Smashing the Glass Ceiling in a Male-Dominated World with Veena Jetti

In this episode, the founder and CEO of Vive Funds, Veena Jetti talks about how from being a woman with immigrant parents who left their home country to live the American dream to smashing the glass ceiling in the real estate business.


Always be grateful to your parents

Being a woman, from an ethnic minority, or a child of immigrants should not hinder you in making a name for yourself.

Change your mindset. Just because you don’t have the connections or resources in building a business, doesn’t mean you won’t be able to achieve your dreams. Take each journey one step at a time.

If you approach things from an abundance mindset,  you will have better results.

Push yourself beyond your boundaries.

You’re only as strong as your team. Build a team that you can benefit from and vice versa.

It’s important to hear the voice of each person on your team.
