This episode is recorded shortly after the murder of George Floyd, by Derek Chauvin, a white police officer. I felt deeply troubled to my core and had to ask myself how I wanted to show up. I realize that while I do not have all the answers, I can still use my voice to speak up.
“Empathy is not enough”
In this episode, I also wanted to discuss with you the inevitable question: where is the fine line between business and politics?
But, this has nothing to do with politics. This is about human lives that are at stake.
As a business owner, you are an important part of the society and you make the society what it is.
So instead, I just decided to show up and simply share how I feel, even if I do not have all the answers yet.
