Abdurahman Afia - He became a Muslim, found himself homeless & his life changed forever

Joining us today is Abdurahman Afia the co-founder and managing partner of i2iCorporate.

He's man whose religious decision left him homeless at 18. His story of perseverance took him from the UK to Saudi Arabia which was filled with risk and the sheer desire to succeed. Abdurahman's story is an inspiration to all of us who have had to make life-changing decisions in our lives.

This is one of my favorite episodes yet.

An MBA holder with extensive experience managing cross-cultural and multi-generational teams, he is also the founder of Insights with Afia, a management consulting firm leveraging his considerable regional experience to provide leadership development coaching that yields a 10x ROI for medium-sized companies and large corporations.

About the Podcast

5 Questions with Frank Mengert
5 Questions with Frank Mengert is a podcast for those who want to do more in their life and career. Interviews with entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, intrapreneurs, business leaders and others who share their origin stories and lessons that shaped them.
5 Questions with Frank Mengert was born out of my quest to change the perception of what we see on social media and what real life is all about. Life is not all about models, bottles, boats, jets, fashion, and people showing off stacks of cash.

As someone who is working on his 4th company, I've ridden the rollercoaster of being an entrepreneur while also having the experience of having been an intrapreneur working for corporate.

This podcast will show you a look into the lives of people just like you. People who you can relate to who have been where you have been and who are now where you might aspire to be someday.

If someone else had done it before you, there is a way for you to achieve those goals. If you are feeling stuck or have hit that wall. Tune in to hear about how others have been successful overcoming challenges to conquer their desires.
