post unreleased resources, share unique opportunities and interact with you on a more personal level. The key to me is interaction. To give us a way to learn from each other.
So – if this sounds fun to you, join our growing community.
Oh – and before this starts to sound like some slick sales shit – this is all free. All you need to bring is your time and attention.
