As a first generation American, I’m a sucker for a good, inspiring “immigrant edge” story.
Dr. Allen Gotora moved to the United States from Zimbabwe when he was 19 years old. When he arrived, he had a couple hundred dollars and a dream of becoming a dentist. In 2008, he graduated with his DDS from Howard University. Since then, he’s build two successful debt free dental offices.
During our chat, we discuss:
How Allen was able to start and build two scratch practices with no credit and no working capital
The power of hustle and the immigrant edge
The inspirational ways that Allen gives back to the youth and disadvantaged in his home country
How coaches can bring you to heights that you couldn’t have achieved alone
