Big Questions with Cal Fussman

Jun 12, 2018

Cal learns what it’s like to be Warren Buffett on the inside and a piñata on the outside. Nely is a Cuban immigrant who became an entrepreneur as a teenager after overhearing her mother and father wonder how they were going to pay the bills to put her through Catholic school. Now, she shares the principles of her tremendous success through her book, Self Made, and by building a movement to lift Latinas called Adelante. The principles of Nely’s success – like: Turn pain into profit – are universal.


Takeaways from this episode:

  • Why the Latinx market is the biggest, most powerful consumer base in the U.S.
  • The tenacity that took Nely from near-poverty to powerful executives, though not without ups and downs along the way.
  • Nely's goal to empower Hispanic women and men to own their power and numbers in the U.S.
